Sigma EVF-11 is a masterpiece of design

This image shows the upcoming Sigma Fp-L, with the new EVF-11 module attached which gives it a nice rangefinder-style form factor.

Cleverly, the EVF attaches directly to the HDMI port with no cabling. It’s able to communicate via USB C and is powered by the camera.

Since the Sigma Fp-L (and original) have quarter inch threads on both sides of the camera, a 1/4″ screw secures the module in place (as if it were attached directly to a cage).

Firmware update turns Panasonic S1 into an S1H (with record-time limit in demanding modes like 6K)

Panasonic S1 owners continue to get a generous deal.

Panasonic has today announced firmware update 2.0 for the camera.

In a nutshell, the S1 gets a lot of the S1H high-end recording options. 5.9K and C4K in 10bit. 4K/60p in 10bit. Anamorphic 4:3 12bit RAW at anything up to 5.9K via HDMI.

Panasonic did not stop there. The S1H now has BRAW output (to the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR), and the S1R gets 10bit Hybrid LOG Gamma as well as a 5K mode similar to the Leica SL2.
