Sigma Fp first shots – how does internal 8bit RAW compare to external 12bit RAW?

Comment on the forum

With the Sigma Fp it is definitely worth shooting 12bit RAW to a USB C SSD drive to make full use of the dynamic range.

If you don’t need to boost the shadows by 3-4 stops, or under expose by 3-4 stops to prioritise a particularly bright part of the frame, the 8bit RAW to SD card offers beautiful results.

Panasonic S1H becomes first and only mirrorless camera to be approved by Netflix – “same league” as Alexa LF

Comment on the forum

How about a new kind of camera benchmark – Netflix. Their production guidelines for original 4K content have been updated to include the Panasonic S1H. According to Netflix the S1H’s image in DCI 4K mode at 400Mbit 10bit 4:2:2 ALL-I plays in the same ballpark as pro cinema cameras costing many times more.

Canon join full frame 4K RAW party with 1D X Mark III – Joins Panasonic S1H, Sigma Fp and Nikon Z6

Comment on the forum

The Canon 1D X Mark III marks a surprising turn-around for Canon’s video capabilities, at least at $6000.

Although you can already shoot full frame 4K RAW on the Sigma Fp for $2000 and full frame 10bit 4:2:2 LOG on the Panasonic S1, if you do have the extra $4000 going spare down the back of the sofa, and need worse ergonomics, fewer features, no EVF and potentially some cropping, the 1D X Mark III might be a tempting choice.
