The long waited Sigma SP1 is nearly there, at least that’s what Sigma is teasing us right now. Sigma threw in the supersized 14 Megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor on a compact digital camera back in Photokina 2006, it surfaced again in PMA 2007, but the camera remained in coming soon status since then. They have updated the site with the following new themes.
Get Ready for a camera that belongs to no known category
The Camera no one’s made before
Now, a dream come true
A camera with principles
The Arrival of the SIGMA DP1. The worldwide debut, soon.
We expect to see the full announcement in a week. The huge sensor inside that compact body is quite a sight for sore eyes, but gets the darn thing out already!
