Its able to produce high-definition images that go beyond your expectations with its 14-megapixel Foveon CMOS sensor, which divides pixels up into 3 layers, ensuring that your photos come out beautiful each and every time.

Among this cameras other features, youll also find a continuous shooting mode of 3 photos per second, a burst mode of up to 24 shots, a quick and precise 5-point autofocus, as well as RAW and JPEG-format recording functions and a speedy start-up time of just 0.2 secs. The SD14 comes with a 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro lens with a minimum focusing distance of 20 cm over the entire focal range, which is suited to the most common settings, even Macro 1:2:3. If youre after speed and precision from a digital sensor in a high-quality casing, look no further than the SD14!

Good deal. Hot

excellent thx

Why would I buy this over say Canon or Nikon? It's more expensive and hasn't got higher specs and I am limited to Sigma lenses only.

it's got a different type sensor, which gives excellent colour reproduction and details. But the camera itself is not very user friendly compared to Nikon or Canon. I'd say buy only if know that this only if you know that this is exactly what you want. Otherwise you may very disappointed.

the Olympus e-510 has much better features, and has similar film type colour rendition............ also cheaper, the twin lens kit can be had for under £ 400 at the moment..... very cheap....

canon or nikon ? fine if youre gonna buy better lens, but if your not, the Olympus lens are the best quality by far, the reason I bought the 510 rather than a canon or nikon or Sony.............
