Redesigned in every aspect, including the sensor, engine, lens and body, the Sigma dp2 Quattro Digital Camera series embodies Sigma's philosophy of creating cameras that produce works of art. The dp2 is the first camera in the new Quattro series to be released, with a dp1 and dp3 Quattro to follow. The dp2 is stocked with a fixed 30mm 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 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 and better high ISO capabilities than its Merrill predecessors.

Features:
  • 29MP Foveon X3 Quattro Direct CMOS Image Sensor & TRUE III Image Processing Engine - The dp2 uses the APS-C-sized Foveon X3 CMOS image sensor which captures full-color information vertically as opposed to horizontally. This means that each pixel has accurate and complete color information, resulting in rich tones and smooth gradations. Also, since it captures color vertically, there is no need for color filters or a low-pass filter, further increasing image quality for an equivalent resolution of about 39MP. This camera utilizes the latest generation of this technology, named Quattro due to the 1:1:4 ratio of the pixel layers, with 20MP on the top layer and 4.9MP on each of the bottom two. This simultaneously reduces file size and increases resolution, making the camera faster and lowers the power consumption. This speed increase is also due to the third generation Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine, or TRUE III image processing engine. The processor is optimized for handling the complex image data recorded by the sensor and produces high quality imagery.
  • 30mm f/2.8 Prime Lens - Equipped with a 30mm f/2.8 prime lens, this camera provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 45mm, a standard length. It also has a relatively fast aperture of f/2.8, resulting in quality images even in low-light conditions. Additionally, with a 9-blade diaphragm it will produce smooth out-of-focus areas at any aperture.
  • 3.0" LCD Monitor - The dp2 features a 3.0" TFT LCD display with 920,000 pixels for shooting and reviewing your images. This monitor is also where you can change settings for your shooting needs and preferences.
  • RAW Image Capture - Full 14-bit RAW images can be captured with data for every pixel included, meaning 5,424 x 3616 on the top layer, and 2,712 x 1,808 on the subsequent two pixel layers. You can also shoot with JPEG and produce images with resolutions as high as 7,680 x 3,296.
  • Full Exposure Control - Program, aperture priority, shutter speed priority, and full manual modes are included for complete control over the look of your photographs. This gives you access to the ISO settings from 100-6400 in 1/3 steps and a shutter speed from 1/2000 sec all the way to 30 seconds. Additionally, there is exposure compensation available from -3 to +3 EV.
  • Auto and Manual Focusing - Contrast-detect autofocus is available with 9-points Select Mode in addition to Free Move Mode and Face Detection AF. Also, the lens itself has a focusing ring for manual focusing.
  • Color Modes - The camera features 11 different color modes for a variety of effects, including Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Portrait, Landscape, Cinema, Sunset Red, Incandescent, Fluorescent, Color Temperature, Flash, and Custom.
