Sigma is turning camera development on its head by developing a camera specifically to take full advantage of the Global Vision lens series with the release of the Sigma sd Quattro Digital Mirrorless Body 39 Megapixel Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor + 30mm F1.4 DC HSM Art Kit, Mount for Sigma with a Sigma SA lens mount. This camera offers the utmost in resolution with a 29MP APS-C Foveon X3 Quattro CMOS sensor that uses a unique stacked design to deliver full-color information at every single pixel without interpolation. By using a 1:1:4 RGB pixel ratio with a layered design, this eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, the sd Quattro can create 19.6MP lossless compressed raw images with a spatial resolution equivalent to, and with richer colors, than that of a 39MP Bayer sensor. These vast quantities of image data are handled quickly and efficiently thanks to a Dual TRUE III image processing engine. Additionally, the APS-C size provides a 1.5x crop factor when compared to a full-frame 35mm sensor.
Designed for the artist who loves photography
Featuring the 39-megapixel-equivalent Foveon X3 Quattro direct image sensor, this camera optimally balances outstanding image quality with fundamental performance.
