Leica SL2-S camera additional coverage

Leica SL2-S camera additional coverage:

  • Leica has launched the SL2-S, a sportier and cheaper version of its flagship 47-megapixel, $5,995 mirrorless SL2 camera. With the new model, it’s emphasizing speed, low-light capability and video prowess, with a 24.6-megapixel sensor, up to 25 fps second shooting speed (with caveats), ISOs up to 100,000 and 4K 60 fps video (Engadget).

  • The SL2-S has the same body, design, build quality, LCD touchscreen, viewfinder, battery, in-body image stabilization, and autofocus system as the SL2. What’s different is its sensor: instead of the high-resolution 47.3-megapixel chip found in the SL2, the SL2-S has a brand-new, backside-illuminated 24-megapixel sensor. That lower resolution allows it to capture up to 25 frames per second with its electronic shutter (9 frames per second with the mechanical), and the backside illumination gives it a greater ISO range and better low-light performance over the SL2. It’s the first backside-illuminated sensor to be used by Leica (The Verge).

  • The main difference between the $6,000 SL2 and the new $4,900 SL2-S is that the SL2-S comes with a new backside-illuminated but lower-res 24.6-MP sensor that offers slightly faster shooting speeds of up to 25 fps (depending on settings). Weighing in at just over 2 pounds, the SL2-S is also ever-so-slightly lighter than the 2.05-pound SL2, while still sporting a very similar metal body (with a few extra rounded edges) and an IP54 rating against dust and water (Gizmodo).

  • Leica also released “Henri” Cinematographer’s viewfinder for pairing the new SL2-S with PL, LPL lenses.
