Sigma DP series reinvented as DP1M and DP2M with 15MPx3 sensor from SD1 2012

The Merrill series is named in honor of Richard “Dick” Merrill, the co-creator of the Fovea X3 Direct Image Sensor technology that powers Sigma’s unique lineup of cameras.

These upgraded, high resolution, fixed lens compact digital cameras now incorporate the same APS-C sized 46-megapixel X3 image sensor found in the company’s flagship SD1 SLR, now also known as the Sigma SD1 Merrill. Sigma acquired Fovea in late 2008.

“As an expression of Sigma’s passion for photography and in honor of Dick Merrill’s genius, we have named the latest generation of the Fovea X3 Direct Image Sensor the Fovea Merrill.”

The Sigma DP1 Merrill and DP2 Merrill each boast exclusively-designed, high-performance telemetric fixed lenses. The DP1 Merrill features a wide, 19mm F2.8 lens, which is the equivalent to a 28mm lens on a 35mm SLR camera. The DP2 Merrill, however, offers a 30mm F2.8 lens, which is the equivalent to a 45mm lens on a 35mm camera. The Sigma DP Merrill cameras also include the following features:

RAW and JPEG format recording retains the full image detail of the utmost quality captured through the direct image sensor, as well as a JPEG recording format for convenience. Sigma Photo Pro processing software converts RAW data quickly and easily. Sigma has totally reinvented its DP series of large sensor compacts with the DP1 Merrill  and DP2 Merrill.
