Photojournalists often have to camouflage themselves to get the perfect shot or video. The Leica SL2-S Reporter encourages them to remain discrete while gathering top-notch footage. The Leica SL2-S Reporter is a new version of Leica’s SL2-S specifically designed for photojournalism. More than a camera — it’s a professional tool. The SL2-S reporter is remarkably compact and durable. It features an all-metal body with a scratch-resistant dark green paint finish. The aramid fiber coating is the same synthetic material used to produce protective equipment. The tightly-woven fibers provide armor for the camera, improved grip, and an attractive appearance. The SL2-S Reporter can easily stand up to shocks, extreme temperatures, dust, water, and other elements.
The technical specs of the SL2-S Reporter are the same as the original SL2-S. It is a mirrorless camera with a 24.6MP full-frame BSI CMOS sensor and the Maestro III image processor. Other key features include ISO 50-100000, up to 25 frames-per-second shooting, DCI 4K video, and HLG & 10-bit recording. The five-axis sensor-shift stabilization reduces camera shake so that photojournalists can snap sharp images with the camera in hand. The Leica SL2-S Reporter is a more rugged and durable version of the favorite SL2-S, which offers all the bells and whistles professionals need. Limited to just 1,000 units worldwide, the $5,495 Leica SL2-S Reporter is available for purchase now.
Leica has another recent release in the updated Leica M6.
