Sigma has freshly announced their new camera, which is officially “the world’s smallest and lightest ‘pocketable full-frame’ camera.” It also records 4K video.
As well as announcing three much-anticipated lenses, the company unveiled their new L-mount Sigma fp. It had previously been announced that an L-mount camera was coming, but the specifications are largely a surprise. The camera measures just 112.6 × 69.9 × 45.3mm and weighs only 370 g (422 g with the battery and SD card inserted). The mechanical shutter was left out, helping to further reduce its overall weight.
The Sigma FP is loaded with a backlit 35mm full-frame Bayer sensor, the first time the company has ventured from Foveon sensors. It comes complete with 24.6 effective megapixels.
Being Sigma’s first camera to shoot video, it shoots up to 4K 24 fps 12-bit CinemaDNG. There’s a dedicated Cine mode which allows you to use a variety of special functions inspired by professional cinema cameras. There’s even a heat sink between the LCD and camera body, despite the camera’s tiny size.
As for still image capabilities, it features an electronic shutter, meaning quiet shooting is possible. The burst mode can handle up to 18 fps. In regards to ISO, users can expect 100 to 25,600. It’s expandable, and in this case, it goes from ISO 6 to ISO 102,400.
Finally, it also includes a 3.2-inch 2.1M-dot touchscreen, SD card slot, HDMI port, flash sync port, mic and headphone ports, USB 3.1 port, and remote shutter port.
You can expect the fp in fall of this year. Check out the video for more.
