  1. Hi I have been searching the net, but have not managed to find any answer to my question. I have a Sigma fp and a Samsung t5 that I connect to the single USB-C port on the camera. I also have a Weebill-S and with the new firmware one could control the Sigma fp from the Weebill-S. I guess there is no way one can split the USB-C port and use it for both recording and controlling the camera? Sorry for the stupid question, but just trying to figure out my options. Thanks in advance.

    Doubt that, but they keep surprising me. From the interviews I have read given by the CEO, it seems they don't want to go back to the quattro sensor design. The new F sensor will be 1:1:1 design. I would think that an fp with APS-C sensor could be more likely than an APS-C Foveon. Remember Sigma is firstly a lens producers. They don't need to make an APS-C camera to make APS-C lenses.

    No video for the Foveon FF. I don't remember where I read it but pretty sure I read it in an interview with the CEO recently. If you want high ISO or video the fp is the one you need. Foveon sensors are limited by physics when it comes to high iso, so I very much doubt the new will be very different from the older ones. If the Foveon ff had video and high ISO, why would Sigma need to make a FF Bayer sensor camera? I really look forward to reviews of this fp camera and the Foveon FF next year.

  5. I'm going to buy a BMPCC. I have the option to get one from the dealer in my country at $1350. Wrapped cameras are going for about $700 on eBay. I guess many purchased in the sales. With tax and shipping it becomes about $900. So what I'm wondering about is will I get problems if I need to send camera inn for issues? Is the BMPCC prone to problems causing it to have to be returned for service? I feel safer choosing the local dealer, but the difference in price is a nice lens.
  6. How does these compare to the Voigtlander Noktons? There is Nokton 10.5mm coming I believe?
  7. Typical of compacts to have flaring issues. In many cases it is internal flaring due to light reflecting off the sensor in the small space.
  8. Thanks for sharing! I'll turn it off too. I had noticed that the import charges were too high.
  9. 4.44Mpx is what it will be. If you manage to sample several data points from one site (like the Foveon sensor) you get better colour acuity, clarity and resolution compared to a Bayer sensor, but you don't more pixels in x or y direction.

  11. The more the specs go wild, the more I feel the urge to look backwards :-) But, impressive feat.
  12. This doesn't even start to compute. :) Your saying either A) one need to buy every new camera to learn, or B) it is the gear that is important. Both are wrong in my mind.
