  • Conclusion: The Sigma SD15 has three features, which are unique and which some may consider makes it better than most other (non-Sigma) DSLRs. On the other hand, it lacks a number of features found in most other current DSLRs: So do the former make up for the latter?

  • Conclusion: The SD15 is a tricky camera to review - its images don’t look like any we’re used to seeing from a digital camera and require a fair amount of Photoshop work to pull the best out of them. However, put in the effort and you may be pleasantly surprised.
  • Pros: Chunky robust build, unique adoption of Foveon X3 sensor sets the SD15 apart from the competition, better than previous generations
  • Cons: Pricey, very noisy images at higher ISOs, no Live View, no video or HDMI output
