  • Summary: A well-built DSLR camera for photographers who want to work with raw files to obtain maximum image quality.It's taken a while for Sigma's SD15 to reach the market. First displayed at Photokina 2008 and then officially announced as a successor to the SD14 on 20 February, 2010, the SD15 has only just gone on sale locally. It offers a few updates to its predecessor but features the same Foveon X3 sensor, which has a focal length crop factor of 1.7x. . .
  • Pros: You want a DSLR camera that will deliver sharp, colour-rich images and are prepared to work with raw files., You want a camera with P, A, S and M shooting modes, and no fancy additions., You want a DSLR with a built-in auto flash plus useful flash modes and exposure adjustments.

  • 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 hævder, at kameraet har 14,4 mio. pixels, men det er reelt en tredjedel. Det skyder 3,0 billeder i sekundet og har fem autofokus-punkter, men her er ingen mulighed for video og ingen live view-funktion, og det lyder ikke som specifikationerne på et nyt DSLR. Man får en fornemmelse af kvalitet, når man står med kameraet, og materialerne virker gode og solide. Designet er dog en smule forvirrende, og menuerne er ikke overskuelige.

  • Summary: Sigma hevder at kameraet har 14,4 megapiksler, men det er egentlig en tredjedel. Det tar 3,0 bilder i sekundet og har fem autofokuspunkter, men her er det ingen muligheter for video og ingen live view-funktion, og det høres ikke ut som spesifikasjonene på et nytt DSLR. Man får en følelse av kvalitet når man står med kameraet, og materialene virker gode og solide. Designen er likevel en tanke forvirrende, og menyene er ikke oversiktlige.

  • Conclusion: Sigmas SD15 ist eine Kamera für puristische Porträt-Fotografen und damit sehr speziell. Vor allem bei dieser Aufnahme-Situation kann der exotische Foveon-Bildsensor seine Stärken ausspielen. Ansonsten stören übermäßiges Bildrauschen ab einer Lichtempfindlichkeit von ISO 800, die lahme Geschwindigkeit und das karge Ausstattungsniveau. Damit liegt die Sigma in der Bestenliste ganz hinten.
  • Pros: Sehr natürliche Hauttöne, Gute Auflösung
  • Cons: Viel Bildrauschen ab ISO 800, Extrem puristisch, Recht langsam, Kein Live View
