Just posted: JPEG and Raw samples from the Sigma SD1. We've been using a production Sigma SD1 for a little while now, and although we have only just started our studio testing, we want to share some of our early 'real world' samples with you. In this gallery you will find images of a broad variety of subjects, shot at different ISO settings, in both Raw and JPEG mode (albeit using, for now, a very limited range of lenses). We have converted the Raw files using Sigma's Photo Pro 5.0 software 'to taste', and performed some minor tweaking of the resultant TIFF files in Adobe Camera Raw.

This gallery contains both JPEG and Raw files, in many cases shot simultaneously. When converting the SD1's Raw files, we have tried simply to get the most out of them using the software available. We converted each file individually and followed no particular workflow. As such, we have deliberately not included any firm conclusions here about the SD1's image quality – we have simply used the camera as an end-user would: with the aim of getting the best results possible, both in-camera and via Raw conversion. We're working on the review at present and will publish additional information, including studio shots, as soon as we can. 

Samples gallery

There are 41 images in the samples gallery. Please do not reproduce any of these images on a website or any newsletter / magazine without prior permission (see our copyright page). We make the originals available for private users to download to their own machines for personal examination or printing (in conjunction with this review), we do so in good faith, please don't abuse it.

Unless otherwise noted images taken with no particular settings at full resolution. Because our review images are now hosted on the 'galleries' section of dpreview.com, you can enjoy all of the new galleries functionality when browsing these samples.
