Manufacturer’s Description

Can a camera change your life?

In March 2008 the Sigma DP1 was born. It was unique. And it created a new category of compact cameras with large sensors and precision optics on a par with DSLRs.

With compact take-everywhere convenience wedded to genuine photographic excellence, the Sigma DP Series was designed for creative artists.

The Sigma DP1 Merrill inherits the spirit of the DP Series, delivering the imaging performance of Sigma's flagship DSLR, the SD1 Merrill, in a compact package.

Sigma's full color capture system creates clear, sharp images with a uniquely three-dimensional feel.

With its much higher pixel count, the larger 46MP new-generation sensor brings you breathtaking definition, richly graduated tonality and true-to-life texture. Laudatory reviews of the Sigma DP2 Merrill, the DP1 Merrill's sister model, testify to the overwhelmingly honest beauty of this sensor's image quality.
