How the World’s Smallest Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera is Made


Back in July, Sigma announced the fp, the world’s smallest full-frame mirrorless camera. With the camera on store shelves now, Johnnie Behiri of cinema5D took a trip to Japan and got a behind-the-scenes look at the fp production line in Sigma’s Aizu factory.

“I only had very little time to document the full assembly line, but I guess the footage still brings a rather clear picture regarding the precision of assembly and quality control,” Behiri writes. “I also wanted to document the final stage of packaging, but at the point in time of filming this, that part of the production line has been held back due to waiting for the final camera firmware update to arrive.”

The Sigma fp is a 24MP full-frame mirrorless camera featuring 4K/30fps video, 12-bit Cinema DNG, electronic image stabilization, a full-time electronic shutter, face/eye-detection AF, and more. It has a price tag of $1,899.
