With the new Leica S-E, Leica Camera AG, Wetzlar, offers an ideal entry-level model for Leica S medium-format system. The camera provides practically all technical advantages of the Leica S (Type 006) and presents an attractive alternative within the Leica S-System. The new colour scheme, with a top deck in anthracite grey paint and a silver anodised shutter speed dial, adds even more to its attraction.
The S-E (Type 006) offers photographers access to the entire portfolio of lenses, technical equipment and accessories available for the Leica S-System. Owners of a Leica S-E can also enjoy the benefits of S-System service and extend the warranty for the camera body to three years with the optional Leica Protection Plan.
Proven advantages of the S-System
The Leica S-E possesses all proven quality characteristics of the S-System. These include the large 30 í„ 45 mm Leica Pro Format sensor and its micro-lens layer that guarantees consistently uniform brightness from corner to corner. The camera is extremely ruggedly built and sealed against environmental influences like dust and rain äóñ just like all S-Lenses. The systems unique dual-shutter concept offers photographers the choice of using the cameras fast focal plane shutter with speeds up to 1/4000 s or the electronically controlled central shutter of the CS lenses that allows flash sync at shutter speeds up to 1/1000 s. The ten currently available Leica S-System lenses (six of which are also available with a central shutter) offer photographers all important focal lengths and a first-class tilt/shift lens. The latest member of the family to beŒælaunched by Leica is the Summicron-S 100 mm f/2 ASPH., a lens particularly suitable for portrait photography. At the same time, numerous third-party medium-format lenses can be mounted on the Leica S-E by means of adapters. For instance, the Leica S-Adapter C allows the use of Contax 645 lenses and the Leica S-Adapter H provides full compatibility for all functions of Hasselblad H lenses, including auto-focus, central shutter control and automatic aperture control.
Further details, like secure cable connections, optimized energy efficiency or the scratch-resistant display, ensure that photographers never compromise when they choose a Leica S-E. The Leica S-E therefore stands as an ideal and extremely reliable tool for achieving the best possible results in the studio and on location äóñ under even the most unfavorable conditions.
