    About SIGMA

    The right tools
    for unique, special moments

    SIGMA is a manufacturing company that produces and distributes digital cameras, interchangeable lenses and photographic accessories.
    Since our foundation in 1961, we have exclusively produced photography- and video-related products.
    In other words, we are a company that focuses all its efforts on creating tools for photography.

    Why does photography matter to us so much?
    Because we believe that any moment chosen to be photographed or filmed is, in some way, a special moment that carries a unique significance.
    Because we believe that being a small part of these moments, contributing our best to these moments, is the most fulfilling mission we can imagine for us.

    The right tools for special, unique moments.
    Innovative, never-before seen products and services,
    at unparalleled quality, available anywhere in the world.

    With these inexhaustible ideals as our goals,
    SIGMA continues to innovate and explore with unmatched dedication and fervor.
