(2022) Here is a short film I made to test the capabilities of my new Sigma fp camera. I took my camera and my 28mm and 85mm Pentax lenses down to the San Francisco waterfront for a walk. I filmed whatever looked interesting with an eye toward testing the Sigma fp’s ability to capture color and dynamic range. I handheld the camera or used a monopole throughout. The film was captured in the CinemaDNG format which gave me absolute control when color grading in DaVinci Resolve. Because the camera was handheld, I used Resolve’s stabilization feature on many shots which did cause some artifacts, but nothing too noticeable. I letterboxed the final render to give the film a more cinematic quality. I was quite pleased with the result!
