STILL MODE

Body / Sensor / Accessories

  • World's smallest & lightest

    With overall dimensions of 112.6×69.9×45.3mm and a body weight of 370g, the SIGMA fp is the world's smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera equipped with a full-frame sensor.

    * As of July 2019, our investigation
  • Full-frame sensor

    Employs a back-illuminated 35mm full-frame image sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels.

  • L-Mount*

    The SIGMA fp uses the L-Mount, characterized by a short flange focal length, large diameter, and superior durability.
    Thanks to the L-Mount Alliance, L-Mount lenses from Leica Camera AG and Panasonic Corporation can also be used on the SIGMA fp, realizing a camera system with great scalability.
    Furthermore, SIGMA SA mount lenses designed for previous lines of SIGMA cameras from one's lens investment on the L-Mount by applying the SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-21.

    * The L-Mount Trademark is a registered Trademark of Leica Camera AG.
  • Independent UIs

    Going instantly from the Still mode to the Cine mode at the touch of a switch. Each mode comes with a dedicated control system and screen display, making it possible to check information and displays on the screen that is necessary for specific scenes.

  • LCD screen

    The 3.15-inch (3:2) liquid-crystal display is complete with a touch screen, for intuitive operation.

  • Large heat sink

    Designed and inspired by those used on professional cinema cameras, a large-size magnesium heat sink is mounted between the LCD and camera body. This achieves highly effective heat dissipation and prevents overheating at high temperatures or in long hours of use.

  • QS button

    Camera functions that one use most often can be allocated to the Quick Set menu, complete with the QS (Quick Set) button to access the menu.

  • TONE button

    This button gives a quick access to the Tone Control menu.

  • COLOR button

    This button gives a quick access to the Color Mode menu.

  • No low-pass filter

    Because the SIGMA fp does not have a low-pass filter, it is able to capture images without losing the resolution of the sensor.

  • Dust- & splash-proof structure

    The SIGMA fp is protected with the dust- and splash-proof sealing on a total of 42 points over the camera’s body. When combined with a dust- and splash-proof lens, the SIGMA fp will be ready for shooting in any environments.

  • Aluminum body

    A body covered with die-cast aluminum on the front and the back ensures superior robustness and heat dissipation while keeping the body weight light.

  • External power supply

    By using a DC connector (CN-21) (sold separately), the SIGMA fp can be powered from an AC power adaptor or a V-mount battery plate.

  • Full-time electronic shutter

    The SIGMA fp employs a full-time electronic shutter, enabling to shoot virtually without sound, and no camera shake due to shutter shock. Even when shooting in quick succession at a frame rate of 18 frames/sec., it eliminates the tiniest of shakes. In addition, as opposed to conventional mechanical shutters, it does not cause irregularities on the screen display in a high-speed shutter setting.
    Furthermore, the absence of a mechanical shutter makes the SIGMA fp's camera structure simpler, which in turn improves its reliability as a camera.
