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.
