Sigma Creates a Limited Edition SD1 with Wood Casing

October 14th, 2011

Limited-Sigma-SD1.JPGWe’ve seen quite a few special edition
cameras come out this year for photographers that want something with
a little style. Most have them have been a gorgeous dark red, though
other companies opt for slick silver.

Sigma has decided to go another route
with their SD1. They’ve wrapped the camera in a rich wood casing. It’s made from Amboyna Burl wood, which is apparently
quite expensive to get. Combined with the matte black plastic of the
rest of the camera and lens it’s, well, hideous. It’s unquestionably
ugly.

So what will this monstrosity cost?
It’s coming in at 9,999 Euros or around $14,000. That’s a $4,000
markup from the normal sale price of the camera.

The good news is that they’re only
making ten of them, so unless you know someone who has 14 grand to
blow on something like this, you probably won’t ever have to see it
again.
