Photog Hounds Like The Leica S5

The Leica S5 concept is a technical and stylish evolution to its predecessor the S2. A reduced form factor accentuates the optical connection between body and lens. The objective was to design a body which emits harmony – underlining the technological advances of the S- System.

The specs are pretty high-up but a little wishful thinking doesn’t hurt. The Leica S5 carries a GPS and image stabilizer onboard, which make the camera suitable for sport- action photo sessions. An integrated WLAN connection makes computer tethering less of a headache. An additional feature is the ability to make HD- short movies, one we see many of the top-tier digital SLRs are throwing in.
