  • 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? Unfortunately, for 95% of potential users, I don’t think so. While the Foveon sensor is said by some to give better color rendition, sometimes described as a “almost 3-D effect”, I really don’t see it.

  • Conclusion: You can open and convert its files with Adobe Camera Raw, but the Sigma software is better-tuned to the camera's own colour modes, and gives rather better performance at high ISOs.

  • 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. Although we did not get as many colour cast/white balance issues shooting with the SD15 as previous iterations - and in that respect it’s an improvement - noise is still a bugbear, intruding into shadow detail even when...
  • 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

  • Excerpt: Sigma’s SD15 is only the company’s fourth digital SLR since 2002 when it introduced the SD9 and was first announced almost two years ago at Photokina 2008. It was since delayed and has only recently made it onto retailers’ shelves. At just under £800 body only, the SD15 is aimed at keen amateurs who are looking to get a bit more serious about their photography.

Sigma SD15 review

Digital Arts
26 September 2010
  • Excerpt: With its bulky body trumpeting a semi-professional status, Sigma’s new digital SLR - the Sigma SD15 - offers 14.06 effective megapixels. But, because its unique sensor is triple layered, with one silicon-embedded layer of photodetectors each for absorbing red, green and blue, the pixel count for any JPEG shot is actually around 4.6 megapixels.
  • Pros: Compatible with over 40 lenses; unique Foveon X3 CMOS sensor; chunky build and rugged feel.
  • Cons: No Live View; very noisy at higher ISOs.
