Sigma fp introduction

Well we didn't see that one coming! Sigma has just announced the 'fp,' the world's smallest full-frame camera and, despite owning the sensor design company Foveon, it's built around a conventional Bayer sensor.

But, more than just being small, it's one of the most radical cameras we've seen released in years, incorporating an array of new ideas and video capabilities. We're at the launch event in Tokyo, where we've had a chance to use one.

The camera we handled is running fairly early firmware (v0.02) so it's too early to talk about performance, but it's immediately apparent Sigma's engineers have put a lot of work into making the fp a camera that's as practical as it is innovative.
