Extremely compact, ideal for travel

With overall dimensions of 112.6×69.9×45.3mm and weight of 370g, the Sigma fp Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera is the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera equipped with a full-frame sensor. Sigma fp mirrorless employs a back-illuminated 35mm full-frame image sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels and 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. Also, the absence of a mechanical shutter makes the Sigma fp’s camera structure simpler, which in turn improves its reliability.

Full-frame sensor

The Sigma fp specifications are impressive: Equipped with a back-illuminated 35mm full-frame Bayer sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels, the SIGMA fp is capable of taking high-resolution still and moving images.


Robust & lightweight aluminium body

A body covered with die-cast aluminium on the front and the back ensures superior robustness and heat dissipation while keeping the body weight light. It truly is one of the best new compact mirrorless cameras announced in 2020.


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 body. When combined with a dust- and splash-proof lens, the SIGMA fp is capable of shooting in rain, sandstorms, and other challenging conditions.


Large heat sink

Designed and inspired by those used on professional cinema cameras, a large-size heat sink is mounted between the LCD and camera body. Combined with a heat dissipation coating applied to the outer surface, the SIGMA fp achieves highly effective heat dissipation. It prevents overheating at high temperatures or in long hours of use.


Same screw threads for strap fittings and tripod

The SIGMA fp is fitted with 1/4-inch threads for both the strap holder on either side of the body and a tripod. This provides greater freedom in how one use the camera, from mounting it on a tripod in portrait orientation with the fixing removed, to attaching a strap for use in portrait orientation after screwing the fixing into the hole on the base.


Full-time electronic shutter

Shutter shock, sound, and lags: these are disadvantages of mechanical shutters. The SIGMA fp is designed to minimise 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 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.


Superior options in artistic picture & video creations

Colour mode “Teal and Orange”

Colour grading is a process of altering the colour of a video and is an important step in filmmaking that will change the “mood” of a film or other types of work significantly. One colour grade style that has been widely used in Hollywood films has inspired a new colour mode introduced in the SIGMA fp, called “Teal and Orange.” This new colour mode is about creating high contrast between orange colours, which are found in human skin tones, and teals (cyan blue), which are their complement, for visuals that are highly vibrant and deeply dramatic. It can be used in both the Still mode and Cine mode.

  • Fill Light: A function formerly available only in SIGMA Photo Pro, SIGMA's proprietary image development software, Fill Light has now been incorporated into the body of SIGMA fp. Using Fill Light allows adjustment of the brightness of an image by adding extra light energy into the shadow regions without altering the exposure of highlight regions. This provides greater control in producing an image with great details, even with areas that are hard to control using the exposure adjustment settings. The adjustment range, which was formerly ±2.0, has been expanded to ±5.0, making it possible to fine-tune the brightness even more.
  • Tone Control & Colour Mode: The Tone Control menu now has a manual setting option in addition to the two auto options available in previous models (Strong/Mild), which allows users to adjust the tone curve by themselves. The SIGMA fp is also the first SIGMA camera to come with an "effect" slider in its colour mode menu. It can be used to set the strength of an effect to apply in 11 levels, from -5 to +5, which enables the fine-tuning of the colour mode. It has also newly introduced "TONE" and "COLOR" buttons for quick access to the tone control and colour mode menus. With these enhanced functions and a variety of operation elements, the SIGMA fp makes it simple and easy to create an image, in-camera with great details, be it still or video.


HDR shooting

The HDR shooting takes advantage of an electronic shutter to take multiple pictures of different exposures (3 frames for still photography and 2 frames for video) at once, which can then be merged into a single picture or video with a great dynamic range that could not have been achieved in normal shooting.

Note: The HDR shooting in the Cine mode is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.


Face/Eye Detection AF

The Face/Eye Detection AF function allows the SIGMA fp to focus automatically on the eyes of a human subject. It can bring the eyes of the model into focus instantly and precisely, even when shooting portraits using a large-diameter lens with a shallow depth of field.


Focus peaking

The focus peaking function highlights the edges of the parts of a scene that are in focus in a particular color. It is designed to help focusing the lens manually.


Cinemagraph

SIGMA fp comes with a feature to make "Cinemagraphs", which are animated GIFs that are a hybrid between still photography and video. With this function, the SIGMA fp is capable of creating unique imagery, where parts of a still image keep moving, in-camera.

Note: The photo is for illustrative purposes only. The Cinemagraph function is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.


Face/Eye Detection AF

The Face/Eye Detection AF function allows the SIGMA fp to focus automatically on the eyes of a human subject. It can bring the eyes of the model into focus instantly and precisely, even when shooting portraits using a large-diameter lens with a shallow depth of field.


