SIGMA announces the SIGMA fp L
The world’s smallest and lightest* single-lens mirrorless camera with a 61MP full-frame image sensor

SIGMA is pleased to announce the launch of the SIGMA fp L, a 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; the world’s smallest and lightest pocketable full-frame camera, seamless STILL / CINE switch and excellent customizability and scalability.

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 autofokus (AF) that combines contrast- and phase-detection, and USB charging while the camera is on. A new optional external electronic viewfinder EVF-11 will be available with the camera.

The SIGMA fp L takes full advantage of high-resolution, giving the world’s smallest and lightest pocketable full-frame linup a boost. 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.

SIGMA fp development concepts and its three keys
Breaking down a manufacturer’s ideas of camera-centric hierarchies and categories, SIGMA makes a point of questioning what the genuine value of a camera is. What is essential to photographers? How can we make a camera that not merely meets the need, but makes your life more fulfilling and fun? By asking these questions, SIGMA has brought the SIGMA fp into life. Endlessly flexible and adaptable, a user-oriented camera for people who know what they want to shoot and what they want to create—Making a camera such as this a reality relies on three key concepts that represent the SIGMA fp series identity.

• Pocketable Full-frame
Small in size, big on quality. Perfect for carrying anywhere.
The SIGMA fp: world's smallest and lightest* full-frame mirrorless camera you can take with you anytime, anywhere.
*As of March 2021, by SIGMA

Scalable
From vintage lenses to modern gadgets, up to professional movie setup. Creating your own style has never been so easy.
Customize your fp just the way you want it, to suit what you want to do.

Seamless
Capturing your best moment. Photo or video? The choice is yours.
Change shooting modes with just a flip of a switch. Capture the moment whether it's video or stills, beyond the boundaries of style or genre.

The new fp L makes the fp a family of two
The fp, the series' concept model, is now joined by the fp L that takes full advantage of high-resolution, giving the world's smallest and lightest "pocketable full-frame" lineup a boost.

Key features of the fp L
Features newly available on the SIGMA fp L

61 megapixels. The highest resolution presented by SIGMA.
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.

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.

Crop Zoom
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.

Hybrid Autofocus
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.

Accessories and new features common for the fp series
Accessories and new features that will become available* on both the SIGMA fp L and the SIGMA fp

External Electronic Viewfinder
An attachment you've been waiting for.

An external electronic viewfinder EVF-11 (optional) designed exclusively for use with the SIGMA fp series. With its 0.5 inch, approx. 3.68 M dots OLED panel, this high-resolution, high-luminance viewfinder will make you feel immersed in your photography experience more thoroughly than ever.

Save / Load Settings are easier than ever
Share your work? Share your world.

With the fp L, you can now save a custom camera setting. Saved settings can be kept as QR code image data, so you can load many patterns of settings very quickly. This allows for a new, fun way for users to share custom settings they recommend with one another by exchanging QR codes with other users or sharing them on social media.

Powder Blue & Duotone.
New colors. New adventures.

Powder Blue is a color mode with a bright and clear feel, featuring a refreshing blue color, while Duotone turns the colors of an image into a striking two-color gradient. With the addition of these two new modes to SIGMA's ample choice of color modes originally featured on the fp series, there are now a total of 15 color modes to choose from. It is sure to bring a greater range and freedom to your still and video image creation with the fp series.
