Sigma DP2 owners may download a new firmware, Version 1.01, for their large-sensor compact digital camera.
The new firmware improves autofocus accuracy of the DP2 and reduces the intermittent freezing of the camera that can occur under certain conditions.
The Sigma DP2â€™s Foveon X3 image sensor measures 20.7mm x 13.8mm, 7x to 12x larger than the 1/1.8-inch to 1/2.5-inch image sensors used in ordinary compact digital cameras. The 14-megapixel sensor, in tandem with Sigmaâ€™s True II image processing engine and f/2.8 maximum aperture is said to deliver improved processing speed, operation and image quality.
