Leica SL with Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R Overview

The sensor resolution of Lumix DC-S1R is greater than that of SL. The difference of 23 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 (Lumix DC-S1R), 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 24400. Lumix DC-S1R has image stabilization(5-axis Sensor-shift), SL doesn’t, it is a big minus. Both cameras feature a 3-inch tilting screen.
Both cameras have a electronic viewfinder. Viewfinder Lumix DC-S1R has a higher resolution of 5760k dots, SL has a resolution of 4400k dots. Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R has 11.0 fps continuous shooting.
