Sigma launches two 14-megapixel cameras

updated 09:10 am EDT, Tue September 26, 2006

Sigma DP1 and SD14

Well-known for both its cameras and its lenses, Sigma on Tuesday released two new models that take advantage of its expertise in both areas. First introduced is the SD14, a 14-megapixel digital SLR which uses the unique Foveon sensor technology that overlaps three different color-specific sensors to improve image quality. Sigma also notes that the long-anticipated camera has a new viewfinder with 98% coverage of the final image and a sensor with a dust removal system. More unique is the new DP1 (pictured), which may well be the most full-featured point-and-shoot camera available. Though considerably more compact than the SD14, the DP1 shares the same 14-megapixel sensor as its more professional counterpart, clearly exceeding the 10-megapixel ceiling of this camera class. The camera also includes a 16.6mm F4 wide-angle lens and an improved image processing engine that can capture RAW as well as the more common JPEG format. Sigma is shipping the SD14 now for 1100 ($2090); the DP1 has not yet received formal launch details. Click through for photos of both models.
