“From the moment we first considered making cameras, we at SIGMA have never stopped asking ourselves this question:“What parts and materials do we need to craft the best cameras possible?”
Photography is an art accessible to anyone with the desire. For this reason, we wanted to create a camera that would let anyone experience the true essence of photography. Give everyone the opportunity to take the perfect picture. A camera that is approachable. Convenient. Excellent. While no doubt being quite a bit different from the typical camera, it would make people simply love to take pictures. More than a goal, making this camera a reality was our passion.”
