Details for Leica SL3 Mirrorless Camera

Coupling a powerful 60MP full-frame BSI CMOS sensor with the Maestro IV image processor, the SL3 promises swift focusing performance and excellent image quality with 15 stops of dynamic range and 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization. Improvements to the camera body include a 3.2" 2.3m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD for dynamic viewing options while capturing imagery, a CFexpress Type B slot and SD UHS-II slot for file-saving versatility, and a reduced weight of 1.7 pounds. Also noteworthy is the SL3's hybrid autofocusing system, which integrates Phase Detection AF with Contrast Detection AF and Object Detection AF, resulting in reliable performance in a multitude of shooting scenarios. These critical improvements to the camera's hardware and body have positioned this iteration to leap ahead of its predecessors.

60MP Full-Frame BSI CMOS Sensor and Maestro IV Processor

At the front and center of the SL3's notable upgrades are its 60MP full-frame BSI CMOS sensor and Maestro IV image processor. This duo combined with 8GB of buffer memory allows for incredible capturing speeds as well as superb image quality. This is double the amount of buffer memory available in the SL2-S, which means you'll experience noticeable speed improvements for all operations, including startup time. Additionally, this improved processor provides a wide ISO sensitivity range from 50-100000.

Triple Resolution Technology

Choose between 60, 36, or 18MP output while still utilizing the full sensor area with Leica's Triple Resolution Technology. This unique pixel binning process allows you to capture DNG and JPEG files at smaller sizes while still benefiting from the sensor's rich 14-bit color depth and 15-stops of dynamic range.

Hybrid AF System with PDAF

Utilizing a hybrid AF system for optimized focusing, the SL3 features Phase Detection AF with Object Detection AF and Contrast Detection AF, ensuring speedy shifts in focus as well as reliable performance in low light scenarios. With this improved focusing system, the camera tracks eyes, faces, bodies, and animals much more effectively.

8K Video Recording & ProRes 1080p

Take full advantage of the SL3 with its impressive video capturing capabilities. All video resolutions, including 8K, frame rates, and quality settings can be recorded internally or externally without limit.

ProRes 422 HQ recording can be done with Full HD resolution at frame rates up to 60p.

HDMI 2.1 Type A and USB-C ports provide greater access to accessories like external recorders, gimbals, and power banks, making the SL3 a great tool for video creation.

5-Axis Image Stabilization

Complementing this camera's powerful sensor is a 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization system that provides up to 5-stops of shake reduction, allowing you to capture sharper handheld images.

Body Design Updates & Additional Features

One CFexpress Type B slot and one SD UHS-II slot are available for added versatility for file saving, allowing you to separate JPEG and raw files to different cards or save duplicate files to each card.

A USB-C port allows for fast file transferring and tethering with full support for Capture One, Adobe Photoshop, and Lightroom. Also supports high-speed in-camera battery charging.

A full-size HDMI 2.1 Type A port benefits video applications and a 3.5mm microphone and headphone jacks for advanced audio recording needs.

Its durable magnesium and aluminum construction withstands tough weather conditions and is splash and dust protected with a rating of IP54.

Video recording capabilities: Video recording capabilities: 8K, C8K, 4K, C4K, FHD, MP4 + MOV, H.265, and ProRes 1080p.

Leica L2 technology allows for a vast selection of L-mount compatible lenses.

Mechanical shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second.

Flash sync speeds up to 1/200.

Built-in Wi-Fi 5 (MIMO) and Bluetooth 5.1 work in conjunction with the Leica FOTOS app for wireless file transferring and remote camera control.

New graphical user interface with new icons and custom font for a more modern design and increased menu legibility.

Support for Live View portrait and landscape shooting with orientation auto-detection.

Photocentric menu settings are highlighted in red, while video centric settings are highlighted in yellow, aligning with the design language of the Leitz Cine lenses.
