  1. "Pocketable." Full Frame. L-mount. 370 grams. Dustproof, splash-proof, and with a large heat sink for long continuous shooting. 24p 4K, 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW. From the start, the list of specs for the new fp camera from Sigma is very exciting for filmmakers who want a small camera capable of big images. From 'No Film School' email.
  2. Hello everybody, I have a GH4 and I've recently rented several lenses Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG Nikon mount used on speedbooster on my GH4 Sigma 18-35 1.8 Nikon mount used on speedbooster on my GH4 Veydra 16 mm MFT native mount Rokinon 24 mm cine lens, Nikon mount used on Speedbooster on GH4 I understand the point of cine lenses, such as the veydra and the rokinon as far as follow focus is concerned. They do behave like true cine lenses. But unfortunately after an intensive 3 day testing, I can testify that the two Sigmas are superior in image quality, in any aspect of image quality, to the Veydra and the Rokinon. So for somebody who simply can't buy a set of cine lenses at $ 3000 per lens, if I'm going to spend less than $ 1000 per lens I simply can't justify to by a Veydra or a Rokinon after discovering how amazing the Sigmas are! Sure, they don't have a focus system that allow the hook up of a follow focus system,but at my level in my game and finance I must go for the better image quality and just adapt as far as focus. Do you agree with me that the quality of the image is much more important that how the lenses focus? I must say that it's very easy to manually focus with the two Sigmas, you just have to do it by hand and it doesn't look professional but I simply can't give up the quality I've seen in the Sigma 20 mm 1.4 for a lesser lens that would have a more "cine" look. Any suggestions anybody? Thanks Philippe
  3. Is it mostly based of preference? The one's I know by name are Canon, Sony, Zeiss, Cooke's, Leica's, Sigma's, Panavision, Arri and Rokinon. I like the Zeiss super speeds because the smoothness of the gears whenever on I'm on a follow-focus rig. Also the sigma's quality I really love. Rokinon's are pretty decent for their price when you need to get something like a knock-off zeiss, I've heard people say. I own two Roks, really are impressed with them. So all in all, does it comes down to preference/price? or are there more factors?
  4. Dear colleagues, we have done a test with SIGMA prime lenses and two of the zooms for cinematography. It can be downloaded from the IMAGO page (http://www.imago.org/). http://www.imago.org/index.php/technical/item/674-the-sigma-prime-lenses-test-review.html http://www.imago.org/index.php/technical/item/675-the-sigma-zoom-lenses-test-review.html You can see videos at: I hope it's of your interest Best regards Alfonso Parra AEC,ADFC www.alfonsoparra.com SPain Tel 34 639 109 309 Colombia Tel 57 3115798776
  5. So I had a heated discussion today about this topic with other "cinematographers". I had information thrown at me from all sides and I don't know what to believe anymore .Can somebody please clean this up for me once and for all. Ok I bought a Sigma Art 18-35mm 1.8 lens for my FS5. The lens is a APS-C so it fits well on the camera. A lot of people are using it. So the question is... Is this really giving me 18-35mm or 28.8-56mm? I was under the impression that the 1.5 crop factor only applied when you were using a full frame lens. A guy then tells me all lenses are for full frame and you have to multiple 1.5 with any lens that you put on it no matter what its for. He was really furious when explaining this to me. Who is right?
  6. Hey guys. Check out this nice article about this full frame lens phenomenon we're seeing in 2017. If anyone was at NAB or followed it, you know how big full frame lenses have become this year. We sat down with Matt Duclos of Duclos Lenses and Mark LaFleur of Old Fast Glass to discuss what this means and where we're heading in cinema. http://blog.sharegrid.com/blog/why-full-frame-lenses-expose-the-future-of-cinema-cameras
  7. Selling my old Gear as i have a raven now. Looking to get $1250 for this setup. All items have cosmetic wear. Sigma 18-35mm is Nikon mount, Speedbooster is the pocket cinema camera version and both have no issue. The pocket camera glass in front of the sensor needs replacement or just removed; Would have done this but would rather sell at a give away price. Location NYC PM me if interested Cheers