L-Mount

L-Mount* is a mount optimised for mirrorless cameras, characterised by a short flange focal length, large diameter, and superior durability. In 2018, Leica Camera AG, Panasonic Corporation and SIGMA launched the L-Mount Alliance, and announced that the three companies were to develop their own camera systems based around the same L-Mount standard. As an L-Mount camera, the SIGMA fp can be used with various L-Mount lenses offered by Leica and Panasonic, in addition to SIGMA lenses. The L-Mount realises a camera system that goes beyond the boundaries between manufacturers, with unprecedented levels of scalability and possibilities.

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


Lenses specially designed for mirrorless cameras

To coincide with the announcement of the SIGMA fp, SIGMA announced three new lenses: 45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary, 35mm F1.2 DG DN | Art, and 14–24mm f/2.8 DG DN Art. Making the most of the optical and mechanical design advantages of a short flange back, each of them is a unique mirrorless lens with high performance and distinctive characteristics.


Optional purchase: Sigma Mount Converter MC-21

The SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-21 is a converter that enables the use of the SIGMA SA mount and SIGMA's CANON EF mount interchangeable lenses on L-Mount cameras. Use of the MC-21 increases the compatibility and broadens the choice for L-Mount cameras and lenses, thus greatly enhancing the scalability of the L-Mount system.


Supports full-fledged filmmaking

Accessories and compatibility

In addition to genuine accessories designed exclusively for the SIGMA fp, the camera supports cinema camera-like user interfaces. It has solid compatibility that makes it a perfect camera that fits right into filmmaking settings.

Supports RAW video data recording

Aside from professional cinema cameras, the SIGMA fp is the first interchangeable-lens mirrorless type digital camera that supports external recording in 12-bit CinemaDNG format. With up to 4K UHD/24fps recording, it produces video data that can be used even in filmmaking.

It also supports All-I (All-Intra) recording, which makes it possible to maintain high image quality while reducing file size, allowing light data available for recording and editing. The record format that best suits the purpose of the video can be selected.

* The feature of playing CinemaDNG footages in-camera is to become via firmware update scheduled at a later date.

* The CinemaDNG logo is either a registered trademark or trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated in the United States and/or other countries.

Director's viewfinder

The SIGMA fp has a director's viewfinder function that allows the user to simulate different angles of view and how an image looks, on cinema cameras. It supports cameras by major manufacturers commonly used in filmmaking. It supports not only the latest large format cameras such as ARRI ALEXA LF and RED MONSTRO 8K but also film cameras and anamorphic lenses as well.

Cinema cameras supported:

  • [ARRI]
  • ARRICAM/ARRIFLEX, ALEXA LF/ALEXA Mini LF, ALEXA SXT, ALEXA Mini, AMIRA, ALEXA 65, ALEXA XT
  • [SONY]
  • VENICE
  • [RED]
  • MONSTRO 8K, HELIUM 8K, DRAGON 6K, EPIC MX 5K, GEMINI 5K

Note: The feature of recording/playing video with the director's viewfinder function enabled is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.

Special functions comparable to professional cinema cameras

The SIGMA fp's Cine mode comes with a variety of special functions that are comparable to those of professional cinema cameras. From shutter angle display and waveform display for exposure and colour information, to zebra patterning, it comes with the functions and screen displays that can be used in the same way as with conventional cinema equipment.


UI optimised for different shooting modes

Preserving the distinctive “feels” of SIGMA cameras including dials and QS (Quick Set) buttons, the SIGMA fp has a specially designed operation system and displays for each of the Still mode and the Cine mode. At the flick of a special switch, it can move back and forth between the two modes. This presents a new shooting experience that goes beyond the boundaries of traditional cameras that are designed either for stills or videos.


Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for Leica L

Designed for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras, the fast and versatile Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens is a normal-length prime that optimises size as well as weight while rendering notably smooth bokeh with rounded out-of-focus highlights in both the foreground and background. Coupled with its ability to soften the periphery of blurred images while enhancing the three-dimensional impression of an object, its 24 cm minimum focusing distance makes it suitable for snapshots to tabletop photos, or any imagery where you wish to make your subject stand out.

Though the full-time manual focus is available, this lens is equipped with a stepping motor that enables smooth, high-speed autofocusing that is notably quiet whether utilising features such as Face/Eye Detection AF or during video shooting. A rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to the smooth bokeh, and a lens hood is included, which can protect the front element as well as prevent stray light from causing flare.
