TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) has awarded the Leica SL (Type 601) the Best Premium Camera for 2016.
This L-mount Leica has the classic form and ergonomics associated with the brand and a weather-resistant body made from two blocks of solid aluminium. It offers a 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor (with no low-pass filter) coupled with Leica’s engine from the Maestro II series and delivers an impressive ISO 50-50,000 range. The camera can shoot full resolution images at a rate of 11 frames per second and has a 2GB buffer that allows for up to 33 DNG or unlimited JPEG bursts. Viewing is enhanced via a 4.4MP EVF and a 2.95-inch LED touchscreen finder. It can also capture UHD 4K video at 30 and 25 fps and DCI 4K recording at 24 fps in Super35 mode.
