Creative
Cornerstone

Young creative Parker Schmidt
with the Leica Sl2-S.

While filming “Creative Cornerstone”, we would film right at the break of dawn or immediately after sunset.

This time of the day provides my favorite color palette but can often be too dark for capturing video. The low-light capabilities of the SL2-S had saved us when shooting during this time of day, and it's L-log capture profile allowed us to bring back the natural colors that we had witnessed during the final moments of light.

With its lack of buttons and knobs it is satisfying to hold in the hand, while having to hang out the side of a car or keeping up with a pro athlete.

While ultimately, a few frames end up being worthwhile, I'm thankful that I don't have to sacrifice a high frame rate for a lower quality of captured images. Since this camera can provide a burst fire of frames with it's full-frame and overkill 24 Megapixel sensor.

Two worlds. One choice.
