Sigma Fp Digital W/45mm F2.8

The world's smallest and lightest mirrorless digital camera with a full-frame image sensor
SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of SIGMA fp, the world's smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera. 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.

It is a camera that is casual enough to take anywhere, anytime, and high-spec enough for serious still and cine shooting in the highest image quality, all in a robust and classy body. Regardless of the differences in shooting scenes and styles or genre boundaries between stills and videos, this new camera is set to expand the freedom and possibilities in image shooting and art creation further than ever before. A pocketable full-frame camera: SIGMA fp, is now available.

The environment that surrounds shooting and art creation is undergoing radical changes. In this day and age when one user may have both a high-performance interchangeable lens camera and a smartphone camera, using them flexibly according to specific purposes and settings, SIGMA stopped and questioned the inherent value of a digital camera.

As a result, 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, without conforming to manufacturers' ideas of camera-centric categories and hierarchy.

Pocketable Full-frame
Impressive portability and power

The "smallest and lightest body possible" with which one can express their creative ideas whenever they want, combined with a "full-frame sensor" that is suitable for serious occasions without compromising on image quality, and "superb build quality" that makes the camera the perfect linchpin of a high-performance lens system.

Scalable
Versatile scalability

An "open system" that allows one to pair the camera with not only SIGMA lenses but also other lenses and accessories, whether from SIGMA or other brands, using a variety of attachments, complete with "ultimate versatility and scalability" that makes the camera adaptable to any scenes.

Seamless
Full-fledged, liberating shooting functions

A "highly intuitive UI" that allows one to move between full-fledged still and video shooting modes with just one finger, making for a "seamless and truly creative tool" that goes beyond style and genre differences.

7 shooting style suggestions with the SIGMA fp

• Minimal at its basic, with maximum combination possibilities
• The concept of "having the camera to suit human needs"
• has opened up various shooting style choices
• Here we introduce 7 shooting styles with the SIGMA fp

Smallest & Lightest Full-Frame
The SIGMA fp is the world's smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera. It employs a back-illuminated 35mm full-frame Bayer sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels for high-quality images. Covered on the front and back sides with die-cast aluminum alloy for its superior robustness and thermal conductivity, the compact body of the SIGMA fp is built with a signature heat sink structure and sealing on 42 points for a dust- and splash-proof structure, making it a perfect camera to use for long hours under all types of environments. With its small body and great adaptability, the SIGMA fp enhances the joy of full-frame image quality, no matter what one's shooting settings may be.

Electronic shutter for a variety of settings
"Able to shoot whenever you want, wherever you want"-to realize this concept, the SIGMA fp incorporates a construction without a mechanical shutter for quiet shooting. This allows shooting without worrying about noise in a situation where one would have hesitated with a conventional camera because of its shutter sound. It gives no shutter shock even when shooting in quick succession at a frame rate of 18 frames/sec., eliminating even the tiniest shakes. In addition, the absence of a mechanical shutter, whose performance level can change through continuous operation, means that the SIGMA fp is a camera with improved reliability.

Superior options in artistic picture & video creations
The SIGMA fp is a frontrunner in incorporating functions that help exploring the photographic and cinematic creations. For instance, in addition to a number of different color modes, the SIGMA fp has newly introduced the "Teal and Orange" mode, inspired by the color grading technique commonly used in Hollywood films. Each mode has a slider that enables adjustment of the strength of the effects to apply, providing even greater control in one's creations.

The SIGMA fp is the first SIGMA camera to employ a tone curve adjustment function in addition to "Fill Light", a special adjustment function of SIGMA Photo Pro, and they are both available in-camera. It has also newly introduced "TONE" and "COLOR" buttons for a quick access to each of the tone control and color 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.

Advanced picture & video generating technologies
The SIGMA fp employs a number of advanced technologies for image and video generation. 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.

The Cinemagraph function, meanwhile, achieves a hybrid between still photography and video in the form of animated GIFs in which parts of a still image keep moving. With this function, the SIGMA fp is capable of creating Cinemagraphs in-camera. Note: The HDR shooting in the Cine mode and the Cinemagraph function are to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.

L-Mount
L-Mount is a mount optimized for mirrorless cameras, characterized 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 realilzes a camera system that goes beyond the boundaries between manufacturers, with unprecedented levels of scalability and possibilities.

Supports full-fledged filmmaking
For raw video data, the SIGMA fp supports 12-bit CinemaDNG external recording. With 4K UHD/24fps recording, it produces video data that can be used even in filmmaking. It also supports ALL-I recording which is optimal for editing H.264 compressed videos. For video output, it uses USB3.1 (GEN1), which allows a smooth data transmission to an external recording unit. As it also supports cinema camera-like user interfaces, the SIGMA fp is a camera that can be taken straight to video production settings.

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

Seamless transition between Still and Cine modes
Going from the Still mode to the Cine mode at the flip of a switch. Each mode comes with a specially designed operation system and displays, making it possible to concentrate on shooting in each mode, stress-free.
