The Sigma fp mirrorless camera offers high-quality photo and video features in an extremely compact body that weighs less than half a kilo. Powered by a 24.6MP BSI Bayer CMOS sensor, 14-bit color depth, electronic image stabilization and Leica’s L-mount lens interface, the fp and its all-electronic shutter offer a maximum raw and JPEG resolution of 6,000 x 4,000 and a shooting rate of 18 frames per second, while its focus system employs contrast detection and a 49-point AF rangefinder selection mode, as well as face detection, eye detection and focus peaking.

The base sensitivity of ISO 100-25600 can be expanded to ISO 6-102400, and video recording capabilities allow UHD 4K recording at up to 30p, while Full HD recording can be captured at up to 120p. For raw video, external 12-bit CinemaDNG recording is supported.For raw video, external 12-bit CinemaDNG recording is supported. To help photographers fine-tune their video content, Sigma has developed the “Teal and Orange” mode, inspired by Hollywood color grading techniques, which creates high contrast between orange tones found in human skin tones and blue-green tones (cyan blue) that are their counterparts.

Also available is the “Director’s Viewfinder” function, which allows simulating of different angles of view and how an image looks in a cinema camera. It supports cameras such as the ARRI ALEXA LF and RED MONSTRO 8K, as well as other commonly-used digital cameras, film cameras, and anamorphic lenses.
