Product description
Announced Sep 26, 2006
Discuss in the Sigma Camera Talk forum

The DP1 uses the same Foveon X3 sensor as Sigma's SD14 DSLR and that makes it the first compact camera ever to be made with an SLR-sized sensor (it's around the same size as the Four-Thirds format). But it's not only the sensor that differentiates the new Sigma from the scores of compact cameras on the market today. With its no-nonsense feature set and 28mm (35mm equiv.) prime lens the DP1 is a million miles away from the superzooms, smile modes and face detection functions that are nowadays standard on so many compact digital cameras. Image quality is amazing for a compact, and if you can live with the slow performance, limited feature set and idiosynchratic operation it's the nearest thing yet to a pocketable SLR alternative.
