Leica has announced the SL2-S, its third full-frame L-mount camera. Designed for stills and video, Leica SL2-S features a new 24mp BSI CMOS sensor, and 4K CINE video recording. Here is an additional coverage of the new Leica SL2-S camera including reviews, samples and hands-on videos.
Camerasize posted the size comparison between the Leica SL2 vs Leica SL2-S cameras. Leica also released “Henri” Cinematographer’s viewfinder for pairing the new SL2-S with PL, LPL lenses. Leica SL2-S initial review can be found at Dpreview. Of course as usual they have posted What you need to know about the Leica SL2-S and sample photos.
From Engadget :
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.
From The Verge :
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.
