The best 4.5 megapixel camera on earth!

Brendan Getchel, Amazon
29 February 2008
  • Summary: I've owned the SD9 and now the SD14. The only two lenses I own for the SD are the Sigma 150/EX Macro and the 10-20/EX zoom. I shoot predominately Canon (1Ds/2, 1D/2, 30D and assorted lenses) but have a soft spot for the Foveon X3 technology, which produces a "look" that is difficult to replicate using a non-X3 "CFA" sensor (the type used in all other dSLRs). First, don't be caught up in the various hyperbolic statements by Foveon/Sigma marketing and X3 zealots.

It's no longer worth the investment!

  • Summary: Compared to the newer cameras of today the sd14 is on it's last leg. It is slow. But it does have that great foveon image quality. It's too bad that sigma decided to stick it to those of us who spent so much time with their cameras. The sd1 is ridiculous. And yes I changed my review because after waiting patiently and saving money for the SD1, I was not able to buy it, because Sigma thought that is was making fine jewelry instead of cameras. I loved the SD14.

look past the marketing hype

  • Summary: <<Edit: as of feb. 18, the sd-14, which originally sold for a whopping $1700, is now $600 through cameta. at that price it might be worth it for dedicated macro, portrait and landscape use in RAW. sports shooters will need something with faster AF and better high ISO performance, and PJs will need something with better JPEG handling. entry-level newbs should look elsewhere also. that leaves foveon junkies (you know who you are, and, boy, are you opinionated!!

ENFERMA A MIS HIJOS Y MIS PAISAJES

  • Summary: Hola a todos, Soy protésico dental de profesión y buscaba en el Foveon un sensor de autenticos colores reales. Seducido por la poetica de la publicidad de Sigma, y animado por vuestros positivos comentarios, adquirí una agradable SD14 con la esperanza de mejorar mis registros digitales de dientes y todo eso. Todavia no la he probado profesionalemente porque no me he atrevido a comprar los específicos objetivo y flash macro que necesito, debido a mis fracasos con ella.

Sigma SD14 - das andere Gesicht

  • Summary: Ich habe mir diese Kamera gekauft, weil ich schon immer wissen wollte, was eigentlich an dem Konzept dieses Fovoen-Sensors so spannendes zu finden ist: Vorwort: Kameras verschiedener Hersteller miteinander zu vergleichen, ist zwar prinzipiell möglich, gestaltet sich aber praktisch recht schwierig, da jede Kamera ihre Vor - und Nachteile hat und außerdem sich an die unterschiedlichsten Käuferschichten (Zielgruppen) wendet.

Una pasada en RAW

  • Summary: Si estás dispuesto a sacrificar velocidad de enfoque y de proceso en general, si no te importa olvidarte de los JPGs (Fácil con el software de Sigma), si renuncias a fotografiar a más de 400 ISO, si tampoco te importa tener que llevar una segunda batería SIEMPRE o usar la pantalla LCD como mera (y falsa) referencia de lo que acabas de fotografiar; si todo esto no te importa a cambio de una nitidez, colores, rango dinámico y calidad general fuera de serie...
