SL2-S
 

Leica has announced the new Leica SL2-S, a 24mp full-frame mirrorless camera, designed for both stills and video. The camera features a 24mp BSI CMOS sensor, unlimited 4K CINE (10-bit) video recording, and a 4GB buffer to allow for longer continuous shooting at 25fps. There's also built-in in-body image stabilisation, a multi-shot mode to allow 96mp images to be taken, and weather-sealing. The Leica SL2-S is available now, for £3795 body only.

 


 

From Leica: Following the footsteps of the Leica SL2, the new fast Leica SL2-S enables photographers and videographers to achieve the legendary Leica look without compromise. Combining a new 24MP CMOS-BIS sensor, the latest Maestro III processor, and two separate shooting modes for photo and video, the Leica SL2-S offers an unparalleled, intuitive hybrid photography experience and the best of two worlds.

 

Design - Made to inspire

The design of the Leica SL2-S recalls the iconic Leica identity and traditional design DNA elements that the brand has become world-known and loved for. Best ergonomics, highest quality materials and state of the art technology are combined to a camera that is made to perform and built to last.

 

Made in Germany - Crafted with conscience

Just like the Leica SL2, the SL2-S is developed and manufactured in Germany. With an unmatched all-metal solid construction and elegant leather wrap to withstand the time it, delivers years of photographic pleasure, thanks to the sustainability guaranteed by consistent firmware updates.

 

Control and handling - Designed with creatives, for creatives

The unique, intuitive and straightforward user interface, which features separate photo and video sections, allows you to focus entirely on taking the picture. An unparalleled experience developed through the feedback of customers and professional photographers worldwide.erience, developed through feedbacks of customers and professional photographers worldwide.

 

Cine Mode - Professional film performance

The Leica SL2-S captures 4K and Cine4K 10-bit 4:2:2 videos with Leica’s L-LOG gamma, at frame rates of up to 60 fps. Thanks to the integrated viewing LUTs, the user is able to have full control throughout the recording. Another pro-level trait is the camera’s unlimited recording time for videos, which means that the video length is only limited by the respective internal or external memory.

4K Video with HEVC* - Futureproof

The Leica SL2-S supports the highly efficient HEVC video compression standard for 10-bit recordings up to 4K/60p (h.265). 

Videos can be split into one-minute segments, in order to minimise the risk of data loss. Other enhancing features include the automatic Follow Focus, an integrated waveform monitor, Colour-Bar, Timecode Input and Tally Mode, all of which further enhance the camera’s suitability for professional use.

EyeRes® Viewfinder - Perfect control in every situation

The EyeRes® EVF unites an outstanding 5.76MP display panel with an eyepiece built of finest metal and glass and the tightest mechanical and optical tolerances, to deliver an unmatched viewing experience and allow the easy composition of images.

 

24MP CMOS-BSI Sensor - Full frame of the latest generation

The new full-frame sensor of the Leica SL2-S with 24 Megapixel and Backside Illumination produces excellent images in all lighting conditions. An enormous dynamic range, a color depth of 14 bits per RGB channel and a sensitivity of up to ISO 100,000 enable low-noise images of exceptional quality even in low light.

 

Maestro III Processor - Fast working speed

The exceptional working speed of the Leica SL2-S is achieved through the Maestro III processor and a large 4 Gigabyte buffer memory. Image series with up to 25 DNG images per second are possible, as well as almost infinite image series in JPEG format, limited only by the memory cards used in both UHS-II-compatible SD card slots.

 

Leica FOTOS - Seamless, instant, everywhere

Leica Object Detection AF - Fast and reliable focusing

The Leica Object Detection AF ensures a fast and reliable AF. In addition to an array of modes and features, including face recognition, the high-performance AF system of the SL2-S also automatically detects whether a subject is stationary or in motion, and subsequently switches between motion and focus priority.

 

In-Body Stabilization - Sensor-shift technology

An important feature for the work of many photographers is the floating suspended sensor of the Leica SL2-S. The highly efficient multi-axis image stabilization compensates camera shake fast and effective. This in-camera method even allows image stabilization for lenses that are not equipped with it themselves.

 

Multishot Mode - Images with up to 96 MP

With the help of the sensor-shift technology used in the SL2-S, the tripod-mounted camera can record up to eight consecutive frames, whereby the sensor is shifted in half-pixel increments in between every exposure. This key feature results in images with an incredible quadrupled resolution of around 96 megapixels, leading to an extreme increase in detail resolution.

 

Robust, dust and splash-proof (IP54) - Produce in every situation

The IP54 certification of the Leica SL2-S ensures an elevated weather sealing. Even under harsh production conditions, the SL2-S reliably delivers outstanding results. This allows photographers and videographers to concentrate completely on their work.

 

L-Mount - Unlimited Possibilities

Being equipped with the L-Mount makes the Leica SL2-S fully compatible with not just the SL-System’s extensive lens portfolio, but also with TL lenses and, via adapter, lenses from the Leica M, R and S-System. The L-Mount Alliance provides SL2-S owners with access to over 40 autofocus lenses. In addition, Leitz Cine lenses – which are highly coveted among film-makers across the board – can also be adapted to the Leica SL2-S.
