In the past we received some rumors about Olympus testing Foveon sensors on their cameras. The Foveon sensor creates its RGB color output for each photosite by combining the outputs of each of the stacked photodiodes at each of its photosites. Anyaway this are really unreliable rumors. What’s true is that Sigma is releasing the new SD15 camera wich uses such a sensor. It will be very interesting to see how the new and improved Foveon sensor will perform.
The leaked camera has been found inside nothing else than BHphoto (click here to see the picture and read the specs)!
