Sigma Introduces the 46-megapixel DP3 Merrill

Sigma_DP3_Merrill-thumb-470x389-18236.jpgSigma, known for their aftermarket lens options and unique cameras, has announced the all new DP3 Merrill; a 46-megapixel fixed lens camera. This unit uses a large Foveon X3 image sensor, which measures 23.5x15.7mm, and is mated to a fast 50mm f/2.8 lens. The massive 45MB image files are processed by the Dual TRUE II image processing engine, and you frame your photos with a high resolution 3.0-inch LCD. 

While most of this camera's features are quite impressive, its movie mode leaves one wanting, with a maximum resolution of just 480p (640x480). 

See our Sigma DP3 Merrill preview for more details.
