Re: Sigma fp

I will add that I am certainly not anti-RAW. There are certainly times where it is the right tool for the job. But I think that most of the time I would prefer to connect the Sigma FP to a small 5” Atomos or BMD recorder to capture a compressed RAW that’s far more reasonable to deal with than an uncompressed RAW file. Even on a gimbal you need a monitor to see what you’re doing.

It will always be the case that processing is faster/better/cheaper off camera than on. If you want
to record standard compression schemes in real time, just add an Atomos or BMD recorder. If you can
wait until offload, then compress, if you like, during transfer.

I have long felt that we will get to the point that, like the eye, the sensor and lens will become
one. The Sigma fp is a step in that direction.
