Whether videographers, photographers, or both, we're always on the look out for a hidden gem. Has this camera flown mostly under the radar?
Sigma, while a staple in the lens industry, aren't well known for their cameras. They do have an interesting line-up with DSLRs, a mirrorless, and a couple of niche bodies, but one of those mirrorless bodies — geared more for videographers — might be severely underappreciated. That camera is the Sigma fp.
While it can shoot stills, there's no doubt about it, this is a videographer's camera. This incredibly lightweight body with L lens mount has a full frame 24.6MP sensor, 49-point AF system, and shoots UHD 4K 30p video with 12-Bit CinemaDNG. The latter of those points puts this little camera in a league of its own. As Spenser Sakurai points out in this video, shooting 4K in 12-Bit raw is usually reserved for cameras with a financial entry point of 4-5x the price of the Sigma.
