Sigma Fp-L with c-mount lenses

Didn't think this would work at first.


Turns out it does, and then some!

The 9.5K sensor in this thing has enough left over for 4.8K in 2x crop mode

The Ultra HD is oversampled from this 4.8K and we have our nice looking Cinema DNG internal to SD card. Something the Micro Four Thirds cameras can't do.

So it is basically a Digital Bolex at this point.

Frame grab:


The form factor is also perfect for these lenses being so small.

It feels balanced as a Super 16mm handheld candid camera.

It has one over on the Sony a1 for c-mount as well... The 2x crop is sticky, between Cine and Stills, and is remembered every time you turn it on. Whereas the Sony clear image zoom keeps getting reset when you power down or switch modes.

So yeah, I think my Digital Bolex D16 itch has finally been scratched!!

It's also perfect for bunny pics

This looks really interesting - any update on how it went @Andrew Reid?

And how the rolling shutter using the FP l in super 16 crop?

Just saw a Bolex D16 on the local used marketplace for 3,500 usd and got really tempted. Though anything that can approach the same raw image quality is interesting.
