- I don't know about neutrality, as it's just a list of facts. Or factoids; the file sizes don't appear to be sensible, since as far as I know there's no medium or small RAW option. WP:SOFIXIT. Dicklyon (talk) 15:20, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
"...which makes it the world's first compact digital camera with an APS-C size sensor."
That's untrue on two counts.
1. A Foveon sensor is not generally considered to be APS-C-sized. It's significantly smaller.
2. I'm pretty sure there was a Sony digicam with a real APS-C sensor 2-3 years back. Can't remember the model right now...
- OK, I've removed that statement. Incidentally, my memory wasn't totally wrong, the other camera I was thinking of was the Sony DSC-R1. --RenniePet (talk) 20:58, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
- (January 9. 2009) You are wrong on both counts. First, the Foveon is only slightly smaller than APS-C, not "significantly" smaller. There are variations in the APS-C standard: Nikon's is 23.6x15.7mm. Canon's is 22.2x14.8mm. The Foveon is 20.7x13.8mm. That's only 1.5mm smaller on the long side. The next standard size down is Four Thirds, which is 17.3x13mm. The Foveon is actually closer to the APS-C than to Four Thirds, so referring to it as "APS-C sized" is not misleading. This is particularly true when you consider than the DP1's competitors are using senors that are less than 8x6mm! (For details, see the APS-C page.
- Secondly, the DP1 was the first compact camera to use an APS-C sized sensor. The Sony DSC-R1 you refer to is not a "compact" camera; it is a "bridge" camera. ("Bridge" cameras are larger than a compact but smaller than an SLR.)
Redirect page should be disambiguation
