The Sigma DP2x is the latest DP2 series model and incorporates AFE (Analog Front End) and high speed auto focus. AFE is used to converts full color 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.
The size of the image sensor used in the DP2x camera is 20.7mm x 13.8mm. It is approximately seven to twelve times larger than the 1/1.8inch to 1/2.5inch image sensors used in ordinary compact digital cameras. The pixel size of the image sensor is 7.8µm. The large photodiodes deployed at a large pixel pitch capture pure, rich light efficiently and give the DP2x its high resolution and richly-graduated tones.
The DP2x uses the same 14 megapixel (2652×1768×3 layers) direct image sensor as the SD15 and DP1x. Utilizing the special features of silicon, which is penetrated to different depths by different wavelengths of light, this direct image sensor succeeds in full-color capture with the full RGB in a single-pixel location. Since the moire is not generated, use of a low-pass filter is not needed because full information of light and color can be captured with three-dimensional feeling.
The DP2x incorporates "TRUE II" which is an improved version of "TRUE" (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine), the world's first image processing engine suited for the three silicon embedded layer direct image sensor. The unique image-processing algorithm, which has been developed throughout the development of the SD series digital SLR cameras and DP1x, is incorporated into "TRUE II".
The DP2x is equipped with a 24.2mm F2.8 large aperture lens, equivalent to 41mm on a 35mm SLR camera, which has been designed exclusively for DP2x. Two high refractive index glass elements and two molded glass aspherical lenses provide superior image quality and allow for the compact construction. The Super Multi Layer coating reduces flare and ghosting. The SLR-sized image sensor and the large aperture of F2.8 combination provide natural shallow depth-of-field and an attractive bokeh effect.
The DP2x is equipped with a pop up (manual) built-in flash. It is possible to use Normal Flash, Red-Eye Reduction Flash and Slow Synchro Mode. It also features flash exposure compensation in 1/3 stops increments.
Manual Focus is available for use when autofocus or focus lock is not desired. It is also possible to magnify the display to ensure precise focusing.
