Offering maximum burst rate, exceptional sensor sensitivity, and an extensive range of shooting modes for still photos and video footage, the Leica S (Typ 007) is a definite treat for professional photographers and camera enthusiasts alike. All these features come together to let users create images of great quality in the fastest way possible as the camera’s photographic workflows are simplified. Constructed to withstand many years of daily use, it’s hard not to want the Leica S (Typ 007).

The Leica S (Typ 007) is an updated and enhanced version of its predecessor. It boasts of a new image sensor and processor that has increased image quality and improved speed. With a burst frequency of up to 3.5 frames per second, you’ll never miss a moment (or fail to capture a jump-shot) ever again. Two gigabytes of buffer memory helps to ensure the smooth shooting of rapid sequences while the model’s new focal plane shutter offers a further significantly increased service life of at least 150,000 cycles. The revised autofocus system, beyond offering speed, offers improved clarity and more precise focusing. A few bonuses such as integrated wi-fi, a GPS system, and a position sensor make the new Leica model even more irresistible.

Handy and compact in size, the Leica S (Typ 007) redefines medium-format photography. According to Sunil Kaul, Managing Director of Leica Camera Asia Pacific, “The Leica S-System was conceived from the ground up as a purely digital camera system and was built with the precise needs of professional photographers in mind. It is the smallest medium-format camera and offers impressively easy handling, extreme robustness, excellent imaging quality, and perfect matching of all its components. You have to try if for yourself.”

Leica Store Philippines is located at the Lower Ground Floor, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City.
