Additional info; The Southern part of Norway is a heaven for landscape photography. These photos were taken on a 18-day trip in a land of fjords, glaciers, pristine forests, desolate roads and small villages. Sigma SD14, Sigma 18-200mm OS. Daniel Portier, July, 2010.
Sigma’s special site dedicated to the SD1, http://www.sigma-sd.com/SD1/, has been updated. They added a leaflet and a one sample image in PDF format. They also updated their message. Although quite some is lost due to the compression of the PDF the file gives a pretty good idea of what to expect from the SD1. The […]Read more
Along with the new lenses (see this post) Sigma yesterday also introduced the DP2x. This evolution brings this compact digital camera technically on par with the recently introduced DP1x. It now also incorporates AFE (Analog Front End) and a new AF algorithm to provide high speed auto focus. What stayed the same is the 14 […]Read more

After the surprise announcement from Sigma with the new SD1 we were even more determined to pay Photokina a visit this year. Because of our tight work schedules we only managed to free up one day to do so. But it was a very nice and fruitful day. We finally met some people in real life that we got to know through the mighty Internet. Spend time with friends we wished we could see more often like Georges and Carl but missed out on a lot of others.
And yes we got a look a at the new Sigma SD1. It is a beautiful camera. It’s design is very balanced and feels very good in hand. As it was a non-working copy I can’t say how the camera really works but the buttons seem to be in the right places. The fit and finish is very beautiful, especially the embossed info on the dials make it look very luxurious.Read more

Original article at www.Rytterfalk.com I was talking to Bengt Werner today, a former Nikon user who switched to Sigma for his landscape photography. And we tried to put our finger on why we love the way Sigma images look and what it is that makes them different. It’s always been debated and I often stayed […]Read more
