Bhandol Posted February 26, 2016 Share Posted February 26, 2016 Doesn't the Sigma DP2 Merrill have an APS-C sensor? If so, it shou Folk have reported images from Sigma DP2 Merrill passing QC from as long ago as 2014 . . . usually with qualification that the camera should NOT be used for any lowish light situation. dd Perhaps 46 MP ( I believe) crammed onto an APS-C sensor might be part of the problem. Update: It appears that this camera's 46 MP sensor actually produces 15 MP images (?). Reviewers sound impressed with the IQ. Off the top of my head, maybe the three colours? You are correct. Each site on the sensor has three filters for red, blue and green wavelengths. It is called the "Fovon" sensor. As we all know the Bayer sensor use individual sites for the differing wavelengths. Allan Thanks. I obviously need to bone up on sensors. Interesting that a relatively expensive camera with an APS-C sensor would not be acceptable. So much for the reviews, I guess. The Sigma DP2 Merrill used correctly at it's base ISO 100 (Raw) can produce incredibly sharp detailed vibrant images that will have no problem passing if examined by QC. Ok, it takes forever to write a picture to card, and the Sigma Raw processing software is even slower, but the results are well worth the wait. Low light isn't a problem if you use a tripod, sure if you do something silly and go over ISO 200 with this camera, then things start to fall apart quality wise.
