About - Sigma DP2 Merill

The Sigma DP2 Merill is a 15-megapixel camera with no optical zoom and has a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 45mm. It has a 2.8-inch LCD (920,000 pixels).

Because it does not accept interchangeable lenses, we consider this model an advanced point-and-shoot.

The camera has a maximum aperture of f/2.8. The camera's shutter speed range is 30 seconds to 1/2000 of a second.

The DP2 Merill stores photos and video on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards but has no on-board storage. It captures images as JPG or RAW files at a top resolution of 4704 x 3136 and SD-resolution video as AVI files at a top resolution of 640 x 480.

Like most digital cameras, this model comes with a proprietary rechargeable battery.

This advanced point-and-shoot has 9 autofocus points. It also includes an exposure compensation control that can be set at +/-3 EV.

The DP2 Merill measures 5.1 inches wide by 3 inches high by 2.8 inches deep, and weighs 14 ounces (with battery, memory card, and strap).

About This Brand

This company is primarily a lens manufacturer, offering third-party lenses for most of the major SLR camera lines that are often less expensive than those from the SLR camera manufacturers. But it also produces select cameras, including an SD series SLR and several high-end DP series compacts, which capture images on uniquely designed Foveon sensors.
