SIGMA fp


as well as below with the digital absorb and also today i desired to share a quick upgrade on my experience with the sigma fp currently for those of you that missed my unboxing and initial check out this cam it is a remarkable item of modern technology you have actually obtained 4k raw 12-bit video ability using of course an nvme drive like the sabrint nano that i have below you can use a samsung t5 you know really whatever you wish to use one terabyte will certainly get you 54 mins of raw uhd once more 12-bit dng video and with the package 45 millimeter lens i have to claim i’ve been really impressed it’s extremely sharp and also i comprehend why sigma paired this lens with this body it’s because it truly carries out unbelievably well currently this can fire stills and a lot of people have actually asked me concerning you understand still efficiency and this is a tiny gear cage that sigma did send out over to utilize in tandem with this as well as i highly recommend having a cage for this cam since it is very tiny but you’re mosting likely to need to attach things to it okay no doubt regarding that whether we’re speaking about shotgun microphone if you wish to make use of an exterior display whatever it might be you’re mosting likely to intend to have the cage on board as well as naturally if you’re mosting likely to place a drive currently one point i will certainly state regarding making use of the severn is you’re not going to locate a lot of cage accessories developed for this whereas naturally little gear makes a cage accessory for the t5 so that’s something to be knowledgeable about however that’s not to claim you can not do something customized by yourself which is specifically what i’ll be doing but as i was pointing out when it involves still efficiency despite the fact that this is a full frame video camera and although it has the capability to be a terrific still imaging gadget you require to bear in mind that it is not created to be an autofocus cam i’m not claiming it doesn’t have autofocus it does it has eye autofocus detection but there are only 49 points of comparison detection on this so if you’re believing something like the a7s you understand if you’re thinking about something similar to this person right below which has over 700 phase discovery

points uh forget contrast autofocus you’re not mosting likely to have that type of autofocus prowess however i assume most videographers that are interested in this video camera they’re not after autofocus as a matter of fact everything they’re going to be doing is in guidebook as well as i think you’re mosting likely to be really pleased with what you get i indicate in terms of having the ability to drop this right into it’s especially mosting likely to be fixed you’re not mosting likely to be dropping this into anything else uh the video clip to edit it but having that raw video and being able to treat this is basically like any movie theater cam so a red or a black magic and afterwards have every one of that contrast and capability to basically grade your video footage as well as make it look specifically how you want that’s something you just can’t finish with anything else at this rate factor or in this class of cam i mean type factor sensible it just does not exist which’s component of the factor i was attracted to this when it first launched the menu system is new to me gave i haven’t used a sigma video camera like the quadro line in the past yet i do not discover it to be something that isn’t intuitive in regards to use it’s extremely equivalent i really feel to what i’m accustomed to with sony approved with the a7s3 i simply drawn out we do have a brand-new menu system i don’t assume it impacts the barn doors off of your house that doesn’t make any type of sense to be off the barn but you get what i’m stating they didn’t transform the wheel so i don’t really have a problem

with their menu system now if i had been a sigma customer for several years i might have a different viewpoint on this i would certainly because i would have context in the exact same means i do for sony and also i just sort of pointed out that i believe it’s great that it changed however it didn’t transform the globe it’s simply something that was long past due however when it pertains to stills you understand i am relegated to the 45 mil and it is once more an exceptionally sharp lens and also i assume it’s really evident why this is the package lens for it because it’s best for shooting video clip when it comes to stills it does an excellent task too and also you simply change right below in order to jump in between the still and also video function and also you understand it’s it’s responsive yet when it involves autofocus once more which i don’t think most of individuals are going to be utilizing it’s not going to be a champion in that respect it’s not it’s not there to actually live in a world of autofocus this is really devoted to hands-on shooters across the board in almost every means do i wish that this had a touch display i mean i do not think it would be a negative point yet i do not think it’s necessary there are a great deal of things that this electronic camera doesn’t have that a whole lot of you available that have actually checked out it wish that it had and also i completely obtain that but in the very same blood vessel i believe that it’s outstanding that this camera even exists and also i more than happy that sigma has actually also created an option to create raw video clip that virtually can go anywhere i mean consider it you intend to place this on a drone you intend to put this behind the eight ball that you’re not mosting likely to be able to fit a traditional cinema electronic camera that exists as well as do not get me wrong red is making smaller sized video cameras everyone is

