Sigma widens its dp camera lineup with the new dp1 Quattro featuring the latest Foveon X3 sensor
Gentec International announces the launch of Sigma’s dp1 Quattro digital camera, one of their new generation of high image quality compact cameras incorporating the newly developed Foveon X3 direct image sensor also found in the dp2 Quattro announced earlier this year. The new Sigma dp1 Quattro incorporates a fixed 19mm F2.8 leaf- shutter lens (equivalent to a 28mm lens on a 35mm SLR), optimized for the Quattro sensor to maximize the sensor performance and sharpness from corner to corner.
Unique among image sensors, the Foveon direct image sensor is similar to traditional colour film in that its multiple layers capture all of the information that visible light transmits. Along with Sigma’s proprietary image processing technology, this sensor produces incredible resolution with richer, deeper colours and a breathtaking realism.
Every aspect of the new dp1 Quattro has been completely redesigned when compared to the previous dp1 camera, from the sensor and processing engine to the lens and body. The dp1 Quattro embodies Sigma’s philosophy of creating cameras that deliver the highest level of performance to produce photographic works of art.
Pricing for the dp1 Quattro has not yet been announced, but availability is expected in December.
