LEICA BP-SCL4 LITHIUM-ION BATTERY Q2/SL/SL2
With its 47-megapixel sensor, it combines unparalleled quality with intuitive control—for photo- and videography free from distraction and full of delight. This set combines the professional camera with the compact prime lens Leica Summicron-SL 35 f/2 ASPH. opening up a wide range of applications: from landscape, street and reportage to close-up photography. Weighing only 370 grams, this lens is an excellent choice for many applications. Thanks to the fast and silent focusing it is also perfectly suited for high-end videography.
The SL2’s full-frame CMOS sensor features 47.3 megapixels (almost double of the original SL) and was designed to minimise stray light by using only two glass surfaces: an RGB filter and a UV/IR filter. This design enables the maximum amount of light to reach the sensor, contributing to the SL2’s incredible image performance in all lighting conditions.
With an improved sensor, the new SL2 needed to be fitted with an upgraded processor. The new Maestro III processor is just that. Specifically developed for the specifications of the SL2, this processor was made to capture fast-moving subjects and can do so at a consecutive exposure rate of up to 20 frames per second.
A brand-new addition to the SL2 is the new multi-axis in-body stabiliser, which allows you use slower shutter speeds and longer lenses without the use of a tripod. This adds to the SL2’s perfect portability, a key advantage unmatched by photography and cinematography equipment of this calibre.
The SL2 is the first complete mirrorless system made to fully cater to both photography and videography professionals. A completely redesigned user interface menu allows you to switch between photo and video modes, giving instant access to only the relevant settings. All settings within video mode are video-specific, essentially making the SL2 two entirely separate cameras combined in a single body. Furthermore, Cine Mode allows you to change the exposure terminology to that used in the cinematography industry (ie: F-Stops turn to T-Stops, ISO to ASA).
The SL2 has the ability to shoot video in 4k resolution at 60 fps using the full sensor size, making it comparable to top-of-the-line cinema equipment and allowing you to screen footage at maximum resolution even on the biggest movie screens. At 30 fps, the SL2 is even capable of 5k resolution at a 4:3 ratio.
Both card slots of the SL2 are now UHS-II compatible. This enables 4K at 30fps in 10bit (4:2:2) to be recorded directly to the internal memory cards, without the need for an external recorder. This makes the SL2 particularly versatile when shooting on-location and on the go. In-built headphone and mic jacks are complemented by a fully-fledged HDMI connector should an external monitor be required, no adapter necessary.
A significant milestone in technological advancement is brought to light in the SL2’s new autofocus. Set up with 225 autofocus metering fields and state-of-the-art face and body detection, getting a razor-sharp image of moving subjects has never been easier. Additionally to the classic AFc and AFs, the SL2’s iAF mode can be deployed to independently decide which AF mode best matches your needs.
There are now four fully customisable autofocus profiles. The Wildlife profile, for instance, caters to unpredictable movements and will automatically lower the autofocus’ depth-sensitivity responsiveness to account for subjects becoming obscured by their natural habitat.
In addition to the newly separated menus for still and moving images, the SL2 features a completely redesigned menu interference which has been streamlined to three buttons to the rear (a design users of other Leica systems will be familiar with), and a further five fully customisable buttons to easily access your favourite functions.
The rear LCD monitor is 3.5 inches and has 2.1 megapixels. Gorilla glass makes the display resistant to fingerprints and scratches while allowing full touch controls for menu navigation and autofocusing.
The top and bottom plates of the SL2 are made of a single plate of machine-cut aluminium while the body is made of die-cast magnesium, putting longevity and durability at the heart of the design. The original SL’s leatherette has been used to cover the full extent of the body, improving the camera’s grip. A finger-recess on the front of the grip further enhances the camera’s ease of holding, additionally supported by a body that is lighter than its predecessor.
Sealed with an official IP54 rating, the SL2 can withstand water spray from all directions and can be used in extreme weather conditions of -10 to +40 degrees Celsius.
