Quick Overview:

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-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.


Fast Shooting Speed and Professional Video Capabilities

In addition to the extraordinary performance in shooting photos at a high speed of up to 25 fps in DNG, the SL2-S can perform exceptionally demanding video production tasks. Recording 4K at 10bit 4:2:2 and C4k at 10bit 4:2:2 video, combined with Leica L-Log and integrated viewing LUTs (Look Up Tables) make the compact Leica SL2-S a great alternative to more cumbersome cinema cameras.


The intuitively organized photo and video menu systems avoid constant time-consuming readjustments in sub-menus - meaning that the camera is correctly configured and ready to always shoot, even when quickly switching between photo and video modes.

A full-fledged video camera for the most discerning videographer, shooting up to 4K and C4K at 60p 10bit 4:2:2, with integrated viewing LUTs and endless filming in a robust body with efficient cooling and no worry of overheating.


A Versatile All-Around Camera with Capture One 21 Integration

Full support in Capture One 21 enables Photographers to use tethered shooting and Professional RAW image editing in every production environment


Seamless Support of an Expansive Range of Lenses

Powered by a wide range of high-performing Leica SL lenses, L-Mount Alliance lenses as well as M-lenses and the Leitz Cine lenses, highly appreciated by filmmakers, the SL2-S offers unlimited creative possibilities.
The SL2-S is supported by an expansive high-performance lens portfolio for photo and video production.

The Leica SL2-S is a premium-segment, German-engineered hybrid stills & video camera that delivers unparalleled imaging performance powered by an expansive range of high-performing Leica SL-Lenses, empowering photographers and videographers alike to manifest their visual creativity.


"The Leica SL2-S is a camera with all the newest tech in a metal body built like in the old days. It's a tool. With its 24 Megapixel sensor I get a great balance between filming and photographing, without compromising either one."
—Dominic Nahr
