Leica’s iconic SL-system was first introduced in 2015 and went on to take the photography and videography worlds by storm. This month, the brand released its newest mirrorless full-frame system camera, the SL3. Developed with the needs of professional photographers in mind, the Leica SL3 is a versatile camera that brings together technology, design, ease of handling, and craftsmanship.

The BSI CMOS is the full-frame sensor that powers the Leica SL3 with its Triple Resolution Technology. It records raw files in DNG or JPEG format with a resolution of either 60, 36 or 18 megapixels. The dynamic range has been given an upgrade too, expanding up to 15 f-stops, while the ISO range spans from 50 to 100,000. On top of that, the SL3 is also equipped with a triple threat of an autofocus system with phase detection (PDAF), depth mapping (Object Detection AF), and contrast recognition (Contrast Detection AF). To top it all off, intelligent subject recognition on the SL3 supports the photography of dynamic scenes. With all these features, you can depend on the camera for photos of unparalleled quality and detail in all light conditions.

With the SL3, you are able to use all lenses from Leica’s camera systems with its lens bayonet, which is based on the L-Mount standard. Meanwhile, the EyeRes viewfinder presents a crystal clear image of your subject with up to 120 frames per second and a resolution of 5.76 million pixels. With that, you will have total control over the exposure and composition of your photos before capturing them. To make things even easier for you, its three-inch touchscreen is tiltable for your easy viewing.

BURO Gadget Guide April 2024 Sony Ult Wear headphones

Earlier this month, Sony announced its Ult Power Sound series, designed for music lovers who love a deep sound and clear bass.