blackmagic they’re smaller than they made use of to be yet this redefines it and this has gotten on the market for a while and also with their latest firmware i suggest this point is a cam it’s numerous things that you recognize basically again look for something at the rate point that outperforms it and also that’s where i think you’re going to be hard-pressed there truly isn’t anything else to choose from at the very least that i’ve seen touched or experienced which’s why this was something from the day it was introduced that it was introduced by sigma i wanted to get it in hand currently if you need a viewfinder i unboxed it they make one it’s expensive yet it’s most likely the ideal viewfinder of its kind i indicate it’s a true cinematographer’s viewfinder so if you’re searching for a little pop-up item of crap like you understand many sony cams have and also i’m calling it what it is i suggest those pop-up evfs are far better than absolutely nothing you know maybe that’s something sigma incorporates into the future generation however i don’t think they require to because a true videographer cinematographer is not interested in that little evf they’re going to be utilizing an exterior display or they’re going to utilize the viewfinder that sigma’s developed due to the fact that it does its work it does eliminate from the form element no doubt concerning it and that’s something i’ll dive right into in the complete review when i discuss all the accessories that i have for this however performance on this is

really excellent you recognize battery life might be a little bit much better however an hour battery life is solid in terms of video clip capture one of the remarkable points about this besides its type element and also the raw 12-bit video that it records is the reality that it does not overheat i imply i’m a sony user so i am used to video cameras stopping due to heat issues you recognize thermals and also this point doesn’t give up to ensure that again reminds you it is a cinema cam and whatever you could assume it’s missing you probably misunderstood that its focus is to supply precisely what i simply mentioned that 12-bit raw 4k video clip with no concession to it itself so while it could be great to have a great deal of the important things i’m mentioning like in evf like a touch screen a brand-new food selection system those are things sigma can service for the following generation and hopefully there will certainly be a future generation of this video camera since this to me is how you produce competition this is how you get people to essentially entertain much better suggestions um they’re not constantly better yet in this instance i occur to believe they are i imply i do wish it had internal uh capability in terms of the recording so i state this since you recognize i am currently assessing the a7s note iii that i got brought into frame previously which can do 4k at 120 frameworks per secondly in 10-bit to an inner card an sd card right here certainly we’re delegated to 8-bit if we rely on the sd card which’s where you have to

have an nvme drive in order to completely take advantage of this yet we stay in a globe where nvme drives have actually come down considerably in cost so i don’t see that as being a huge concession as a matter of fact i see this as being a worth what this has the ability to supply and also the type variable again is incredibly unique as well as that’s the factor i intended to examine it from day one so i assume from a still viewpoint the stills it generates are great however i would never purchase this to take still photos it is a hybrid yet it’s a movie theater video camera so i presume it’s simply nice that sigma gave us the capacity to fire still images but i wouldn’t buy this to shoot stills also though it’s a complete structure mirrorless compatible lens cam i would entirely adhere to what it’s actually constructed for which is shooting raw 12-bit 4k video so that’s the story so much on my experience with the sigma fp i might wind up offering you all some examples to consider i might not but eventually the factor goes to its cost factor you know 17.99 body alone a little over two grand for the set lens combination you’re not mosting likely to reveal me a cinema electronic camera that can then that can take on it and if you’re checking out something like the a7s note 3 you’re spending 3500 body alone out the door with no glass and i truly do not assume they they stay in the exact same globe gave the a7s note iii has a whole lot going for it as well as i might do a direct contrast uh this if you need that raw 12-bit 4k you’re just going to get it right here because

discussion you’re not getting it out of the a7s note iii that will only output 10-bit 4k 60 frameworks over its full-size hdmi port right here you know you currently understand you’re obtaining more performance if that’s what you’re in fact seeking yet if you appreciate autofocus if you respect still efficiency that’s when you recognize the a7s note iii begins to claim hey take a look at me but general actually pleased with this i enjoy that it’s a go all over solution i imply that’s really the appeal of this thing i do want that we had some stablizing stablizing is something that you understand a lot of individuals i understand want but once more as a cinematographer’s camera it’s reasonable why it’s not there that’s something you can do in blog post so you know you reached just comprehend as best as feasible that sigma is truly targeting with an item similar to this and also i think i get it i indicate that’s why i had an interest in it to start with so i assume amateur and expert filmmakers alike will enjoy what this point can do i believe the rest of you available you know could scratch your head a little bit for evident reasons and hopefully that all makes good sense a deeper dive will be can be found in the future any kind of concerns or comments please really feel free to publish them strike that like switch and also as usual please do not hesitate to subscribe as well as please remain safe later on
