Leica SL2 Mirrorless Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Leica SL2 is a Mirrorless Digital Camera with a Full-Frame sensor and a Leica L lens mount. Its 47 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 50-50000 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 50-50000. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 47 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
A builtin 5-Axis Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Leica SL2 to compensate for camera shake up to 5.5-Stops beyond hand-holding with any mounted lens.
This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/40000 to 30m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/40000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.
The Leica SL2 features a 225-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.
Dual controls-dials offer direct access to most exposure parameters which makes this digital camera suitable for advanced photographers. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. Framing on the Leica SL2 is performed via a 0.50" Built-in EVF with 5.8 Megapixels. This extra large EVF has 0.78X magnification and shows 100% coverage.
