Sigma fp L Mirrorless Digital Camera & EVF-11 Electronic Viewfinder Officially Announced

Sigma has just officially announced the new Sigma fp L and EVF-11 Electronic Viewfinder. Sigma fp L is an ultra-compact full-frame mirrorless digital camera, featuring a 61 Megapixel sensor, hybrid autofocus system, attachable (optional) EVF and fully electronic shutter. It can shoot bursts as fast as 10 fps and offers an Auto HDR mode for both stills and videos. Sigma fp L can record 12-bit Cinema DNG video to an external recorder, as well as UHD 4K/30p internally. This new camera cost $2,499, with EVF-11 for $2,999, first available for pre-order at B&H/ Adorama.

SIGMA announces the “SIGMA fp L,” the world’s smallest and lightest single-lens mirrorless camera with an approx 61MP full-frame image sensor

“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. And thanks to this 61MP image sensor, the SIGMA fp L boasts outstanding resolving power, while remaining true to the SIGMA fp development concepts, namely 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 autofocus (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’s introduction. 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.

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.

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 moire 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.
