Heat management – What Canon can learn from the Panasonic S1H and Sigma Fp

Let’s have a look at thermal management on small mirrorless cameras. The solutions shown here prevent overheating on the Sigma Fp and Panasonic S1H during long recordings. The Sigma Fp shoots 4K RAW internally from a 6K sensor and the Panasonic S1H shoots 6K internally in 10bit 4:2:2 V-LOG.

Canon can learn from the design of the Sigma Fp and Panasonic S1H when it comes to offering professional video features in a small weather sealed body.

My thoughts on the Canon EOS R5 8K monstrosity – 1TB footage per 50 minutes

What next for Sigma? What would you like to see?

Sigma Fp

In my opinion the Sigma Fp was a great camera milestone for creative shooting. As the first Sigma camera to shoot cinema quality 4K and the first full frame stills camera to record 4K RAW internally to SD card, Sigma have gained the attention of filmmakers and set a tone for a very bright future.

Panasonic 8K camera pops up again – now with full frame CMOS sensor

Panasonic’s 8K camera was last seen sporting their Super 35mm organic sensor technology, which remains under development. It can be revealed Panasonic also has a similar camera design with a larger full frame sensor (of the common CMOS type) which leads me to speculate who developed this sensor and what else we may be seeing it in.
