Overview

SL2-S
Two worlds. One choice.

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.

  • Robust & Dust- and spraywater resistant
  • Made in Germany

Control & Handling
Designed with creatives, for creatives

A unique user interface, separated by photo and video functions, simple and intuitive to allow the photographer to focus on picture taking – developed through feedbacks of customers and professional photographers/videographers worldwide.

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 renowned and loved for. The best ergonomics, highest quality materials and state of the art technology are combined into 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 will deliver years of photographic use and sustainability guaranteed by consistent firmware updates.

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 feature is the camera’s unlimited video recording time, which means that the video length is only limited by the SD card or external memory capacity.

4K Video
Future-proof 4K Video with HEVC

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 minimize the risk of data loss. Other upcoming features such as automatic Follow Focus, an integrated waveform monitor, Colour-Bars, Timecode Input and Tally Mode further enhance the camera’s suitability for professional applications.

EyeRes® viewfinder
Perfect control in every situation

The EyeRes® EVF combines an outstanding 5.76MP display panel with an eyepiece made of the finest metal and glass and the tightest mechanical and optical tolerances in order to offer an unsurpassed viewing experience and the most efficient image composition possible.

24MP CMOS-BSI Sensor
The latest generation full frame sensor

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

Maestro III Prozessor
Fast working speed

The exceptional working speed of the Leica SL2-S is thanks to the Maestro III processor in combination with the large 4 GB buffer memory. Continuous bursts with up to 25 DNG images per second are possible as well as almost endless shooting in JPEG format, limited only by the memory cards used in both UHS-II-compatible SD card slots.

Leica Object Detection AF
Fast and reliable focussing

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.

Leica FOTOS
Seamless, instant, everywhere

Leica FOTOS connects your camera seamlessly to your smartphone or iPad via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth®. The app enables you to transfer images, control your Leica camera remotely, as well as view, edit and share your pictures in several formats.
