Leica S (Type 006) 37.5 MP Digital Camera New USA$21,950.00

NEW Leica S (Type 006)   37.5 MP 7500 x 5000 pixel Sensor resolution Digital Camera New USA Cat #10803 

We proudly present a new innovation by Leica Camera, the new Leica S.
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.
▸ 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 colors of the sRGBcolor 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.

Finally 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 armoring 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.

LEICA TS-APO-Elmar-S 120mm f5.6 ASPH. Cat #11079 New $6,950.00

New Item, Available for pre-order Expected availability: January 2013

We proudly present a new lens by Leica Camera, the Leica TS-APO-Elmar-S 1:5.6/120mm ASPH.
Similar to the movements of a view camera, the Leica TS-APO-ELMAR-S 120mm f5.6 ASPH., gives the photographer complete control over the perspective and the focal plane. The lens is characterized by an image circle increased by 153mm, which means that the lens can be shifted by up to 12 mm from the optical axis in any direction. This allows the user to change the view without changing the perspective, thus supporting, for example, product shots without irritating converging lines.
Independent of the shift, you can tilt the lens by up to 8° in any direction, thus tilting the focal plane in line with Scheimpflug’s principle.

▸ Tele-tilt-shift lens for high-accuracy perspective and focus control
▸ Large tilt range for maximum depth of field (Scheimpflug principle)
▸ Parallel shift to correct converging lines
▸ Precise stitching
▸ Maximum contrast, and resolution at all apertures over the entire focusing range
▸ Brilliant, pure color reproduction

The exterior of the Leica TS-APO-Elmar-S 120mm f5.6 ASPH.is different from that of other S lenses, due to its special design as a tilt/shift lens.

The lens has a total of four rings for tilt and shift, one turn-and-slide ring each for adjusting the tilt and shift directions, and one ring each for adjusting the tilt and swing respectively. It additionally features a tripod plate with a 1/4″ and a 3/8″ thread, which allows the user to fix the lens in any orientation thanks to the rotating clamp and clamping screw.
The lens’s large image circle simultaneously supports a shift of up to 12 mm and a tilt of up to 8°. Both the tilt and the shift mechanisms rotate through 360°, so that the respective adjustments can be made in any direction and independently of one other.
