Fast to the point
The revised and improved predictive autofocus system of the Leica S3 always looks one step ahead. The lens and the camera act together as a perfect unit that takes the most direct way to sharp images. The autofocus is designed to quickly yet smoothly move to optimum image sharpness and can even incorporate corrections made in the very last fraction of a second. In a way that is absolutely essential for dynamic photography, it recognises all movements of a subject during the focusing process.
Medium format video
With its Leica CMOS sensor and Maestro II series image processor, the Leica S3 has all the essential technology for shooting professional video footage in 4K cinema resolution and full-HD.
The full width of the sensor is leveraged at every resolution, which also lends video recordings the special look familiar with photos in medium format.
Maestro II Processor
Designed to fulfil the need for speed
The electronic components of the Leica S3 are designed to enable maximum data transfer speeds. Thanks to more than 9,800 parallel D/A converters, image data from the sensor is read in the shortest possible times without any loss of quality.
They are then processed by the Maestro II processor, which has been specially developed for Leica.
The Leica S3 provides a free choice of workflow. Perfectly matched to the needs of the camera, the Leica Image Shuttle software ensures an efficient and professional photographic workflow in which all relevant image properties such as subject composition, framing, sharpness and exposure can be viewed and assessed on larger monitor screens.
DNG File Format
The image data captured by the Leica S3 can be saved in the future-proof DNG format (Digital Negative) – the only standardised cross-brand format that is not tied to a specific RAW data converter and can be read by the majority of image processing software packages. This means that the Leica S3 can be seamlessly integrated into every existing working environment.
The lenses are crucial when it comes to the quality of any camera system. All S-System lenses have been built to achieve nothing less than maximum optical performance. Perfect reproduction of colours and skin tones, unrivalled contrast rendition, precisely defined planes of focus and harmonious bokeh; the image quality is always perfect regardless of the aperture or focusing distance.
