The Leica S (Typ 006) Medium Format DSLR Camera houses a 37.5MP low noise CCD image sensor. The camera's clean body makes for intuitive use, thanks to a lack of extraneous functions. Four soft keys and a click wheel enter settings, while the 3.0" LCD monitor displays all the functions of the camera in a clear, simple layout. A five-way switch, designed to resemble a mini-joystick, is a control concept developed for the Leica S. A high eye point viewfinder and a comfortable handgrip, round out the ergonomic features of the camera body. The Leica S has the aforementioned 37.5MP, all of which are put to use rendering extremely detailed medium format images. Compatible with Leica S lenses, the combination of the low-noise CCD sensor and Leica glass ensure clarity and high quality image capture. Other aspects that help capture professional-grade DNG or JPEG files include a 2GB buffer memory for smooth, fast operation of the camera, dual memory card slots for utilizing CF and SD/SDHC/SDXC cards, and an ISO range of 100-1600.

Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, there is no adapter currently available for Contax 645 lenses to be able to work on the Leica S cameras. Leica has announced an adapter but we have no expected availability at this time.Leica Camera presents a new accessory for the Leica S: the Leica S-Adapter C. This adapter now permits the use of all lenses from the Contax 645 SLR system on Leica S, S2 and S2-P camera bodies. http://bhpho.to/1gN7tud The Leica lenses that are available for use with the S medium format DSLR are autofocus lenses. Leica S Series Lenses are manufactured with autofocus built into the lens. An integrated screw-type motor provides dependable, fast autofocusing without noise. The photographer can override autofocus at any time by adjusting the wide focus ring.
