The new Sigma SD15 digital SLR camera utilizes the 14-megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor which the company says can capture all primary RGB colors at each and every pixel location arranged in three layers.
The new SD15, according to Sigma, incorporates the â€œTRUE IIâ€ 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 company adds.
The camera uses the SD card and incorporates a 3-inch LCD monitor, 77-Segment AE sensor and AFE (Analog Front End). The SD15 shutter mechanism claims a life of over 100,000 actuations. Coming soon, Sigma said. No date and no price were mentioned in the announcement.
