Sigma Price Increases Announced Overseas


Sigma announced price increases to multiple lenses overseas.

Thank you for your patronage of Sigma products.

Starting Wednesday, May 29, 2024, we will be revising the shipping prices of some of our mirrorless camera lenses.

We have decided to implement this revision in light of the recent external environment, which has led to rising raw material costs, manufacturing and logistics costs, etc.

Scheduled date: Wednesday, May 29, 2024.
Please see below for a list of eligible products.

Thank you kindly look forward for your understanding.

Fujifilm joins the Content Authenticity Initiative


Membership in C2PA and CAI and efforts to develop a system to provide context and history for digital media
In recent years, it has become an important global objective to work to rebuild trust online by proving the authenticity of photographs, videos and other online content. To further this effort and enable creative and business activities to continue to flourish, Fujifilm has joined two organizations, the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA) and the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI). Fujifilm is collaborating with these organizations in their efforts to ensure that the originator of digital content can be verified online through Content Credentials.[9] Through its association with C2PA and CAI, Fujifilm will assist efforts to develop a system to provide context and history of digital content by providing valuable information, such as the origin and record of content, to the digital file. Fujifilm is committed to ultimately applying this verification solution to its GFX and X series line-up.
