The Sigma DP2s Digital Camera is a high-end compact digital camera equipped with a 14 megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor. Featuring Sigma's unique 'True' image processing engine and a 24.2mm (41mm equivalent) f/2.8 lens, this compact camera provides the same superb image quality as found in the Sigma SD14 professional SLR.
With the DP2s, it is possible to record images in RAW or the widely used JPEG in four resolution modes. The AF algorithm provides high speed auto focusing, and the Power Save Mode lowers battery consumption. When this mode is enabled, a greater number of pictures can be taken with a single charge of the battery. The back of the camera is designed to help you recognize all of the controls. Furthermore, it offers five exposure modes and three metering modes as well as being equipped with a built-in flash, hot shoe, and 2.5" TFT color LCD monitor.
Sigma Photo Pro 4.0 is supplied with the DP2s camera. The software makes processing RAW images quick and easy. It has a superior image processing algorithm and improved compatibility with multi core CPUs. It provides better image processing speed and improved image quality. Incorporation of a new noise reduction algorithm reduces Chroma and Luminance noise when processing X3F files taken at ISO400 or higher. It is possible to adjust the level of reduction for noise just by moving the slider in the control pallet.
