Sigma announce special wooden edition of the SD1
Looking for a new DSLR camera? Want something a bit different? If you answered yes to that last question, you may be interested in knowing that Sigma has just announced a new limited edition version of their SD1 camera – one that has a wood finish.
So, if the SD1 wasn’t expensive enough, you can settle on the idea of having a limited edition wooden version made instead. The wooden casing is made from Amboyna Burl, which is deformed wood from the Southeast Asian Padauk Tree, and according to Sigma, each limited edition SD1 takes 60 hours of milling, sawing, grinding and polishing to get the final result.
The internal components of the limited edition version are the same as the ‘normal’ SD1, which includes a 46MP 24x16mm APS-C X3 direct image sensor, with the only difference being that the usual lightweight magnesium alloy body has been replaced by expensive wood.
So, if you fancy getting your hands on this limited edition SD1, you’ll have to be quick because it is actually quite limited – only 10 will be made. Just make sure you’ll got the dosh ready as one will set you back $13,750 (around £8,770).
