Sigma announces FP: The world’s first truly pocketable Full Frame camera


posted Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 5:18 AM EDT


It was bound to happen sooner or later.... a truly pocketable Full Frame mirrorless camera would come along to shock our senses and wow our imaginations. Today in Tokyo, Japan, Sigma has finally announced the existence of just such a small wonder. The Sigma FP is a Full Frame 24mp ILC that is absolutely tiny.

Sony of course wowed the camera world with their RX1 line more than 5 years ago, and so a small Full Frame camera is nothing new, but that line is fixed lens and therefore a much more niche product offering. The FP looks more like a sensor with a body to house it, and of course sports the new L-mount from their alliance with Leica and Panasonic, and will thus boast compatibility with an array of terrific lenses.
