Sigma SD14 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
7 June 2008
  • Excerpt: This DSLR camera (not recommended for beginners) works on the base of Foveon X3 Sensor and will finally be available since 6th March 2007 (originally announced at Photokina in August 2006). Foveon X3 sensor (20.7mm x 13.8mm) was seen by many as the future of digital photography because (unlike almost every camera on the market which uses a color filter array), the X3 sensors measure color information for all three colors at every pixel location.

Hands On: Sigma SD14

Pop Photo
4 June 2008
  • Excerpt: It's been three years since Sigma last introduced a digital SLR. That's nearly two generations by digital camera standards. But, just days before the Photokina international trade show in September, Sigma announced the new SD14 ($1,600, estimated street, body only), proving it was still in the game.

Hands On: Sigma SD14

Pop Photo
4 June 2008
  • Excerpt: We were starting to feel like we were waiting for Godot, but we (finally!) got a hold of a full production model Sigma SD14, the DSLR using the newly upgraded Foveon X3 chip that records red, green, and blue on three separate stacked layers in its image sensor. We're running it through the standard battery of tests -- resolution, color accuracy, noise, as you read this.

Camera Test: Sigma SD14

Pop Photo
4 June 2008
  • Excerpt: If patience is a virtue, photographers shopping for a new Sigma DSLR are saints. After all, it's been three years since the last Sigma digital (the SD10), and it was more than six months between the announcement and availability of the new Sigma SD14 ($1,600, street, body only).

Sigma SD14

CNET
30 March 2008
  • Summary: Sigma and Foveon fans, who have been waiting eagerly for this camera, might be interested in the SD14, but consumers can easily find more bang for their buck from other SLRs on the market.
  • Pros: Removable IR-cut filter lets you use the SD14 for infrared photography and acts as a dust shield for the sensor during normal photography.
  • Cons: Slow performance overall; overly noisy images at ISO 800 and ISO 1600; poor control scheme; inelegant design and ergonomics.

Sigma SD14 digital SLR camera

Techworld
22 January 2008
  • Summary: The results from the Foveon chip are certainly different, but those of the much cheaper Nikon D80 are more pleasing to the eye straight out of the Sigma SD14.

Digital Photography Now
28 August 2007
  • Excerpt: This will be Sigma's first new DSLR since the SD10 was launched no less than 34 months ago. Sigma UK staff have been enthusiastically waiting for the SD10 successor for 18 months, with some broad, yet ultimately unfulfilled, hints first shared as far back as PMA in spring 2005.
