Along with the new-generation Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor, virtually every aspect of the Sigma DP1 Merrill has received a thorough upgrade. We have optimized the lenses, body and user interface to bring out the larger sensor’s maximum potential. Although the sensor is larger, the body is as compact as ever.
In line with our philosophy of providing SLR-like control, we have provided this camera with a user interface that will be familiar to photographers who have handled Sigma SD series models.
Similarly, a new focusing ring on the lens lets you manually adjust focus with your left hand while keeping your right on the shutter release.
