The Sigma FP Digital Camera with AF 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Lens Kit packs high-end specs for both sills and video in an extremely compact body. Sporting a full-frame 24MP BSI Bayer CMOS sensor, 14-bit colour depth in DNG format (stills) and electronic image stabilisation, the fp and its fully electronic shutter provide a maximum resolution for raw and JPEG files of 6000 x 4000 and a shooting rate of 18 fps, while its focus system employs contrast detection and a 49-point selection mode for AF measurement distance, as well as face detection, eye detection, and focus peaking.
A base sensitivity of ISO 100-25600 can be expanded to ISO 6-102400, and its video recording capabilities allow for UHD 4K recording at up to 25p, while Full HD recording can be captured at up to 100p. For raw video data, 12-bit CinemaDNG external recording is supported.
Sigma 2.0 Firmware brings new capabilities to the Sigma FP. In combination with the Atomos Ninja V (purchased seperately) the fp will record Apple ProRes RAW at up to DCI 4Kp24 or UHD 4Kp30 directly from the camera’s full-frame sensor. It will also be the world’s first mirrorless camera to record RAW over HDMI video in HD at 120fps.
The Ninja V can also record 422 ProRes and DNx video up to 4kp29.94 and 120p119.88 from the standard 8-bit HDMI output of the Sigma fp.
NOTE: ProRes RAW recording requires the free SIGMA V2.00 firmware update for the fp available today, and a free AtomOS update for Ninja V which will be available in Summer 2020.
Aside from professional cinema cameras, the SIGMA fp is the first interchangeable-lens mirrorless type digital camera that supports external recording in 12-bit CinemaDNG format. With up to 4K UHD/25fps 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 will be available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.
In the Cine mode, the SIGMA fp supports time code recording, which is useful in video editing. It offers either “Free Run” or “Rec Run,” and also switch between “Drop frame (DF)” and “Non-drop frame (NDF),” which allows the camera to send time code via HDMI output.
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, including not only the latest large format cameras such as ARRI ALEXA LF and RED MONSTRO 8K but also film-based cameras and anamorphic lenses.
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.Supported Cinema cameras:
Preserving the distinctive “feel” of SIGMA cameras' dials and QS (Quick Set) buttons, the SIGMA fp has a specially designed operating system and displays for each of the Still and Cine modes. At the flick of a 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.
The focus peaking function highlights the edges of the parts of the scene that are in focus in colour (of the choice from among 4 colours). It quickly identifies which parts of the subject are in focus.
The SIGMA fp also sports a zebra pattern display, which shows areas of the image that are of specified brightness levels in stripes. This helps to check for overblown highlights and adjust exposure accordingly.
The SIGMA fp can display the shutter speed in shutter angle format, a feature commonly found on professional cinema cameras. Another professional monitoring feature found in the Sigma fp is the inclusion of a waveform display for visualising the exposure of a scene in a numerical manner based on the signal information.
One color 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 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.
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.
* The camera menu setting for connecting to UVC devices is to become available via firmware update scheduled at a later date.
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 SIGMA fp employs high-precision contrast AF, available in three modes: Single AF, Continuous AF, and Manual Focus. There are 49 AF points to choose from, as well as Free Movement mode, and tracking AF modes.
The SIGMA fp employs a full-time electronic shutter, enabling to shoot virtually without sound, and no camera shake due to shutter shock. Even when shooting in quick succession at a frame rate of 18 frames/sec., it eliminates the tiniest of shakes.
Furthermore, the absence of a mechanical shutter makes the SIGMA fp's camera structure simpler, which in turn improves its reliability as a camera.
The SIGMA fp detects and controls image flickering, a phenomenon that can occur when shooting with artificial light sources.
The SIGMA fp is capable of taking pictures at shutter speeds of up to 1/8,000 sec.
The Sigma fp incorporates an electronic image stabilization (EIS) function. By taking advantage of the electronic shutter, it is capable of instantaneously taking three frames, comparing them, and creating a composite image into a still image or video with minimum blur.
This camera has an automatic bracketing function with settings for ±3 EV.
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 will be available via firmware update at a later date.
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.
The 3.15-inch (3:2) liquid-crystal display is complete with a touch screen, for intuitive operation.
A body covered with die-cast aluminium on the front and the back ensures superior robustness and heat dissipation while keeping the body lightweight.
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 the rain, sandstorms, and other challenging conditions.
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 uses 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.
By using a DC connector (CN-21) (sold separately), the SIGMA fp can be powered from an AC power adaptor or a V-mount battery plate.
Designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Sigma AF 45mm f/2.8 DG DN (C) F/L-Mount pursues ease of use by balancing its easy-to-carry size and high optical performance making it an excellent choice for a regular prime lens.
The normal-length prime renders smooth bokeh with rounded out-of-focus highlights in both the foreground and background, enhancing the three-dimensional impression of an object.
Though full-time manual focus is available, this lens is equipped with a stepping motor that enables smooth, high-speed autofocusing that is notably quiet.
A rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to the smooth bokeh, and a metal lens hood is included, which can protect the front element as well as prevent stray light from causing flare.
Created for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras, this prime, normal-length lens is designed to deliver excellent image quality while optimizing size and weight. It is also suitable for APS-C models where it provides a 68mm equivalent focal length.
This lens softens the periphery of blurred images while suppressing the double-line bokeh rendition of out of focus elements. It enhances the three-dimensional impression of the subject by smooth expressions in the foreground and the background.
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.
Because this lens is intended for everyday use, particular attention has been given to build quality and feel. 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 handling during various shooting styles is ensured.
