Sigma SD15 14MP X3 FOVEON CMOS Digital SLR with 3.0 inch LCD


Sigma SD15 14MP X3 FOVEON CMOS Digital SLR with 3.0 inch LCD

Sigma’s SD15 SLR camera is the latest model in Sigma’s SD series. Powered by the 14 megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor it can capture all primary RGB colors at each and every pixel location arranged in three layers. The new SD15 incorporates the “TRUE II” image processing engine which processes the large amount of data from the 14 megapixel direct image sensor. It also provides high resolution power and reproduces high definition images with impressive three-dimensional detail, rich in gradation. The camera adopts the SD card and incorporates a highly visible 3.0 inch LCD monitor, 77-segment AE sensor and AFE (Analog Front End). It provides high image quality and user friendly design. In addition, the durable shutter mechanism, which has a life of over 100,000 actuations, is ideal for the demand of digital photography.

  • 21 frames captured continuously in RAW mode
  • Large, highly visible 3.0′ TFT color LCD Monitor

    This review is from: Sigma SD15 14MP X3 FOVEON CMOS Digital SLR with 3.0 inch LCD (Electronics)

    I have owned several Sigma cameras and have a love/hate relationship with the breed. To generalize, I find them like an old person—rich in capability but somewhat slow and cantankerous to live with. I rail at my Sigmas but miss them when I leave them home.

    In any case, I purchased this SD15 to replace my SD14 which had white balance issues that I was tired of dealing with. This slightly refreshed version is vastly better at analyzing light and properly rendering it. Other improvements include better burst rates, improved processing engine, SD storage of images, and(importantly) a much cleaner user interface than presented on the SD14.

    Other comparably priced cameras are faster and more pixel-dense, yet I have found no substitute for the anticipation I feel when processing Sigma photos—they aren’t just records of images but, often, impressive interpretations of them.

    This review is from: Sigma SD15 14MP X3 FOVEON CMOS Digital SLR with 3.0 inch LCD (Electronics)

    I received my copy of the SD-15 in July 2010 after waiting for it for 2 months. It came with over 1000 shots already in the shot counter, but with a new camera warranty from Sigma USA. Don’t settle for anything less than a totally “legitimate” purchase from a real dealer. I didn’t: the Sigma USA warranty was the important thing. When I got it, I also got a Sigma 50-200 F4-5.6 OS lens for what I thought was a too-cheap price of $169. What an excellent combination this turned out to be!
    I was really waiting for the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 OS lens, but did not receive it until the end of December 2010 (Sigma-mount availability issues). Because of focus problems I ended up sending both camera and lens into Sigma USA service for (I guess you could call it) lens calibration (they had it back to me in a week). No such issue with the 50-200 F4-5.6 OS lens though, it was perfect from the beginning. After Sigma makes any lens for everybody else they make it available for Sigma cameras, so you need to cultivate a little patience (well worth the waiting). Go with OS (optically stabilized) lenses if you shoot in less-than-daylight conditions, since the SD-15 image quality does not hold up at speeds higher than ISO 400. My next (and possibly last) lens will be the Sigma 85mm F1.4 (I’m simply running out of money).
    If you are willing to shoot raw (don’t use the in-camera JPEG) and process the images with Sigma Photo Professional (free download from Sigma), you can get stunning results! I was not surprised by this because I started out with a Sigma DP2, which in my opinion is equally capable in the image quality area except it does not have an interchangeable lens. You also have to be willing to “fiddle” with either camera to coax out of it the best exposure, focus, and so on. Since I am a hobbyist and I enjoy this sort of “fiddling” I am very happy with my SD-15. The quality of the images makes it all worthwhile.
    Sigma won the megapixel wars by making a better pixel. The images resize very well to 4x JPEGs in Sigma Photo Professional (sigma calls it 2x) because there is very little (if any) visual chaff in the basic images. I’ve had 18×24 posters printed and there is plenty of detail along with the excellent colors. By the way, Popular Photography Magazine reported a test result of Excellent for color accuracy, in its SD-15 lab test of January 2011.
    You might want to wait for the Sigma SD1 if you regularly print larger than 18×24…

    You cannot beat the Foveon X3 sensor., February 1, 2011

    This review is from: Sigma SD15 14MP X3 FOVEON CMOS Digital SLR with 3.0 inch LCD (Electronics)

    The people who say this is not a real 14 megapixel camera don’t understand how Foveon sensors work. A picture is not just a bunch of dots (pixels), it is a combination of colors and their intensity. While a Canon camera might make JPG files that technically have more megapixels than a Sigma, the amount of color information in the Sigma picture is still better. Also if you think 2640×1760 resolution is somehow not good enough for full size prints then you’re on crack. I can’t wait for the Sigma SD1 when it comes out.
