The Small Cinema Camera That Packs a Punch Now Has a Price and Release Date

The Sigma fp will cost $1899 for the camera body, and you can pre-order yours starting today.

The main question about the Sigma fp on everyone’s mind for the past three months has been finally been answered.

Pre-order For The $1899 Sigma fp NOW

Back in July, we were given a ton of info about this unique little device, except for the price. 

We know it will cost $1899 for the camera body or $2,199 to include the 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens.

 

 

Sigma has also announced that the fp will begin shipping in 15 days, on October 25th. Get your pre-orders in ASAP if you want this little monster in your hands at release. 

The fp is not only the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera but has also been billed as both a still and cine camera, with specs to back up those claims. The top of the camera even features a switch to allow you to easily change between the two modes, with dedicated UI for each.

 


Among our personal favorite features are the two 1/4”-20 screws used to attach camera straps, which can be easily removed and used as additional mounting points. Combined with how small and lightweight the body is, this will allow for all sorts of creative rigging possibilities, while still outputting up to 4K 12-bit CinemaDNG for external raw video recording. Internal record modes aren’t lacking either, take a look at the chart below for current record capabilities to see for yourself:

 


Sigma has designed a ton of different accessories to build out your rig with, from an LCD viewfinder to two different hand grips for anyone who finds handheld shooting with such small cameras difficult.

The fp features a native L-mount, which was developed in conjunction with Leica and Panasonic, so expect a wide variety of lenses to be available. Thanks to its short flange depth, Sigma also produces both a Canon EF (MC-21) and PL adapter (MC-31), so your creative possibilities are endless.

If you happen to find yourself in New York City during the PhotoPlus Expo (happening October 24-26th), you can see the Sigma fp in person at the Sigma booth #837.

Yeah, this camera would be such a bore for all your "content creation"

Smallest and lightest full-frame but won’t be after people are finished rigging it to a useable state. It seems like they’re marketing it towards enthusiasts and pros but why make something so small and ergonomically cumbersome when a phone looks more comfortable to handle? It’s neat that Sigma did it and it’s definitely unique but I have a feeling it’s better on paper than in practice. It’s definitely impressive how many features they crammed in its tiny body though.

I agree for the most part, although it could make a good B camera if you need something small for some special tight/light circumstances.

I like the idea of this camera. Does it record 1080 120fps with the full sensor?
