Pros: Excellent image quality, yield and color detail fabulous, from the film. With optical quality, good light and low iso produces incredible results. RNLA yield bn is very filmic and clean (100 iso like a PAN-F) and the rise of ISO noise becomes a beautiful grain dry. rnCorpo machine very robust, ergonomic handgrip and arrangement of the many buttons, access modes to the functions definitely peculiar but very well structured and very quick to use. Excellent battery grip. rnMirino bright pentaprism, with coverage of 98% (96% indicated in the data is wrong) .rnSollevamento mirror, to reduce vibration.

Cons: Color noise beyond 400 ISO (though in bn becomes a beautiful grain dry, usable even up to 6400). rnVelocità operational not excellent. rnMancanza the live-view. rnMolti buttons, but no configurable. rnMancanza of any feature that is not essential (when compared to any other reflex of a good standard and what you want the producer, appears almost spartan). rnDifficilmente the Foveon may be the only camera kit available.

Opinion: Sigma cameras are difficult to recensire.rnrnLasciamo for after the quality of the images produced by the Foveon sensor, and we begin by camera bodies: very strong, extremely ergonomic handgrip and arrangement of the many buttons, access modes to the functions peculiar but surely really well structured and very quick to use. But for the rest, when compared to any other reflex good level and to any desired manufacturer, they appear quite basic, almost spartani.rnrnSe and how this represents a limit, or, on the contrary, may even be considered a value, you can not say, because it is a purely personal assessment, which depends on your needs, preferences and tastes. It is certain, however, that the Sigma cameras have objective operational limits that does not make them suitable for all usi.rnrnAndiamo now to see what's on the other side of the scale: the sensor Foveon.rnLa quality and color rendering of images prodottand by this sensor to three layers is something unique, which can not be obtained with no sensor mosaic, either full-frame. Can only sensibly be compared to a scan by a film high definition and low sensitivity. Being a three layer, the Foveon contains the color information in whole and, therefore, unlike the mosaic requires neither of the reconstruction process (demosaicing) or the anti-aliasing filter, and is therefore devoid of any kind of artifacts, or luminance or color. The big difference that this entails can not be described in words and it is also difficult to appreciate in video; but just look at the large prints because our visual memory, now accustomed to the mosaic, remains literally impressed and incredula.rnrnViene to ask: why the Sigma places a jewel-like sensor in camera bodies that are not only state-of- 'art, but even almost Spartans? Well, obviously bisognerebbe ask the Sigma, but these limits are due in part to its sensor, that is, are the reverse of medaglia.rnrnLe Sigma cameras are not for everyone. Can be appreciated only by those who know her intimately photography, from those seeking the tools according to their characteristics, choosing from time to time if and when you can use them to the fullest. In short, are tools for photographers, not for "photographing" still looking for the "holy grail" of the ideal camera, which produces only frustrazione.rnrnIn conclusion, the Foveon is able to provide - a photographer who is able to handle it - unique results, typical of the film and unreachable with mosaic, provided conditions permit: good light, low ISO, optical height and no particular need for haste or operating speed. But in all other cases, you have to have other equipment they will use.

Pros: Semi pro body, tending to pro. Rubusta and heavy. Good grip without battry grip. Excellent performance in low contrast situations, poor high ISO (up to 400, maybe 800). Remarkable detail with appropriate optics. The file that returns are top notch thanks to the sensor under conditions of full light is PRO level cameras.

Cons: Closed system by the optics, but Sigma is the latest. Prices. Yield high ISO impractical. White balance improved. Slow the recording file very heavy gust limited. Alignment system improved but overall pretty good.

Opinion: Use Sigma (I also SD 14 and 10) is to go back years in the digital monitor horrendous, slow the burst, operations manuals, no program of photo style. Well, not cheap!! If you add to this a machine rivida means that the need to use those who know something about photography. From 50 to 400 ISO in conditions of full light is great for three-dimensional picture, excellent for macro because the Foveon sensor returns details micro beautiful, warm colors but natural, made with the press of analog. Improved overall operating speed in SD 15 compared to younger sisters; overall performance almost identical to the SD 14 it is 15. Used for landscapes, portraits and even weddings (in bright) we obtain large-format prints. Recommended for a retro approach to photography thought and not "hit and run". Used with fixed 50 mm, 100 mm macro with the 70-200 F 2.8 and 100-300 F4, all Sigma course is a combination of high level, with the limitations mentioned above. Try it .... system by Devuppare. Thank you all, I hope to be helpful. Mauro.
