Product Description

 

 

The Leica S 37.5 MP 7500 x 5000 pixel Sensor resolution Digital Camera New USA Cat #10803 

Sold with Leica USA warranty ! 

The next generation in the successful line, the Leica S offers increased imaging quality and sensor sensitivity,
predictive autofocus, higher speed and improved handling. Numerous enhanced functions contribute to the camera's
further acceleration and greater security of the professional photographic workflow.
BENEFITS AT A GLANCE
▸ The smallest, fastest and most versatile medium format camera on the market
▸ Outstanding image quality with new, improved imaging system components
▸ Comprehensive portfolio of excellent Leica S lenses
▸ Simple operation thanks to a refined, intuitive, joystick-based control concept

 

 

   

Optimum image quality

The Leica S features a specially designed and more efficient autofocus system. The sensitivity range of its sensor has also been increased: its lowest sensitivity of ISO 100 allows longer working at maximum aperture in bright conditions and the highest setting of ISO 1600 ensures perfect exposures under even the most adverse lighting conditions. Ultimate imaging quality is guaranteed.

 

 

Fast and efficient

The 2 GB buffer memory plays a significant role in the increased image-processing speed. It also allows extended sequences to be shot in continuous-shooting mode. The Leica S can capture up to 32 consecutive images in DNG format with lossless compression at a maximum rate of 1.5 frames per second. In JPEG-only mode, the number of images in sequence is limited only by memory card capacity.

Intuitive handling

The intuitive handling concept of the new Leica S gets by with a minimum of control elements. All functions are displayed in a clear and simple layout on the monitor screen and settings are entered with four soft keys and a click wheel. Brand new features of the control concept are a five-way switch in the form of a mini-joystick and an even clearer layout of the user interface.

 

Integrated GPS

The Leica S is the only professional DSLR to feature an integrated GPS module. This allows the registration of exposure location details in the EXIF data of each image file. Local times and time zones are automatically synchronised. The software provided allows the location and capture time of each image to be plotted on a map.


Informative display

With 920,000 pixels covering the 16.7 million colours of the sRGB colour space, the 3" TFT monitor enables bright and clear image viewing and assessment of sharpness, even in adverse lighting conditions. Whenever required, photographers can also superimpose exposure parameters and a transparent brightness or RGB histogram on the monitor image.

 

Finaly tuned ergonomics

Although a heavyweight in terms of technology, the new Leica is a featherweight in the hand. Its compact construction, ideal balance and a comparatively low weight of only 1,260 g are advantages that, along with the ergonomics of the handgrip, the grip characteristics of its armouring and ideal placement of all its controls, guarantee fatigue-free photography
 

Dual memory card support

The Leica S has two memory card slots for writing data simultaneously to CompactFlash and SD cards. The advantages: increased memory capacity and faster write speeds. The workflow also becomes easier, as DNG files for processing and JPEGs for image review can be saved separately on different cards.

Top connectivity

Dust- and splash-proof interfaces allow connection of the new Leica S with Macs or PCs via cable to its LEMO USB port – to read images from memory cards, control the camera remotely or to integrate studio flash systems, for example. An HD TV can also be connected for precise image review. Appropriate cables with robustly constructed strain-relief connectors are supplied with the camera.

 

Power packed photography

The new Leica S allows almost 1,000 exposures on a single battery charge. If that’s not enough, the range of S-Accessories offers a professional charger for two batteries, a 12-volt connector for the lighter socket in vehicles and a remote power supply for static shooting. A special mechanism prevents the battery falling out when the battery compartment is opened.

 
 
 
 
 
 
LEICA S Reduced to the max
OUTSTANDING IMAGE QUALITY
The outstanding imaging quality of the Leica S is not attributable to any single system component. Every single
component is optimized to perfection, but its true powers are shown by their interaction. Decisive proof of this can be
seen in the 37.5 megapixel CCD image sensor, specially developed for Leica, with micro lens shift and an infrared filter,
which - together with the extremely high performance of the Maestro processor - ensures that creative ideas always
lead to outstanding images.
SPEED
A fast processor alone is not enough to ensure high data throughput. You also need fast and large buffer memory.
Boosting the Leica S's buffer to 2 GB means accelerated image processing across the board; however, its essential
purpose is supporting long image sequences in continuous shooting mode. The Leica S can store up to 32 DNG files
with lossless compression, or 28 uncompressed DNG files, at a full consecutive shooting speed of 1.5 fps, before the
buffer is filled. In JPEG mode, the length of the consecutive shooting sequence is only limited by the capacity of the
memory card.
VERSATILITY
The new Leica S was developed in cooperation with professional photographers to meet their requirements. Besides
image quality, reliability, and ease of use, the focus was on photographic versatility. A dust and spray water protected
camera body, the dual shutter system consisting of a focal plane and central shutter, and an extended ISO range for
perfect adaptation to existing light, form the basis of the large range of photographic applications that the new Leica S
masters: from advertising photography, through fashion, photo journalism, to nature and travel photography.
ERGONOMICS
The Leica S combines the dimensions of a 35mm SLR with the imaging quality of the medium format. Thanks to its
ergonomic handgrip with improved anti-slip characteristic, the Leica S rests perfectly in your hands. Its center of
gravity is positioned so as to prevent fatigue while you are working, as the camera is lighter than professional 35mm
DSLRs at just 1260g (2.8 lbs.) (including battery) despite having an extremely robust magnesium body. In comparison
with traditional medium-format system cameras, where a digital element had to be combined with an existing analog
camera, the Leica S has the enormous advantage that all its components are perfectly placed. The result: perfect
ergonomics.
INTUITIVE CONTROLS
When you hold a Leica S in your hands, you find the controls exactly where you expect them to be. Its layout and
design, similar to that of a classic 35mm SLR, ensuring intuitive handling in every respect, for instance by combining
familiar elements like the shutter speed dial with state-of-art controls. Everything about the Leica S is dedicated to
providing photographers with all the options they need for a spontaneous style of work.
CONCENTRATION AND MINIMIZATION
Although a digital system camera offers numerous functions and settings, everyday professional photography demands
one thing in particular – the ability to concentrate on the picture you want. With this in mind, Leica developed an
incomparably intuitive operating concept for the S that relies on an absolute minimum of control elements. The central
controls on the Leica S are the shutter speed dial, the click wheel and the 5-way button, which can be reached
comfortably with your right thumb. These controls allow the photographer to adjust the exposure setting and navigate
the menus. In a nutshell: anyone holding a Leica S in their hands for the first time can rely completely on their intuition
when getting to know its extensive range of functions. In fact, it sets entirely new standards in user-friendliness.
