Nikon D3x Sample Images versus Sigma SD1 Sample Images
May 28, 2011

Hello everyone,

Just wondering what everyone thinks of the Nikon D3x sample images compared to the Sigma SD1 sample images?

http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d3x/sample.htm

I found the Nikon D3x sample images much more inspiring.

If Sigma wants to compete with medium format, like Nikon claims to with its D3x, then it needs to cough up at least $6,899 to pay a famous landscape photographer to create a stunning image to justify its high price.

Let me give you an example. Apple actually paid a professional photographer to produce those amazing sample iPhoto images shown on its demonstration computers. The images are licensed for a period of time.

I appreciate the time that all the beta testers put into helping Sigma. However, I believe that those sample images on the Sigma SD1 are uninspiring, compared to the studio fashion shoot on the Web site.
