Pricing not available
Sigma, a lensmaker determined to become a camera maker, reveals its upcoming SLR at the Photokina show. Here's how it and two new lenses look.
Foveon and Sigma, back for more
Sigma is revamping its DP1 compact camera, but the large Foveon image sensor still is at its heart.
The DP3 Merrill camera narrows its angle of view, and that's about it.
Saying it improved manufacturing, the Japanese camera and lens maker will start selling a lower-priced SLR in March. Also: perks for those who paid the high price.
The Japanese camera equipment maker expects the new Foveon sensor in its upcoming SD1 will prove more competitive. Also: New image-stabilized lenses and Sigma's financial crisis.
Are you ready to step up to a more sophisticated model or are you thinking about stepping down to something smaller than a dSLR? These are for you.
The $9,700 SLR's Foveon sensor captures three colors per pixel rather than the usual one. Sigma is betting people will pay for that difference.
Even as exchange rates make life easier for Kazuto Yamaki, CEO of the Japanese lens and camera manufacturer, the profusion of new camera models makes it vastly more complex. Also: Are the Foveon-based cameras a flop?
