Description

Breaking down ideas of camera-centric hierarchies and categories, SIGMA makes a point of questioning what the genuine value of a camera is. What is essential to photographers? How can we make a camera that not merely meets the need, but makes your life more fulfilling and fun? By asking these questions, SIGMA has brought the SIGMA fp to life. Endlessly flexible and adaptable, a user-oriented camera for people who know what they want to shoot and what they want to create. Making a camera such as this a reality relies on three key concepts that represent the SIGMA fp series identity.

  • Pocketable Full-Frame
    Small in size, big on quality. Perfect for carrying anywhere.
    The SIGMA fp: world’s smallest and lightest* full-frame mirrorless camera you can take with you anytime, anywhere.
  • Scalable
    From vintage lenses to modern gadgets, up to professional movie setup. Creating your own style has never been so easy.
    Customize your fp just the way you want it, to suit what you want to do.
  • Seamless
    Capturing your best moment. Photo or video? The choice is yours.
    Change shooting modes with just a flip of a switch. Capture the moment whether it’s video or stills, beyond the boundaries of style or genre.

2 | The new fp L makes the fp a family of two

The fp, the series’ concept model, is now joined by the fp L that takes full advantage of high-resolution, giving the world’s smallest and lightest “pocketable full-frame” lineup a boost.

  • fp L – A big canvas for big moments
    Back-illuminated 35mm full size effective approx. 61 megapixels Bayer sensor
    Contrast detection autofocus + Phase detection autofocus
    Supports USB power supply
  • fp – A small camera for a big freedom

3 | Key features of the fp L

Four features newly available on the SIGMA fp L

1- 61 megapixels. The highest resolution presented by SIGMA.

Leveraging our knowhow of image processing technology on Foveon sensors.
Thanks to the ultra-high resolution, SIGMA fp L is able to unleash your imagination and feature a low-pass filter to make a further contribution to the optical performance.

The SIGMA fp L features a Bayer sensor with approximately 61 effective megapixels, higher than any other SIGMA camera before it. In addition to images with fine details, the fp L is capable of creating images that are high-definition and rich in colour, thanks to its ultra-high pixel count and SIGMA’s experience in developing cameras with a Foveon sensor, are renowned for both the exceptional resolving power and nuanced colour gradients due to the unique nature of the X3 sensor. Furthermore, for its image quality that are in principle free of colour artifacts, the Foveon sensor legacy was also behind the decision that the fp L should have a low-pass filter to reduce moiré to minimum levels. The use of a low-pass filter was a choice that made sense for a camera with an ample megapixels such as the SIGMA fp L.

2- Crop Zoom

Higher resolution. Greater freedom.  Every shot is your dream shot.

A high pixel count means that images can stand extreme zooming or cropping. This was one aspect of an ultra-high pixel camera that led SIGMA to give the fp L a crop zoom feature that works in both the STILL and CINE modes. Thanks to its ample (approximately 61 effective) megapixels, the fp L can record in full HD quality even at its maximum 5x zoom; because this is accomplished simply by cropping with no digital enhancement, the image quality will not suffer. To use it in a more intuitive way, you can pinch to zoom on the LCD touch screen.

3- Hybrid Autofocus

Never miss your moment.

In addition to high-precision contrast AF, the SIGMA fp L features fast image plane phase-detection AF. This hybrid AF allows users to enjoy smooth autofocus that is high-precision, fast, and excellent at tracking a moving subject, whether they are shooting stills or video.

4- Unlimited power supply

Long hours of worry-free USB-C cable power supply.

The SIGMA fp L supports USB charging while the camera is on. You can shoot without interruption while charging the camera using a mobile battery, even outdoors or where you have no access to a power outlet. When using it as a webcam, just connect the fp L to a PC via USB and it works as an audio and video input device while getting its power supply from the PC. This means that you can use it for long hours without having to worry about the battery dying on you.
