The Sigma fp is one of, if not the absolute smallest full-frame mirrorless digital camera in existence. With 4K video and 24-megapixel stills and at just 432 grams with the battery, this is a camera that bats far above its weight.
When Blackmagic released the Pocket Cinema Camera, it was, well, pocketable. Then came the 4K and now, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, which, well, isn't exactly pocketable. Sigma saw this gap in the market, for a cheap B-camera you can throw anywhere that is tiny and packs a big punch.
In this review from Only-Antonis, he shows off everything from battery life (which is surprisingly great) to video samples. I won't spoil the whole review, but the specs are impressive. With 4K at 30 fps, and 12-bit 4:2:2 to record with an external recorder like the Atomos Ninja V. If you drop the resolution down to 1080p, you can get up to 120 fps, which is great.
Now, this is not just a video camera, but also a stills camera, able to photograph at 24 megapixels and up to 18 frames per second, able to take any L-mount lens from Sigma, Leica, or Panasonic (or whoever decides to make L-mount lenses), there is already a small but powerful range of glass for this camera, and with the small flange distance, it will be easy to adapt any vintage or cinema glass to the camera. At just $1,899, the camera is priced to change the game, directly targeting the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, which is over $600 more.
