SIGMA NEWS – not so much new but a short review


The summer slump is not over yet and so there are not as many new things I could tell you about Sigma. As you already heard last week the company has released some interesting updates concerning the MC-11 adapter (which I have tested for and with you in the last weeks) but otherwise it is rather quiet as far as innovations and new releases of the camera and lens manufacturer are concerned.

You probably know that SIGMA expanded its product range almost two years ago to be better represented in the video sector. Several Cinema lenses were introduced to the market. These are designed for resolutions of 6K and 8K.

A short film was shot with the new lenses, directed by Yu Yamanaka. The short film is called “blur” and shows in a staggering way that people who are deeply moved by something are inspired to take pictures. In my opinion, every resulting picture is impressive and seems to be photographed rather than filmed in an interesting way. The result is a unique look. The short film, which has been in planning at SIGMA for two years, was shot completely with SIGMA Cine lenses.

Two years ago I already told you about the movie and showed you the link to the making-of. At that time, the real movie wasn’t open to the public. I must admit that I then forgot and only came across it again today. That’s why I want to share the film with you today. https://www.sigma-global.com/en/about/blur/

Enjoy the movie. 🙂
