Leica CL and UHS-2 SD cards

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello everyone,

I have just now added a Leica CL to my Leica SL kit, using R, M and L lenses.  I used the "Search" function of the forum, but came up empty.  The CL manual states that the camera accepts UHS-2 SD cards (as it must!) but does it actually use the increased throughput of the UHS-2 cards?

Thanks in advance.

No answer, so I did a quick and rough test:


Leica CL, 18-56 zoom, fresh battery.

Manual mode, 1/50th, f3.5, Manual focus, DNG+JPG.

Continuous High Speed drive mode.

UHS-1: Lexar Professional SDHC, Class 10, 133X Speed, 8 GB:  31 photos, 62 files.

UHS-2 Lexar Professional SDHC. Class 10, 1000X Speed 150MB/s, 16 GB:  49 photos, 98 files.


So, UHS-2 rated cards do make a difference.  Whether it is worth the more expensive cards is up to you.
