Sigma Launches Worlds Smallest, Full-Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera
Sigma Corporation of America has created what they claim is the world’s smallest, lightest, full-frame mirrorless digital camera, and now it’s officially available to the public. The Sigma fp will begin shipping on Oct. 25. The camera body alone will run you $1,899, and for the camera with the Sigma 45 mm F2. DG DN Contemporary lens from authorized Sigma dealers, it’ll jump to $2,199.
The camera weighs in at just 370g and measures 112.6 × 69.9 × 45.3 mm. Despite its “pocketable” size, the Sigma fp is dust and splash proof, making it an ideal companion for extended shooting sessions in all types of environments. The camera also lacks a mechanical shutter, which eliminates the possibility of noise and shutter shock.
As far as specs go, the Sigma fp supports 4K, includes an ISO range of 100-25600, and has electronic image stabilization. Users can alternate between still and cine shooting by flipping a switch. The camera uses an L-mount, notorious for its short flange foal length, large diameter, and extreme durability.
Navigating the Sigma fp is done on the 3.2-inch touch screen, and there are very little physical controls. The camera does not have a viewfinder but it does have a quiet, electronic shutter in front of its Bayer sensor. Sigma says the digital camera supports external flash sync, microphone, headphones, and remote shutter access. Other manufacturers' lenses can also be used through the L-Mount Alliance with Leica Camera AG and Panasonic Corporation.
The Sigma fp will be on display at the 2019 PhotoPlus Expo in New York City this month at booth #837.
