LEICA SL2-S

Two worlds. One choice.

Following the footsteps of the Leica SL2, the new Leica SL2-S enables photographers and videographers to achieve the legendary Leica look in a fast and capable camera without compromise.

Combining a new 24MP CMOS-BSI 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.


"The great thing about the SL2-S is that it's like two cameras in one." - Bernhard Spöttel




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.


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, Color-Bars, Timecode Input and Tally Mode further enhance the camera’s suitability for professional applications.

*Available with Firmware Update Spring 2021


EyeRes® Viewfinder
Perfect control in every situation


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


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 color 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 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.


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.

The Essentials:

  • New Autofocus algorithm for improved eye/face/head/body recognition and focus tracking
  • Internal 10 Bit 4K/60p & 50p with HEVC video compression (h.265)
  • Long-GOP recording for 10 Bit codecs with 150 – 200 MB/s (same Image Quality as All-Intra, less than half of data volume)
  • Segmented Video (1 minute segments to avoid data loss)
  • Individual Viewing-LUT upload function
  • Enhanced Live View for better low light image composition control
  • Image Overlay. Allows alignment of the camera position on basis of a previous taken image, that is displayed
    in a transparent mode in the EVF or on the LCD.
  • Automatic Follow Focus operation
  • Wave form monitor for professional exposure control
  • Color bar with audio signal as reference for correct color grading and sound control in postproduction
  • Time Code input
  • Tally Mode

Choose a Leica SL2 or Leica SL2-S together with the new Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH. for photos and videos in legendary image quality. This is the ultimate bundle for discovering your potential.
