Amazing

Lowell Gilbert, Amazon
30 August 2010
  • Summary: Use to run the digital imaging dept for a major ad agency, now retired. I was looking for a digital camera to replace my old Fuji digital outfit and I was always like the Sigma brand of lenses ( We had a couple of them at work.) so I looked into the Sigma and was amazed at the quality of the samples I downloaded. I then purchase a SD 14 outfit.

Top Of The Line Camera!

DigitalDevo "Photographer", Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: The Sigma SD14 is hands down one of the best dSLRs on the market! But, it is not for the beginner or novice shooter! It has no auto modes or fancy shooting modes, just the bare basics a Professional needs! Resolution is on par with a Canon 5D full frame sensor camera. Color reproduction is unmatched thanks to the FoveonX3 sensor technology capturing all RGB colors instead of interpolating(guessing) at 2 of the three colors per photosite.

Sigma SD14

Pen Name, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: Sigma SD14's were expensive when they first came out, but I just couldn't resist when price dropped below $300, too bad price has gone back up again lately. For a digital camera of this calibre, and like most other high end digital cameras, shooting RAW and processing it properly will give you the best results, however its JPG files are really quite excellent as well as long as you know how to adjust WB, exposure, and other parameters correctly to your liking according...

Great DSLR

21 August 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to use as backup but I was impressed enough that I puchased a second to use as my main and a backup, The camera does have some short comings, it is slower than I would like and you do have to allow for that but the picture quality is second to none.

Title

  • Summary: First-class product (Sigma sd14 camera) at a give-away price. At age 72, one of the best buys to ever present itself to me.

  • Summary: this is a complicated camera to operate and it takes an effort to maximize its abilities. but, when you "tame the beast" the results provide an amazing payback for your efforts.

WOW, Impressive barely fits the bill

M. M. Nosbisch "PhotoMAn", Amazon
2 March 2009
  • Summary: Impressive does not begin to contend for the image quality and color that this camera can produce. I know people who have digital slr ranging from nikon d40 and canon xt to the nikon d3 series and canon 1d series and have loved the quality some of these cameras can create. But when it comes to landscape and studio photography (mainly what I do) this can contend with anything from canon or nikon.

Sigma SD-14 Review

William Wilgus, Amazon
25 January 2009
  • Summary: Matched with a good quality lens, this camera can give you extremely sharp photos. However, as is true with all (d)SLRs, it isn't for casual photographers---just serious amateurs and pros.

Sigma SD14 Digital SLR Camera

MichaelJ.James III, Rate it all!
26 October 2008
  • Summary: I own a Canon 5D and Nikon D3 and my Sigma SD14's image quality is on par with both of these cameras. However,... ... it does have a few shortfalls. Such as: 1. In low light conditions,... shadows will have "blotchy" noise and speckles of magenta compared to the same shot taken with a 5D/D3 at the same ISO settings. This can even happen in daylight conditions where there is a very wide dynamic range.

Sigma SD14 Digital SLR Camera

J.Kunkel, Rate it all!
11 August 2008
  • Summary: I sold my Canon 40D and lenses (Including L glass) to fund my purchase of the Sigma SD14. I miss the low light ability and the all around speed of the 40D. I miss the superior battery life and the ability to shoot full frame (If I bought another camera body) with the same lenses that I invested in for the Canon. I miss the stable operation (No lock-ups) of the 40D.
