PRESS SUMMARY

Check out the Leaf Aptus-II 12 camera back details and specificationsLeaf Imaging today introduced the world's highest resolution, one-shot medium format digital camera back. The Leaf Aptus-II 12 (and Leaf Aptus-II 12R with internal rotating sensor) delivers the world's highest-quality image capture. It is both a major technical advance and another important illustration of the benefits of medium format camera technology - namely, the ability to support a very large image sensor, with enormous light sensitivity and high dynamic range.

The powerful new full-frame 53.7 x 40.3mm 80 MP CCD sensor is at the heart of a system specially designed for a range of photographers such as commercial/advertising pros, archivists digitizing and persevering rare treasures, and fine artists. Whether the subject is architecture, landscape, portraits or product advertising, the sheer quality of detail is unsurpassed. This level of resolution eliminates moiré and more perfectly renders objects - from the texture of fine fabrics to the smooth curves of car metal.

"There's no question that more megapixels in an image sensor offers significantly higher detail and larger output sizes," said Tim Grey, photographer, author, and respected digital imaging expert. "While there are software products that can enhance and enlarge a photo, the result will never truly be more information than was captured by the image sensor. For photographers who need maximum detail and the potential for particularly large print sizes, medium format digital backs represent ideal tools."

With built-in SensorFlex technology, owners of the Aptus-II 12/Aptus-II 12R back can choose to shoot images either at full resolution or they can "dial down" to select an aspect ratio, such as the 1:1 with 60MP resolution, that will satisfy their particular project requirements - enabling faster processing and smaller file size.

"The Leaf Aptus-II 12 and Aptus-II 12R represent just another step in delivering our customers both the power and the flexibility they need," said Dov Kalinski, CEO of Leaf Imaging, Ltd. "Today's professional photography requires great flexibility - infinite detail, rich color and razor sharpness. These systems deliver all this and more."
