At Sigma, camera design has always been guided by one principle: a camera is a precision instrument that should respond faithfully and directly to the photographer's intention. The SD1 takes this to new heights of perfection, offering even greater possibilities of sophisticated, nuanced expression, while serving the artist as a career partner.
The SD1 is the first Sigma camera to have a magnesium alloy body for rugged durability and resistance to water and dust. This represents a comprehensive approach to maximizing camera performance, just as the internal circuitry is optimized for processing high-resolution data.
The redesigned user interface is ergonomically engineered to provide intuitive control with extended operational convenience to help the photographer concentrate on the photographic task at hand.
More than any words or specifications, it is only by taking the SD1 in your hands that you can understand how this camera represents the latest evolution of Sigma's dedication to pushing digital camera design into new dimensions of practical performance.
