Full (preliminary) review posted for Sigma SD9!|
(Monday, November 11, 2002 - 14:28 EST)
Few cameras have stirred up as much interest in the photo community this year as Sigma's new SD9 digital SLR.
This is with good reason, since the Sigma SD9 uses the new "X3" full-color pixel sensor technology from Foveon, to deliver nearly the same resolution from its 3.43 megapixel sensor as other cameras manage from conventional 6 megapixel CCDs. I've had a production model of the SD9 for almost a week now, and have put together a pretty comprehensive review of its functionality and performance specs.
An unrelenting series of gray days here in the Atlanta area put me far behind on my test shooting with the SD9, with the result that I still have only a couple of basic test images (resolution target and Davebox) posted for it. The weather finally broke over the weekend though, so I should have a full set of test images up in the next few days. Not to mention a nice "surprise" for everyone, perhaps a little before that...
