Sigma has announced the pricing and availability for the company’s new DP2x compact camera.
The camera, which will be available for purchase in late April for the MSRP of $800, (Approximately rs. 36,000) is the successor to Sigma’s DP2 and DP2scameras.
The DP2x continues to feature the 14-megapixel FOVEON X3 direct image sensor (2,652× 1,768× 3 layers), and will now also include Analog Front End (AFE) and high-speed auto focus. AFE is also used in the DP1x compact digital camera and SD15 DSLR and converts full colour data, which the FOVEON X3 capture system records, into a digital signal. This enables the camera to reproduce high-definition and richly colored images. In addition, the new AF algorithm provides high-speed auto focus, ensuring convenient shooting.
