Amazon has the Sigma DP1 on sale for $399, today only. The DP1 is unique in that it’s got an SLR-sized sensor stuffed in a point and shoot-sized body. Other features include 14-megapixel photos, a 2.5-inch LCD, JPEG and RAW image recording, and SD(HC)/MMC card compatibility.
Here’s more from the product description:
The DP1 is a completely new type of camera offering the full specs and high image quality of a DSLR in the body of a compact camera. It is powered by the 14-megapixel Foveon X3 direct-image-sensor, which can reproduce high-definition images rich in gradation and impressive three-dimensional detail. It is possible to record images in RAW or the widely used JPEG in four resolution modes. It offers five Exposure modes and three Metering modes as well as being equipped with a built-in flash with the Guide Number of 6, hot shoe, neck strap and 2.5-inch TFT color LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 pixels. The DP1 has the high resolution and functionality of an SLR, plus adaptability in terms of accessories, all built into a small body.
