Sigma DP1 compact camera incorporates SLR-size sensor  
Thursday, March 8, 2007 | by Rob Galbraith
sigma_dp1.jpgFirst unveiled in September 2006, the Sigma DP1 is a compact digital camera whose Foveon X3 4.69 million image pixel sensor is the same as that found in the company's SD14 digital SLR. This makes the sensor many times larger than is typically found in a point-and-shoot, which should result in picture quality that is a cut above as well, despite the relatively low pixel count by today's standards.
 
The DP1 features the equivalent of a 28mm f/4 lens, RAW, JPEG and movie recording, 2.5 inch (diagonal), 230,000 pixel rear LCD, SD/SDHC slot, USB 2.0 and video out ports and both a built-in flash and hot shoe.
 
Accessories include optical viewfinder VF-11 and lens hood HA-11. More information about the DP1 is in a Sigma announcement today (though the price and ship date aren't given), and on a Sigma site dedicated to the new model. A PDF brochure is here.
