Deconstruction of digital camera.-the starting point and journey of SIGMA fp

SIGMA has been questioning the genuine value of a digital camera
and how can we break down manufacturer’s ideas of camera-centric hierarchies and categories.

Deconstruction is our answer after rethinking what is essential to the users. We believe a camera should be more than a tool for fulfilling rational needs of photography making, but enriching life as your inspiration.
Therefore, “how can SIGMA be the one to make this happen?”

As the answer to this question, SIGMA set itself to develop a user-oriented digital camera that reflected the idea of “how a camera can be” in a more flexible and true-to-life manner.

A camera that keeps the heart of
photography.

As a result, the SIGMA fp is the new form of camera that lets creativity get in.
Because SIGMA believes keeping the essence is the key to genuinely realize the idea of giving freedom back to you.

fp’s promises

Pocketable Full-frame

Small in size, big on quality. Perfect for carrying anywhere.

As a camera that keeps the very essence of photography, the SIGMA fp is the world's smallest and lightest* full-frame mirrorless camera.
You can take it with you anytime, anywhere—this will build a new relationship between you and a full-frame camera.

fp L.Makes the leaps

preview

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 color, 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 color gradients due to the unique nature of the X3 sensor. Furthermore, for its image quality that are in principle free of color 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.

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

Crop Zoom

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 cropped 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.

Never miss your moment.

Hybrid Autofocus
Contrast detection autofocus + Phase detection autofocus

In addition to high-precision contrast AF, the SIGMA fp L features fast image area 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.

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.

    Full-time electronic shutter

    Shutter shock, sound, and lags: these are disadvantages of mechanical shutters. The SIGMA fp series is designed to minimize them in pursuit of a system to adapt to a variety of different shooting scenes. Shooting that requires precision where even the tiniest shake is to be eliminated; shooting in a sound-sensitive situation; shooting without ruining the ambience of the scene; and shooting with good response without missing the perfect shot. These types of shooting will open new horizons in video creation. Furthermore, the absence of a mechanical shutter makes the SIGMA fp's camera structure simpler, which in turn improves its reliability as a camera.
