 Post subject: Sigma SD15 announced.
PostPosted: Sun Sep 28, 2008 7:20 pm 
I'm trying to keep tabs on the Foveon sensor and wondering if there will come a time to change my camera.

The previous SD14 was perhaps a little too slow in operations and somewhat limited - this SD15 appears to promise something a little more snappy.

Some of the pictures taken with the Foveon sensor has a lot of WOW-factor - hopefully this new model can deliver.

"September, 2008: The Sigma Corporation (COO: Kazuto Yamaki) is pleased to announce the new SIGMA SD15 digital SLR camera. This camera is the latest model in Sigma’s digital SLR camera 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 developing SD15 incorporates the “TRUE II” new image processing engine. It provides high resolution power and reproduces high definition images rich in gradation and impressive three-dimensional detail. Incorporation of the large 3.0 inch LCD monitor and improved processing speed provide ease of operation of the camera.

Development of the SD15

Since October 2002, Sigma has introduced three digital SLR cameras, the SD9, SD10 and SD14 to the market. In March 2008 Sigma also introduced a high-end compact digital camera, the DP1 which uses the same large image sensor as is featured in Sigma’s digital SLR cameras.

They have established a strong following from a wide range of photographers, both amateur and professional. Photographers expressed a desire to incorporate the image processing engine “TRUE”, which is used in the DP1, into a digital SLR camera.

In order to meet this demand, the SD15, with high resolution direct image sensor, has been designed around the new “TRUE II” image processing engine. This combination delivers superior image quality as well as improved processing speed, operation and performance. "

Whoah..looks like I missed Gordon's post about the same thing. I will PM myself with a warning about double-posting and suing search before I post.

I will also lock this thread.
