Leaf announced two new medium format backs, the Leaf Aptus-II 12 and the Aptus-II12R (with internal rotating sensor)—at 80MP they are the world’s highest resolution digital camera backs. The price: $32,000. The pixels: 80 million, the most of any camera back to date.
Working closely with our sensor manufacturer, we developed a full frame, medium format, 80MP CCD sensor, measuring 53.7 x 40.3 mm, providing the ability to record the finest detail, eliminating the need to use cumbersome multi-shot solutions. On the Leaf Aptus-II 12R you can change from landscape to portrait orientation with a simple turn of the Leaf Verto internal sensor rotation dial. Enjoy the comfort of keeping the camera upright, rotating just the sensor.
The Leaf Aptus-II 12 camera back offers capture speeds under 1.5 second per frame.
* Fastest image transfer speed, by using advanced FireWire 800 technology.
* Fastest Read/Write speeds taking advantage of advanced CompactFlash (CF) card technology.

The Leaf Aptus-II lets you shoot anywhere. Featuring a bright 6 x 7 cm touch screen, enabling you to check your shots under all kinds of challenging lighting conditions, both in-studio and outside, as well as offering a wide range of on-screen functions.
Leaf Aptus-II backs are compatible with over 80 medium and large format cameras, and the Leaf RAW files can be opened in many leading workflow applications.
* Connect with view cameras, wide-angle optics and tilt-and-shift movements.
* Leaf RAW files are natively supported by Apple Mac OS X, for full access in Aperture, Finder thumbnails, Cover Flow, iPhoto as well as many other applications.
Uncompromising Image Quality
