The Sigma cameras really are special. Lots of people on the net say they don’t see it but there really is a 3d sort of depth to the files. This is only really apparent in RAW (for the older cameras at least) as the in camera jpgs are not first class (SD14, DP1 at least)
The camera controls are just like an old film cameras (so go down well on this web site!). No fancy digital settings here. But again, just like film cameras, the camera output has to be thought of as a negative that needs some darkroom work.
Below are few output examples. The camera is good for well saturated colour but is also first class for superb black and white. And black and white can be obtained from the software very easily - just de-saturate and slightly adjust a few other sliders. The software used here is Sigma’s own Photo Pro 5, specifically designed for these cameras.
Also, the SD10 and SD14 are excellent for IR photography. Simply remove the front hot mirror filter from in front of the mirror box and you have a high quality IR DSLR.
