Automatic brake lights that only come on when your bike is slowing and stopping aren’t a new idea. But the folks at Sigma have come up with cheap and clever solution so that their $10 LED bike brake light doesn’t need a pricey built-in accelerometer.
Released over the last couple of years, Sigma's three DP Merrill cameras were clumsy boxes built around an amazing image sensor matched to prime lenses at three different focal lengths. They took amazing photos, but they were also kind of frustrating to use. Now the cameras are getting a complete revamp, including a…
Zoom lenses are the quintessential frenemy of photographers everywhere. They provide great versatility, but not without trade-offs such as weight and aperture size. Sigma's new lens brings zooms where they have rarely ventured before with an unprecedented f/1.8 aperture. The future is bright.
Sigma has just announced its new 18-35mm f/1.8 lens—the world's first ever lens to offer a fixed f/1.8 aperture throughout its zoom range. This thing will stalk light like you would not believe.
Camera manufcaturers announced so many awesome cameras this fall. We honestly weren't expecting much from them at CES this year. But some big manufacturers delivered the gear anyway. Here are four dope new shooters that all surprised the megapixels out of us.
The Sigma DP3 Merrill is a boxy shooter with 50mm f/2.8 lens. It follows the 19mm DP1 Merrill and the 30mm DP2, which aside from their fixed focal lengths are identical. This is a trinity of image quality awesome, and if it were any other manufacturer, we'd join the haters in saying this is a waste.
Sigma is better known for its camera lenses than its cameras. But the company also makes a ridiculously strong imaging technology—the semi-legendary Foveon X3 image sensor. The Sigma DP2 Merrill is Sigma's latest attempt to mobilize this sensor in a camera. Can it crush?
You probably know Sigma for its inexpensive alternatives to brand-name lenses, but the company also makes some fine digital cameras. The newly rebooted DP-series compact cameras pack the same sensor technology as the company's excellent $3300 SD1 DSLR.
The Sigma SD15, notable for its Foveon sensor that captures RGB at different depths on its sensor, will finally start shipping at the end of the month.
Nobody is going to share the murky photos from the DSi's integrated camera, so why not hack a classic DS to become a controller for a dSLR?
Christ, this is getting complicated. Mirrorless cameras with interchangeable lenses that promise near-DSLR quality without DSLR bulk are verifiably exploding. After the now-established Micro Four Thirds format from Panasonic and Olympus, Samsung jumped in with its Hybrid NX camera. Yesterday, Sony revealed its own spin
I doubt Sigma's DP2s (stress "s") update will clean up Wilson's DP2 review in any real way, but the improved autofocus algorithm could help reduce the camera's complexity a tad. Thing's still going to be expensive though.
When I first fiddled with the DP2, I was like "Who would ever want this?" Then I shot some of the most amazing photos I've ever taken.
Sci-fi writers shaping US national security policy may sound like the stuff of comics, but it turns out that it's also happening in real life, as well. Be very afraid.
Sigma's new SD15 and DP2 cameras are incremental developments of the original SD14 and DP1 cameras, but without too much in the way of change. The SD15 and DP2 share the same 3-layer 14-megapixel Foveon X3 sensor as their predecessors, but have a new True (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) II image processor…
We just got a briefing on Monster's Wireless Digital Express HD System, a UWB system that transmits video wirelessly in the same room, If you want to send it to another room, it'll use already-in-wall coax to transmit high-def signal. Sigma Designs, known for its Blu-ray player chips, is on board, using its Wireless…
The guys at Pop Photo have managed to get their hands all over the much-hyped Sigma DP1. Apparently, the DP1 has a build quality comparable to the solid Canon PowerShot G9, and the mega sensor monster does away with any fuss with regards to shooting options; you'll find Manual, Auto, Aperture-priority, Program, and…
