Sigma SD14 Review

digitalslrphoto.com
8 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Digital SLR Photography editor, Dan Lezano, test the Sigma SD14 14-megapixel DSLR camera HANDLING & EASE OF USE: The SD14 looks and feels much better than its predecessors, with better styling, nicer balance and more robust build quality. As with all models designed for serious use, the Sigma has a good weight and the exterior feels very robust.

  • Conclusion: The Foveon X3 sensor adds a lot to image quality, but the handling and envelope of operation is too narrow compared to its rivals

  • Summary: You could fill a page with the SD14's flaws. You could criticise its unsophisticated handling, the clumsy colour control and the noise at higher ISOs settings. But in the right conditions this camera produces image quality that you simply can't get from a conventional sensor. If all the SD14 manages to do is to bring Foveon technology a step closer to mainstream use, then it should be applauded for that.

Sigma SD14 reviewed

  • Summary: Designed for the experienced photographer, the SD14 is, thankfully, free of preset scene modes but does have designated settings for things like Mirror-up, 2sec self timer with auto mirror up and a 10sec self timer, which are all useful. Sigma are well known for their lenses but are a very small camera manufacturer and to apply the advances in the SD14 over their previous models without going to a major manufacturer for the hardware speaks volumes for their ingenuity.
  • Pros: Simple operation, Uncluttered menu, Superb image quality, JPEG option now included, Useful on-board flash, Sensible battery system, Improved software is backwards compatible
  • Cons: Buffer fills up after six shots, Write speeds a little slow (restricting frame-rate), No RAW plus JPEG option, Start-up time slower than previously, Focus system fairly basic, JPEG images noisy at ISO100

Sigma SD14

PhotoReview
1 March 2007
  • Summary: An interesting camera for serious photographers but with some functionality limitations and a relatively high price tag.It's been ages since we reviewed a Sigma DSLR camera, the last model being the not-so-impressive SD10. Fortunately, its replacement, the SD14 is a somewhat different beast, although it still uses a Foveon image sensor. For starters, it's more compact and 85 grams lighter than the SD10.
