Sigma Announces the fp, the World's Smallest Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera

Sigma has revealed when the camera will be available or how much it's going to cost, so we'll have to wait a bit for that. It also records 4K video. 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. So far, the company has used Foveon sensors, and this is the first camera with a Bayer. The company's still working on the new sensor, so this camera will probably be announced next year. This gives it the form-factor of a point-and-shoot camera, with the capability of professional-grade camera as it has full support for things like 12-bit Cinema DNG external recording. It's capable of shooting 4K 24fps 12bit CinemaDNG. It had previously been announced that an L-mount camera was coming, but the specifications are largely a surprise. Some of them include a waveform display, zebras, shutter angle control, and timecode. There's even a heat sink between the LCD and camera body, despite the camera's tiny size.

Father of Celtics rookie Waters found dead in motel
He's been with the Celtics for the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and played in Thursday's game against Memphis. Authorities are investigating the untimely death and it is considered to be an active case.

The new L-mount body measures 112.6 millimeters (4.43 inches) x 69.9 millimeters (2.75 inches) x 45.3 millimeters (1.78 inches) and weighs only 370 grams (13.05 ounces) without a battery and memory card (422 grams / 14.89 ounces with a battery and card). It's also weather-sealed and lets you shoot in all sorts of weather conditions. The fp relies completely on the electronic shutter, which Sigma says will give users quieter shooting experience without any worry of lag or shutter shock, which can be an issue with mechanical shutters. The burst mode can handle up to 18 fps. It features an ISO range of 100-25600, and a 49-point contrast detect focus system with support for Face and Eye-Detect, as well as subject tracking. It's expandable, and in this case, it goes from ISO 6 to ISO 102,400. Pricing will be key and unfortunately, we don't know what Sigma has in mind just yet. That's pretty light, but of course, you'll need to attach a lens to the fp in order to actually snap pictures and shoot video with it. In the meantime, check out more details on Sigma's website, and take a look at more photos below.
