Leica has launched the Leica S-Adapter H accesory, which allows all Hasselblad H-system lenses to be mounted on a Leica S2 camera body. The Hasselblad H-system features a total of 11 leaf shutter lenses with focal lengths from 28 to 300mm. As the S2 features a dual shutter system – users may toggle between the focal plane shutter (FPS) in the camera body or the central shutter (CS) in the lens using the main switch – photographers now have access to numerous additional lenses, increasing the photographic options offered by the Leica S-System. Users of the Hasselblad H-system also benefit from the new adapter. The versatility of Hasselblad H lenses is expanded considerably when they are used in combination with an S2. For instance, thanks to the dual shutter system of the Leica S2, H lenses can be now used with the focal plane shutter at speeds of up to 1/4000 of a second. The Leica S-Adapter H is available for £1,350.

Leica Camera AG expands the Leica S medium format system
New Leica S-Adapter H enables the use of Hasselblad H lenses on the S2

10/05/2012

Leica Camera AG today announced a new accessory for the Leica S medium format system: the Leica S-Adapter H. This adapter allows all Hasselblad H-system lenses to be mounted on a Leica S2 camera body. All lens functions, such as autofocus, central shutter control and automatic diaphragm are retained. The smart electronics of the adapter facilitate the complete integration of the lenses into the Leica S-System.

The Hasselblad H-system features a total of 11 central shutter lenses with focal lengths from 28 to 300mm. As the S2 features a dual shutter system – users may toggle between the focal plane shutter (FPS) in the camera body or the central shutter (CS) in the lens using the main switch – photographers now have access to numerous additional lenses, increasing the photographic options offered by the Leica S-System.

Users of the Hasselblad H-system also benefit from the new adapter. The versatility of Hasselblad H lenses is expanded considerably when they are used in combination with an S2. For instance, thanks to the dual shutter system of the Leica S2, H lenses can be now used with the focal plane shutter at speeds of up to 1/4000 of a second. In combination with the Leica Maestro high-performance image processor, the camera’s image sensor enables perfect, noise-free exposures up to ISO 1250.

Furthermore, the DNG format of images from the S2 enables direct connection to Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 4 workflow software and seamless data transfer to Adobe® Photoshop®. The dedicated lens correction profiles computed by Leica for both programs help photographers to achieve maximum performance from the H lenses. For longer shooting sessions with high image frequency, the S2 also offers significant advantages due to its low power consumption. The optional multifunctional Grip S with separate controls is a also particularly useful aid for optimum camera handling for portrait-format shots.
