LEICA has a series of single-lens
reflex cameras, they begin with the LEICAFLEX, followed by the LEICAFLEX
SL, the LEICAFLEX SL2 and the R series from R3 to R7 are made in collaboration
of the Minolta Corporation.
Not every camera of LEICA was
created in collaboration of other major companies as the LEICA R8 was
entirely designed and manufactured by LEICA. The current model the LEICA
R9 which can be fitted with the digital module back. Has a 100% feel
of LEICA and represents the greatness of LEICA cameras.
The LEICA era moved and developed
with the modern day technology, the LEICA S1 is a reference of this.
The LEICA S1 PRO is a scanner camera with a very high resolution (26
megapixels) for stationery use was introduced in 1996. You can scan
and optically transfer images to a connected computer
Some LEICA are software compatible
like the S1 that comes with a SILVERFAST vision, which is originally
developed by laser software imaging and this is for high-end scanner.
In 2008 LEICA announced plans
to offer an “S-System” DLR with a Kodak made bespoke CCD sensor
measuring 30 *45 mm2 and containing 37 million pixels. This sensor has
a 26% longer diagonal and 56% larger area than a “full frame “ 24
* 36 mm2 DLR sensor and will output an approximately 5000 * 7500 pixel
image. The S2 will thus essentially be a medium format camera in a “35
mm SLR” sized body.
