Back in 2019, Sigma unveiled a 24.6-megapixel full-frame mirrorless camera claimed to be the world’s smallest and lightest. Now the imaging company has turned the fp into a series with the addition of the fp L, which packs a 61-MP full-frame sensor into the same body dimensions as its older sibling.

“The Sigma fp is one of the most innovative cameras available today, and the new fp L brings even more to the table,” said Sigma America’s Mark Amir-Hamzeh. “It offers incredibly high resolution in an extremely small body, compatibility with an extensive library of lenses, limitless customizability, and the rock-solid build quality that professionals have come to expect from Sigma.”

The fp L’s compact aluminum body measures 112.6 x 69.9 x 45.3 mm (4.43 x 2.75 x 1.78 in) and has been sealed against dust and splashes. All in, the camera tips the scales at a slightly heavier 375 g (13.2 oz) compares to the still available fp.

There’s a lot to like here, but the headline feature is undoubtedly the back-illuminated 61-MP Bayer image sensor, which makes use of a low-pass filter to help keep moire and color artifacts to a minimum. Standard light sensitivity is reported to be ISO100 to 25,600, which can extend down to ISO6 and up to 102,400, and the camera is capable of 10 frames per second continuous shooting.
