Press Release - September 26, 2006
The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new Sigma DP1 compact digital camera
This compact digital camera is powered by the Foveon® X3™ image sensor, which captures all RGB colors at each and every pixel
A 16.6mm F4 Sigma lens, with a wide angle field of view equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm film camera, has been developed to maximize the image quality in conjunction with the full colour capture image sensor.
The DP1 takes advantage of the image sensor's superior technology to capture accurate, full colour image information.
Sigma's unique and powerful ‘True' image processor is incorporated into the DP1, enabling it to handle the large image files produced by the 14 megapixel sensor and reproduce exceptional definition with image quality equal to professional digital SLR cameras and on a par with top quality film. The Sigma DP1 is equipped with a large 2.5" TFT LCD monitor with 100% image preview, making confirmation of composition, focusing and exposure quick and easy. This compact camera includes JPEG recording format for speed and convenience and a RAW data (X3F) recording mode for retaining full image capture detail of the utmost quality.
