S (Typ 007) Black
Medium Format DSLR Camera
The Leica S (Typ 007) is a medium format DSLR offering performance and flexibility with high-resolution still and video recording capabilities. Featuring a 37.5MP 30 x 45mm CMOS sensor and Maestro II image processor, it is capable of producing remarkably sharp, clear images, with wide dynamic range. An optical low-pass filter has been omitted, allowing the sensor to capture enhanced detail and resolution. On-sensor microlenses work to produce consistent and even light distribution to ensure edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. The S is also capable of capturing 4K video files, as well as full HD, with a variety of options for audio and video recording.
Combining the sensor and processing prowess of the camera, it features a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 as well as the ability to record up to 32 consecutive DNG files at a rate of 3.5 fps. A predictive autofocus system, using a central cross-type phase detection point, helps to maintain critical focus in a variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, if working in live view, focus peaking serves as a useful alternative for ensuring image sharpness with manual focus techniques.
Complementing the advanced imaging capabilities of the Leica S is an equally refined body design, which takes on a minimalist structure with focus on the most essential shooting controls. A large, 3.0", 921.6k-dot, LCD monitor makes image review and menu navigation easy, while the large 0.87x-magnification, pentaprism viewfinder acts as a bright tool for image composition. A weather-sealed, magnesium alloy, body construction protects the system from dust and moisture, including the series of interface ports and lens mount. Built-in Wi-Fi is also available, enabling remote camera control and wireless transferring of files to mobile devices, and a GPS module allows location information to be recorded to the EXIF data of image files.
