Overview

fp
World’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera

SIGMA's take on an entirely new system camera

The SIGMA fp 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.

Key Features:

  • Smallest & lightest full-frame camera
  • 24.6MP Bayer sensor
  • Electronic shutter
  • Superior options in artistic creations
  • Advanced technologies
  • L-Mount
  • Supports full-fledged filmmaking
  • Still & Cine shooting modes

The world's smallest and lightest “pocketable full-frame” camera is here.

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.

fp | fortissimo pianissimo

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.

 

Full-frame sensor

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.

 

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-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 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 use 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.

Electronic shutter for a variety of settings
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 ambience 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.

Superior options in artistic picture & video creations
Colour mode “Teal and Orange”

Colour grading is a 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 introduced in the SIGMA fp, called “Teal and Orange.”
This new colour mode is about creating 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.

 

Tone Control & Colour Mode

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 colour 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-tune of the colour mode.

It has also newly introduced "TONE" and "COLOUR" buttons for a quick access to the tone control and colour mode menus. With these enhancd 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.

 

Fill Light

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. 

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

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.
Note: The HDR shooting in the Cine mode is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.

Cinemagraph

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.
Note: The photo is for illustrative purposes only. The Cinemagraph function is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.

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.

Focus Peaking

The focus peaking function highlights the edges of the parts of a scene that are in focus in a particular colour. It is designed to help focusing the lens manually.

L-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.

Lenses specially designed for mirrorless cameras

To coincide with the announcement of the SIGMA fp, SIGMA announced three new lenses: 45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary, 35mm F1.2 DG DN | Art, and 14–24mm F2.8 DG DN | Art. Making the most of the optical and mechanical design advantages of a short flange back, each of them is a unique mirrorless lens with high performance and distinctive characteristics.

Seamless transition between Still and Cine modes

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 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.

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.


SNAP STYLE

Making the best use of the small and lightweight body of the SIGMA fp, it allows photographers to enjoy high end shooting experience in a casual way.When fitted with 45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary, the SIGMA fp weighs a total of just 637g, making it truly a "pocket-size" full-frame camera.



PORTRAIT STYLE

The hot shoe that comes with the body makes it possible to attach a clip-on flash to the SIGMA fp. Using a side grip (available separately) will further enhances a secure hold. With the face/eye priority AF feature enabled, the SIGMA fp will give photographers a great deal of freedom when shooting portraits of a moving subject.

FIELD STYLE

By making use of the dust- and splash-proof structure of the SIGMA fp and specially-designed viewfinder and other accessories, photographers will be able to concentrate on shooting in all kinds of environment, be it a sunny day or in the rain. The SIGMA fp works with 14models of L-Mount lenses. With the use of SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-21, a total of 43models of SIGMA interchangeable still lenses can be used, including those for DSLR cameras (as of July 2019). This allows photographers to build a shooting system according to their field and purposes.


STREAMING STYLE

By simply connecting it to a PC via USB, the SIGMA fp can be used as a webcam. It is capable of recording audio while shooting a video. It will bring a full-frame camera quality to live streaming.


GIMBAL STYLE

Shooting a video using a gimbal is possible.
Lightweight equipment eases strain on the photo/videographer, and cuts power consumption of gimbals.



DRONE STYLE

Aerial shooting with a drone. The lightweight body of the SIGMA fp means less power consumed by the drone, which helps keep the camera airborne for longer.


CINE STYLE

The SIGMA fp supports cinema camera-like user interfaces, which means that it can be taken straight to filmmaking settings. The small-size body translates into a smaller system as a whole, which in turn opens new possibilities for the forms of video creation that would have been difficult to achieve with bulky equipment, such as shooting in narrow space or extreme close-ups.

45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary

This prime lens refines the concept of the Contemporary line.

Compact size is realized while maintaining high image quality and is compatible with full-frame mirrorless cameras.

SIGMA Canada is pleased to introduce the new SIGMA 45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary lens. This lens was designed to achieve the perfect balance for everyday use. Designed with relatively small full-frame mirrorless cameras in mind, this standard lens pursues easy operability as a regular prime lens by balancing its easy-to-carry size and high optical performance, thereby embodying the Contemporary line’s development concept of “pursuing optimum balance," and becoming the perfect first lens in the lineup dedicated for full-frame mirrorless cameras. 

Newly developed high-performance lens series for full-frame mirrorless cameras

With mirrorless cameras emerging at an accelerated pace, expectations towards lenses suited for high-performance full-frame mirrorless cameras are growing. Unfortunately, many photographers may feel that they have little choices for mirrorless lens systems in terms of performance, size, extensive lineup, and due to the burden of having to use multiple systems. SIGMA has thus developed and proposes this new full-frame mirrorless lens series as the optimal solution to this challenge. 

Beautiful bokeh and rendering that can be enjoyed in every scene

With the SIGMA 45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary, bokeh expressions are especially featured. Spherical aberration has been controlled to ensure not only the large bokeh in the front and rear of the subject but also the rear bokeh near the area in focus create a gradient to a soft blur. This lens softens the periphery of blurred images suppressing the double-line bokeh etc. and enhances the three-dimensional impression of the subject with the smooth expressions in the foreground and the background. In addition, its minimum focusing distance of 24cm makes it possible to enjoy shooting snapshots and tabletop photos taking advantage of the angle of view. The design gives consideration to vignetting to achieve beautiful round bokeh and subdue swirly bokeh in the whole bokeh effects. While this lens produces smooth bokeh effects of which one could say as “classical expression” when the aperture is wide open, it also realizes modern sharp rendering when it is stopped down. It is reassuring to hold this lens as the regular lens for everyday use.

High-speed and highly accurate AF enabled by the stepping motor

The lens is capable of smooth, quiet and high-speed AF made possible by a stepping motor, as well as supports Face/Eye Detection AF and video AF. The design gives consideration to MF operations, and a ring of appropriate torque provides good operability.

High build quality and outstanding operability

Because this lens is intended for everyday use, particular attention has been given to build quality and operability. The bayonet hood feels comfortable when removing and attaching, and the lens barrel incorporating metal material as the main part achieves improved durability. Furthermore, thanks to the aperture ring with the right click feeling, comfortable operability during various shooting styles is ensured. 

Additional Lens Features:

  • Mount with dust- and splash-proof structure
  • Full-time manual mode
  • Available Mount Conversion Service
  • Designed to minimize flare and ghosting
  • Evaluation with SIGMA’s own MTF measuring system: A1
  • 7-blade rounded diaphragm
  • High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
  • “Made in Japan” craftsmanship
