Sigma Lens DP2 14 Megapixel High Definition Digital Compact Camera - Black

Price: $631.95
The Sigma DP-2 Digital Point & Shoot Camera features a 14 Mega Pixel FOVEON X3 direct image sensor (2,652 x 1,768 x 3 layers). The size of the image sensor used in the DP2 cameras is 20.7mm x 13.8mm. It is approximately seven to twelve times larger than the 1/1.8 inch to 1/2.5 inch image sensors used in ordinary compact digital cameras. The pixel size of the image sensor is 7.8?m. The large photodiodes deployed at a large pixel pitch capture pure, rich light efficiently and give the DP1 its high resolution and richly-graduated tones. The DP2 incorporates "TRUE II" which is an improved version of "TRUE" (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine), the world's first image processing engine suited for the three silicon embedded layer direct image sensor. The unique image-processing algorithm, which has been developed throughout the development of the SD series digital SLR cameras and the DP1, is incorporated into "TRUE II". The DP2 is equipped with a 24.2 F2.8 large aperture lens, equivalent to 41mm on a 35mm SLR camera, which has been designed exclusively for the DP2. Two high refractive index glasses and two molded glass aspherical lenses provide superior image quality and allow compact construction. The Super Multi Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting. SLR-sized image sensor and the large aperture of F2.8 combination provide natural shallow depth-of-field and attractive bokeh effect. The DP2 includes a RAW recording mode for retaining full image capture detail of the utmost quality plus a JPEG recording format for convenience. The RAW data format uses lossless compression for more compact, yet uncompromised, data files. The RAW data format of the DP2 keeps brightness and color data in a 1:1 ratio without relying on interpolation. Each pixel location captures the full color of RGB data which, when processed in Sigma Photo Pro, will preserve the balance of the natural data for the best photos with the best image quality. The DP2 comes complete with SIGMA Photo Pro software, a RAW image developer that converts all RAW data quickly and easily. Adjustments can be made in three separate modes. The X3F Mode stores the original settings of the image at the point of capture. In the Auto Adjustment Mode, the software analyzes and automatically makes adjustments to the RAW data. The Custom Mode allows the photographer to make individual adjustments. The photographer can make changes easily and quickly by simply adjusting the slider controls within the software.
