    Always had a soft spot for the Foveon sensor, think it gets under-rated quite a bit. Will be interesting to hear the way this camera performs in the real world.

    Really the equivalent of a 15mp camera in terms of resolution, as it has three stacked RGB layers.



    I'd love to have a crack at one though... looks like fun.

    Please don't hesitate to provide me with CC! I'd love to hear your thoughts regarding any of my images. Thanks!

    Why would Sigma put two buttons on the shutter finger rest?
    And two top dials on each side of the pentaprism?
    (Yes, I know they function for something, but why there?)

    Eberbachl. No, not quite like that. How ever the separate RGB data is integrated, 14 MPx is what I get out of the DP1. But, you are quite right about the fun it is.

    RaoulIsidro. I think Sigma is seeking deity status. They do things in strange ways, like, why only 320x240 video from an APS-C sensor? No live view, etc? But then, using the DP1 is fun for its challenges.

    CC, Image editing OK.

    Yep..agreed. The files are around 15mp but the resolving power is far greater.
    Should skake things up a little on the high MP end if they get the rest of the camera right.
    Word on the street is many companies will have their own post-bayer style sensor at sone point probably not too far in the future. Eg. Fuji has filed patents for similar types of sensors.

    I have read a few sources claiming the resolving power, although not worth 46mp like Sigma claim, is still worth 30mp or there abouts from a Bayer sensor..

    Either way best to wait and see how it performs head-to-head, it would be nice to see Fovean sensors have some success..

    I think the law of diminishing returns may start to apply. It looks nice, but would I be throwing my D40 in the bin and getting one of these?

    LOL at the '46MP' sensor

    I am disappointed about the 460,000 pixel res of the 3 inch LCD screen though, come on its nearly 2011!
