Combining the 29MP Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor with the TRUE III image processing engine, the Sigma DP1 Quattro is able to create images with an equivalent resolution of 39 megapixels. This is thanks to its unique sensor design, which uses layers of pixels to capture the colour data of the red, green, and blue spectra vertically, requiring no interpolation. The bottom line is that this produces a sharper image with better colour gradations.
This sophisticated sensor and processor combination is paired with a 19mm lens, which provides an equivalent field of view of 28mm on the APS-C sensor. The lens is a large-aperture model with a maximum f-stop of f/2.8, making it useful in low light and fantastic for portraits. Rounding out the package is a 3.0" 920k-dot TFT LCD, which makes it easy to compose and monitor images.
