The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the new Sigma DP1x compact digital camera, incorporating a “TRUE II” image processing engine, as used in the Sigma DP2 and SD15 digital SLR. This new DP1x includes the “TRUE II” image processing engine, improving the imageprocessing time, as well as a new AF algorithm, providing high speed auto focusing. In addition, the user interface has been unified with the DP2 series by changing the Set Up Menu and adopting the QS (Quick Set) button. This provides photographers easier operation of the camera controls when the DP1x is used with the DP2 series. The DP1x has three metering modes, Evaluative Metering, Center Weighted Average Metering and Spot Metering. The supplied image processing software, “Sigma Photo Pro 4.0”, converts RAW data quickly and easily. The DP1x has compact dimensions of 113.3mm/4.5in (W) x 59.5mm/2.3in (H) x 50.3mm/2.0in (D).
