    Sigma SD1 (Merrill) review

    By 29 February 2012

    Upon launch in 2011 the Sigma SD1 was an oddity: its 46-megapixel sensor mainstay demanded, or so the company thought, a £5000 price tag. Ouch. Fast-forward to the beginning of 2012 and what is essentially the very same camera, albeit rebranded as the...

    Sigma SD14 DSLR camera review

    By 29 August 2007

    The SD14 updates Sigma’s SD10 D-SLR and like its forbear, the SD14 eschews “normal” CCD or CMOS sensor technology using Foveon’s X3 sensor. This uses pixel encapsulated in layers in the silicon that allows each layer of pixels to capture only...
