Sigma DP3 Merrill With 46 Megapixel Foveon X3 Sensor Announced
Sigma DP3 Merrill with 46 Megapixel Foveon X3 sensor announced. The Sigma DP3 Merrill is the next generation of cameras from the manufacturer and offers a Foveon X3 image sensor with 46 megapixels to hand, offering 4,800×3,200×3 layers and 44 recording megapixels 4,704×3,136×3 layers.
Sigma’s SD1 Merrill is the company’s flagship 15MPx3 DSLR. It is the first camera to use the latest APS-C Foveon sensor, which detects three-color data at each location, giving what Sigma says is resolution equivalent to a 30MP conventional Bayer design. In our review, we’ve used both an original SD1 and SD1 Merrill, which are identical in terms of function and output. Does the no live view, no video SD1 deliver enough to carve out its own niche?
