HACK your Sigma 18-35mm FULL FRAME | Panasonic S1H + MC-21

Nate’s Film Tutorials:

The Sigma MC 21 adapter does not allow you to use the full frame sensor because it tells the camera it is an APS-C lens. I figured out a “hack” so you can use your Sigma 18-35mm on your Full Frame Panasonic S1 and S1H Camera. It even allows electronic control of aperture and autofocus, however it is not ideal because when you turn of the camera it resets to Super 35mm (APS-C) Hopefully Sigma or Panasonic can fix this issue.

First video sample shot on the upcoming S1H ProRes RAW

Shot using early versions of firmware version 2.0, “A Drummers Treasure” will tell the story of a musician and how far he will go to get the sound he is looking for in a drum. This is a teaser if a soon to be completed film by Director of Photography sheriff Mokbel. Shot with a combination of Atlas Orion Anamorphic lenses, this piece shows many scenes with tremendous dynamic range while maintaining the character often associate with Anamorphic lenses. Firmware version 2.0 for the critically acclaimed S1H unlocks features never before available in a “Mirrorless” styled camera, including the first every implementation of 12bit 5.9K RAW video delivered over HDMI. Combined with the powerful and compact Atomos Ninja V and the flexibility of Apple ProRes RAW, you have image quality ordinarily reserved for cinema cameras costing 10’s of thousands of dollars more than this potent combination. Firmware version 2.0 will be available as a free download on May 25th, 2020.
