The new Leaf Aptus 75 medium and large format digital camera back, which was recently launched at the PhotoPlus Expo, is powered by DALSA’s new 33 megapixel FTF5066 CCD image sensor. The camera back, which will begin shipping in November, produces stunning 16 bit images with file sizes of nearly 200 megabytes. The Leaf Aptus 65, which will be available early in 2006, features the 28 megapixel FTF6146 DALSA chip and generates high quality 160 megabyte image files, also at 16 bits.
Beyond pure resolving power, DALSA’s new image sensor chips are the most feature-rich in the industry, with large 7.2 micron pixels for the widest possible dynamic range, industry leading frame rates, instant response (no shutter lag) and low power consumption.
“We’re pleased to once again supply Leaf, a valued customer, with our latest professional-grade image sensor products,” said Brian Doody, President of DALSA Digital Imaging. “These sensors set a new benchmark not only for image quality, but also for unique features that directly benefit professional photographers.”
