Interesting article - it's impressive what Sigma are doing. Looks like the latest generation of lenses will be excellent. I hope full frame Foveon follows!
As you can see, there is an edit at the end of the article, and this edit is due to me, poor French photographer. Because I cream the web to seek infos 24/7 about foveon, I ended on this article and related it on a French forum, got it on DpR. At the end of the day I got a mail from my Zeiss/SIGMA dealer asking the SIGMA France CEO wanted to speak to me ... I phoned SIGMA France and got the CEO saying "thank you for what you do for us since years blablabla but ... we suspect you have an insider info from the Japan factory because some things you said should not be said
I was like ... WTF
This is your UK homologue who said that to a blogger at the photokina ... !!! I'm not a spy !!!
They asked me all my personal infos and all the links of my "sources".
For me this was a great insult and I will never do anything to defend SIGMA in France any more. So I ordered to erase accounts and interventions on two French forums, a grand total of 8500 posts roughly SIGMA related only, 3 years of passion. I will now collaborate with SIGMA Japan only.
is there a work around for long exposures. I have not needed more than couple of seconds yet, but i might. is it possible to have more than 30 sec exposures? for landscapes it is very important feature.
The only way to go up than 30sec with a foveon sensor is with SD15 or SD1
