  1. You and every c100, c300, 5D, Blackmagic operator out there. Clearly you/me are doing something wrong since we manage to get good results
  2. This is not true any more. The Sigma DP1, DP2 DP3, SD and SD H Qattro all shoot native DNGs which of course is editable in any raw editor you can think of. The original DP1 and DP2 is also Lightroom compatible without shooting DNGs. Another myth is that one must use a tripod. Obviously you don't need a tripod anymore than you do on a film camera. I've never used one, not once, with a Foveon. Personally I have loved all my Sigma Foveon cameras and I'm in the process of buying the SD Quattro H to see how I like it compared to the regular Quattro.
  3. They did a couple of years ago before I switched to FCPX. Guess they removed it again..
  4. Huge reason I like using the EOS-R for pro shooting. I've set a PP in camera and don't grade at all, just exposure adjustments. Looks fantastic. It's very close to my workflow with stills which is also very minimal.
  5. "Better" is always subjective. If you ask me h.265 is a total deal breaker. I want a high bitrate h.264 or Prores over it any day. But I get that others may like it.
  6. I wouldn't consider 400mbit to be low bitrate. I'm just hoping they will skip h.265 for as long as it's possible.
  7. No idea. I've had Sigma Foveon cameras both with and without video. Personally I hope they leave video out of it like they have on the Quattro.
  8. A FF Foveon is confirmed for 2020.
  9. Honestly, they can lock them in at iso100 for all I care. Been dreaming a long time for a base iso 50 or even 25 in a camera. The ISO 6 looks tasty even though I suspect it's a pull from 100.
  10. Finally had time to read the article and luckily I don't have to pre-order anything until 2020 as I had planned. "This is NOT the Foveon camera that will come in 2020…this is a “regular” 24MP Bayer sensor L-mount camera scheduled to be released in autumn!" Big pass on the FP for me but it will be interesting to follow.
  11. Only two things on my to do list. 1. Pre-order this 2. Prepare for all the negativity spawned by hype and then disappointment when people realize that all Sigmas so far, lovely as they are, are iso100 cameras.
  12. We don't. The point is that you can't dictate what "dumbing down" means. It's subjective. There are no end all feature that means nicer image according to everyones taste and workflow. I choose the best tool with the best specs in order to get the best possible results. In no way am I dumbing down anything. It just happens to be that tool is recording HD.
  13. Just as reference here are the stats from the last 28 days on my entire channel. Smartphone 40% Computer 39% Tablet 12% TV 7,9% Gaming console 0,8% I would be completely shocked if even 5% of the computer users watched the 4K uploads in 4K.
  14. Don't forget to take the speedbooster into account. What you see might not be the lens.
  15. Counting up all the blind tests and shootout videos I've made we must be talking at least 50 cameras, probably closer to 100. The results are always the same. It doesn't matter.. If you can get hold of an R to try it out it could very well be worth the time. Personally I enjoy it. I don't own it but when buying new gear for my employer it was an easy choice. There are always "ifs" and "buts" to tests. And conclusions are about as subjective as color
  16. The results are in. Some are a little funny, others kinda expected but still interesting. When I counted the first time a few days ago the funny part was that J wasn't to far behind I. But I didn't expect this. (BTW, this morning J was still in the lead between the two.)
  17. Since Ive so far never seen the "pixelation blue sky issue", can someone tell me what it is I have to do to provoke it? Could be good to see it first hand and how it came about in order to avoid it. Format, type of exposure etc?
  18. Amen, hopefully the $200 challenge will prove that even further.
  19. Counted all the votes so far. The results are interesting and partly funny
  20. I would definitely had preferred the 400mbit Canon way or Panasonics lovely 200mbit HD. I will pre-order the FF Sigma Foveon as soon as it's announced. And then a used S1 could make sense as a b-cam. Or I will get another SD Quattro and snag some SD lenses which should drop when the system is more or less dead. They can be used on Sony as well so they aren't too bad to hold on to. The Last mount might actually turn them into the most affordable lenses around for Sony.
  21. The votes have started to slow down now so if I find time to edit tomorrow. Otherwise it might have to wait until the weekend.
  22. That link only made me more certain that it's a made up problem. Don't you have a link to anything showing that it is a "well known" or at least "known" issue with cDNG in the BMCC and original BMPCC? That thread is about Braw so it's not a good example, since none of the cameras shoot it. Also if it's well known there should be plenty of threads and videos.
  23. The sun kept going in and out of the cloud which affected the strength of the ND, which can really mess up colors in my experience. Not to mention IR.
  24. This is a blind test comparing videos from a couple of different cameras, lenses and filters. I have not tried to match the images since that would take away the point of the test. Im looking at quick turnaround, color science as well as the effect different types of lenses and filters have on the final image. As you can see the light changed quite a bit between shots but it doesn't matter.
