Leica S (Typ 007)

37.5 Megapixel

Medium Format Redefined


The new Leica Maestro II Processor

This processor, which has been specially developed for Leica, is four times faster than its predecessor and, with a frame rate of 3.5 fps, sets a new record in the medium-format category.

Leica Pro Format

Redefining sensor format

With dimensions of 30 x 45 mm, this sensor is more than 50 per cent larger than that of a 35 mm camera. As a result, the Leica Pro Format strikes just the right balance between image quality and creative possibilities.


Outstanding picture quality

Thanks to its sensor and processor, the Leica S can record professional video footage to Cine 4k standard, with the entire sensor width of 45 mm used for recording in full-HD resolution. When combined with the outstanding quality of the Leica S-Lenses, the result is video footage with a truly unique look.


The Maestro II Processor has been specially developed for Leica for use in the new Leica S and is four times faster than its predecessor. All its electronic components are designed for maximum data throughput. The processor provides improved noise suppression and ensures that the camera reacts instantaneously to your commands. The continuous shooting rate of up to 3.5 frames per second sets a new record in the medium format class. This is all made possible by 7,500 digital/analogue converters in parallel and a 2 GB buffer memory.

Leica Pro Format

Experience perfection in even the tiniest details. The new Leica S possesses all the proven qualities of the S-System, in particular the innovative, 30 by 45 mm Leica Max CMOS image sensor in Leica Pro Format. This sensor is more than 50 per cent larger than that of a 35 mm camera. Leica Pro Format offers perfect balance between image quality and creative options. It is large enough to deliver significantly higher imaging quality and shallower depth of focus than 35 mm and is suitable for a broad spectrum of photographic uses that go far beyond conventional medium format photography.


With the Cine 4k standard, the new Leica S offers video imaging quality that you simply won’t find in other cameras. The entire, 45 mm, width of the sensor is used for video recording in full-HD resolution. This, together with the exceptional quality of Leica S-System lenses, lends video recordings a unique look that warms the hearts of cineasts. Videos produced with the new Leica S captivate viewers with the bokeh created by the use of selective sharpness that is so typical in Leica still pictures.


Less is more. Let your feelings and the intuitive handling concept of the Leica S be your guide. The innovative clickwheel control and the five-way switch guarantee you fast and simple access to the settings you need. The camera’s compact construction, favourable centre of balance and the ergonomically designed handgrip and low overall weight guarantee additional ease when shooting.
