LeafAptus-11 10 Digital Back

LEAF have launched the most incredible digital camera back. Not only does it capture huge files but with it's new SensorFlex technology, allows you to shoot a variety of sizes and formats within the overall 9288 x 6000 pixel sensor size. So for shooting large format ads like 96 and 48 sheet formats the resolution provides great cropping potential (see approximate area image above). The big difference I find between PhaseOne and Hasselblad is the colour rendition especially with skin tone. If you don't want to routinely desaturate reds by 30-40% every time you shoot, you're going to love LEAF. I'm going over to Pear Tree Digital in London soon to try the system out with my Mamiya RZ kit. I'll let you know how it goes. Page image from
