A Review of the New Sigma fp L Mirrorless Camera

The Sigma fp L is the latest camera from the company, and it offers a unique design that also makes it the smallest full frame, high-resolution camera available. If you have been interested in the camera, check out this great video review that takes a look at how it performs in the real world. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this awesome video review takes a look at the new Sigma fp L mirrorless camera. Despite its size, the fp L comes with a variety of features, including:

  • 61-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor
  • Native ISO range of 100-25,600 with dual base ISOs
  • Electronic shutter only design for smaller size (top flash sync is 1/15 sec, however)
  • Lossless compressed 14-bit files
  • Burst rate of up to 10 fps
  • 4K video at up to 30 fps with 12-bit raw output at 24 fps over HDMI
  • 1080p at up to 120 fps 
  • Continuous power over USB-C
  • 3.15-inch, 2.1-million-dot touchscreen
  • Optional detachable EVF-11 electronic viewfinder
  • Ability to share custom settings with other bodies via QR codes
  • Three 1/4"-20 threaded mounts
  • Large heat sink for longer recording times
  • Dust- and splash-resistant design

Overall, the fp L definitely has some limitations, particularly when it comes to autofocus and flash sync speeds, but if you are looking for a top-level sensor in a compact body, it could be a worthwhile option. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on the camera.

The lack of mechanical shutter and the slow 1/10 readout speed severely limits the uses of this camera.
Architecture and landscape is pretty much all it can do. Including a shutter wouldn't have made the camera that much larger and it would be far far more capable.
