We are pleased to announce that SIGMA Corporation (CEO: Kazuto Yamaki) has released firmware Ver. 2.00 for the SIGMA fp, a full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera.

Since its launch in October 2019, users have been able to explore their individual ways of imaging expression. The positive reactions received from users enjoying both still and cine digital imaging perfectly reflects the core concept of the SIGMA fp―”Seamless & Scalable” This SIGMA fp major firmware update is released with the aim of meeting our customers’ needs in order to enhance the convenience and provide further possibilities of imaging expression. This firmware update includes functions that had been planned but were not available at the fp’s launch, and are in addition to the benefits announced in March 2020 (Firmware update schedule for the SIGMA fp).

SIGMA is committed to continuing our development effort to improve the functionality of the SIGMA fp and ensure a superior experience to our valued users.
