Sigma DP2x: Specifications Released

We have been looking into various cameras and DSLRs. We have seen the Ricoh CX5, the Fujifilm Finepix X100, a few Olympus cameras and the new Canon Rebel T3/T3i DSLRs. Now we are hearing reports of the new Sigma DP2x.

The Sigma DP2x has just had its specifications released so we thought we would have a look and report them to you. The camera has a revised version of the DP2 large-sensor compact camera. It has 14.06 million effective pixels (4.69 million x 3), it can record movie clips at 320 x 240, it has a 2.5” LCD, USB 2.0 connectivity and it uses SD/SDHC memory cards.

In the Sigma press release, they mention about the SLR-sized image sensor, they say that it is approximately 12 times larger than the ones used in the ordinary compact digital camera. Something else that it mentions is that the sigma DP2x features the 14 megapixel FOVEON X3 digital image sensor that works across 3 layers. What do you make of that?
