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.
The Foveon X3 direct image sensor featured in the Sigma SD14 digital SLR can capture all primary RGB colors at each and every pixel, insuring the capture of full and complete color.
The Sigma SD14 incorporates both RAW and JPEG image recording formats enabling photographers to capture the highest possible picture definition and small file sizes.
The Sigma SD14 camera's built-in flash offers an angle of coverage of 17 mm (equivalent to 28 mm with 35 mm full size) lens with a guide number of 11. Built-in flash can be synchronized to a shutter speed up to 1/180 sec. The built-in flash enables automatic S-TTL shooting, which allows simple, easy control of advanced flash photography techniques.
The new auto focus sensor features 5 focusing points (center, left, right, up and down) ensuring consistently fast and precise focusing.
Most digital SLR cameras are typically vulnerable to dust entering the body especially when the lens is removed for changing. The dust protector of the SIGMA SD14 prevents dust from entering and adhering to the image sensor.
The SD14 is equipped with three types of metering mode: 8-segment Evaluative Metering, Center Area Metering and Center Weighted Average Metering. This enables the photographer to select the metering mode depending on subject and situation. Exposure compensation function allows the photographer to override the exposure value set by the camera's exposure meter. Auto Bracketing function allows the exposure to be adjusted by 1/3 EV increments up to +/-3 EV from the exposure automatically set by the camera.
The SD14 camera features a large new 2.5 inch 150,000 pixel resolution LCD monitor. The LCD monitor displays 100% of the image allowing the photographer to easily and accurately confirm the image composition.
The included Lithium-ion Battery BP-21 can shoot up to 500 images on one full charge. It takes about 120 minutes to fully charge with the included battery charger BC-21.
