The new Leica Maestro II Processor

This processor, which has been specially developed for Leica, is four times faster than its predecessor and, with a frame rate of 3.5 fps, sets a new record in the medium-format category.

Leica Pro Format

Redefining sensor format

With dimensions of 30 x 45 mm, this sensor is more than 50 per cent larger than that of a 35 mm camera. As a result, the Leica Pro Format strikes just the right balance between image quality and creative possibilities.


Outstanding picture quality

Thanks to its sensor and processor, the Leica S can record professional video footage to Cine 4k standard, with the entire sensor width of 45 mm used for recording in full-HD resolution. When combined with the outstanding quality of the Leica S-Lenses, the result is video footage with a truly unique look.
