Canon has announced a live-event kicking off at 14:00 CEST on Thursday 9th July 2020 to reveal the eagerly anticipated Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6.
Originally set to debut at the Cannes Film Festival, “sin sin” proves the Sigma fp’s cinematic picture quality, with wonderful dynamic range and colour.
If you find a space to watch this film in a quiet moment, I’ll guarantee you’ll be moved…
For some background on this Leica SL2 problem, see my interview with Leica here.
I am currently re-testing the Leica SL2 with vertical grip, to see how the battery performs with various lenses. Following on from the earlier situation where 4K recording is met with an error message on the SL2 depending on the lenses used, Sigma has now optimised this with a firmware update for MC-21 (Canon EF mount adapter for L-mount), which should allow the adapter to be used for 4K recording. The question is, for how long!
Today Fuji confirmed a big firmware update for all the GFX cameras, but the one that is especially interesting for filmmakers is the GFX 100 update. This adds a 4K 12bit RAW output via HDMI which the Atomos Ninja V is able to compress and record as ProRes RAW. This can be smoothly graded and edited in Final Cut Pro X with full GPU acceleration.
The GFX 100 will also receive the new Classic Negative Film Simulation and Color Chrome Blue, which together I found to be my go-to new look on the X-T4 and X-Pro 3. So I am very happy about this.
Sony has confirmed that the A7S III is finally on the way this Summer, likely in July to coincide with the big Canon rivals – EOS R5 and R6.
I have some more information on what we can expect from the new flagship full frame mirrorless cameras.
In my opinion the Sigma Fp was a great camera milestone for creative shooting. As the first Sigma camera to shoot cinema quality 4K and the first full frame stills camera to record 4K RAW internally to SD card, Sigma have gained the attention of filmmakers and set a tone for a very bright future.
Above: Camera Conspiracies has a point!
I’ve always been a big Panasonic shooter and no other company has done more to pioneer affordable 4K filmmaking.
However I shouldn’t let my love of Panasonic’s cameras like the GH5 and S1H blind me to the failures.
I’m afraid we need to talk about the G100.
