Announced in September 2008 at photokina in Cologne, Germany, is the Sigma SD15 is a direct successor of the now rather long-in-the-tooth SD14 model, which was announced in September 2006 with delivery in March 2007. The Sigma SD15 records almost the same APS-C-(0.98 / 24.9 mm diagonal), Foveon X3 image of the SD14. This imager is 14.1 million 7.8μm photodiodes, and is capable of full RGB color information in each pixel location. The Sigma SD15 is a maximum size of 4.64 megapixel images (interpolated left with the "Super High" mode 4608 x 3072 pixels has been a decrease in sheet).

Rear panel controls are also slightly redesigned and transferred the functions of some keys to fit in a rapid series of condensed Sigma-key as the latest series DP. The only other change is an external flash card indicator to the lower right corner of the rear panel of the camera, even if, after opening the compartment flash cards, a change of CF / Microdrive, SD / SDHC / MMC media (but not Recent gender SDXC) is equally clear body size. total is unchanged, but the SD15 reaches a weight of 20 grams or 0.7 ounces, fell impressive in light of the large LCD screen (and most likely to spend with an SD slot.)

The SD14 is evaluative, and center weighted metering modes at the center have been replaced by a choice of evaluation, center-weighted or spot. The SD15 features a selection of seven different color modes - Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Portrait, Landscape, black and white and sepia. The SD15 is now listed as compatible with DPOF so that job creation on the memory card, which can be understood by some printers. Finally, the Russian language was added to the list of options available in the firmware SD15 ..
