Sigma SD1 Wood

I’m not sure who’s driving the Sigma SD1 trainwreck; however, this limited edition wooden SD1 is about as far from the tracks as things can get.  As if the $6900 price tag for the Sigma SD1 wasn’t laughable enough, this limited edition wooden model will set you back €9,999 ($13,750 USD equivalent).

Sigma SD1 Wood

For about the same price of this wooden SD1, you could buy a Hasselblad H4D-31 w/ 80mm f/2.8 lens, OR a Mamiya 645DF w/ 28MP back along, 80mm lens, and another lens or two, OR a Nikon D3X, a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens and a few speedlights, OR . . . you get the point.

Too bad it’s only available in Germany, eh?

But it looks beautiful.
Never the less it a camera only very few people will look for or run after.
Some who wants to take photo’s will grab a Nikon or Canon , or may be a Pentax or Sony, and not a SD1wooden or “normal” its far to expensive and outdated before it was even launched.

You’re missing the point. Beyond picture taking and video making, this is the perfect night photography SLR that you can throw at your agressor in case of assault. Ok I’m out of here :)

Damn. I think I need to drive a Jag or Bentley to own this sort of burled walnut goodness.

The photographer in me would never buy one, but the woodworker in me is inspired. Hmmmmmmmm… imagine some nice wood inlays on a limited edition of your favorite camera.
