Sigma Corporation manufacturer and service provider of some of the most impressive lines of lenses, cameras and flashes, finally announces the pricing and availability of its new DP2x compact camera.

The DP2x was introduced by Sigma back in February, only to leave out details on the camera’s cost and availability to the market. Just recently, Sigma confirms that the high-end compact cam will be available on the last week of April, for $800.

“The DP cameras have been extremely popular with Sigma’s camera users, and we know that they will be very pleased with the latest enhancements to our DP2 series,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America.

Sigma DP2x features the 14-megapixel FOVEON X3® direct image sensor (2,652× 1,768× 3 layers), that’s said to be twelve times larger than those found in similarly-sized cameras, along with an Analog Front End (AFE) and high-speed auto focus. AFE is also used in the DP1x compact digital camera and SD15 DSLR and converts full color data, which the FOVEON X3® capture system records, into a digital signal. This enables the DP2X to reproduce high-definition and richly colored images. Furthermore, the new AF algorithm provides high-speed auto focus, ensuring handy shooting.
