Sigma has introduced what it calls the”world’s lightest and smallest only lens mirrorless camera,” a promise that is simple to think by looking at it. The fp L isn’t just small but includes 61-megapixel full-frame sensor, which makes it among those highest-resolution full-frame models accessible alongside Sony’s A7R IV. In reality, it may share the exact same or an identical Sony detector, provided that it has the exact same resolution. Other characteristics include USB-C charging while the camera is on webcam service, along with a”harvest zoom” feature which allows you to zoom up to 5 times by cropping on the high-heeled detector — again, a feature we have only actually noticed on smartphones, not cameras.
Together with the fp L, Sigma introduced the discretionary EVF-11 viewfinder constructed for this. It provides you a 3.69-million scatter OLED viewfinder using a massive eyepiece cushion and it tilts forward or upwards by 90 degrees. It attaches to the USB-C interface but provides a USB-C pass-through if you’re using an outside SSD, but there is no SSD pass-through — so that you can not use the EVF and also an outside recorder at precisely the exact same moment. The Sigma fp L comes in mid-April for $2,499, a cost that seems really reasonable given the specs. The discretionary viewfinder will arrive at precisely the exact same time for $699. Speaking of the movie, the fp L may manage 8-bit 4K 30 fps video, or allow you to capture exactly the identical resolution in RAW into an external recorder or as 12-bit CinemaDNG documents into an SSD.
The latter is a really interesting choice, as few (if any) cameras, besides a number of Blackmagic Design’s versions, allow you to capture video straight to an external drive. You also get features like a true 24p movie (maybe not 23.97 fps), together with zebras, concentrate peaking, along with a waveform screen that will assist you to assess vulnerability. This system allows for”smooth, quick, and precise autofocus” for tracking moving subjects, both for video and photos. Additionally, it has eye-detect autofocus and topic monitoring.
