Sigma adds DP1s with RAW-plus-JPEG shots

updated 07:25 am EDT, Fri October 2, 2009

Sigma intros upgraded DP1s compact cam

Sigma this morning saw fit to upgrade its original Foveon-based camera with features borrowed from the DP2 as well as others. The DP1s gets the Quick Set shortcut function from the second-generation camera and assigns it to the digital zoom button found on the original DP1 controls. It also supports shooting RAW and JPEG images at the same time, much like DSLRs.

Image quality has also been given a minor improvement with better handling of historically difficult backlit subjects. The DP1s continues to use a 14-megapixel sensor and has a fixed-zoom 16.6mm f4 lens, though no mention has been made of changes to price or availability versus the original DP1.

    fixed-zoom????

    Fixed-zoom? Is that anything like stationary acceleration or a forward-looking rear-view mirror?

    More stuff from Sigma that suck

    If it says Sigma, you know it's a piece of s***.

    The whole Foveon thing has been a failure since the beginning. But if you like Homer Simpson skin tones, be my guest.

    Oh, and it's not really 14 megapixels. Sigma is infamous for their twisted math. The real number is closer to 4.6 megapixels.
