The Sigma DP1x Digital Camera is a compact digital camera with a secret weapon--a unique (among compact cameras) 14.06 megapixel Foveon X3 20.7 x 13.8mm direct image sensor that's 8 times the size of a sensor in a typical compact digital camera. Working in tandem with Sigma's unique True II image processing engine and a 16.6mm (28mm equivalent) f/4 lens, this super-sized sensor in a compact camera provides the same superb image quality as found in the Sigma SD14 professional SLR. With the DP1x, it is possible to record images in RAW or JPEG format in four resolution modes. Furthermore, it offers five exposure modes and three metering modes as well as being equipped with a built-in flash, hot shoe, and 2.5" TFT color LCD monitor. 

In addition to the included accessories listed below, the DP1x is compatible with numerous optional accessories that will improve the functionality of your camera. Optional accessories include the EF-140 External Flash, the VF-11 External Optical View Finder, the HA-11 Lens Hood Adapter,  AML-1 Close-up Lens, a 46mm EX DG UV Multi-coated Filter, a 46mm EX DG Circular Polarizer Multi-coated Filter, the HC-11 Hard Case for DP1x, the SC-11 Soft Case for DP1x and the SAC-3 AC adapter.

Foveon X3 Image Sensor
The 14.06 megapixel FOVEON X3 direct image sensor (2652 x 1768 x 3 layers), is the same as used in the Sigma SD14 digital SLR. 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.
Wide-Angle Lens
A 16.6mm f/4 Sigma lens, with field of view equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm film camera, has been developed to maximize the image quality in conjunction with the full color capture image sensor, and the wide aperture of this lens allows users to get better shots in low light.
Sigma 'True II' Image Processor
Sigma's unique and powerful 'True II' (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) image processor is incorporated into the DP1x, enabling it to handle the large image files produced by the 14.06 megapixel sensor and reproduce exceptional definition with image quality equal to professional digital SLR cameras and on a par with top quality film.
Versatile Focus System
The AF area of the DP1x is equipped with 9 focusing points, and it is possible to manually select the desired focusing point of the 9 available. The camera also provides Manual Focus for photographers who like to take more control or for use when autofocus or focus lock is not effective.
Accurate Color
The DP1x takes advantage of the image sensor's superior technology to capture accurate, full color image information.
Advanced Metering
The DP2 has three metering modes, Evaluative Metering, Center Weighted Average Metering and Spot Metering. It is also possible to select the exposure mode from Auto, Program AE, Aperture Priority AE, Shutter Priority AE or Manual. Exposure compensation can be set in 1/3 stop increments from +3.0 to -3.0 stops and an auto bracketing function is also available.
Built-in Flash and Hot Shoe
The built-in pop-up flash has a guide number of 6 (ISO100/m), and the flash has settings for Normal Flash, Red-Eye Reduction Flash and Slow Synchro Mode; plus it features flash exposure compensation in 1/3 stops increments. The DP1x camera is also equipped with a hot shoe, allowing use of a dedicated external flashgun (EF-140 DG) providing TTL flash exposure, or a high performance view finder (VF-11).
Movie Recording
The camera can record movies with QVGA resolution (320 x 240) at a frame rate of 30 fps, plus the digital zoom function can be used during movie shooting.
2.5" LCD Display
The Sigma DP1x is equipped with a large 2.5" TFT color LCD monitor with 100% image preview, making confirmation of composition, focusing and exposure quick and easy.
Records JPEG & RAW Files
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.
Includes Sigma Photo Pro Software
The DP1x comes complete with SIGMA Photo Pro software, a RAW image developer that converts all RAW data quickly and easily. Adjustments can be made in different modes. The X3F Mode 3 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 (exposure, contrast, shadow, highlight, saturation, sharpness and fill-light for example). The photographer can make changes easily and quickly by simply adjusting the slider controls within the software.
