Leica SL voted Best Premium Camera at 2016 TIPA Awards
Leica Camera today announced that the Leica SL mirrorless camera system has been honoured as ‘Best Premium Camera’ in the 2016 TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) Awards. Launched in October 2015, the Leica SL was selected by an international jury of editors from leading photographic magazines thanks to the new standards it has set in speed, imaging performance, versatility and innovation. The presentation of the 2016 TIPA Awards, now in their 26th year, will take place on 20 September during the Photokina exhibition in Cologne, Germany.
Featuring a full-frame, 24MP CMOS sensor and perfectly matched system components, ranging from premium quality lenses to its electronic viewfinder, the Leica SL delivers exceptional imaging quality. The high-performance Maestro II series processor guarantees that the camera responds instantaneously to all commands, and, combined with 2GB of buffer memory, makes it possible to capture consecutive exposures at rates of up to 11 frames per second at full 24MP resolution and 4K video with a frame rate of 30 frames per second. The electronic EyeRes viewfinder, with its impressive 4.4 megapixel resolution, delivers an entirely new visual experience and, in combination with a 2.95” back panel display, enables optimum image assessment capabilities. Body components machined from solid aluminium, and meticulously engineered seals around its controls and in the lenses, provide optimum protection against dust and moisture, making the Leica SL the ideal tool for use in the tough conditions experienced daily by professional photographers.
Every year, the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) selects the best photographic and imaging products of the year in 40 different categories. At the 2016 annual general TIPA meeting, representatives from 27 member publications from 15 different countries, as well as the Japanese Camera Journal Press Club (CJPC), voted to determine the best products in each of the 40 categories.
