Leica SL with Canon EOS R Overview


Let's compare Canon EOS R with Leica SL. These models are included in the Pro Mirrorless cameras. Canon R was released in 2018, and Leica SL in 2015. EOS R is newer, which is a plus. SL 3 years older. However 3 years, the difference is not so bad.
The sensor resolution of EOS R is greater than that of SL. The difference of 6 MP is quite a lot. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the first camera (EOS R), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Leica SL, the maximum ISO is greater by 10000. Both cameras feature a 3-inch articulated screen.
Both cameras have a electronic viewfinder. Viewfinder SL has a higher resolution of 4400k dots, EOS R has a resolution of 3690k dots. Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Canon EOS R has 11.0 fps continuous shooting. Canon EOS R has 11.0 fps continuous shooting.
