Super expensive Leaf Aptus-II 10R digital camera back debuts

To me spending $2,000 on a DSLR camera is a ton of cash and isn’t something I would consider doing. I couldn’t imagine spending 24,995 euro on a camera back, but I am far from the target market for the new Leaf Aptus-II 10R.

This camera back is aimed at the photography pro looking for the best performance they can get at any price. The digital camera back uses an internal rotating sensor for medium or large format photographers needing to change orientation during shooting. The device is best suited to shooting product photos, architecture, landscape, and portraits according to the maker.

The camera has a 56 megapixel sensor measuring 56x36mm and can capture the full width of medium format for landscape or portraits. The big feature of the camera is the ability to change from landscape to portrait orientation without shutting the camera off or removing it from the tripod. The ISO range is 80-800 and it can capture one frame per second. The back supports the Hasselblad V series except the 200 and 2000 versions. The digital back uses a touchscreen and can be ordered now.
