Sigma launches fp L 61MP full-frame camera
Sigma has announced a 61 Megapixel high-resolution version of its full-frame fp camera, called the fp L.
As well as the new sensor, the fp L gets a new hybrid autofocus system, an optional electronic viewfinder that screws onto the side of the camera, 24p video capture and support for USB Power Delivery.
Physiacally, the fp L is pretty much unchanged over its predecessor, and remains the smallest full frame camera on the market at 113 x 70 x 45mm, weighing in at just 427g with battery and memory card installed.
Beyond the sensor, which is almost certainly the same as that in the Sony A7R IV, the most interesting new addition is the bolt-on electronic viewfinder, which has 3.68 million dots and can be tilted upwards.
That said, the video specs have seen a small boost, with the fp L capable of capturing UHD 4K 30p video internally and outputing 12-bit Cinema DNG Raw to an external SSD.
No local pricing for the Sigma fp L was made available to us, but local retailer DigiDirect is currently accepting pre-orders for the body and EVF attachment for $3,649, and the body only for $3,049. While you save your pennies, you can read more about the new camera at Sigma.
