Red Dot Forum Camera Talk: Leica SL2-S


In this special installment of Red Dot Forum Camera Talk, David Farkas and Josh Lehrer will discuss the brand new Leica SL2-S, just introduced last week. Built on the same platform as the top of the line SL2, the SL2-S features a newly designed 24 megapixel full frame BSI-CMOS sensor offering speed and low light capability geared towards both photography and video applications. They’ll explain where the camera fits into the lineup, see how it compares against the SL2, and discuss whether it’s a worthy upgrade from the SL (Typ 601). Feel free to send questions beforehand, or ask us live.

Read our in-depth overview of the SL2-S:

Dpreview published their Leica SL2-S hands-on report:

Although compared to the SL2, the exterior differs only by the blacked-out logo, its lower resolution sensor will likely be welcomed by those who don’t need 47MP of resolution, or those who need better quality video (which will be augmented further in a promised firmware update next year). The SL2-S also comes with its own high-res shot mode, which can churn out 96MP files on the occasion that you do need more resolution (though you also need a tripod and a pretty static subject).

Panasonic S5: Do I Regret Leaving L Mount? by Camera Conspiracies

Camera Conspiracies:

Today we’re testing out the Panasonic S5 with kit lens 20-60mm f3.5-5.6. Can that autofocus keep up with me for a vlog? Is it the best vlogging camera ever made? We’ll test out the dynamic range, stabilization, colour science, slow motion etc. Do I regret leaving L mount now that Panasonic finally has a full frame GH5?
