4K shooting Leica S (Typ 007) Medium Format SLR launched at Photokina – Cinema5D gets the scoop

By site editor Dan Chung:

New Leica S is First Medium Format Camera that Shoots 4K Video from cinema5D on Vimeo.

With IBC in Amsterdam is now over the focus of attention for new cameras moves to the Photokina show in Cologne. Along with the Canon 7DmkII the other major camera launch was a 4K shooting medium format SLR from Leica.

Newsshooter are not at the show as it covers mainly photo products, but our friends from Cinema5D were on hand to get the low down.
Strangely the camera only seems to shoot 4K in a reduced S35 crop mode – but this does enable a pixel to pixel readout of the sensor. To use a medium format frame you need to drop to HD resolution.

Head over to Cinema5D for more.

Price tag is a rather larger $25K.
