Sigma cameras are engineered to portray the world exactly like it is imaged through the human eye allowing the emotions to register colors in all their passion.
Sigma manufactures their own innovative Foveon image sensor providing the latest technology. This is a direct sensor that replicates colors as
authentically as film while it registers all the color details in its triple-layer expertise, a feature other DSLRs and compact digitals do not have.
These identical sensors are employed in both DSLR and digital compact cameras. Sigmas digital compact cameras provide an edge over other compacts where their sensor sizes are 7 to 12x sizes smaller than the Foveon image sensor and are not able replicate color in the way as the Foveon sensor does allowing Sigma cameras to deliver an image with the richest, accurate colors.
