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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Featuring 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.
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.
The Choice Is Yours. Change shooting modes with just a flip of a switch. The SIGMA fp goes back and forth seamlessly between video and stills, responding straight to how you like to shoot, going beyond the boundaries of style or genre.
