Last Night, Sigma unveiled its first full-frame mirrorless camera along with three lenses, called the Sigma fp. The company claims that the Sigma fp is “world’s smallest & lightest” full-frame mirrorless camera.At the event, the company also said that the fp is “pocketable full-frame” with 112.6 x 69.9 x 45.3 mm (4.43 x 2.75 x 1.78 inches) body dimensions. It weighs 370g without the battery and SD card and 422g with the battery and SD card inside. Meanwhile, the Panasonic S1 weighs 1021g with battery and SD card, the Sony A7 weighs 650g and Canon EOS RP tips the scales at 485g.
The pocketable full-frame Sigma fp camera comes with a 24.6-megapixel with 35mm full-frame BSI-CMOS sensor. Sigma is known for its foveon sensors, but this time the company used a traditional Bayer sensor.
