The sensor is a 24.6-megapixel full-frame Bayer sensor with contrast detection autofocus.

"SIGMA set itself to develop a user-oriented digital camera that reflected the idea of "how a camera can be" in a more flexible and true-to-life manner, without conforming to manufacturers" ideas of camera-centric categories and hierarchy", Sigma's website reads. The fp has some impressive video abilities too, with support for 12-bit Cinema DNG, 4K video up to 30fps, full-HD video recording up to 120fps, and All-Intra recording option, which records a smaller file size, making it easier to edit. The company has, however, confirmed that such a model is now in the works, one that will use a 20.3MP sensor that outputs images with a resolution similar to a 60.9MP files from other cameras. No details have been shared about the Foveon camera except that it will sport a sensor with 20MP per layer, for a total resolution of over 60MP.

Sigma has freshly announced their new camera, which is officially "the world's smallest and lightest "pocketable full-frame" camera". It's capable of shooting 4K 24fps 12bit CinemaDNG. Like all full-frame cameras, you'll still need to attach a camera lens to it, and on that note, the fp uses Leica's L-Mount. Some of them include a waveform display, zebras, shutter angle control, and timecode.

The camera's diminutive body has 42 separate seals to provide protection against inclement weather, and there's space for USB 3.1, HDMI and flash sync ports, and even a mic port.

While we're at the size, the Sigma FP is indeed really tiny. The camera measures just 112.6 × 69.9 × 45.3mm and weighs only 370 g (422 g with the battery and SD card inserted).

As for still image capabilities, it features an electronic shutter, meaning quiet shooting is possible.

The Sigma fp has an ISO range of 100-25,600, which can be expanded to 6-1,02,400.

The Sigma fp is expected to be released later this year, although no specific date or official pricetag for the camera has been mentioned at the time of writing. For now, we don't know the price, but we'll let you know as soon as it's announced.
