The Smallest & lightest Full-Fram Mirrorless Digital Camera in the world
The Sigma fp Mirrorless Camera has the overall dimensions of 112.6×69.9×45.3mm and a weight of 422g with battery included. Making this impressive digital camera the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera. The perfect companion for casual use to enjoy full-frame quality, yet has the power for professional-level still and cine photography.
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 bodyweight light.
The Sigma fp is fully capable of taking high-resolution imagery-still and moving. The camera is 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.
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-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 the rain, sandstorms, and other challenging conditions.
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 uses 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 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 without ruining the ambiance 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.
Color mode “Teal and Orange”
Color grading is a process of altering the color 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-color grade style that has been widely used in Hollywood films has inspired a new color mode introduced in the SIGMA fp, called “Teal and Orange.”
This new color mode is about creating a high contrast between orange colors, which are found in human skin tones, and teals (cyan blue), which are their complement, for visuals that are highly vibrant and deeply dramatic.
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 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.
Tone Control & Color mode
The adjustment range, which was formerly ±2.0, has been expanded to ±5.0, making it possible to fine-tune the brightness even more.
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 color 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 color mode.
It has also newly introduced "TONE" and "COLOR" buttons for quick access to 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.
Photo & Video Advanced Technologies
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.
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 large-diameter lens with a shallow depth of field.
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 to focus the lens manually.
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 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.
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 color 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.
Still and Cine Mode
UI optimized 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 operating 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.
