Designed for refined image-making, the Leica S-E (Typ 006) is a medium format DSLR featuring a 37.5MP 45 x 30mm CCD sensor to produce high-resolution imagery with marked sharpness, clarity, and dynamic range. The omission of an optical low-pass filter from the sensor's design further enables enhanced detail and resolution, that pairs well with the optimized Leica S lenses. Furthermore, on-sensor microlenses work to produce consistent and even light distribution to ensure edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination for a high degree of overall clarity. With a focus on simplicity and the utmost in image quality, the S-E's capabilities benefit those who value both performance and image quality, all set within a durable and efficient design.

The imaging quality is accentuated by efficient performance and processing abilities, aided by the integrated 2GB buffer for capturing up to 32 consecutive DNG lossless compressed files at a 1.5 fps continuous shooting rate. When working with fast-moving subjects, an intelligent center cross-type AF point helps to produce precise focus and a predictive algorithm works to ensure sharpness when photographing subjects in motion.

Complementing the advanced imaging capabilities of the Leica S-E 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 serves as a clear means for image review and menu navigation while the large 0.86x-magnification pentaprism viewfinder acts as a bright tool for image composition. A weather-sealed body construction protects the system from dust and moisture, and an anthracite dial and hot shoe complement the overall design and appearance of the camera.

Leica Pro Format CMOS Sensor
A large, 37.5MP, 45 x 30mm, CCD sensor enables truly high-resolution imaging with a native sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 1600. The large size of the sensor helps to produce notable image sharpness and clarity with smooth tonal and color gradations. Additionally, the design of the sensor enables the omission of a traditional optical low-pass filter for achieving even greater image sharpness and resolution. On-chip microlenses have also been incorporated into the sensor's design to ensure even light distribution and sharpness from edge-to-edge.
Fast and Efficient Performance
An integrated 2GB buffer complements the Maestro image processor's speed and facilitates recording up to 32 consecutive 37.5MP DNG lossless compressed files at a continuous shooting rate of 1.5 fps. When shooting in the JPEG format, the total number of consecutive images recorded is only limited by the memory card's capacity.
Intuitive Handling
Housing the imaging system is a robust, dust and weather-sealed, magnesium alloy body featuring an anti-slip rubberized cover for both durability and refined handling. An anthracite top dial and hot shoe also contribute to the overall aesthetic and functional appearance. A rear, 3.0", 921.6k-dot, LCD monitor is available for image review and is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection and greater viewing clarity. Alternatively, an eye-level pentaprism viewfinder is also available and features a 0.86x magnification for clear visibility in a variety of working situations. Within the viewfinder, an array of camera settings information can also be displayed, including an electronic level, exposure time and settings, flash status, focus indicator, number of remaining shots, and metering methods.

The rear of the camera is also laid out in an intuitive manner for expedited settings control using a joystick-based control method. Both a flash sync port and hot shoe are available for external flash support and a contact bar at the base of the camera is designed to accept an optional Multifunctional Hand Grip S for enhanced handling in the vertical shooting orientation.
Interface and Power Support
Dual memory card slots avail the use of both SD and CompactFlash cards simultaneously. Files can be recorded to both cards or, alternatively, the cards can be set up to accept overflow files or to save DNG files to one card and JPEG files to the other.

The included Leica S rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, rated at 2100mAh, allows approximately 1000 shots per charge.
Language Support
English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese (traditional and simple), Russian, and Korean.
