    Ok. Let's agree on this.
    There is noone to buy those two cameras for AF perfomance. They both rely on same technology that we all know it's not efficient.
     
    Let's concetrate on image quality thay can deliver.

    It's a special Brexit price.

    Yes I am. Ordered from WEX yesterday, it's in stock. Cost £2399 with the 40mm.
    I am looking forward to proceeding in Resolve with my Sigma Fp footage as I've been doing for years with Cinema DNG from the 5D Mark III with ML. Was always very happy with the results.
    If what you say has a big impact on colour and white balance, hopefully Resolve can have support for Cinema DNG beyond just Blackmagic's own cameras...
    Don't make us go back to Premiere
    Good to know thanks.

    Modified Sigma's smaller grip to allow it to hold a T5; haven't printed it yet so not so sure how comfortable it is.

    Also samsung t5  ssd 2 terabyte is only 299 usd.
    And after you get home with the footage you can use slimraw to compress the dngs.
    https://www.slimraw.com/
    You can use the ssd directly as the source and compress while you copy to another drive.

    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!
    cheers
