Manufacturer’s Description

The 23.5�15.7mm full-colour Foveon X3 direct image sensor (Generation name "Merrill"), featured in the SIGMA DP2 Merrill, incorporates 46 effective megapixels (4,800�3,200�3 layers) and 44 recording megapixels (4,704�3,136�3 layers). The Foveon X3 direct image sensor captures all primary RGB colours at each and every pixel location with 3 layers, ensuring the capture of full and complete colour. Since color moir� is not generated, the use of a low-pass filter is not required, meaning light and colour are captured by the 46 megapixel 23.5�15.7mm full-colour X3 Merrill sensor with a three-dimensional feel.
