Both photo and video journalism capture many faces and tell a wide variety of stories. Whether it's social or cultural topics, outdoor and wildlife photography, or political reporting, the wide range of topics and situations creates a number of diverse and ever-changing needs on the equipment you need.
Witnesses who go beyond their limits on a mission do not accept being limited by their photo-video equipment. That's why the robust Leica SL2-S Reporter is ready when you are. Withstands extreme temperatures, repels dust and water and resists heavy use well. Its elusive design allows you to immerse yourself in the action in the most discreet way, for authentic and meaningful photos and videos to the maximum. The SL2-S Reporter confirms the long-standing tradition of how Leica's Reporter series is conceived, which focuses on one thing: documenting the diversity of our world.
Aramid - protects with every fiber
It starts with a synthetic fiber so strong that it is commonly used for personal protective equipment. Subsequently, the fibers are spun so tightly that it is almost impossible to separate them. Intertwined in their characteristic weave, aramid fibers give the Leica SL2-S Reporter excellent protection, even in difficult conditions. They also offer an added advantage in terms of handling. The fibers offer significantly improved grip, for even greater safety when shooting photo-video.
Resilient and robust, the SL system achieves perfection in the Leica SL2-S Reporter. Its particularly scratch- and fingerprint-resistant matte green finish and aramid fiber coating set a new standard in camera durability, most reliably protecting the SL2-S Reporter from external stresses. The technical specifications of this edition are identical to the production model of the SL2-S. "Made in Germany" translates into lasting quality for generations.
With its new 24MP CMOS-BIS sensor and two separate shooting modes for photos and videos, the new Leica SL2-S Reporter offers the best of both in a state-of-the-art all-metal body.
