  1. Blackmagic have just updated their Video Assist to record Braw from the Leica SL2-S - anyone here able to test it? I'm very curious. Update page: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/readme/5939d7b7a4ab432598476c0bbefc8116
  2. 'Don't use color wheel adjustments(Lift, Gamma, Gain and Offset) - so curves only? or it's ok to use the LOG wheels - seems like a weird thing to rule out.
  3. @kye I just checked, with a VA I can record Braw 1080p 119.88fps. In Resolve, a clip I shot at UHD 25p is said to be 16bit... but I don't think that's right. This file is straight out of the Video Assist, recorded in Braw Q5. In an app called SCOOP! - which tells you metadata, it says the bitrate is Variable. I'm not sure exactly what the numbers are, but in real life, I love Braw out of the Sigma. It's my go-to camera at the moment. EDIT: Interestingly, a clip from my P4k also says 16bit in Resolve...
  4. Definitely good it doesn't go over when in record mode... That'd be an annoying button to press. Looking forward to testing it all out this weekend.
  5. Nice, thanks for the heads-up! That independent settings between cine and still is also a thing for me. Do you know if False Colour also goes through HDMI?
  6. I've just set the zebras on the VA to a lower % Expose so the highlights hit the zebras and then knock it down a touch. Seems to give me good results.
  7. There's a big Resolve update being announced in 9 hours. I wonder if there will be any hints or even a reveal today.
  8. I have exactly the setup you're talking about, and absolutely love it. It's so light weight and the footage is fantastic. I will say though, monitor on for external raw is well worth doing. Braw works pretty well in Premiere now, and you have the added benefit of changing the angle of the screen. I have my monitor mounted on the back, so to the person being filmed, it doesn't look much bigger or more intimidating than the actual camera without the monitor. Here's a couple images with a 28mm FD lens (also a very nice combo)
  9. @Andrew Reid - I've mostly been shooting Braw with my FP, and never really tested the internal recordings. Do you still recommend those settings, or have you found an alternative? (assuming shooting raw isn't a possibility for various reasons)
  10. Sigma recently released a statement about a three-layer image sensor that they want to get into a camera and onto the market as soon as possible. I hope they can get it ready soon. They first mentioned in in 2019 with loose plans to release in 2020, but they obviously had some hangups. Glad to see they've not given up on the idea though. https://www.sigma-imaging-uk.com/update-development-of-sigmas-three-layer-image-sensor/ https://www.sigma-global.com/en/news/2020/02/08/10874/
  11. According to this release about the focussing... https://www.sigma-global.com/en/news/2022/01/20/17062/ * SIGMA fp L will be supported by updating to firmware Ver.2.00 scheduled to be released on January 27, and SIGMA fp will be supported by updating to firmware which is scheduled to be released in April. No word on what else will come to the OGFP, but I would imagine most of the same updates.
  12. Nice, thanks. As an FP user, I also found this line quite interesting... * SIGMA fp will be supported by updating to firmware which is scheduled to be released in April. I wonder what else they'll be adding to that firmware.
  13. Where is the info from? The nominations are announced on 8th Feb.
  14. Have you checked out the Portkeys LEYE ? There's also a version with SDI. It's more expensive, but I think it'd be worth it instead of going through converters. They also have a bigger EVF, The OEYE which can control RED menus, but that's much more expensive.
