Take landscape and nature shots with finely tuned color using the Sigma DP1. This high-end compact camera features the same unique Foveon X3 direct image sensor, with 14-megapixel color photosites, used in the SD14 D-SLR for capturing full and accurate color image information. The sensor uses three silicon embedded layers of photo sensors, stacked to take advantage of silicon’s ability to absorb red, green and blue light at different respective depths. The sensor is physically as big as sensors on other compact digital cameras by a factor of 10 to 12. The DP1 features a 16.6mm ƒ/4 lens (35mm equivalent of 28mm), a 2.5-inch LCD and shoots RAW and JPEG formats.
A five-hour drive north of Anchorage, Alaska, brings you to the eastern section of the Alaska Range and the beautiful Delta Mountains, where jagged peaks, splintered glaciers, boreal forests, turquoise lakes and milky rivers can be found. The Delta Mountains are the most accessible mountains in the range and are surrounded by three of Alaska’s main highways—the Glenn, the Richardson and the Alaska.
