Sigma Press Release

Three Day Camera ‘Test Drive’

Sigma Imaging (UK) Ltd has teamed up with a number of retailers throughout the UK to offer consumers a free three day ‘test drive’ of the latest Sigma cameras.

The range of Sigma ‘Merrill’ cameras provide photographers with a tool to capture images with a jaw-dropping level of detail. Each of these cameras utilise a 46 megapixel Foveon image sensor which is renowned for producing exceptional skin tones and a film-like quality. The sensor works by using three silicon-embedded layers of photo detectors and can efficiently reproduce colour more accurately, and offer sharper resolution, pixel for pixel, than any conventional image sensor. Since colour moiré is not generated, the use of a low-pass filter is not required, meaning light and colour, generated by the 46 megapixel APS-C X3 direct image sensor is captured with a three-dimensional feel.

The SD1 Merrill’s magnesium body and splash-proof design provide reassuring durability whilst the DP1 Merrill and DP2 Merrill cameras feature the same pro-spec technology in a go-anywhere compact body.

The following retailers have committed to stock a selection of Sigma digital cameras and accessories. The Sigma SD1 Merrill, DP1 Merrill and DP2 Merrill cameras, along with a selection of lenses, are available from these retailers to try for three days, free of charge. This promotion is available until April 2013.

This is a great opportunity for photographers to try out the Foveon based cameras and see for themselves how good they really are. For more information, please see one of the participating retailers or call Sigma Imaging (UK) Ltd on 01707 329 999.

Why can't they offer this type of promotion in other European countries?

I'd love a three day try out with an SD1!
