The Sigma sd Quattro H Digital Camera is hte first camera to feature the newly developed APS-H size Foveon X3 Quattro direct image sensor with incredible 44.8 megapixel (51 megapixel equivalent) resolution.  Featuring the Sigma SA mount, the Quattro H is compatible with all of the Sigma Global Vision lenses in the Contemporary, Sports, and Art lines, and it is designed to take full advantage of these lenses' superb optical performance.  

The Quattro H uses a 1:1:4 RGB pixel ratio with a layered design, thus eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter. The sd Quattro H can create 25.5MP lossless compressed raw images with a spatial resolution equivalent to, and with richer colors, than that of a 51MP Bayer sensor. These vast quantities of image data are handled quickly and efficiently thanks to a Dual TRUE III image processing engine. Additionally, the relatively unique APS-H size provides a 1.3x crop factor when compared to a full-frame 35mm sensor.

Image quality is the key advantage of the Foveon sensor, with the processing and available feature set allowing photographers to benefit as much as possible from the technology. Ensuring sharp imagery, this newly designed sensor has a hybrid phase- and contrast-detect autofocus system with nine selectable points. There is even focus peaking for shooters who prefer the precision of manual focus. Users will also be able to shoot at up to 3.8 fps in High quality and with a sensitivity reaching up to ISO 6400. Also, a Super-Fine Detail exposure mode is available which will take seven exposures and blend them into one exceptionally clean raw image file with a wide dynamic range.
