World's smallest full-frame camera.
Last night, in addition to debuting three lenses everybody knew were coming, Sigma revealed something nobody saw coming: the L-mount Sigma fp, "the
Just being DNG - and thus somewhat compatible out of the box - isn't enough though.I don't see why Adobe wouldn't be able to process DNGs from this camera out of the box.
My experience has been somewhat in the opposite direction, yet with another GR, the III. Without specific camera support in LR6, it still handles the files rather well. Color isn't spot on without some tweaking, but fine detail and grain are handled better than the other converters I've tried so far.Just being DNG - and thus somewhat compatible out of the box - isn't enough though.
I had the Ricoh GR a few years ago - and its DNG raw files were "compatible" to the Capture One version at the time... But due to lack of proper colour profiles the colours weren't particularly nice and some casts simply weren't correctable.
The Sigma DP cameras also had some red/green vignetting issues, that would have to be specifically profiled and corrected for - regardless of which "container" the files were saved in.
With these new cameras using conventional bayer filter sensors, one can hope that it's going to be fairly straightforward for the raw software developers to create profiles/support... We'll see - fingers crossed
Especially considering the size & weight of Sigma's "Art" lenses for Sony FF...I had to chuckle at the news release -- a "pocketable" full frame camera? Perhaps, so long as you don't put a lens on it.
I agree. The intention seems to be a no-compromise cinema tool.It really seems like it's designed for cinema shooters, not photographers.
