A good update if you use a SD-10 or SD-14.

  • Summary: I bought the SD 15 as an upgrade to the SD 14. As an upgrade it is a good upgrade, kind of a Sd14 mark II. The controls are similar so there is not any great learning curve. The addition of the QS menu from the DP series is a great addition and makes the camera easier to use. The SD 15 now has more advanced flash settings that the SD 14 lacked. The image quality is excellent and detailed using RAW. The SD 14 had a good JPEG engine, the SD15 does not.

  • Excerpt: Browsing the net I stumbled across a small quantity of new Sigma SD15's on sale for a good deal less than £350! So my frustrating SD14 was put up for sale and provided me with almost the purchase price of a new SD15. My hopes that the SD15 would be a better camera seem to be confirmed. I'd become hooked to the SD range ever since using an SD9, and finding that the image quality is unsurpassed by any other digital camera I had used.

Love it or Hate it...

  • Excerpt: The Foveon sensor is small but powerful. DONT BE FOOLED! Its image output size is 4.6mp but it has 14mp of RAW image data to work with. Does that make your image better? Yes if you have a sharp lens and plenty of light. This is not a camera for someone who wants to point and shoot with a DSLR and get better image quality. You have to know what you are doing to make this work. It also has a 1.7x Crop APS-C sensor so its almost 4/3rds range in crop factor.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: 5 AF points, Noisy At High ISO, Not weather sealed, Poor Image Stabilization, Poor In Low Light, Short Battery Life

  • Excerpt: Excellent camera with really good features and outstanding image quality at 50-800 iso. Higher iso is rougher primarily in very low light. But still very usable there. The really nice stuff are the user interfaces, simple menu structure and fast access to important settings through hardware solutions rather than layers of menus. On the image making side, the AF is very accurate and continuous focus outstanding on objects moving quickly towards the camera.

Demanding, but rewarding

elgeeko, WEX

  • Summary: This is not a camera that you can just point and shoot with. I currently own a Canon 5D2 and 1D3 which I tend to use for paid work. However, when it comes to taking photographs as opposed to just shooting images, this camera is the real deal. The detail and sharpness are a revelation. Hardly any USM is required to make things pop. It is unforgiving in its nature; if you fail to nail the exposure or WB, then it will punish you with a poor image.
  • Pros: Great Image Quality, Negligible VF blackout, Technically Demanding
  • Cons: Ergonomics, Poor In Low Light

puristische Kamera

M. Dreifuß, Amazon
13 May 2013
  • Summary: Diese Kamera ist definitv nicht für Anfänger/Einsteiger geeignet, eher als 2.Kamera für den erfahrenen Anwender. Die Kamera ist schon speziell, bietet zwar alle wichtigen Funktionen aber eben NUR diese. Die Grundschärfe ist bedingt durch den speziellen Sensor sehr hoch, d.h. mit einigermaßen guten Objektiven erhält man sehr detailreiche Fotos und dies trotz der kleinen Auflösung. Auch die Farben kommen sehr natürlich und der Tonwertumfang ist sehr gut.

The affordable infrared / foveon DSLR

brainsig, eBay.de
7 January 2013
  • Summary: On short: DSLR with foveon, at an affordable price, available new today. Positive: This camera is like an ISO 50 film (or ISO 100). Amazing in quality and detail, but it needs light! The image quality (sharpness and life-like appearence) is impressive when taken in good light; this means a good flash inside the house. I didn't yet have the chance to test it in the summer outside, but I expect the best.

colores de excelente calidad SIN DUDARLO

  • Summary: Pues eso colores de excelente calidad sin dudarlo en una cámara muy lenta también sin dudarlo. la tomas de retratos, paisajes, urbanas y todo lo que sea fotografia no de acción, ofrece unos colores sencillamente soberbios que cuesta trabajo creer en una cámara que no es cara, puedes obtener en tiendas fiables ebay por 500€.
