The SIGMA fp incorporates a 35mm full-frame Bayer sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels in a compact body, and boasts great versatility and scalability that allows mixing-and-matching of a variety of interchangeable lenses and accessories.
With overall dimensions of 112.6×69.9×45.3mm and a body weight of 422g, battery included, the SIGMA fp is the world's smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera*. Small enough to take along for casual use, it is a perfect camera with which to enjoy full-frame quality images in everyday snaps. * At the time of writing, – July 2019.
Equipped with a back-illuminated 35mm full-frame Bayer sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels, the SIGMA fp is capable of taking high-resolution stills and videos.
Robust & lightweight 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.
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.
Dust- & splash-resistant structure
The SIGMA fp is protected with the dust and splash-resistant sealing on a total of 42 points over the camera body.
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 a fast response without missing the perfect shot. These types of shooting will have 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 the 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 that is being introduced in the SIGMA fp, called “Teal and Orange.” This new colour mode is creates 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.
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 the 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.
Advanced picture & video generating technologies
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 the same time, 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.
The 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.
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 telephoto lens with a shallow depth of field.
The SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-21 is a converter that enables the use of CANON EF mount interchangeable lenses on L-Mount cameras. Use of the MC-21 increases the compatibility and broadens the choice lenses, thus greatly enhancing the scalability of the L-Mount system.
Supports fully-fledged filmmaking
Accessories and compatibility
In addition to genuine accessories designed exclusively for the SIGMA fp, the camera supports cinema camera-like user interfaces – see video above. 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 DSLR camera that supports external recording in 12-bit Cinema DNG 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, making light data available for recording and editing.
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.
Seamless transition between Still and Cine modes
UI optimised for different shooting modes
Preserving the distinctive “feel” 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.
