Recently, Leica introduced two new adapters to expand the functionality of their SL camera system. With this most recent audio and optical expansion, Video and studio shooters now have even more reason to consider the SL system.
The new S to T adapter enables the use of S System lenses on the SL body, allowing for a range of autofocus prime lenses to be used. Not only does the S line include some of the finest optics in the world, but several of the lenses feature a leaf shutter. Anyone experienced with the use of off camera flash will immediately recognize the importance of a nice high shutter sync speed in overcoming ambient light, which leaf shutters enable. The combination of a leaf shutter and amazing optics turns the SL into an incredible tool for balancing ambient light with flash.
For the video crowd, a combination microphone/headphone adapter is also available. This all-in-one adapter provides a microphone and headphone jack, eliminating the need for an external audio recorder or reliance on built-in microphones and enabling close monitoring of audio levels.
