Sigma’s SD1 DSLR Coming in June for $9700

Sigma has announced details of the pricing of its SD1 APS-C 15x3MP DSLR, saying it is aiming at users currently shooting medium format. The camera, based on the technology of Sigma’s sensor development company Foveon, captures information about three colors for each of its 15 million pixels, rather than just one color per pixel in conventional, ‘Bayer’ designs. This gives 46 million pieces of color information. It is the company’s first move away from the 4.7x3MP sensors used in its existing DSLRs and DP-series fixed lens large sensor compacts. The SD1 features the ability to shoot at 5 frames per second, offers a 3.0″ 460,000 dot LCD screen and an 11-point AF system. It is based around the company’s own SA lens mount. Cameras will available from the end of June at a price of $9,700 in the US and £6,199.99 (inc VAT) in the UK.
