Deepest Pixels :: Leica SL first look

published 2 years ago by Ted Forbes

This week Leica sent me the Leica SL and the 24-90mm f/2.8-4 lens to check out. I want to share with you a few first impressions - this thing is a tank. The Leica SL is a full frame, mirrorless camera with a 24 megapixel sensor. It shoots 4k/30p video. It also features a beautifully minimal interface, joystick and a .8x magnification viewfinder. And its heavy. Very heavy. Heavy pixels. However the image quality is simply outstanding. Its a Leica and they have a long history of making some of the most beautiful lenses ever produced so I'm super excited to share this with you over the next 2 weeks. • Leica SL (Typ 601) • Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. zoom lens • 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor • Leica Maestro II Image Processor • 14-bit • Internal DCI 4k Video • L-log Gama • 11fps burst rate • 33 frame buffer depth • ISO 50-50000 • 1/250 second flash sync Music is from Epidemic Sound.
