    Default The Sigma Foveon concept

    Tried to find images made by Sigma Foveon in the Gallery but there were none.

    This concept sensor was advocated by Sigma some time ago. Supposed to give beautiful colours. Seems they had it on Sigma mount SLRs.

    Is it dead now? Was it due to the established user base of competitors (Canon, Nikon, etc) or the sensor did not function well?

    It has a lot of cons as well, like a lot of chroma noise at high ISO... :P
