Sigma: no plans for L-mount version of the SD Quattro H camera, Foveon development starting from scratch


Sigma had a Q&A session during the CP+ show and they answers several questions regarding L-mount and the development of their full frame Foveon sensor:

Q: Is it possible to release the L mount version of the SD Quattro H camera?

A: There is no plan at this time. I think we should do it with a newer sensor than we do with an old Foveon sensor. Quattro’s image processing engine is of an older generation, and building from scratch is the same as building a new model. FP’s image processing engine is for Bayer and cannot be used for Foveon.

Q: About the development status of full-frame Foveon sensor camera:

A: Returning to a blank sheet, we are working from research and development. The development of the body has not started yet, so it is not in a situation where it can be released immediately. Future development will be led by the head office in Japan. The know-how of the A / D converter and power supply circuit to be incorporated into the sensor has not been accumulated in Foveon in the United States, and when looking at the total sensor performance, it was concluded that the method should be changed. Pixel is in the United States, and A / D converters are done with the latest technology, and the head office takes the initiative.
