Sigma SD-10

Jump to: navigation, search

Improved version of the Sigma SD-9. Sigma uses their own lens mount: S-AF. There are no third-party lenses available for this system. It is possible to mount M42 lenses via a simple adapter.

One great feature is the easily removable hot-mirror which can be flipped out by the removal of one screw. Without the hot-mirror the SD-10 has instantly become an infrared camera and can be used with IR filters for various effects. This makes it an interesting platform for creative photography.
