    Stathman reacted to Andrew Reid in Sigma 17-70 F2.8 on Fuji X-T4   
    The Pro version (Gen 1) with the aperture ring.
    I have not yet figured out how to transfer control of the aperture to the camera body jog dials instead though. To be honest I'd prefer it there than on an aperture ring that is too close to the body and has no markings or hard stops.
    The other thing I like about the Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 is the overall rendering. It is pretty spectacular for such an affordable zoom. Really nice bokeh and focus roll off. Amazing resolution and contrast in the middle.
    I have both the old and new versions of this lens... will see what the difference is.

    Leica haven't responded to anybody about it. Tons of users with the same issue

    It's disgraceful.
    I want a refund! Or a working camera. Whichever comes first.

    Hard to judge from the rumors....
    4k 60 is it FF or not is 10 bit and or RAW with or without DPAF?
    If it is FF 4k 60 supersampled 10bit with DPAF then imo is not underwhelming at all.

    Please do a Sigma FP video review.
    I would love to see 4-5 minutes shorts, each show different aspects of the camera. 5 min about DR in different bith depth modes, 5 min low light against A7 III / S1 / etc, 5 min about color comparison.
    My favourite videos from you are the comparison shots between cameras.
    Or one big 20min+ long review, but it's a really big project

    Just throwing this out there...
    So the plan is - I will be putting some future blog posts out in Mattias Burling style, with the voice over, the artistic shots and camera gear reviews in video form. I really like this format and Mattias did it brilliantly.
    The other thought is around some kind of live streaming and online camera 'festivals' with a good atmosphere and lots of guests. Like CineGear but online.
    I'm open to advice and what you guys want from EOSHD on YouTube.
    It is actually going ahead this time in a big way and won't be a one off podcast or interview.
    Suggestions welcome and ideas even more so

    A simple LUT smoothing fixes it, it's easy to do in Matlab, but I couldn't create an online version yet. It's on the todo list

    Dear Fuji
    If you are reading, please do make a dedicated video camera, but keep the XH2 as a hybrid.
    Thanks

    Stathman reacted to Andrew Reid in Fuji X-H2 - They can't decide whether to cancel it... Or?   
    The X-H1 seems to be £699 brand new at the moment and I don't see how Fuji make any money at that price. It's such a well built and high-spec camera. The shutter mechanism alone is one of the most advanced mechanical designs in any modern camera on the market. If I were them, I'd have released the X-H2 already and bumped the price back up, getting shot of the old one. I thought it might have been discontinued at one stage, but I think they are still making them and sales seem ok?
    I'd argue with Fuji that the difference in design and operability alone does allow it to coexist quite happily!

    The X-H1 was nigh on perfect, Fuji should just put the X-T3 sensor & 10bit in it and get it out the door. I don't see the need for any complete re-imagining to be honest, although some sort of electronically variable ND glass over the sensor would be nice.

    Stathman reacted to BTM_Pix in Panasonic S1 V-LOG -- New image quality king of the hill   
    To be honest, I think we've had our fun with that type of stuff and Panasonic have tightened it up but on the off chance I'd start with examining what modes that the S1H has that the S1 doesn't and take it from there.
    FYI, though, I had a brief look at the S1H that @Andrew Reid had with him in Barcelona and the authorisation routine has changed so that will need working around as well.

    Stathman reacted to ImagineArt in Sigma FP - 4k RAW Dynamic Range   
    So far I am enjoying RAW 4K on the FP minus the fact I still can't see what I shot in camera. What are your experiences with Sigma's RAW performance and what are your thoughts on the dynamic range recovered in RAW? Below is a little stress test I shot in Boston a few months ago.

    From keeping up with the thread myself, I'd say:
    1) IBIS, but this is controversial... some are just saying the testers are being unrealistic
    2) overheating? (although like the latest video said which raised this "issue", if you flip out the screen then that releases the heat. But he didn't go into how much longer the camera can go if you flip it out always?)

    Remember, the X-T4 is still only pre order, wait until it ships and gets into more hands before judging it!

    A peek for you of the first shot from the GFX 100 shoot with @BTM_Pix
    Edit is ongoing!
    This isn't "perfectly" in focus but it'll give you an idea of the kind of creamy 10bit tones from this "medium format Alexa".
    The dynamic range is extreme.
    This was shot in classic chrome. I shot a lot of F-LOG and the files are deeper than Oscar Wilde.

    The XH2 will still come. 

    In reality the XH1 should have been the XT3 with IBIS and the XT3 should have been what the XT4 is. That said its ok, Fuji is still doing more than most companies. 

    TBH The XT4 will be an ideal camera. Nice bright screen, IBIS, great image as per Fuji, and great battery life(especially with a grip). It needs to get rid of the record limits tho.

    Still beyond me why Fuji dropped their best LCD hinge implementation - the XT100. That one and the S1R are the best LCD hinges, pleased everyone - flip and flippy at the same time.

    I believe that everyone who used X-T3 and X-H1, all wished for a camera with X-T3's guts in an X-H1 body. 
    It seems that this is exactly what we get, plus some extras.
    Keep the price at 1500$ and I couldn't be any happier. 😉
