    • It is not linear. I haven't looked at the exact curve, but it does non-linear companding for the 8-bit raw. The 12-bit image is linear. The DNG spec allows for color tables to be applied on the developed image. The Sigma sample images do include such tables. No idea if they replicate the internal picture profiles though. AFAIK, only Adobe Camera Raw based software (e.g. Photoshop) honors these. Unless Resolve has gained support for these tables (I am on an old Resolve version), it is very likely that the cinema5d review is mistaken on this point.
    • https://www.androidauthority.com/realme-x2-pro-review-1040898/ Which seems to be to pass on this one... OnePlus 7T and waiting for 108MP by Xiaomi on budget line still in 2019, until OnePlus will release their next generation the following year, my fair guesstimate : -)
    • I took a look at the CDNGs in Resolve just with a basic ACES setup and they both seem pretty decent - even the 8 bit one which is interesting, because an 8 bit linear image should be practically useless. Maybe it's got a log curve under the hood? That lakeside image has a lot of dynamic range variation between highlight and shadow. It might just be the right kind of image to camouflage potential issues. I'll try a non-ACES workflow where I would just interpret to Alexa LogC/AWG. From there you would write out ProRes or something. I like cinema5d, but if I understood their review correctly they seem to be saying the camera's internal picture profiles are influencing the raw recording. I don't see how that is possible, those profiles would be only baked into the h264s. They are also advocating for a log profile to interpret the raw image as well as an option for the baked h264 footage. Resolve should do a decent job of translating the DNG frames based on metadata, then if you want you can convert to your chosen log profile with CST nodes or similar. If Sigma did create a log profile and gamut, and put out a white paper then that would be nice, but I'm assuming the DNG metadata currently there isn't garbage because the images seem to look okay. A known, published log profile and gamut is essential though when recording raw for monitoring over HDMI - assuming you can add a custom LUT to your monitor. That way, you can get a decent "one light" match to what you will eventually see in Resolve after ingesting your raw footage and applying your LUT.  
    • tbh, the good 'ol Canon 5DII was good enough for me.  Ultimately, when I'm looking to get a shot it comes down to exposure and lighting anyway, if I'm pushing and pulling too much in post something went wrong when shooting the image.  I'd love for a hybrid camera to have built in ND, but I've learned to adapt around it.  I record audio out-board with a simple wireless mic system and small recorder.  No issues there.   My favorite hybrid cameras so far were the Lumix GX7 and EM5II.  As you can tell, I'm pretty modest about things.  I own the GH5 and use it alot, but it has a lot of features I don't bother with --and I feel like I overspent on it, based on MY needs.  For instance,  I'd shoot again with a GX7 in a heartbeat.  Could probably buy one used for under $200.
    • I look at my photos and video on several different screens and they all look different.    Usually, I prefer the colour i get from my cheap little tablet.      I have been thinking about colour checking lately though for my NEXT computer....so that would be nice to learn about going forward.
