Leica has made an interesting move with its medium format camera Leica S (Typ 007) by including 4K 24p video shooting capability with it.
The Leica S(Typ 007) comes with a 30x45mm CMOS sensor and shoots 37.5 MP still images along with 4k video.
In another interesting move they have removed the OPLF (Optical Low-pass filter) from the sensor. One won’t notice the low frequency pattern artifacts in still images if there are more pixels, which this medium format camera has. However, when shooting video of a scene with fine details and especially panning over it, the sensors normally fail to resolve. So it would be interesting to see the impact of this sensor design without OLPF in this camera.
This camera has ISO settings from ISO 200 to ISO 6400 and ISO 100 is provided as an option.
The camera also shoots 37.5 MP DNG lossless files at 3.5fps for 32 shots before filling up the buffer. The shutter is rated to 150,000 actuations. The camera has one SD card slot and one CF card slot.
It has a big 3.0 inch 921.6k dot LCD monitor.
The 4K video as well as the HD videos can be recorded to an external recorder with 4:2:2 colour using HDMI out. The video files are recorded in Motion JPEG file format. There is an incamera stereo microphone recording at 48kHz at 16bit. A 3.5mm audio jack is incorporated into the camera's design and can be used in combination with the included Audio-Adapter S.
The camera comes with built-in Wi-Fi for connecting to mobiles for remote applications. There is also a GPS module built-in so that you can do geo-tagging.
