What's Special About the Sigma SD9?

Challenge #8 in the Insights series. Hosted by SigmaChrome.
Challenge has finished
The Sigma SD9 was the first digital SLR camera to use the unique Foveon sensor. It was slow - and some said - clunky, but it did produce astounding film-like colour photographs that are often compared with the venerable Kodachrome slide films. The challenge is to show us your best examples of what made the images produced by this camera so special. Subject Matter: Landscapes, People, Wildlife, Cityscapes, Seascapes, anything you feel captures the heart and soul of this unique camera and its sensor. Please read the additional rules. ::Most digital cameras use a Bayer sensor, which captures red, green and blue light (RGB) using a Colour Filter Array -- one colour at each photosite. The Foveon sensor captures RGB at each and every photosite. This is a very different way of capturing an image that produces pictures with great colour depth and sharpness.
