When it comes to effortlessly composing and shooting pictures, the Sigma dp0 Quattro Digital Camera with LVF-01 LCD Viewfinder Kit is the ideal tool for enthusiastic photographers. It features a 29 MP Foveon X3 Quattro Direct CMOS image sensor, which works in conjunction with the TRUE III image-processing engine for capturing color information vertically, instead of horizontally. This means that each pixel contains extremely accurate color information, which results in smooth gradations and rich tones. The included LVF-01 LCD viewfinder offers a 2.5× magnification for bringing distant subjects close to your line of sight. You may focus on subjects manually with the focusing ring or by activating the contrast-detect autofocus function.
