Sigma EVF-11: High-resolution clip-on viewfinder for fp cameras


With the EVF-11, Sigma has an optional electronic viewfinder for its brand new, also extremely small «Sigma fp L» (see message) and the previous «Sigma fp», the small mirrorless system cameras with sensors in full-size format and L lens connection announced with a high-resolution OLED screen that is plugged into the side.

The Sigma EVF-11 Electronic Viewfinder – here mounted on the new Sigma fp L is a long-awaited electronic viewfinder for the fp camera series.

Sigma’s EVF-11 is an external electronic viewfinder (Electronic ViewFinder) that was designed for use with the extremely compact full-frame cameras of the “Sigma fp” series. With its 0.5-inch OLED display with approx. 3.68 million pixels, this high-resolution viewfinder with high luminance gives users the feeling of immersing themselves even deeper into their subject and makes photography a more pleasant experience.

Sigma’s attention to detail is evident in the folding mechanism of the EVF-11, in the expandability with external accessories and in the extremely functional user interface, which ensures practical and comfortable operation. Together with the Sigma LVF-11, which is already available, the market launch of the Sigma EVF-11 now gives you the option of choosing between two external viewfinders as specially designed accessories. Since the Sigma fp series remains true to its concept of “the world’s smallest and lightest plug-in full-frame camera”, you can now choose a viewfinder that suits your individual photography needs.

Notes: The EVF-11 receives its operating power from the camera. The EVF-11 and the screw-on hot shoe HU-11 (Hot Shoe Unit) cannot be attached to the camera together.

Main features of the Sigma EVF-11

Large viewfinder: The EVF-11 has a 0.5 inch OLED display with a resolution of approx. 3.68 million pixels. With a magnification of 0.83 times, this high-resolution, high-luminance EVF offers excellent brilliance and is particularly useful in an environment where it is difficult to see the rear screen clearly. The viewfinder can – like the LCD on the back – not only be used to determine a section of the image, but also to check recordings and to make settings in the camera menu.

Foldable: The upper part of the EVF-11 with the viewfinder eyepiece can be folded up by up to 90 ° and makes it possible to take photos more comfortably from a low perspective.

High comfort of use: The position of the exit pupil of the EVF-11 is approx. 21mm and promises a complete field of view without dark vignette around the viewfinder. This allows the photographer to see the entire scene with extraordinary brilliance, even when wearing glasses. The viewfinder offers a large diopter adjustment range from −4.0 to +3.0 dpt and is supplied with two eyecups in different sizes for every need. The EVF was designed for brilliance, ease of use and high comfort.

Audio review of video recordings: The 3.5mm stereo jack socket on the EVF-11 allows users to monitor the audio output with headphones while recording video. The socket is positioned so that the microphone input of the camera is not blocked, so that the external microphone can be used and the sound can be monitored at the same time.

External recording to a portable SSD: Via a special USB type C socket on the side of the EVF-11, users can connect an external SSD storage device and record recordings. (Note: The camera cannot be powered or charged via this USB port on the EVF-11.)

Sigma LVF-11: LCD viewfinder magnifier

Up to now, Sigma only had the LCD viewfinder loupe LVF-11 in its range for its fp camera series, which bears a similar name. This viewfinder magnifier is attached to a plate on the floor of an fp camera so that the viewfinder magnifier fits exactly on the LCD monitor and shields the ambient light. With its 2.5x magnification, the viewfinder allows users to precisely check the sharpness and composition of their recordings. The specially designed high-performance lens and the modern lens coating of this viewfinder guarantee a clear view. The viewfinder magnifier offers a diopter adjustment range from −2 to +1 dpt. The scope of delivery includes the Sigma base plate BPL-11 and the eyecup EC-31.

Price and availability

The new electronic viewfinder Sigma EVF-11 for the two cameras of the fp series will be available from April 2021. Its price (RRP) is 875 francs. The viewfinder is also available together with the new mirrorless full-frame camera Sigma fp L as a kit for 4095 francs.
