Leaf Aptus 54S digital back
Leaf is launches the world’s fastest digital camera back at Photokina 2006, the industry’s largest trade show, in Cologne, Germany. The new Leaf Aptus 54S camera back can deliver shooting speeds from 0.8 seconds per frame - or as many as 75 frames per minute - with unlimited burst depths. The camera back in the new S-series uses advanced, accelerated image-processing hardware, incorporating a new, lossless image-compression engine, designed to achieve record-breaking speeds. Leaf has doubled the CCD sensor readout speed in order to accelerate shooting speeds, and has doubled the buffer size, resulting in unlimited burst depths. The new Leaf Aptus 54S will maximize the newest Sandisk CompactFlash Extreme IV card technology for portable shooting, and incorporates the new Firewire 800 communication for maximum speed.

As the world’s first and only camera back with a built-in 6 x 7 cm touch screen LCD, the Leaf Aptus 54S allows professional photographers to work intuitively, accessing any point on the RAW image with one touch for quick evaluation. The large touch screen gives one- tap access available in six languages, including Chinese and Japanese, to a variety of functions and predefined settings that photographers need during the shoot.
