Welcome to X3 magazine, here to show you the wonderful world as captured by the Sigma X3 Full Color Image sensor.

As long time fans of the output of the Sigma cameras using the foveon imager (now Sigma X3 Full Color Image sensor) we missed a place on the web which really showed of the beauty you can create with it. We have only just begun with this site but hope to fill it up soon with great series and articles. If you have seen a great series somewhere on the web, please do tip us on it so we can consider it for publishing it. Future plans? A lot and big one but more on that later 🙂

    X3 is a great idea. Too often I feel like a loan wolf baying at the moon in preaching the virtues of the Foveon sensor. Your photos show what this sensor can do.

    Hi, thanks for a great site – as a long time Sigma user it’s great to see what you’re doing and showcasing what foveon is all about.

    Not sure if this is the best place, so feel free to delete this comment, but I couldn’t find any other way to contact you – the link to your rss feed doesn’t seem to work. It’s just a simple case some additional characters in the link address that shouldn’t be there, so I was able to work out what it should be – but I thought I’d just let you know.

    Thanks again for a great site – keep up the good work,

    Martin

    Bob & Olga,
    Thanks for putting this together to showcase what the Foveon thing is all about! I think you are on to something great, a central place to showcase all the great stuff being done with X3.

    Good Day Bob
    My name is William C. Waterbury Jr.(Bill) I am and have been a commercial photographer for the past 40 years,(god has it really been that long), in Chicago IL. For my personal and sometimes professional use, I have and still use a Sigma SD9, SD10, and SD14, Last summer my wife and I went on a cross country motorcycle trip along the legendary Route 66, from Navy Pier on Lake Michigan in Chicago all the way to Santa Monica Pier in California. Along the way we spent the day at Lowell Davis’ Red Oak II Missoura a rebuilt town from Mr. Davis memory. Shot entirely on a Sigma SD14. Wondered if you might be interested in the essay for your publication?
    Thanks for your time and trouble

    Hello Bob, Olga

    Congratulations on the extension of family!

    A Question; is it possible to add a RSS/Feed for this site?

    Best regards

    • Bob van Ooik (author)

      Hi Ronald, thanks!!!
      The feed is there, just didn’t feature it prominently. It’s a good idea to put it there. The feed should be available at x3magazine.com/feed

    Dear Bob and Olga, every time I visit your site, I’m exposed (scuse the pun) to refreshing examples of how site design should be a continuing evolution of presentation. Every time I think, “wow”, and then on the next visit, it’s even better. Beautiful!

    Oh. and hello from down under, where we are in the middle of our annual winter months.

    • Bob van Ooik (author)

      Thank you very much Jim!
