The SIGMA fp L is the newest new member of the SIGMA fp series of the world's smallest and lightest* full-frame digital single-lens mirrorless cameras, equipped with a full-frame Bayer sensor with approximately 61 effective megapixels. Thanks to this 61MP image sensor, the SIGMA fp L boasts outstanding resolving power, while remaining true to the SIGMA fp development concepts, namely the "world's smallest and lightest pocketable full-frame camera,” With an excellent crop zoom that capitalizes on its ample megapixels, it offers users levels of image quality and creative range that are only possible with an ultra-high pixel camera. It also comes with an array of new features and accessories, which will make shooting more user friendly, including hybrid autofocus (AF) that combines contrast- and phase-detection, and USB charging while the camera is on.
The most significant update for the fp L camera is the use of a higher-resolution 61MP full-frame BSI CMOS Bayer array sensor. The increased resolution offers improved detail while maintaining impressive dynamic range and a flexible sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600. The sensor enables UHD 4K video recording up to 30 fps or FHD at 120 fps, and internal 8-bit Cinema DNG recording is possible. If recording externally, then 12-bit sampling is possible, along with the ability to record directly to SSDs via the USB Type-C port. The heightened 61MP resolution benefits video, too, because it promotes sharp footage through down-sampling; an optical low pass filter helps to cut moiré for both stills and video.
The new sensor also now features on-chip phase-detection autofocus, in addition to contrast-detection focusing, which allows for faster, more precise focusing performance and subject tracking in various lighting conditions. Other assets from the updated sensor include a new Crop Zoom function, for cropping into images while shooting to simulate working at higher magnifications; Duotone and Powder Blue color modes; true 24.00 fps recording for a cinematic look; and improvements to the Director's Viewfinder function, which includes new compatible cinema cameras and customizable frame lines.
Beyond the sensor updates, the Sigma fp L also introduces a series of usability improvements, including the ability to receive continuous power via USB-C, such as for time-lapse shooting, long recording takes, or even if using the fp L as a webcam. If working in multiple camera scenarios, customized features can now be shared between cameras via unique QR codes, and you can also take screenshots of the fp L's own LCD screen for notetaking purposes.
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.
The SIGMA fp L features 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. Furthermore, for its image quality that are in principle free of color artifacts, the Foveon sensor legacy was also behind the decision that the fp L should have a low-pass filter to reduce moiré to minimum levels. The use of a low-pass filter was a choice that made sense for a camera with an ample megapixels such as the SIGMA fp L.
Higher resolution. Greater freedom. Every shot is your dream shot.
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 crop 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.
Never miss your moment.
In addition to high-precision contrast AF, the SIGMA fp L features fast image plane 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.
Unlimited power supply
Long hours of worry-free USB-C cable power supply
The SIGMA fp L supports USB charging while the camera is on. You can shoot without interruption while charging the camera using a mobile battery, even outdoors or where you have no access to a power outlet. When using it as a webcam, just connect the fp L to a PC via USB and it works as an audio and video input device while getting its power supply from the PC. This means that you can use it for long hours without having to worry about the battery dying on you.
35mm full size effective approx. 61 megapixels Bayer sensor
Image quality and creative range that is only possible with a full-frame camera. The fp L boasts outstanding resolving power thanks to its image sensor with approximately 61 effective megapixels. It also features an excellent cropped zoom that capitalizes on its ample megapixels.
Supports 3 RAW file formats
The SIGMA fp series supports CinemaDNG external recording, as well as Blackmagic RAW and ProRes RAW output to external screen recorder over HDMI. So you can choose a RAW file format according to your project workflow.
Supports camera control with a gimbal
With cooperation of a gimbal manufacturer, the fp series supports camera control with a gimbal. The excellent mobility of a compact camera system that takes advantage of a small and lightweight SIGMA fp camera will be perfect for gimbal shooting in a variety of settings.
Supports different frame rates*
Supports different frame rates that are commonly used in filmmaking. The addition of true 24p, will further expand the range of projects you can cover with the fp series. Combined with DCI 4K recording with external output, it can be optimized to digital cinema formats.
Optional External Electronic Viewfinder EVF-11
A new optional external electronic viewfinder EVF-11 will be available with the camera's introduction. With the new SIGMA fp L, SIGMA presents you another option in the fp series, which offers a joy of taking pictures with just the features that you truly need - nothing more, nothing less.
