I recently purchased Sigma FP and Western Digital P50 SSD 2tb. I was planning on recording video to an external SSD and the Sigma FP has this kind of support.

When a disk is connected, the camera does not offer anything, the disk does not show any signs of power supply, the camera does not see the disk in the settings and does not allow formatting.

Separately, both the disk and the camera work perfectly with the computer through their bundled cables.

I also tried using several different cables, and formatted the external SSD in both NTFS and exFAT.

Thus, in the official list of accessories for Sigma FP, this external drive is not listed and in practice it turns out that it is not compatible.

I do not recommend buying Western Digital P50 SSD to work with Sigma FP.

Aleksei,

Thanks for the advice.

It would be wise always to check compatibility before purchasing anything.
