Why Shoot BRAW? DNG RAW vs BRAW from the Sigma fp
2

The Sigma fp can shoot BRAW externally or DNG RAW internally. What is the point of shooting BRAW, which needs an external recorder? This video was shot in BRAW and DNG RAW using the same settings.

In particular:

The BM Video Assist 12G was used to record BRAW from the Sigma fp via HDMI. The highest quality setting for BRAW was used (constant quality). DNG RAW was recorded to an SSD attached by USB-C cable to the Sigma fp.

The settings for both: ISO 3200 (native), F8.0, Auto WB, 4K 30p.

Canon EF 50mm f1.8 in Full Frame and Crop Mode. In Resolve, the input gamma and gamut was set to BlackMagic Film Generation 4 for both.

The shots do look different, and the BRAW files are smaller, but is there any improvement from BRAW, or is there actually some loss?
