Sigma SD1


The best Sigma DSLR ever

Labels: D-SLRsGear
This Article Features Photo Zoom
11-Point AF System
The phase-detection AF system features 11 user-selectable points (you also can let the camera select the point, if desired). You can choose among single-shot AF, continuous predictive AF and manual focusing.

CompactFlash Memory
Images are stored on Type 1 CompactFlash cards, including UDMA-compatible cards.
Vide3.0-Inch LCD Monitor
The SD1 doesn’t do video, or even Live View, but the big, 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot LCD monitor and simple user interface make it easy to use the menus and view images after shooting them.

Essential Accesories

ND Filter
An ND filter lets you control your shutter speed to capture motion blurs, especially useful for blurred water with colorful leaves. This HOYA PRO1 Digital ND16 gives you a four-stop light loss.

Wide-Angle Lens
Fast, wide-angle lenses like this Sigma 17-50 F2.8 EX DC OS HSM with Sigma’s optical-stabilizing technology let you shoot dramatic autumn landscapes handheld.

Camera Bag
We love versatile camera bags like the Tamrac Evolution 8. It holds a DSLR and just the right amount of lenses and accessories, and it can be carried as a backpack or shoulder sling bag.
