Sigma has just announced FP, a full frame L-mount mirrorless camera with a 24.6MP backlit Bayer sensor. But don’t let the size fool you: this tiny camera has so much to offer to both photographers and filmmakers, and it sure brings together a lot of “firsts” for Sigma. It’s the company’s first full frame camera, and the first one to shoot video (and yes, it’s 4K). It’s also the first one with a Bayer sensor. So, it’s quite a lot of news from Sigma in a single camera, so let’s dive in and learn more!
Panasonic has now officially announced the new full-frame L mount mirrorless S1H camera. With 6K 3:2 24p video capabilities, 14+ stops of dynamic range, the camera is still technically in the development stages, but it is now definitely on the way. They’re hoping to release it in Autumn 2019, though, and is expected to have a price tag of around $4,000.
Panasonic is expected to announce a new full frame Lumix camera tomorrow. The name “S1S” had been thrown around, but it seems that it’ll actually be called the S1H, according to an early leak of the announcement and photos from French website Magazine Video.
Not too much has been released about its specs yet, except that it’ll shoot 6K 30fps and 4K DCI 60fps 10-bit video, feature V-Log/V-Gamut with a dynamic range of 14 stops, and that it will have no shooting time limit.
Ever since the Panasonic S1 and S1R mirrorless cameras were announced at Photokina last year, there has been a lot of talk about their video capabilities. After all, Panasonic made the somewhat legendary GH5. And while rumours of a new “Cine Lumix” are on the horizon, it seems the S1 still has a trick or two up its sleeve.
The S1 offers a 4K/6K burst shooting mode. Essentially, what it does is shoot a video sequence from which you can extract still images. But what nobody seems to have noticed until now, is that this mode actually produces a 5184×3456 h.265 video at 200Mbps.
While Nikon’s lens roadmap is pretty clear, their intentions for future bodies isn’t, really. But Nikon has suggested that a lower entry level full frame mirrorless camera to compete with Canon’s recently announced EOS RP would be on the way. Now it looks like we might have the first leaked photo of that body, and it appears to have a name. The Nikon Z1.
With Nikon and Canon finally entering the fray and the whole Panasonic/Sigma/Leica alliance thing, it’s starting to get quite exciting in the world of full frame mirrorless. It feels a lot like when DSLRs first came into existence. Of course, we didn’t have Facebook then, so people were more concerned with shooting than measuring.
But these days, kit comparisons are inevitable, especially with the rate at which technology is advancing and new products are being released. In this video, Jay P Morgan looks at the Nikon Z6 and Sony A7III cameras. On paper, they’re pretty close, with both cameras having some slight advantages over the other in certain areas. Some of Jay’s results, though, are quite surprising.
Canon has now officially announced the new 26.2MP Canon EOS RP full frame mirrorless camera, doubling their RF mount camera lineup to 2. The new camera is a fairly basic entry level body, but not only does it set a new standard for full frame entry level mirrorless, but it’s also the lightest and least expensive full frame camera that Canon has ever made, costing a mere $1,299.
The buzz regarding a possible new entry-level Canon RF mount mirrorless camera has been getting quite intense over the last few days. And now, just the evening before an official announcement is expected, the entire spec sheet seems to have leaked.
Thanks to Amazon UK jumping the gun, we also have some idea of the price, too, with the basic model and EF to RF lens adapter costing £1,300 and US kits rumoured to start as low as $1,299.
There’s been a lot of rumours and speculation over the past few months since Panasonic unveiled their alliance with Leica and Sigma at Photokina and briefly introduced us to their two new full-frame mirrorless cameras; the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R. Now, they’re finally here. Well, at least to pre-order. But here’s all the info, specs and capabilities.
