Details sketchy on Sigma's SD15 DSLR apart from news of new image processing engine
UPDATE We have just learned that the SD15 will only work with SD cards, so CF cards are out.
Read the press release: Photokina 2008: Sigma announces the new Sigma SD15
Sigma is showing a prototype of its next DSLR, following on from the SD14, and it's called... the SD15.
One thing we know is that it has the same 14 megapixel file output, which Sigma calculate as 2,652x1,768 pixels (4.7MP) times 3 layers thanks to its Foveon X3 sensor. The other snippet of info that we understand is that a new and improved True II image processor will be featured in the camera, hopefully speeding the camera's operation up and further improving image quality.
From the outside, as you can see in the photos taken of an example in a display case on the Sigma booth, the SD15 looks very similar to its predecessor. One key difference is the move from a 2.5 inch LCD screen to a 3 inch part.
And that's about it. If we hear anymore, we will update this story. In the mean time, here are some more pictures from the stand:
