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 photo of the dog has been taken by Rowland Kirishima. The photographer, and two other people, can be clearly seen in the eye of the dog. It was shot using the 85mm f1.4 at F6.3, shutterspeed of 1/125s, iso100 and automatic white balance.
The site also updated their message or what I would call an intro movie. It features a lot of great studio shots that are both very vibrant and alive. The typical 3D feeling from this sensor is (at least in my opinion) definitely there.
They made the presentation in Flash so I had no luck seeing those on the iPad. So I included a few screenshots from this movie in this post as a gallery for those that are in the same boat. Please Sigma, think about giving us an alternative.
And what are my thoughts after seeing all this, you ask? I want one, now!
