Sigma has been quiet lately compared to its Japanese peers who is pushing out multiple different model of the mirrorless segment, but with the latest ‘fp’ it shows huge potential on what a tiny full-frame mirrorless camera can do with the support of a modular system.
Sigma claims that fp is the world’s smallest full-frame mirrorless camera, measuring 113 x 70 x 45 mm and weighing just 370 g. The pocket size camera utilises a 24.6 megapixel back-illuminated Bayer sensor, at the same time it uses L-mount for lens attachment, meaning owners of fp can make use of their existing Leica and Panasonic lenses without a converter. The camera body is covered with die-cast aluminium on the front and the back for robustness and heat dissipation and is protected with dust- and splash-proof sealing on a total of 42 points.
Sigma fp is not only developed to support casual use but professional photo shooting and cinema-grade filming too. With the suitable mount converter the fp can be easily pair with numerous DSLR lenses and cine lenses, and the camera itself has a separate cine interface and supports 4K UHD/24fps video recording.
