Sigma SD15 DSLR Camera

The Sigma SD15 digital SLR camera is now available in the United States for about $990. The latest model in the SD series boasts a Foveon image sensor for enhanced image quality with more pixels, and a faster processor.

Sigma says the SD15’s 14-megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor can capture all primary RGB colors at each pixel location arranged in three layers, adding that the SD15’s “TRUE II” image processing engine helps the camera process a large amount of data, while producing high-resolution, high-definition images with impressive three-dimensional detail and rich gradation.

Other features include a 3-inch LCD monitor with 460,000 pixels and greater pixel density, a new, 77-Segment AE sensor, an Analog Front End (AFE), and an extra ISO stop at 3200. The SD15’s buffer is also larger than its predecessor’s, allowing 21 raw images to be shot continuously, as opposed to six, and the camera has an improved user interface.
