When Sigma launched the fp in 2019, it was touted as the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera. But technology moves at breakneck speed and, for 2021 Sigma is releasing the fp L, which has the same 4.4” x 2.8” x 1.8” body as the original fp but packs in more than double the resolution.
Like the fp, the Sigma fp L is a full-frame mirrorless camera with a back-illuminated Bayer sensor. But while the fp’s sensor was good for 24.6 megapixels, the fp L has a whopping 61 MP. That’s not just more than twice what the already-impressive fp debuted with two years ago, it’s also the highest-resolution camera that Sigma has ever produced. In addition to the huge jump in resolution, the fp L is also introducing some other innovations. There’s the added ability to run continuously on USB-C power, a new intelligent hybrid AF system that uses both contrast-detection and phase-detection, as well as the Crop Zoom function for both hi-res stills and HD video that allows you to crop an image 5X to simulate a longer focal length. It’s a lot more tech in a still-small package, and the Sigma fp L is available for preorder now for $2,499.
