Though this camera was announced some time ago, we've received notification that a new, high-end compact digital camera from Sigma will reach Australia in the next few weeks.
The camera utilises the same Foveon X3 (14MP) sensor as the acclaimed Sigma SD-14 digital SLR, making it the first compact camera to include such a large sensor. This is considered by many to be the key differentiator between compact and SLR digital cameras - the DP-1 attempts bridge this gap.
The camera also sports a 16.6mm f4 (equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm camera) wide-angle lens and 2.5-inch LCD screen.
The camera will retail for around AU$990.
More information on this product as it becomes available.
