If you’re a camera buff, you know full well the name Sigma — it’s the company that makes some of the best lenses in existence. Now, it’s launching the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera, the Sigma fp.
The device is a “pocketable full-frame” shooter just 4.43 x 2.75 x 1.78 inches. This despite it having a massive 24.6-megapixel 35mm full-frame sensor. You still have to tack on lenses the Sigma fp, though. This can be awkward given how bulky some full-frame lenses are and how tiny this is. It might take some time getting used to.
The Sigma fp supports an ISO range of 100 to 25,600, offers a 49-point autofocus system, and boasts electronic image stabilization. It can also shoot videos in full 4K quality. Fans of the mechanical shutter might get disappointed with the electronic shutter here, but that should make shooting a lot quieter.
It’s the first camera to use Leica’s L-mount lens standard, for which three lenses were also announced by Sigma. You can use a handful of other Canon and Sigma lenses, of course, though you’ll need to have an adapter handy.
Despite its overall minute profile, the Sigma fp still boasts a bunch of ports and options. There’s a 3.2-inch touchscreen, SD card slot, and an HDMI port, for starters. You’ll also find support for flash sync, a microphone port, an external headphone port, and one for a remote shutter. There’s no electronic viewfinder, though.
The Sigma fp launches this fall. The company has yet to announce a price.
