I will not feed the troll...I will not feed the troll...I will not feed the troll.why does everything about this seem like it's april fools and at the same time, like come on canon, what you gonna do next to make you seem even more behind in the FF mirrorless game
I'll have to undergo surgery, in order to get my hands reduced in size.
In earnest: I hate tiny cameras, ergonomics are often sacrificed for smaller size (Sony...)
It seems like from the video, there will be a number of attachable accessories like grips, monitors, viewfinders(?), etc. Kind of a modular design for a variety of production purposes.I agree, I really don't understand what the selling point of such a tiny, fiddly camera is meant to be. You won't have a decent grip on it to stabilise a lens and then you'll also have to hold it a few inches away from your face to see the screen, adding more shake. This is not a P&S with a dinky plastic lens, this is a full-frame that will be attached to lenses weighing > 300g
Sigma, make something at least the size of the EOS R and with an EVF and I'll give you money.

Is it actually a DSLR?"SIGMA fp is the first DSLR camera that supports external recording in 12-bit CinemaDNG format. "
This is incredible! =)
Like all things, different products for different purposes. Too many people view products through the lens of their own needs and biases. That multiplied by an overinflated ego or self-importance, and an anonymous message board, make for some pretty ignorant comments don't they?When Canon makes a tiny little camera with limited functionality and a recycled sensor it's a marketing masterstroke. When Sigma makes an even smaller camera that could be the core of a higly competitive and technologically advanced video rig it's "too small for my big manly western hands". Too funny.
What an ignorant comment.But for real, what an ignorant comment..... for me I grab my pelican 1510 from my studio that's the size of a Tokyo flat at 1/10 the cost and roll it into my car or truck and drive to a shoot.
Someone in that Tokyo flat who doesn’t have a car, maybe walks, bikes, takes public transit and wants a variety of modular options to bring with to a shoot is one of many target consumers. Versatility and functionality trumps ergonomics for SOME people.
Someone who wants to travel even lighter and takes a tripod and doesn’t need flash? Great, don’t need a beefy grip, viewfinder, or a hotshoe. Someone who mainly does video work and never uses those the features either?....great! Now they can pack much lighter and minimize their gear and workflow. Hopefully the price will also be inline and save money on unneeded features for those in that market as well.
Use your imagination not your crappy jokes. Population densities and cultural norms play a big role in lifestyle and marketing products.
