The fp L is a highly adaptable camera that can be used stripped down for day-to-day shooting, weighing only 427g, or accessories can be bolted on as and when they’re needed, including a hotshoe (included) or an all-new EVF (available separately). Professional film-makers can easily build the fp into a full rig when required.
fp series bodies are the smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless cameras on the market. The fp L specifically also boasts the joint-highest resolution of any full-frame mirrorless model. Having such incredible power inside such a tiny body opens up new creative possibilities that are simply not possible with other cameras.
The fp L boasts a highly intuitive interface with a simple, ergonomic button layout and easy-to-navigate menu, so it’s quick easy to access the most important shooting settings. On the top plate of the camera it’s possible to change seamless from stills to video with a flick of a switch.
61MP back-illuminated full-frame Bayer sensor
SIGMA’s extensive experience of developing image processing technology from its work on its Foveon sensors, the fp L is able to offer superb image quality that displays exceptionally fine detail and beautifully rendered colours. Thanks to the sensor’s very high resolution – the highest ever on a SIGMA camera – the decision was taken to add a low-pass filter, which makes a further contribution to optical performance by reducing the effects of moiré.
The 61MP resolution offers stunning image quality and makes it possible for photographers to capture scenes unlike almost any other camera full-frame. This allows for large format printing and heavy crops.
Crop Zoom functionality
The 61MP sensor means that users can crop in to an image and still have more than enough resolution for their needs. For this reason SIGMA has introduced a new Crop Zoom feature to the fp L that works in both the STILLS and CINE modes, allowing users to digitally zoom into their image as they shoot. This means the focal length of lenses can be effectively increased if the need arises. For video, the fp L can record in full HD quality, even at its maximum 5x zoom, without downgrading the image quality. Crop Zoom is intuitive to use too; it’s possible to simply pinch and zoom on the LCD touch screen. This feature makes the camera a much more flexible tool, especially if shooting with a limited number of prime lenses.
As a stills camera, the fp L might will particularly to photographers who need to be able to work on-location without being weighed down by their kit, such as landscapers and street photographers. When combined with the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary, for example, the smallest and lightest constant F2.8 standard zoom for full-frame mirrorless cameras (correct as of April 2021), the whole set-up weighs less than 900g.
New to the fp L is a Save/Load Settings function, which allows photographers to save a particular camera set-up and save the settings as a QR code. This can then be shared with another user who can quickly load this set-up onto their fp L. Stills shooters will also benefit from the camera’s hybrid AF, 15 Color Modes, Crop Zoom functionality and new electronic EVF, available separately.
Professional cine use
The camera’s powerful video specs and professional functionality is extremely impressive, especially in such a small body. Stripped down it’s ideal for filming in tight spaces or attaching to a small electronic gimbal, but as the fp L has a modular design it can also easily be built up into a large rig for serious productions.
The camera can shoot up to 12-bit 4K UHD RAW to an SSD, or 8-bit 4K UHD RAW internally. It supports 3 RAW file formats. and frame rates commonly used in film-making. Hybrid AF means faster and more accurate autofocus.
Also worth considering is that being L-Mount, it can be used with the 24 native stills lenses in the SIGMA range, or with any Canon EF lens using the MC-21 converter. It can also be used with PL\PL-i or EF-mount cine lenses in SIGMA’s range using the MC-21 or MC-31 converters, so there is a wide range of SIGMA glass available. It’s also possible to use any Leica lens or full-frame Panasonic lens natively as they also use L-Mount.
