Barney Cokeliss is a multi-award-winning director and an accomplished photographer. Leica UK have commissioned Barney to shoot a film with the Leica SL.
The SL fulfils even the most stringent demands of filmmakers as a fully fledged video camera. Barney describes his film as a mysterious nocturnal journey, which he captured on the infamous Noctilux and Summilux lenses. We caught up with Barney to see how the project is going.
35 f/2 ASPH.
35 mm is unquestionably the true standard focal length, and is rarely missing from a well-provided gadget bag. The family of lenses with this universal focal length now has a new member – the high-performance Summicron-SL.
Thanks to its combination of reference-class imaging performance, dust- and moisture-proof sealing, and state-of-the-art AF technology, this lens knows no limits.

L-Mount A new era of creative freedom
For the first time in the history of digital photography, a cross-format lens mount standard has been established that allows lenses made by different manufacturers to be used on each other’s system cameras.
EyeRes® viewfinder Complete control at any time
The Leica SL is the world’s first camera conceived for professional photography to feature an electronic viewfinder. With a latency time below the threshold of perception, an impressive resolution of 4.4 million pixels and the largest possible viewfinder image, the EyeRes® viewfinder developed especially for the Leica SL gives you complete control over every picture you take.
Full frame Highest picture quality under all conditions
The 24 MP CMOS sensor of the Leica SL has 4000 × 6000 pixels with a pixel pitch of 6 × 6 µm² on an active surface area of 24 × 36 mm. This means that you can depend on the imaging quality of a 35 mm, full-frame format. The omission of a low-pass filter ensures that the Leica SL delivers maximum image sharpness.
Never miss a moment
Capturing exactly the right moment is not only essential in sport photography. When used together with the Vario-Elmarit–SL 24–90 f/2.8–4 ASPH. and the Leica APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90–280 f/2.8-4 zoom lenses, the Leica SL has one of the fastest autofocus systems of all professional cameras – including SLRs. The camera moves the focus from infinity to the closest focusing distance in less than 110 milliseconds.Details
