Sigma DP1
Press Release:
The image sensor uses three silicon embedded layers of photo sensors, stacked to take advantage of silicon�s ability to absorb red, green and blue light at different respective depths.

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.

  • 14 megapixel direct image sensor as used in the Sigma SD14 digital SLR.
  • Featuring Sigma�s new, unique �True� image processing engine.
  • 16.6mm F4 lens (28mm equivalent).

A digital Ricoh GR1 was my thoughts exactly, also.

It's getting closer to my ideal compact, but.

1. 28mm is a tad too wide so can we gave a 35mm version.

2. I think the lack of a built in optical finder for both this and the GRD is a great pity and kills my interest completely.
I was thinking a flash hotshoe and a faster lens would tempt me but, we'll wait and see.

I love the Foveon sensor - in the right situation. This is very tempting...
