Sigma Product Highlights at PhotoPlus Expo 2019
From fast and sharp primes to workhorse zooms, Sigma has the perfect lens solution for every photographer’s needs. In addition to the latest Sigma imaging innovations, attendees will be able to see the entire Sigma lens lineup on the stand. Featured products on display will include:
Sigma fp – The Smallest and Lightest Full-Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera
With dimensions of 112.6×69.9×45.3mm and body weight of 370g, the all-new Sigma fp is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera; it is equipped with a 24.6 megapixel Bayer full-frame sensor. Suitable for everyday use by photographers of all skill levels, from novices to the most discerning professionals, the Sigma fp produces images that are of the highest quality, capable of supporting both serious still and cine shooting. Purpose-built with durability in mind, its dust and splash-proof body make it ideal for long hours in various shooting environments while the absence of a mechanical shutter removes the potential for noise and shutter shock while increasing reliability. The Sigma fp is capable of full-fledged video production, supporting 12-bit CinemaDNG external recording for RAW video data and 4K UHD/24fps recording. Alternating between still and cine shooting modes is possible with a simple flip of a switch. The Sigma fp uses the L-mount, characterized by a short flange focal length, large diameter, and superior durability. More details are available at: https://www.sigmaphoto.com/
