Ronkonkoma, NY—Sigma Corporation of America is now shipping its all-new full-frame mirrorless digital camera, the Sigma fp. With dimensions of 4.4×2.8×1.8 inches, Sigma calls the fp “the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera.”
Sigma fp Key Features
The diminutive fp is equipped with a 24.6-megapixel Bayer full-frame image sensor. Purpose-built with durability in mind, its dust- and splashproof body allow for long hours in various shooting environments. Moreover, the absence of a mechanical shutter removes the potential for noise and shutter shock while increasing reliability.
In addition, the camera is capable of full-fledged video production, supporting 12-bit CinemaDNG external recording for RAW video data and 4K UHD 24fps recording. What’s more, alternating between still and cine shooting modes is possible with a flip of a switch. Each mode comes with a specially designed operation system and displays, to make it possible to concentrate on shooting in each mode stress-free.
Furthermore, the ILC uses the L-mount. The mount, developed by Leica, features a short flange focal length, large diameter as well as durability. In addition to the wide range of Sigma lenses, the fp also supports other manufacturers’ lenses through the L-Mount Alliance. Sigma, Leica Camera AG and Panasonic Corporation comprise the L-Mount Alliance. Also, with the Sigma Mount Converter MC-21, Sigma SA mount and Sigma Canon EF mount lenses work with the fp.
Sigma’s fp full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera retails for $1,899 body alone. Bundled with the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens, the camera sells for $2,100.
