Sigma Interview

Dennis Hissink : 2006-10-09 02:22:22
Sigma interview : It has been a while since we last spoke with Kazuto Yamaki, Chief Operating Officer, from Sigma Japan. I think it was since last PMA 2006 where we talked about the new FourThirds system lenses and Sigma's future in the digital SLR market. At this Photokina Sigma unveiled some very interesting products, and this time those are not only lenses. We took some time to set up a Q&A session at the booth from Sigma, and asked Kazuto Yamaki about Sigma's new digital SLR camera; the Sigma SD14 and their interesting DP1 high-end digital compact camera. Both cameras are of high interested among our readers. Unfortunately we have to wait for some time to get our hands on a full production model of the DP1 camera.


Sigma DP1 hands-on

Sigma DP1 hands-on : During our meeting with Kazuto Yamaki, Chief Operating Officer, from Sigma Japan, I had the opportunity to touch and try the new Sigma DP digital compact camera. Although the status of the Sigma DP1 is pre-pre-pre-production, in the words of Kazuto Yamaki, we can already share our thoughts with you based on this model. The Sigma DP1 is compact and is basically similar to ordinary compact camera models. However the big difference between an ordinary compact camera and the Sigma DP1 is its image sensor. The Sigma DP1 incorporates the same Foveon X3 image sensor like the Sigma SD14 digital SLR camera. And this is kind of unique cause every other digital compact camera incorporates smaller image sensors, often smaller then before.


Sigma SD14

Sigma SD14 digital SLR : The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new Sigma SD14 Digital SLR camera. The new Sigma SD14, powered by the 14 Megapixels Foveon X3 direct-image-sensor, can reproduce high definition images rich in gradation and impressive three-dimensional detail. The Sigma SD14 Digital SLR camera features four JPEG recording modes, large and bright pentaprism viewfinder with 98% coverage, a built-in flash with a Guide Number of 11, 5-point AF system, a large 2.5-inch 150,000 pixel resolution LCD monitor as well as high resolution and user friendly design. The durable shutter mechanism has over 100,000 cycle life and is ideal for digital photography.


Sigma DP1

Ilse Jurriën : 2006-09-26 08:00:05
Sigma DP1 : The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new, groundbreaking Sigma DP1 compact digital camera featuring a 14 Megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor (2652×1768×3 layers) as used in the Sigma SD14 digital SLR camera. Using three silicon embedded layers of photo sensors stacked to take advantage of silicon’s ability to absorb red, green and blue light at different respective depths. A 16.6mm F4 lens, with a wide angle field of view equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm film camera, has been developed to maximize the image quality in conjunction with the full color capture image sensor. The Sigma DP1 advanced 14 Megapixel digital compact camera features Sigma’s new, unique “True” image processing engine.


Sigma 18-200mm OS lens

Ilse Jurriën : 2006-09-26 08:00:04
Sigma 18-200mm OS lens : The Sigma Corporation is please to announce the new 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS lens. This high zoom ratio lens is exclusively designed for digital SLR cameras and is capable of covering a wide range of focal lengths from wide angle to telephoto. It is equipped with Sigma’s own unique technology OS (Optical Stabilizer) function. This function uses two sensors inside the lens to detect vertical and horizontal movement of the camera and works by moving an optical image stabilizing lens group, to effectively compensate for camera shake. It automatically detects movement of the camera and compensates for camera shake when shooting moving subject such as motor sports.


Sigma APO 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG HSM lens

Ilse Jurriën : 2006-09-26 08:00:03
Sigma APO 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG HSM lens : Sigma launched a new Four-Thirds system compatible, large aperture ultra-telephoto zoom lens; Sigma APO 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG HSM. This Sigma lens covers the equivalent field of view to 600mm to 1600mm when used on Four-Thirds cameras. By continuously varying the angle of view, the lens takes a lot of the footwork out of picture composition. The very latest lens coating technology and lens design reduce flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras. Two ELD glass elements in the front lens group reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and also ensure high optimum image quality. The overall length of the lens does not change during focusing and zooming, ensuring convenient handling.


Sigma APO 135-400mm F4.5-5.6 lens

Ilse Jurriën : 2006-09-26 08:00:02
Sigma APO 135-400mm F4.5-5.6 lens : Sigma launched today a new Four-Thirds system compatible, compact telephoto zoom lens; Sigma APO 135-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG. This telephoto zoom lens gives the equivalent field of view to our popular 800mm when used on Four-Thirds cameras. The very latest lens coating technology and lens design reduce flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras. This lens uses one aspherical lens and three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements for excellent correction of various aberrations. The rear focusing system ensures fast focusing speed as well as preventing the front of the lens rotating, making it particularly suitable for use with circular polarizing filters.


Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro lens

Ilse Jurriën : 2006-09-26 08:00:01
Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro lens : Sigma launched a new Four-Thirds system compatible, large aperture wide-angle lens; Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro. This F1.8 wide-angle lens has a minimum focusing distance of 18cm (7.1”) and a maximum magnification of 1:2.7. Two aspherical lenses ensure the utmost correction of distortion and aberrations. The floating focus system provides high optical performance from 18cm to infinity. The Dual Focus (DF) system makes the lens easy to hold and eliminates focus ring rotation during auto-focusing, making the lens particularly suitable for accepting the petal-type lens hood. The introduction of this new lens increases Sigma's lens line-up for Four Thirds mount to a total of eleven models. With Four Thirds cameras, the focal length will be equivalent to 48mm.
