Leica Twists and Turns Towards Medium-Format With Leica S

Sat September 22, 2012

Great interview by Barnaby Britton of DPReview of Stephan Schulz, head of Professional Imaging at Leica. Leica views its entry/re-entry into the medium-format category as a prestige thing:

The biggest risk Leica has ever taken [that] refreshes the image of Leica, to make cameras that are really used by professionals. This is what we need, and this is not only a system, it’s a statement for the brand. [...] Leica can do something beyond everything else on the market. It’s a brand statement — our flagship.

Earlier on, Schulz took a stab at those [amateur and professional photographers alike] questioning the need for medium-format: “This question comes only from people who have no experience of medium format at all.

Schulz clains the S ["the most advanced system"] holds roughly 20% of the medium-format market behind Hasselblad and PhaseOne but that Leica’s aim “is to become market leader.

As camera manufacturers increasingly shift their focus to mirrorless, Leica might find that this goal is attainable quicker that they anticipate. Should Leica pour its meager resources into a “brand statement?” It might do well to reconsider that the long line that were snaking toward its booth may well mean that it is focusing on an alphabet too far: the long line twisted and turned not for the S, but for the M.

Canon 5D Mark III Review @ DPReview

Tue May 22, 2012

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

We’re disappointed by how the [Canon] 5D Mark III renders detail in JPEG files, and low-contrast details, especially, look rather mushy, even at low sensitivities. At higher ISOs, noise reduction is more aggressive by default than we would like, resulting in comparatively clean but disappointingly soft images, when viewed at 100%.

We’ve added another Canon 5D Mark III [Specs] Review to our Reviews Matrix.

DPReview has posted their review of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, a DSLR with 22.3MP resolution using a full-frame (24 x 36mm) CMOS sensor, ISO in the range of 100-25600 (expandable to ISO L:50, H1:51200 and H2:102400) with HD video capture at 1920×1080 pixels resolution for up to 30min recording time (no more 4GB per clip limit), an extra large 3.0-in. high resolution LCD (1040k-dot), Integrated Cleaning System, Live View for stills and video, 6fps continuous shooting, AF 61-point (up to 41 cross-type points), a approx. 100% coverage optical viewfinder, and an improved weather-resistant body.
