Portable, flexible, and seamless. These are three words that describe Sigma fp.
Through a beautiful concept video, Japanese camera manufacturer Sigma introduces Sigma fp, the world’s smallest and lightest ‘pocketable full-frame’ camera. Don’t let the tiny body fool you though, because in this case, size definitely doesn’t matter.
The Sigma fp, unlike other cameras, isn’t bound by the parts built into its body. Introducing modular capabilities, you can do just about anything with the right components added to it, giving a new meaning to the phrase imagination is your only limit.
In the 2-minute video, the camera, bare as it can be, is transformed through the use of different lenses and equipment — showing how versatile it can be. People from different walks of life flash through the screen, coming and going with the different equipment they use for their own respective projects. All of this happens to the tune of an original composition by Cornelius, also known as the Japanese multi-instrumentalist Keigo Oyamada. The amount of modifications that you can add to a Sigma fp is as innumerable as the beats in the song.
According to Sigma, the Sigma fp enhances the joy of full-frame image quality, no matter what one’s shooting settings may be. Despite being light in weight and compact in size, there are numerous possibilities to explore. No longer should you be restrained by the camera you buy.
