  • 2 hours is the official continuous recording time stated in the Sigma fp Instruction Manual. However, we have found numerous reports where recording to external drives has gone much longer than the 2 hour limit.
  • An increase of the camera’s internal temperature may cause recording to stop before the maximum recording time is reached.
