Sigma DP2 Merrill: 40 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

6. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

7. video recording

8. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

9. pixel density

10. width

16. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

17. has a flash

A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

18. number of microphones

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

19. optical zoom

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

20. has a CMOS sensor

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

21. widest aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

22. has a serial shot mode

You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.

23. shoots raw

A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.

24. Has a hot shoe

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

25. exposure time

When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
