If you´re a landscape photographer this should make you droll. The new Sigma SD1 features an all new 46 megapixel 24-16mm APS-C sensor with the effective megapixel count of 15.3.
Using the Sigma DP1 and DP2 I learned how much detail it is possible to draw out from 4 megapixels. With this being close to 4 times the amount and without the ever famous anti-aliasing filter users are in for a real detail treat.

Sigma writes : “The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the new SIGMA SD1 Digital SLR Camera, incorporating a 46 megapixel (4,800×3,200×3 layers) 24×16mm APS-C X3 direct image sensor.

The SIGMA SD1 is Sigma’s flagship digital SLR model, adopting a lightweight yet solid magnesium alloy for its body and O-ring sealing connections to make a weather-resistant design throughout for use in harsh conditions.

The SIGMA SD1 incorporates a 24×16mm APS-C X3 direct image sensor and dual “TRUE (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) II ”image processing engines. The combination of the 46 megapixel (4,800×3,200×3 layers) sensor and dual TRUE II processing engines ensure the high resolution images are processed quickly with high definition and a smooth and subtle graduation of color.

The SD1 is SIGMA’s latest digital SLR camera which meets high requirements of professional and enthusiast photographers for all types of photography.”
