A photograph starts with pressing the shutter and ends with manipulating the image to reproduce what you saw.
You work with the full dynamic range, broad color spectrum and delicate gradations of shadow and light contained in the photo data file. This rich palette lets you finish the photo as you like.
We encourage you to take advantage of the x3f RAW format because it preserves the complete original image information gathered by Sigma's X3 full color capture system technology.
SIGMA Photo Pro software is designed for the creative photographer who wishes to personally control the image finishing process. It allows you to "develop" the image data you shot in RAW mode.
Ever since we made our first digital camera, we have continued to refine our RAW data processing technology. The result, we believe, is the finest digital darkroom software available today. It has precisely the functions you really need — no more, no less. Even if you are new to RAW file formats, the intuitive interface makes it easy to use.
For image correction, the Adjustment Controls Palette offers seven parameters: exposure, contrast, shadows, highlights, color saturation, sharpness, and the X3 Fill Light feature. Together with the Color Wheel, these versatile tools let you craft original masterpieces of photographic art.
To bring out the full potential of the 46MP image data captured by the new-generation Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor, the full range of functions also includes white balance control, highlight correction, noise reduction and transverse aberration correction.
A new monochrome interface lets you create powerful and authentic black-and-white images using the complete light information captured by the Direct Image Sensor.
