TEANECK, N.J., Oct. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — With the Leica SL2-S Reporter, Leica Camera AG presents a new member of its Reporter-Design-Series and thus pays highest tribute to photo and video journalism. The robust design version, in which an M10-P, a Q2 and a Q2 Monochrome have already been released, meets the high requirements of the often adverse operating conditions of professional photography. Due to its unobtrusive appearance, the reliable and precise photography and filming tool makes it possible to become a part of the action without attracting attention.
The Leica SL2-S Reporter redefines the limits of resilience with its robust all-metal body, its particularly scratch-resistant paint finish in dark green and the aramid fiber coating. Thus, it easily defies extreme temperatures, shocks, dust and water and offers nature and outdoor photographers as well as photo journalists and press photographers endless creative possibilities. The resistant synthetic fiber aramid is notably used for the production of protective equipment. With its distinctive pattern of tightly interwoven fibers, the special armor not only provides an extraordinary look but also a considerably increased grip – for even more safety and stability when photographing and filming. In its technical characteristics, the design variant corresponds to the serial model Leica SL2-S.
