Press Release: Sigma DP1 Digital Camera

The Sigma DP1, which arrived in the UK only two months ago, has already won two prestigious international awards.

TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) is made up of chief editors and technical editors from 27 Europe-wide publications. TIPA, who awarded the DP1 Best Prestige Camera 2008 said of the camera “Thanks to the fixed-focal-length 28mm f/4 lens, images produced by the DP1 have a quality comparable to some D-SLRs. Elegant, stylish and pleasant to use, the DP1 boasts an external viewfinder and a slick manual focus option for precise control. This luxury compact is a new departure or the digital compact, and reveals a promising line of development for the future.”

The Sigma DP1 has also recently been awarded the Camera Grand Prix 2008 Editors Award by the Camera Journal Press Club of Japan. The C.J.P.C was established in 1963 and is formed by chief editors, industrial and academic experts, technical writers and professional photographers within various photographic related organizations. 170 different camera models were considered for the award and this is the third time Sigma have won this award in four years.

The Sigma DP1 is the first compact camera to feature an APS-C size images sensor. 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 DP1 incorporates TRUE (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine), the world’s first image processing engine suited for Foveon three silicon embedded layer direct image sensor. The unique image processing algorithm, which has been developed throughout the development of the SD9, SD10 and SD14 cameras, is incorporated into TRUE.
