The Sigma DP1 Merrill is a large-sensor compact camera capable of extremely high quality images. It’s based around Sigma’s exclusive APS-C Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor, which records each RGB color on its own layer, allowing extreme color accuracy and fine detail. While the camera provides 44MP of image detail, each of the three sensor layers is recording 14.75MP, thus giving you a file with the dimensions of 14.75MP.
The DP1 Merrill features a 19mm f/2.8 lens, which equates to a 28mm focal length post sensor-crop factor. It has a 3.0" 920K rear LCD screen that’s used for both image composition and review, and allows fully manual control options as well as the standard, pick-up-and-shoot Auto mode. It captures both RAW and JPG images to SDHC memory card, and uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (2 included).
Please Note: The DP1 Merrill does not accept SDXC memory cards!
