Sigma DP2x

“From the days of film compact cameras to the current digital era there has always been a demand for a compact camera of superior quality. The desire has been SLR, and now DSLR, quality in a pocketable package. Leica, Konica, Nikon, Contax and others have been in this market segment and now we have the Sigma DP2x, pitching itself as “a full spec compact digital camera with all the power of DSLR”. Of particular interest is the use of the Foveon sensor with all three primary colours being received at each pixel site.”
