Leica S-E

Posted on

Leica S-EThis is the entry-level model for the Leica S medium-format system. The camera offers practically all technical specs of the Leica S (Type 006).

It has a large 30 × 45 mm, 37.5-megapixel Leica Pro Format sensor and its micro-lens layer that the company says guarantees consistently uniform brightness from corner to corner. The camera is extremely ruggedly built and sealed against dust and rain.

The system’s dual-shutter concept offers photographers the choice of using the camera’s focal plane shutter with speeds up to 1/4000 sec. or the electronically-controlled central shutter of the CS lenses that allows flash sync at shutter speeds up to 1/1000 sec.

The S-E also offers secure cable connections, optimized energy efficiency and scratch-resistant display.

Specifications include: Colour spaces – sRGB/Adobe RGB/ECI RGB 2.0; no low-pass filter/IR filter; AF modes are focus priority, predictive focus tracking, plus manual; multi-segment metering (five fields), centre-weighted integral metering, selective (spot) metering; programme AE (with shift function), shutter priority AE, aperture priority AE, manual metering; ISO sensitivity 100-1600; 1.5 fps frame rate; high-eye-point pentaprism with 0.87× magnification; interchangeable focusing screens; 3-inch monitor; SD and CF card storage; GPS; hot shoe; HDMI connection; Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Leica Image Shuttle 2 downloadable from the Leica owners’ area after product registration.

The Leica S-E will be available in September.
