Sigma’s ‘fp’ Is The World’s Smallest Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera

Jul 11, 2019

Category: Tech

In an era of outstanding megapixel counts, Sigma has been relatively levelheaded — especially when it comes to the innovation of the company’s current camera lineup. Amidst an industry-wide push toward heightened resolution, the Japanese proprietor has maintained its composure, focusing instead on the newly announced ‘fp’ — a genre-defining modular system that caters to both photographic and video-oriented consumers.

The fp boasts a minimal footprint that makes it one of, if not the most, compact photographic systems on the market. Despite its modest stature, Sigma’s miniature powerhouse still packs quite the punch, utilizing a 24.6 megapixel back-illuminated Bayer sensor and 35mm full-frame capabilities — both of which place it firmly within the realm of professional capture. To house these important additions, Sigma has implemented a durable, die-cast aluminum body with over 42 reinforced points that can stand up to dust and fluids, giving users a modular piece of equipment that can operate in harsh environments. But that’s not all; the fp is also scalable, allowing users to transition their build from a basic, photo-oriented setup, all the way to a professional, cinema-grade platform — courtesy of 4K, 12-bit CinemaDNG recording. The fp is slated for release this fall.
