Leica SL2 Street Photography Detailed Analysis
Electronic Built-in Viewfinder
Using a viewfinder during a street photography shoot allows the photographer to stabilize the camera and reduce the camera shake since it is closer to the body. Besides, it comes handy where LCD screens are very hard to read under bright sunlight. Live-view
Live view lets you take photos without using the viewfinder which makes you less obstrusive and this works very well during street photography where you don't want to get people's attention. Face-Detection Focusing
Face detection focusing mode is very helpful in the street scenes where you focus on a face, since you can concentrate on framing and other adjustments while the camera handles the focus for you. Image Stabilization
Image stabilization reduces the effects of camera shake at long exposures and long focal lengths in street photography thus ensuring sharper photos. Large Full frame (36 x 24 mm) sensor
Large sensor in Leica SL2 ensures a good low light image quality compared to smaller sensor, and it also provide shallow depth of field and a nice blurry background when needed.
Medium sized Body
Mirrorlessbody of Leica SL2 is a good combination of relatively small size and good handling camera, without giving the impression of a professional camera.
