Sigma has announced the Sigma fp; a compact full-frame L-mount mirrorless camera. It will have a 24.6MP BSI-CMOS sensor that uses a traditional Bayer color filter. The autofocus system is contrast-detect, which Sigma claims can focus down to -5EV.
Sigma fp is incredibly compact, especially by current L-mount standards, with dimensions of just 113 x 70 x 45mm and a weight of 370 grams. The body is weather-sealed and has a fixed 3.2″, 2.1M-dot touchscreen and a decent amount of controls considering the size of the camera. The body has HDMI, flash sync, microphone, USB 3.1 sockets, and a port that handles a remote shutter release and an external mic.
The camera has an ISO range of 100-25600, expandable to 6-102400. It has a fully electronic shutter and supports Eye AF and HDR. It can capture 14-bit DNG files and is fully compatible with Sigma’s Photo Pro software. Its burst rate is an impressive 18 fps, though that’s for only 12 shots.
Sigma fp will be available this fall. Sigma has also teased a forthcoming Foveon model, but has not released any further details as yet, other than it will have 20 million pixels per layer.
