The Sigma SD15 is a digital SLR camera introduced at the Photokina show in Germany during September of 2008. An upgrade from the Sigma SD14, the Sigma SD15 incorporates a ‘TRUE II’ image processing engine that provides high resolution power and reproduces HD images rich in gradation & 3D detail. Like its peer, the Sigma SD15 DSLR boasts a Foveon X3 direct image sensor with 14 million pixels arranged in three layers of 4.67 million pixels each, to measure Red, Green, and Blue light separately. In addition, the SD15 digital SLR boasts a 3.0” (versus 2.5”) LCD monitor, a mirror lock-up mechanism that prevents vibration when the shutter is released, and an auto focus sensor with 5 focusing points (center, left, right, up, and down) to ensure consistently fast & precise focusing. As for imaging, the Sigma SD15 digital SLR captures up to 4608x3072 JPEG images and 2640x1760 RAW images. Plus, the SD15 comes equipped with Sigma’s proprietary Photo Pro 3.0 software that converts all raw data quickly and easily.
