The Leica SL2 Digital Camera truly demonstrates Leica's mastery of camera construction. Evidently building off from its predecessor and taking inspiration from the long line of past successful Leica cameras, the SL2 exhibits a range of new features which elevate the ease-of-use as well as overall image quality. The SL2 features an updated and more powerful 47.3MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor, paired with Leica's Maestro III Image Processor which together offer unparalleled detail in every image and video captured. A notable addition to the SL2 is the 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation which not only provides super-smooth and stable image capture but also offers a 187MP Multishot feature. The SL2 is also capable of capturing stunning 5K/DCI 4K Video footage with HLG & 10-Bit Recording. The Leica SL2 digital camera is in a league of its own, firmly standing up to the Leica name.

Expanded Leica SL2 Digital Camera Body Key Features:

A Match Made In Heaven

The Leica SL2 features a huge range of features and technology that truly elevate this camera to industry-leading camera standard. The centre of this camera revolves around its full-frame 47.3MP CMOS sensor and Maestro III image processor. It's this pairing (plus Leica's next-level optics) that provide unparalleled image quality. The sensor and processor duo provides a wide 14-stop dynamic range and an impressive ISO sensitivity range from 50-50,000 of which, noise-interference has been significantly suppressed. The sensor also excludes a low-pass filter which helps to maintain an impressively high margin of resolution and clarity. Finally, the processor's capabilities offer fast full-resolution continuous shooting of up to 20 frames per second with the electronic shutter and up to 10 with the mechanical shutter.

AutoFocus Performance

Leica is well known for its incredible autofocus systems and they weren't going to stop with the SL2. In fact, they've provided an enhanced autofocus focus performance with their Object Detection AF system. This system works incredibly quickly to calculate the distance from your subject and camera, and will automatically adjust the focus position with sensor and lens communication which occurs at up to 480 fps. This type of contrast-detection autofocus lends itself to both the SL2's still and video modes, and the subject tracking thanks to a body-detection mode. In addition to this, the SL2 has 225 selectable autofocus areas for complete control of what you want the camera to focus on.

Leica Video

Another new addition to the Leica SL2 is its video capabilities. The SL2 offers up to 5K (4992 x 3744) recording with 10-bit colour, and DCI, UHD 4K and Full HD options. As well as this, the SL2 offers high-speed recording for UHD 4K60 with 30 fps playback, and Full HD 180 fps with 30 fps playback, offering 2x and 6x slower motion, respectively. To accompany this incredible video quality the SL2 features a dedicated Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) Photo Style mode as well as L-Log gamma profile, both of which offer more flexibly when you're colour grading in post. Also, you can make use of the HDMI Type A port and record to an external recorder and use the dedicate 3.5mm jacks for external microphones and headphones.

The Long-Awaited IBIS

A feature that has been wanted amongst many Leica users is IBIS - In-body Image Stabilisation. This is where Leica and Panasonic share technology. The SL2 adopts the very same, extremely powerful and impressive 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation found in the likes of high-end Panasonic mirrorless cameras. This industry-leading technology offers tack-sharp handheld precision with the use of a 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation compensation system. This can be utilised in both stills and video work and will further emphasise the incredible quality of the lenses that you will be using with this camera body.

To further utilise this sensor-shift stabilisation tech, you can make use of the SL2's multi-shot mode. This mode captures and puts together eight separate images to create a single and compile eight separate exposures to create a single 187MP raw or JPEG file. You can use this mode to create incredibly detailed images with an ultra-high colour accuracy; way higher and more detailed than any single image could capture.


To view the stunning images and videos that the SL2 can capture, you need an advanced EVF and LCD screen, both for capturing and reviewing your images. The SL2 features a truly incredible EyeRes Electronic ViewFinder (EVF) with a high-resolution 5.76m-dot OLED. This offers a 0.78x configurable viewing magnification with a smooth 120 fps refresh rate, 0.005 sec lag, and 10,000:1 contrast ratio. Once you've looked through this EVF, all others will pale in comparison.

When it comes to the rear LCD, the SL2 features a large 3.2" 2.1m-dot touchscreen LCD which is bright and clear which is perfect for live-view but also for playback video/images and navigating the menu system. It's also made from Gorilla Glass for added durability and scratch/crack resistance. As well as this rear LCD, there's also a 1.28" top status LCD which is designed for quick settings checks, and this presents those same settings even when the camera is powered off.

Designed for Convenience

The SL2 body has been designed with you in mind. It is equipped with dual UHS-II compatible SD card slots which offer flexible storage options, allowing for large cards and for segregating file types, saving duplicates or doubling your storage space for overflow recording. The decision to use SD UHS-II cards means that they can switch between cameras e.g. for an A and a B camera setup. Power-wise, the SL2 uses a Leica BP-SCL4 rechargeable lithium-ion battery which will provide up to approximately 370 shots per charge.

The body has been upgraded with an improved weather sealing rating of IPX54, offering splash, dust and freeze resistance. The shell is made from a magnesium-alloy for added durability and features other design features which add to its durability such as a magnet-driven top dial.

Adding to its versatility and convenience to you, the user, the SL2 has a built-in Wi-Fi function that can be used in conjunction with Leica's FOTOS app for Android and iOS devices. This allows for easy and instant sharing of your images directly to a linked device as well as offering remote control and a live view of what your camera sees. As well as Wi-Fi, the SL2 has a secure and stable Bluetooth LE connectivity, too.
