News Editor and sometime Gallery Photographer extraordinare Mike Tomkins here: When I heard that Sigma was announcing the SD10 digital SLR, and that Dave had one on the way for testing, I jumped at the opportunity to visit Dave's home just outside Atlanta and try the camera out.
Sigma's SD9 was amongst the most talked-about cameras of the last year, thanks to its use of Foveon's X3 image sensor technology - and the SD10 promised to improve on some of the areas in which the original camera didn't excel (namely high ISO and long-exposure photography). Unfortunately, weather prevented me from getting the chance to try out the SD10 for some night photography thus far (I'm hoping to correct this soon) - but I did have the chance to try the camera out on a variety of subjects around Atlanta.
We've now updated our review of the SD10 with some of my better gallery photos (apologies if the subjects I chose aren't the most interesting, but I was pressed for time and am not very familiar with the Atlanta area...) All in all, I felt the SD10 performed rather nicely, with the exception of a somewhat erratic auto white balance and an occasionally quirky autofocus - the software in particular is very nicely refined!
Check out my gallery photos, and watch for me to add a review of the Sigma Photo Pro software and (hopefully) some night photos soon...
