  1. Adding to my above post, this article is interesting: https://blog.sigmaphoto.com/2021/sigma-fp-l-camera-quick-guide-features-photos-faqs/ It doesn't major on the sensor being full frame, but rather on the 61 megapixles... In CineD's review of the camera, they quote from a conversation with Sigma's product manager for the fp cameras, Wakamatsu-san as follows: "For now, please see below the recommended crop factors for EACH scenario: For the best Resolution, x1.3 – 2.48 For phase detection AF, x1.0 and x1.53 For best dynamic range, x1.24" This reinforces tha
  2. I think the tendency of youtuber reviews is to focus on specs and camera comparisons, rather than use cases and who/what the camera is intended for. I guess it's easier, and controversy always gets the 'click'... I like Gerald's channel but this video missed the mark for me. I'm really liking this camera for its compact travel friendly size, modularity, those colours and its focus on great images straight from the camera (rather than leaning on fix it in post). It seems to me this suits the photography-schooled shooter who likes the minimalist gear approach, for both stills and vide
  3. a supplementary question to this one, thinking about mounting options on my rigs: what is AFX's possible mounting radius (assuming the unit is mounted sometimes beside or below the camera, as well as above on a hotshoe) from the lens?
  4. Many thanks for the comprehensive answer. My order is now placed!
  5. If you use the AFX on different cameras, I'm assuming you need to calibrate for each camera assuming the AFX mounting point (in relation to the lens) varies across cameras. Can you simply store different camera presets for each lens? Is there any limit to the number of stored lens calibration presets? I'm close to ordering, this looks fantastic. Just want to make sure I understand the practicalities of using it across different cameras.
  6. The other factor I think is under-played in your analysis is the impact of Chinese manufacturers. The know-how and capability of Chinese manufacturers has piggy-backed on the big Japanese camera companies and American big tech firms that have production plants in China. And so the economics of the industry has changed, and I would imagine this is a challenge for incumbent brands: how do you get a return on your R&D spend, and sustain that spend, when the Chinese manufacturers are racing ahead now and pricing aggressively? Blackmagic and Atomos have found their ways of doing it. I
  7. I'm a fan of the micro four thirds format, and the access it provides to lots of glass. Personally, I'm waiting to see what the GH6 looks like before deciding where I go next from my GH4. Frankly, the GH4 has all the capability I need aside from a bit more dynamic range at times, and better low light capability. A GH5S might be my next step, rather than the GH6 - but I probably won't be able to resist all the new bells and whistles... I'd be more inclined to look at the Sigma FP than this new Sony camera, and be forced to change all my glass. Lately, I've been finding I'm even enjoyin
