japanese photography company sigma corporation has announced their newest generation of high image quality compact cameras with the introduction of the sigma dp series. the latest devices incorporate a 29 megapixel CMOS foveon X3 direct image sensor, which uses vertical color separation technology. the system leverages the light absorption characteristics of silicon, comprising three layers of photodiodes: each measures light at a different depth within the silicon, and each corresponds to a different RGB color – similar to traditional color film. this innovation results in realism with a full bodied three-dimensional feel.

 

featuring the only sensor in the world that can take in all optical information as it is, the camera is a winner at g-mark’s 2014 good design award.

the dp series comprises three fixed focal length cameras, each of which features a different basic focal length for a different fundamental photographic approach: the wide-angle dp1 quattro at 19mm, the standard dp2 quattro at 30mm, and the medium telephoto dp3 quattro at 50mm.
