Leaf Aptus II 12 digital back: a video from the test shot.

Got a video from the Leaf Aptus II 12 test shot:

Leaf Aptus-II 12 80 megapixel digital back review: it is not only pixels that count.


P.S My best-I-ever-had camera, canon 1Ds mark III is on sale now. Price is $4000 so far… It might be a good deal, for like a new baby:-)

  1. Very nice, where did you find that Godfather tune?

  2. I was eating a strawberry jelly donut and having a cup of tea and I stumbled onto an interesting bio – I think the comments below mine applies to photography as well as art because the art of photography needs to be explored on a higher plane. True art is not defined by megapixels nor do megapixels create fine art. It’s the artist not the brush. Just being a little philosophical today. – TomBako

    Here is the artist Dima Karabhievsky and his thoughts-

    Born in 1967, in Moscow, Russia. Studied with prominent Russian painter, Boris Birger and self-taught. In 1990 moved to United States. Since then, lived alternatively in Boston, Maine, Moscow, Paris (France) and San-Miguel de Allende (Mexico).

    Paintings have been acquired by collectors from different parts of the world, primarily in Russia, United States, France and Israel.

    In my work, I try to combine the power of color as structural and emotional in order to represent the world that moves me. I’m also influenced by the ideas expressed in French music, as well as by the French writer A. de Saint-Exupery. My primary influences are post-impressionsists, as well as German and Austrian expressionists.

    I rely more on my feelings rather than on thoughts, and consider our subconscious and intuition to be more important and rich than our brain or intellect alone. I also believe that the mysterious process of creation of art is connected with a higher (divine) power. Rationalizing this process is always limited. The artist can’t really explain why he does this or that in his art. Ideally, the artist (and consequently the viewer) is transformed in that process just like a religious person may be transformed through prayer.

  3. FYI

    Leaf Aptus-II 12 – To double the resolution one does not need to double the pixels as the lack of a filter to counteract moiré, is equivalent to some increase definition anyway. So this camera is likely more than double the resolution of the 5DII with a dynamic range of 12 f stops!

    “With a pixel size of 6.8 μm (H3DII-39 and -31) or 6.0 μm (H3DII-50), resolution hits the Nyquist limit at 74 or 84 line pairs per millimeter, respectively. The pixel size of a 35 mm DSLR is similar, 6.4 μm being a typical size, so the limits imposed by the sensor are similar as well:  78 lp/mm is the maximum spatial frequency that a typical 35 mm sensor with 21 megapixels can resolve.”

    Phase One is claiming a dynamic range of 12.5 stops, between a third and a half stop better than the P65+, their best previous back. They also are claiming that the IQ180 is the lowest noise back yet, even though the pixel pitch has been reduced to 5.2 microns to achieve 80MP.

    • Yeah, soon I’ll do interesting test between 36×48 22mpx P25+ MFDB and 24×36 22Mpx Canon (5D or 1Ds) sensors. Will se how physical sensor size and 16 v.s 14 bit color dept will affect the image.
      And Sakharov.. he is great:-)
