Outstanding Image Quality

The Leica SL3 delivers images of superior quality and detail in three different resolutions. Its full-frame sensor with Triple Resolution Technology, in conjunction with the legendary Leica lenses and the Maestro IV processor, produces the iconic Leica Look in 60, 36, or 18 megapixels.

Pin-Sharp in Any Light

An innovative hybrid autofocus system in the Leica SL3 combines three different technologies: phase detection, object recognition, and contrast detection. Thanks to advanced algorithms, these technologies work in harmony to produce a highly precise system.

Design Makes the Difference

The SL3 is noticeably more compact and lighter than all its previous models. The camera’s excellent Leica UX design guarantees a user-friendly and personalised operation. With sleek shapes, adaptable user interfaces, and a clear distinction between photo and video modes, the SL3 impresses with outstanding ergonomics at all levels.

The Perfect User Experience is Always in Focus

A smooth workflow whilst shooting is easily facilitated with swift access to frequently used functions in the control centre. The system camera’s high-resolution and tiltable display contribute to the user-friendly design, focused entirely on ease of use. Additionally, the SL3’s interface can be fully customised according to personal preferences.

Made in Germany

The SL3 is crafted with precision and attention to detail in Wetzlar, Germany. The solid and entirely sealed full-metal housing is hand-built exclusively from the finest materials, guaranteeing an enjoyable photography experience in all weather conditions for years to come. 

Connectivity at the Highest Level

The functions of the SL3 have been developed in close cooperation with professionals. As a result, the camera features a variety of connectivity options for data transfer and wireless connectivity. These include slots for CFexpress Type B and SD UHS-II cards, a USB-C port, as well as a full-size HDMI output and a timecode interface. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi ensure a stable and fast wireless connection.

Full-Frame Sensor with Triple Resolution Technology and Image Stabilisation

The Leica SL3's 60-megapixel sensor offers a dynamic range of up to 15 stops, 14-bit colour depth, and exceptionally good noise reduction, guaranteeing breath-taking images. Available in three different resolutions: 60, 36, and 18 megapixels, in both DNG and JPG formats. Its ISO sensitivity ranges from ISO 50 to ISO 100.000, ensuring outstanding results in all lighting conditions. Additionally, camera shake is efficiently compensated by the 5-axis image stabilisation (IBIS).

Maestro IV Processor

This state-of-the-art image processor ensures a fast and reliable operation of the Leica SL3’s photo and video applications. Optimised noise characteristics, rapid signal processing, and the unique Leica colour reproduction are just a few of the many aspects this high-performance processor with L2 technology brings to photography and videography, creating the unmistakable Leica look. Specifically for videographers, the Maestro IV supports the data transfer speed of the CFexpress Type B interface and the ability to record 8K videos and a range of highly efficient video codecs.

Precise Autofocus System

The SL3’s autofocus system combines three technologies using efficient algorithms. Depending on the shooting situation, the interplay of phase detection (PDAF), depth map (Object Detection AF), and contrast detection (Contrast Detection AF) are optimally adjusted. As a result, the SL3 produces perfectly sharp images in any light. Intelligent subject recognition also supports the photography of dynamic scenes. The strengths of each technology are combined into a highly precise system that effortlessly meets all professional requirements.

Unique Leica UX Design

Leica's product design has always gained international reputation. The Leica SL3 exceeds all the demands for an intuitive and user-focused operation. With its sophisticated icon and menu design, a touch screen with gesture control, and a clearly structured navigation, the design facilitates a smooth workflow during shooting. Clearly separated by photo and video functions with their own colour scheme: red for photo and yellow for video.

Customisable to Individual Preferences

The SL3's main functions can be fully customised to individual needs. Freely assignable FN buttons and additional controls are included, as well as the customisable allocation of frequently used functions in the control centre on the tiltable 3.2-inch touch display. Thanks to the floating design, the icons on the display automatically adjust to the camera's orientation, ensuring optimal readability. With its energy-saving standby mode, the SL3 is ready to shoot at a click of the shutter button.

Optimised Design

The SL3 is noticeably lighter and more compact than its predecessors and fits excellently in the hand. An optimised camera design ensures all currently available Leica L-Mount lenses are perfectly balanced, making the SL3 a particularly comfortable tool for demanding creatives. The elegant leather finish, also found on the separately available handgrip, provides an optimal grip and a sophisticated feel.

Fully Sealed Housing Made in Germany

The Leica SL3 impresses with its robust construction, designed to withstand the challenges of daily use at all times. Exclusive high-quality materials give the SL3 longevity and reliability for years to come. This is also supported by continuous firmware updates that can be easily installed with the Leica FOTOS App. The IP54 certification of the solid full-metal housing guarantees extended protection against moisture and dust, allowing the camera to be used for both photo and video shoots even under adverse production conditions.

High-Resolution EyeRes® Viewfinder

The eyepiece of the SL3's electronic viewfinder is meticulously crafted with high-quality coated glass lenses. This enables optimal display of the OLED displays' image inside with a resolution of 5.76 million pixels and up to 120 B/s. Allowing the exposure and composition to be reliably assessed in the Live Preview. Thanks to the integrated eye sensor, an automatic switch between the viewfinder and the Live-View display occurs when the camera is not held directly to the eye.

Fast Data Transfer with or without Cables

Among the many interfaces for data transfer and connectivity of the SL3 are slots for CFexpress Type B and UHS-II SD cards, a USB-C port for fast data transfer, tethering and charging, as well as an HDMI Type-A output for external monitors or recording devices. A dedicated timecode interface ensures the synchronisation of image and sound in video productions with multiple cameras. Additionally, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with MIMO technology ensure stable and fast connection to the Leica FOTOS App. As a result, photos in full DNG resolution can be transferred from the camera to a mobile device within approximately 2 seconds. A mobile workflow that keeps up with the times.
