Sigma sd Quattro Mirrorless Camera
Key Features
  • 29MP APS-C Foveon X3 Quattro CMOS Sensor
  • Dual TRUE III Imaging Processing Engine
  • Sigma SA Lens Mount
  • 2.36m-Dot Electronic Viewfinder
Sigma is turning camera development on its head by developing a camera specifically to take full advantage of the Global Vision lens series with the release of the sd Quattro Mirrorless Camera with a Sigma SA lens mount. This camera offers the utmost in resolution with a 29MP APS-C Foveon X3 Quattro CMOS sensor that uses a unique stacked design to deliver full color information at every single pixel without interpolation. By using a 1:1:4 RGB pixel ratio with a layered design, this eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, the sd Quattro can create 19.6MP lossless compressed raw images with a spatial resolution equivalent to, and with richer colors, than that of a 39MP Bayer sensor. These vast quantities of image data are handled quickly and efficiently thanks to a Dual TRUE III image processing engine. Additionally, the APS-C size provides a 1.5x crop factor when compared to a full-frame 35mm sensor.

All the other APS-C lens from sigma comptible with this model or the sigma fp ?
Asked by: Thomas
The Sigma sd Quattro takes SA-mount lenses and the Sigma fp takes L-mount lenses. The sd Quattro will take APS-C and Full-frame lenses as long as they are SA-mount. The Sigma fp is a full-frame L-mount camera and needs the Sigma MC-21 SA-to-L mount adapter (https://bhpho.to/2KKFvbX). You can use APS-C lenses on the Sigma fp if you use the camera in Super35 crop mode.
