Sigma has stepped into the full frame mirrorless market with the launch of Sigma Fp. Don’t get misjudged by the power of this camera by its small size, it is a beast. It supports 24.6 MP CMOS sensor with Leica L Lens Mount.
For stills, it offers a maximum resolution of 6000 x 4000 at 14 bit RAW or JPEG whereas for video, it is capable of outputting 3840 x 2160 29.97p at 4:2:2 12-Bits via an external recorder.
Due to the absence of a mechanical shutter, Sigma Fp is able to its small size and light weight. The electronic shutter available in this camera supports speed rate from 1/8000s to 30 seconds. Photographers who shoot fast action would love the continuous shooting speeds of up to 18 fps.
It supports both auto and manual focus with 49 Contrast detection Autofocus Points. There are three focus modes offered: Continuous-Servo AF (C), Manual Focus (M), Single-Servo AF (S). It doesn’t support built-in flash but you can connect an external hot shoe to work with it.
The biggest attraction of this camera is the “Director’s Viewfinder” function which simulates the look of cinema cameras such as ARRI ALEXA LF, RED MONSTRO 8K, etc. Not only that, this function will also allow the ability to mimic the perspective of anamorphic lenses.
A single slot is available for SD/SDHC/SDXC (UHS-II) memory card. For external recording, USB Type-C(3.0) Port is available so you can directly record to an external SSD. Apart from that HDMI D (micro) slot is also there to offer versatility.
Sigma Fp is expected to hit market at the end of October with a price of $1,899. It is available for preorder right now. For more details about this camera you can visit Sigma’s official website.
