Just one day before the Japanese camera & photo imaging show CP+ 2011, Sigma corporation announced an impressive list of four new and interesting lenses. Most
Photographer; Valerie Flour.
Location; Bordeaux, France.
Camera; Sigma DP1.
Additional info; all taken the 14th of November, very bad weather for a photograph walk in Bordeaux City (France): cloudy, fog and rain all the day. Anyway DP1 is small and light so I took my umbrella AND my camera together…
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.
