Sigma DP2X compact camera announced and priced

Sigma Corporation has just announced the prices and availability date for their upcoming compact camera, the DP2X. The successor to the DP2 and DP2s features a 14 megapixel FOVEON X3 direct image sensor (2,652× 1,768× 3 layers) and now has an Analog Front End (AFE) as well as high-speed auto focus. The AFE converts full color data captured with the FOVEON X3 into digital signal, allowing for the reproduction of high-definition ad richly colored images. With the ability to capture RAW images, and a host of customizable controls, it sure looks like Sigma is attempting to replace Digital SLRs that have long dominated the camera scene. However, its video recording capabilities (QVGA 320 x 240 at 30 FPS) is quite a letdown and might be a deal breaker. The DP2X will be available for purchase late April with an MSRP of $800.
