Redesigned in every aspect, including the sensor, engine, lens and body, the dp Quattro Compact Camera series embodies Sigma’s philosophy of creating cameras that produce works of art. The dp1 is the second camera in the new Quattro series to be released, with the dp2 currently available and the dp3 Quattro to follow. The dp1 is stocked with a fixed and newly designed 19mm 2.8 standard lens designed specifically and lined up perfectly with its new Foveon X3 Quattro sensor to create exceptional images. Renowned for unmatched image quality, the Foveon image sensor is Sigma’s proprietary technology which captures transmitted light in a vertical 3 layer sensor with dedicated layers to Red, Green and Blue.
The new 1:1:4 structure (bottom 1: middle 1: top 4) offers higher resolution that is equivalent to 39 megapixels for conventional color filter array sensors.In addition to this ultra-high resolution, the sensor offers enhanced noise characteristics and faster processing of high-volume image data.
The only one of its kind, the Foveon sensor produces full bodied images, rich in tone, gradation, and texture with a 3D feel to them. The new Foveon X3 Quattro offers an even higher level of image purity with an increase in resolution to the previous Foveon sensor, sure to bring about new experiences in your photography. The dp2 Quattro was designed and created for true artistic endeavors and also touts improved processing speed, autofocus performance, battery life and better high ISO capabilities than its Merrill predecessors.
