Leica digital system camera at Photokina


Ilse Jurriën : 2008-10-03 10:00:00
Leica system camera at Photokina 2008 : Besides Panasonic’s surprising news for the visitors of the Photokina show, Leica also made itself heard. Leica is a company with an excellent reputation, although you would not actually expect surprises of them. However, at the Photokina 2008, Leica presented the company as a brand with actual world fame. Who would expect Leica to present an entirely new digital camera system in addition to a twosome compact cameras (C-Lux 3 and D-Lux 4) and a somewhat dull Leica M8.2? A genuine surprise, to say the very least, and an interesting new development for the professional photography market. The Leica S2 is a much larger format system camera than the usual Leica assortment, and the camera features a gigantic sensor sized 30 x 45mm.

Ilse Jurriën : 2008-09-15 11:31:00

Due to a concave mirror in the optics (hence the term ‘mirror viewfinder’) part of the incoming light is used to illuminate the picture outline as a bright frame - in the same way as in the viewfinder of Leica M cameras.
