The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the new generation of high image quality compact
camera, the “SIGMA dp1 Quattro ”that incorporates a newly developed Foveon X3 direct image sensor
(generation name: “Quattro”).
Unique and without peer among image sensors, the Foveon direct image sensor is similar to traditional
color film in that its multiple layers capture all of the information that visible light transmits. Along with
Sigma’s proprietary image processing technology, this sensor produces incredible resolution, precise
gradation, gorgeous color, breathtaking realism with a 3D feel. In other words, full-bodied image quality.
The “SIGMA dp1 Quattro” incorporates 19mm F2.8 (equivalent to a 28mm lens on a 35mm SLR) high
performance wide angle lens, which is optimized for the Quattro sensor to maximize the sensor
performance, not only around the focusing point, but also other areas in the image. With the release
of “SIGMA dp1 Quattro” , photographers can suit cameras to each photography style; “SIGMA dp1
Quattro” for wide angle photography and “SIGMA dp2 Quattro” for standard photography.
