Description

46-Megapixel 24 x 16mm APS-C X3 Full-Color Image Sensor

The 46-megapixel (4800 x 3200 x 3 layers) 24 x 16mm APS-C X3 direct image sensor featured in the Sigma SD1 Merrill captures all primary RGB colors at each and every pixel location, ensuring the capture of full and complete color. Using three silicon-embedded layers of photo detectors, stacked vertically to take advantage of silicon’s ability to absorb red, green and blue light at different respective depths, it efficiently reproduces color more accurately, and offers sharper resolution, pixel for pixel, than any conventional image sensor. Since color moiré is not generated, the use of a low-pass filter is not required, meaning light and color, generated by the 46 megapixel sensor is captured with a three-dimensional feel.

Dual TRUE II Image Processing Engine

The SD1 Merrill incorporates a dual “TRUE (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) II” image processing engine which improves the processing speed and overall quality of the final image. The unique image-processing algorithm provides high-resolution power and reproduces high definition images with richly graduated tones.

CF Card

The SD1 Merrill accepts the TYPE I CF card. This camera is compatible with the UDMA, enabling fast processing of large amounts of data.
It is not possible to use Microdrives and TYPE II CF cards

11-Point Twin Cross Sensor

The autofocus system features an 11-point twin cross sensor. The shifted twin cross type sensor improves AF accuracy.

Magnesium Body

The Sigma SD1 Merrill adopts a lightweight yet solid magnesium-alloy body designed to withstand rough use and shocks in harsh conditions.

Weather-Resistant Design

Buttons and connections benefit from O-ring sealing connections to prevent dust and water getting inside the camera body.

3.0″ TFT Color LCD Monitor

The SD1 Merrill camera features a 3.0″ TFT color monitor. This 460,000 pixel resolution LCD monitor benefits from a wide viewing angle, making it easy to check focusing and composition.

Dust Protector/IR Filter

The installed dust protector guards the sensor from dust or other particles, and sits just behind the lens mount in front of the reflex mirror. Beyond a dust protector, this is also an infrared-blocking filter, and can be removed in order to increase the camera’s sensitivity to IR light for creative, scientific, and astrophotography applications.

Optional Lenses

The SD1 Merrill can be used with over 40 Sigma lenses such as ultra-wide, ultra-telephoto, macro and fisheyes which adopt the latest technology such as the FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass, SLD glass, Aspherical lenses, Sigma’s own unique Optical Stabilizer function, Hyper Sonic Motor and Sigma’s Super Multi Layer Coating. They meet the various and demanding requirements of all types of photographers.
