Leica Camera AG debuted a high-end mirrorless system camera, Leica SL, featuring a 24 MP full-frame CMOS sensor and compatibility with nearly all Leica lenses ever made.
The Leica SL features an “EyeRes” viewfinder and touchscreen display. Developed especially for the Leica SL, this electronic viewfinder has 4.4-million-pixel resolution and a magnification reminiscent of a medium-format camera, according to Leica. The Leica SL also features a 2.95-inch back-panel display with a viewing angle of up to 170-degrees, enabling reliable viewing of pictures and efficient touchscreen menu navigation.
The Leica SL enables the production of professional videos in 4K resolution, says Leica, with video recording in UHD at 30 frames per second or even in Cine4K at 24 frames per second. In full HD, the Leica SL records video at up to 120 frames per second and makes use of the entire sensor area. Videos can be output in 4:2:2 10-bit format in 4K resolution over HDMI 1.4.
