Optimale Bildqualität

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.

Schnell und effizient

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 Bedienung

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. 


GPS

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.


Ergonomisch ausgefeilt

Finely 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.

 


Speicherkarten

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.

Bestens Verbunden

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.


Ladegerät

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.
