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.
