Abstract: Light-cone sum rules are used to investigate the electromagnetic form factorsof the $\Lambda$ and $\Sigma$ baryons by using the Ioffe type interpolatingcurrents. The sum rules are affected to some extent by the choice of theinterpolating currents from a comparison. Numerical calculations show that themagnetic form factor can be well fitted by the dipole formula for $\Sigma$ butnot for $\Lambda$. The magnetic form factor of $\Lambda$ approaches zero withthe momentum transfer faster than the dipole formula estimation.
