The Sigma dp3 Quattro Digital Camera is a state-of-the-art compact digital camera, which utilizes the same Foveon X3 image sensor and TRUE II engine processor as its DSLR counter part, the Sigma SD1 Merrill. This elegant compact camera is capable of unparalleled image quality and color saturation and its sleek design make it easy to carry with you. The build of the camera is not only solid and durable but it has a fixed focal length Sigma lens of equal quality. The fixed 50mm F2.8 lens which is the equivalent to a 75mm lens on a 35mm SLR camera and ensures that an image can reach its true potential. The DP3 Merrill includes new auto focusing technology such as "Face detection" which allows for accurate focusing when a face is detected as the subject. The DP3 Merrill is a unique creation made by craftsmen of the trade, truly a little camera that shoots big.

The dp3 uses the APS-C-sized Foveon X3 CMOS image sensor which captures color information vertically as opposed to horizontally. This means that each pixel has extremely accurate 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 resolution comparable to about 39 MP from Bayer array image sensors. Equipped with a 50mm f/2.8 prime lens, this camera provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 75mm for medium-telephoto shooting. Its maximum aperture of f/2.8 contributes to good-quality results even in low-light conditions and can be used to create separation of a subject from its background. This camera utilizes the latest generation of this technology, named Quattro due to the 1:1:4 ratio of the pixel layers, with 20 MP on the top layer and 4.9 MP 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.

The dp3 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. Full 14-bit RAW images can be captured with data for every pixel included, meaning 5424 x 3616 on the top layer, and 2712 x 1808 on the subsequent two pixel layers. You can also shoot with JPEG and produce images with resolutions as high as 7680 x 3296. 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. 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. 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.
