DCRP Review: Sigma SD10

You read our review of this camera, right?

Important note about these photos: The SD10 takes photos in RAW mode only, which must be converted into JPEG format using the PhotoPro software. In PhotoPro, I have used the "auto" adjustment feature, which enhances the images. I chose to do this because the camera requires you to post-process all images -- so you might as well fix them up too. The review will show some original images alongside adjusted ones.

Photos were taken at ISO 100, at the highest image quality setting, with the other settings at defaults.

Photos 1-8 were taken in Stockton, CA. Yes, Stockton. Lens used was the Sigma EX 17-35mm. And yes, I know there's dust on the sensor.

Photos 9-13 were taken at St. Mary's College in Moraga, CA. Same lens, same dust.

Photos 14-17 were taken in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. My SD10 had its sensor cleaned before these were taken. I used both the 17-35 and the 28-70 lenses.

Clicking on the thumbnail will display a reduced, 800 x 600 image. Clicking on the link below that will show the full-size (large!) image. Please do not judge the photo quality from any image except for the full-size image, as these smaller images were recompressed when they were downsized.

I've noted any special modes I used underneath the photo. You can click on "View EXIF data" to get additional information about each photo.

There appears to be some dust on the sensor or something in all of these.
