Sigma DP3 Merrill Digital Camera Price & Specs
The Sigma DP3 Merrill is equipped with the same 46MP Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor as in the SD1 Merrill DSLR. This provides luminance resolution equivalent to that of a 30MP CFA sensor as measured on the standard B&W resolution chart used in conventional digital camera resolution testing. Eye-opening sharpness. Natural edge definition. Finely graduated tonality. Here is a camera that redefines “high image quality” and invites you into a fresh dimension of visual experience.
The Sigma DP3 Merrill’s Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor utilizes the characteristics of silicon to absorb shorter wavelengths (blue) near its surface and longer wavelengths (green, then red) at deeper levels. This three-layer full color capture system can record the full color information at each pixel location, enabling richly detailed, vividly colorful images, without the compromises of color interpolation required by conventional sensors.
