SD-9 is already the talk of the industry as the only digital SLR to feature
Foveon's X3 sensor. The SD-9 is able to take advantage of over 10 million photodetectors
by capturing the information from 3.3 million pixels in red, green and blue.
This advanced technology is only available from Sigma. The SLR system can take
advantage of over 30 different lenses from 8mm circular fisheye to 800 mm ultra
telephoto, plus two digital flashguns, power pack and accessories.
The SD-9 uses a lossless RAW compression format to maximise image quality,
is compatible with both PC and Apple Mac, can use Compact Flash I and II or
IBM Microdrive and can download files using USB or FireWire.
The Foveon X3 sensor has already collected three leading International Awards
for advanced digital technology from DIMA, TIPA & EISA.
Sigma has broken through yet another barrier, the all important price factor.
If the technological advantages of the SD-9 were not enough to place Sigma head
and shoulders above the traditional digital SLRs currently available, then the
ground breaking price of 1105.53 + VAT (SRP 1299.99 inc VAT),
for the camera body, will make top quality digital photography affordable to
a whole new army of photographers both professional and amateur.
The SD-9 will be available in the shops from 25th October 2002.
