New Sensor

At the core of the Leica SL3, you can find the BSI CMOS full -frame sensor with Triple Resolution Technology, which is safely protected in a solid all -metal body with elegant leather. To meet a variety of photographic requirements, the sensor records files in DNG or JPEG format with a resolution of either 60, 36 or 18 MP. In each case, the full sensor surface is used. Together with the dynamic range expanded to 15 f-stops and the impressive ISO range from 50 to 100,000, the SL3 delivers remarkably detailed images in outstanding quality – in all light conditions.

New Autofocus System

With phase detection (PDAF), depth mapping (Object Detection AF), and contrast recognition (Contrast Detection AF), the innovative autofocus system of the SL3 combines the strengths of three technologies to create razor-sharp pictures even in dim light. In addition, intelligent subject recognition supports the photography of dynamic scenes.

Versatility

The lens bayonet, which is based on the L- Mount standard developed by Leica, facilitates the use of outstanding lenses from all of the Leica camera systems. Additionally, it is compatible with a diverse array of ultra-wide to super-telephoto zoom lenses offered by L-Mount alliance partners. Therefore, the lens bayonet guarantees extensive system compatibility for the Leica SL3. Specifically, the exceptional potential of the renowned Leica M-Lenses is fully harnessed, thanks to the unique design of the image sensor and an external light sensor. The integrated in-body image stabilization further broadens the scope of application for M-Lenses.

Screens

The EyeRes® viewfinder of the Leica SL3 is equipped with an elaborately manufactured optical system made of glass lenses. It always shows the subject crystal clear with up to 120 frames per second and a resolution of 5.76 million pixels. Another new feature is the tiltable 3-inch high-res touchscreen with a high-quality tilting mechanism. Even more creative possibilities can be achieved thanks to its additional viewing angles.

Video

Videos are recorded in a resolution of up to 8K, supported by efficient codecs such as H.265 and ProRes by Apple. A dedicated time code interface allows for professional image and sound synchronization on set. Throughout this process, the new Maestro-IV processor with L2 technology easily handles the vast amounts of data, resulting in pictures with magnificent color rendering as well as excellent noise performance. Additionally, the Leica SL3 is able to continuously record video, as long as adequate power and file space is available.

UI Design

Another highlight is the new user interface of the Leica SL3. As a result, the grip, button layout, and overall camera design have been refined to further promote intuitive handling. The updated, streamlined icon and menu design offer a clear structure, facilitating even easier navigation. The distinct separation of photo and video modes proves especially beneficial as it is aided by a specific color code for differentiation: red for photo mode and yellow for video mode. When photographing and filming, the SL3’s user interface aligns itself in landscape or portrait format, depending on the camera position.

Durability & Ergonomics

Thanks to the convenient handling, improved ergonomics, robust design, and IP54 certification, photographers can focus on capturing the shot in any weather and environment. The camera’s operating conditions are from -10 to 40 degrees Celsius (14 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit). At the same time, the new SL3 is noticeably lighter and more compact than its predecessors and is even more comfortable to use.

Interfaces

The camera’s new interface and improved connectivity ensure a seamless professional workflow. CFexpress type B and UHS-II SD slots are available, a USB-C port for high- speed data transmission, tethering, and power supply as well as a full-size HDMI 2.1 output for external monitors or recording equipment. Additionally, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with MIMO technology ensure a stable and fast connection to the Leica FOTOS app. As a certified Apple “Made for iPhone® and iPad®” accessory, the Leica SL3, together with the included USB-C cable, enables a direct connection to Apple products.

Accessories

The new BP-SCL6 battery, along with the separately available double charger, offers ample capacity. This dual charger allows for the simultaneous and faster charging of two batteries. The double charger and the additional battery are available individually or as an attractive set. Moreover, the accessories within the SL- System now include a new handgrip and a DC coupler. The DC coupler can be inserted into the camera’s battery slot to ensure acontinuous power supply via USB-C. The new carrying strap with an innovative attachment and a hard-wearing wrist strap for the hand grip have also been specially designed for everyday professional photography use.

  • Clear structure with the ability to modify the layout of the interface: In addition to the 8 customizable physical dials and buttons on the camera, the 8 on-screen tiles present when pushing the menu button can now also be customized. Additionally, a third row of touch-friendly icons can now be activated, located on the right-hand side of the live view screen.
  • Distinct separation between photo and video menu settings: Photo centric menu settings are now highlighted in red, while video centric settings are now highlighted in yellow, aligning with the design language of the Leitz Cine lenses.
