    What would posses anyone with any semblance of quality control of their output to publish images like these ?
    I get that there is a race to get things out first amongst those type of review sites but fuck me.
    As for the video, the least said the better.

    You can't really downsample RAW, the reconstruction method don't work as well as you'd get aliasing in your downsampled channels and loose the ability to interpolate the missing pixels surely? 
    6K -> 4K Binning, not sure how that would work without introducing issues. Keep all the greens and dump some other colours? Seems like a lot of work when that processing work could be better spent dumping the data out. During the design they knew the sensor size so why not ensure the rest of the camera can handle the datarates, even if it was a little bigger? Sigma have no video camera line to eat into, they're perfectly positioned to disrupt.
    I can't believe that a few weeks away from supposed delivery the most basic question of whether all the movie modes are crop isn't answered!

    I see nothing to suggest that this is recording movies off anything other than a centre crop. 
    I don't see pixel binning working on a 3:2 6K sensor in any way that would make sense. I'm 99.9% that the movies are all centre crop.
    I didn't read that about stills, i'd have assumed they were full RAW, 14bit.
    Also there's no mention of whether the data in the RAW is linear or log based - 8bit linear would be utterly useless and others have pointed out banding in the movies which originally would have thought it was compression based but maybe not. So 8bit linear is pointless, in fact only 12bit linear starts getting into the realm of normal.
    Some clarification from Sigma would be useful, but i guess we don't have to wait that long.
    I really want to like this!

    No, but I see a bunch of us jumping on this camera in a few weeks with an EF adaptor, and eventually some of us will probably give in buy some L-mount lenses, and Sigma will have won.

    The SD card used in the Pocket 6K is not one approved by Blackmagic so I'm not at all surprised it didn't work too well. Perhaps check the approved media list on the BMD site next time or maybe even read the manual. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/faq/59026

    I think when you're talking about recording on the T5 drives, rather than unwieldy external screen based recorders, the whole internal/external definition becomes a bit moot.
    Conceptually, its not actually that far removed from RED drives (aside from the "proprietary" media) and no one considers that to record externally. 
    There are locking solutions for USB-C that could easily enable an after market "cartridge" type of housing and the SmallRig solution is a neat one.
    Hard to tell without taking it outdoors really but in terms of using it in combination with the loupe, I've used that same on my Sigma SD0 (and even put an LCD in it to make a cheap EVF  ) and its very solid and with it on the FP we weren't having any difficulty hitting focus.....
    Well if they were, then as this was pretty much the response from me and @Andrew Reid when they mentioned the price they'll hopefully take that into account in their final calculations

    Oh, yes, absolutely! Anyone who really needs 24p can probably afford to shell out for a second-hand 550D, maybe even a 60D if they really feel like splashing the cash.
    Or they could buy, you know, literally any camera from any of the other DSLR/mirrorless manufacturers out there.

    Shoot in 30p, but then conform it into 24p.  The subtle slow-mo of the image will make it look more cinematic.  Canon is just trying to help you become better filmmakers.

    Brian Williams reacted to Cliff Totten in Canon removing 24p from new 4K mirrorless cameras - THE MEMES   
    Its not funny. A Canon rep told there is a legitimate reason for no 24p. He said something about the way the sensor is read out. He said that Canon wants it to operate at a perfect temperature. It runs too cold at 24p, but is at an optimum temp at 30p. It was done for the benefit of the camera.

    I reckon the 30p lovers should all go and tell Hollywood and Netflix to switch.
    I don't care if the camera is aimed at me or not, only Canon's marketing people do.
    The founding principals of the cinema look include 24p and it's as important as dynamic range, RAW, etc., 25p looks similar but 24p is the standard and you can't mix the two on one timeline.
    Canon know this which is why it's another Protect the Cinema EOS margins cripple.
    Which is a shame because the new sensor technology looks good, and has finally caught up to the readout speed of others. 
    If you are calling yourself a filmmaker but prefer to shoot 30p over 24p you should be a bit embarrassed.
    25p is another matter, that has the same cinematic feel to 24p.
    I shoot 25p quite a lot because I live in a PAL region.
    I am glad it has 25p.
    But I'm not happy with the 24p bullshit spreading on this forum and screen Hz judder-stutter-bullshit. Stop doing it. Tiresome to read.
