  1. I'm concerned that four methods of showing you its in record just isn't enough. So I'll be waiting until SmallRig or Tilta release their Marine Flare Launcher cage add on for it just to be on the safe side.
  2. Unless they have changed something in the protocol versus the P6K then, yes, it will be.
  3. I am dull enough to get my fun through utility though so it works on both levels for me. I've decided that the German word for people who get their fun through the misfortune of others who have over tightened their glass balcony clamps and caused the destruction of said glass balcony should be "Shardenfreude".
  4. Until recently I'd have said my most useful piece of equipment was my untethered glass balcony clamp.
  5. The multi-interface shoe is also capable of supporting an EVF as Sony did with the RX1 and the RX100M2 so it would be interesting to see if a new version of that appears for this camera.
  6. Well, no one is coming out of that story covered in any glory are they ?

    Sigma EVF

    Yep, that would tie in with the EVF and would be very interesting . I was also thinking maybe "Lens" as well if they've made a fixed lens version like a Leica Q or their own DP series.

    So it seems Sigma have registered a camera called the fp L. Let the guessing games about what the 'L' stands for commence.
  9. @kye You might want to have a look at the Dehancer colour grading suite of tools for Resolve. https://www.dehancer.com/ Aside from the film stock emulations, it also has emulation control of specific aspects such as halation, grain, gate weave and film breath so you will really be able to dig in to see the cumulative effects of all these elements on your own footage. It is free to download and try out (watermarks the image) and has an input profile for your GH5. Incidentally, the CEO of the company has also started publishing a series of lectures on how to see colour o
  10. The list is here https://www.sigma-global.com/en/cameras/fp-series/accessories/#acc_recommend The T5 is the only one listed that doesn't have any caveats listed with it but, anecdotally at least, I can say I've had no issues recording with the 500gb version of the Sandisk Extreme (not Pro) at 25fps 12 bit and its listed on Sigma's list that only 1tb and above can be used so I presume the list is quite conservative. With regard to buying replacement T5 cables, these purport to be the genuine Samsung item but without having tried one personally I can't comment how true that is.

    Don't forget the articulating arm that gave it that extra flexibility and showcased my intricate gaffer taping work.

    With the Visoflex on the Leica T its swings and roundabouts as it has an eye sensor that automatically cuts the LCD display so it actually saves a lot there but the Visoflex also has an internal GPS so that probably makes it about even. I still don't think this is what Sigma will be doing with their new viewfinder so its still very much wishful thinking on my part !

    Sigma EVF

    Yeah, this is the sort of solution I could imagine for it So it would lock into the side and bring all of the ports out and possibly convert them too so you can have full size HDMI as above but also mini XLR from the audio jack. There is even a convenient connection point for it for it of course and I'm fairly sure one of those pins carries power so it could be run without an external power source. The stork would then extend up the side to a tiltable EVF on the top like the Leica Visoflex 020 I still very much doubt it will happen though unfortunately.
  14. This current thread will be 2 years old on Sunday, so that in itself is a measure of how overdue it is if there is to be one.
  15. Next month will mark four years since the GH5 was launched. Dovetailing into the other thread on here about the increasing cost of cameras, the GH5 with its launch price of $1999 was actually the camera launch that made me think prices were getting out of hand. I'd always viewed MFT cameras to be the smart, better value and more compact choice even against the DSLR APS-C let alone FF cameras and was epitomised for me by the likes of the GH2, LX100 and GX85. There is no doubt that the GH5 was and is still proving to be a great camera but, again from my own point of view, it had d
  16. Seven minutes past embargo and the early thumbnails are in. I see glum, quizzical and No represented so far but no outright gurning just yet.

    Sigma EVF

    So, as per reports today, Sigma have registered an EVF in Korea.. Might suggest a new Fp is on the way but I'm wistfully imagining that they've pulled a rabbit out of the hat and made one that side mounts to the current Fp like the hot shoe attachment does.
  19. The embargo for the a1 reviews ends today so if anyone needs me I'll be working on my thumbnail...
  20. It might be bleeping brighter on the radar after Fujfilm issued this statement about the GFX100s yesterday being a far bigger hit than they'd anticipated. "The mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM GFX100S” scheduled to be released in late February has received more reservations than expected, and the number of preparations has exceeded. Therefore, it may take some time before the ordered product is delivered." Mind you, "more reservations than expected" might just mean they've sold seven but only expected to sell six Even if it has sold a load more relative to expectation,
  21. I don't think it is as clear cut as that when it comes to YouTube channels. If you were making money off affiliate links then the click through to purchase rate is going to be far higher for an A7Siii than something more niche than a GFX. Making a video to direct someone to an evolutionary purchase of something they already own or have a comparatively similar product to is going to be far easier than it is to guide them towards a step change in systems. Being in that niche also means there are less opportunities to make spin off content about comparisons with similar products, a
  22. I'm a photographer first and foremost so look at it the other way round. That the stills side of it exists in such a useable package (particularly in the form reduced GFX100s) is amazing and the video side of it is more than acceptable for me considering the ProRes/ProRes RAW option is also there if I need it. I brought up FF lenses primarily in respect of there not being ultra fast MF lenses being available in that they can also be used if required which means they can also help people transition into the system. I see this as a practical advantage rather than a stick to beat i
  23. It gets very, very close to their IQ but is a significantly better camera when viewed in the round. Size, weather sealing, IBIS, AF etc mean its an everyday camera. As with the Phase One and Hasselblad you are getting F1 performance but the difference is that you can also pop down to the shops in it. My point is of it being a hybrid so they are all going to be compromised but its a question of degree. The P6K has a far, far more limited stills capability than the GFX100 has a limited video capability. If you want RAW from the A7s3 then you'll need an external recorder as
  24. With the sensor size not being the minimum of what is generally considered "true" medium format (645 and above) the difference will not be as stark (and has the potential to open a whole new strand of Oh No Not The Equivalence debate ) but the upside of it not being larger is that a lot of FF lenses will get very close to full coverage and in some cases achieve full coverage. That increases the fast lens options considerably. I'm sure @Andrew Reid has put up some examples of f1.4 and f1.2 FF lenses from his GFX100 on here to illustrate it. Their hybrid credentials is what make
  25. The RED EPIC (I'm guessing it was likely this camera he was using?) introduced the HDRx mode which in basic terms recorded two tracks simultaneously at different exposures, predominantly to offer a method of increasing the dynamic range of the capture. These could then be manipulated in post in different ways in terms of blending them to create the composite image but the other use for HDRx was to provide a higher shutter speed capture for stills extraction. https://www.red.com/red-101/hdrx-high-dynamic-range-video This promise of being the nirvana of hybridity (the EPIC had a S
