SIGMA FP DIGITAL CAMERA
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.
* As of July, 2019 by SIGMA
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.
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.
Dust- & splash-resistant structure
The SIGMA fp is protected with the dust- and splash-resistant sealing on a total of 42 points over the camera body. When combined with a dust- and splash-resistant 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.
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
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 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.
It can be used in both the Still mode and Cine mode.
Advanced picture & video generating 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.
Note: The HDR shooting in the Cine mode is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.
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 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.
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 focusing the lens manually.
L-Mount* is a 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.

Supports full-fledged filmmaking
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 DSLR 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 feature of playing CinemaDNG footages in-camera is to become via firmware update scheduled at a later date.
* The CinemaDNG logo is either a registered trademark or trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated in the United States and/or other countries.
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 filmcameras and anamorphic lenses as well.
Cinema cameras supported:
- ARRICAM/ARRIFLEX, ALEXA LF/ALEXA Mini LF, ALEXA SXT, ALEXA Mini, AMIRA, ALEXA 65, ALEXA XT
- MONSTRO 8K, HELIUM 8K, DRAGON 6K, EPIC MX 5K, GEMINI 5K
Note: The feature of recording/playing video with the director’s viewfinder function enabled is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.
Seamless transition between Still and Cine 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.
