Photography News: Sigma Announces Two Mirrorless Cameras Featuring Their Proprietary Foveon X3 Quattro Sensors and SA-Mount Lens Compatibility, as Well as a Wireless TTL-Enabled External Flash

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 23, 2016) -  B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Sigma sd Quattro and sd Quattro H mirrorless digital cameras. They are set apart by sensor size -- the sd Quattro features a 39MP-equivalent APS-C sensor, while the sd Quattro H houses a 51MP-equivalent APS-H sensor. Aside from sensor size, both cameras utilize the unique vertically-stacked Foveon X3 Quattro sensor design that avails immense color detail and clarity, as well as a high degree of image sharpness. A 1:1:4 ratio is applied to this vertical design, which splits the top blue layer into quadrants in order to receive a 30% increase in resolution and detail. Dual TRUE III image processors are also used in both models, to afford a sensitivity range from ISO 100-6400, along with a continuous shooting rate of 3.6 fps for the sd Quattro or 3.8 fps for the sd Quattro H. A 9-point hybrid autofocus system is also available, which can be used in either single or continuous mode to suit working with a variety of subject types.
