SIGMA fp Firmware Update V2.01 – External Recording workflow Improved | CineD


SIGMA fp camera just received a free firmware update version 2.01 which irons out some bugs related to working with a Panasonic LUMIX S 20-60mm wide angle lens, Blackmagic Video Assist 12G recorder, and Atomos Ninja V recorder.

It is not that long ago when one of the smallest full-frame mirrorless cameras on the market – SIGMA fp – received a large firmware update version 2.0. This update unlocked the external RAW recording option over HDMI, Dual ISO, and some other improvements. More information on the update v2.0 can be found in this article.

Now SIGMA released another small firmware update (version 2.01) which irons out some bugs. Let’s take a short look at the new firmware update.

SIGMA fp Firmware Update Version 2.01

The firmware update is available for download now free of charge. The update file itself as well as the manual on how to upgrade can be found on SIGMA Support Webpage. It fixes the following bugs:

  • Corrected the phenomenon of displaying white corners on DNGs or CinemaDNGs in some development software when using the following combination – SIGMA fp and Panasonic LUMIX S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6 lens with the Lens Optics Correction function Vignetting setting set to “auto” (focal length 20mm and aperture value of f/3.5.).

  • Corrected the bug related to Blackmagic RAW codec recording over HDMI with the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G recorder by Blackmagic Design. Please note, that this also requires a new 3.2.3 firmware update for the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G to be installed.

This free firmware update for both 5” and 7″ 12G Video Assist recorders improves the workflow when recording Blackmagic RAW from the SIGMA fp. It adds support for 100 and 119.88 fps, improves color temperature, and fixes trigger recording. It can be downloaded from the Blackmagic Design Support Center.
