No sir, this is not your typical tourist-friendly point-and-shoot camera. Japanese photography company Sigma has recently introduced the Sigma FP, and this tiny shooter is actually full-frame camera designed for both photography and videography. Because why not?
Sigma’s latest is equipped with a 35mm full-frame 24.6MP Bayer sensor that fits in the palm of your hand and weighs approximately at 370g. While the company is marketing the FP as “pocketable”, they’re not entirely wrong… when there are no lenses attached to it.
The Sigma FP uses an L-Mount that supports a wide range of lenses from Sigma themselves, Leica, and even Panasonic. With a zoom lens attached to the FP, I think it’s safe to confirm that there’s no way it could now fit in your comfy blue jeans anymore. But hey, it’s the thought that counts, and you could still pocket the FP and just store your lenses in a backpack.
The camera can shoot 14-bit DNG Raw format, features an ISO range of 100-25600, and a 49-point autofocus system, just to name a few. Video-wise, it can capture 12-bit CinemaDNG Raw footage at 4K to an external recorder via USB Type-C.
Sigma has not announced when the FP will be released and how much it will cost, but an announcement is expected in fall of 2019.
