that’s viewable even at extreme angles.
The full-size sensor maximizes the performance of Canon EF lenses, the world’s largest
selection of autofocus lenses. With the full-size sensor, EF lenses—even wide-angle
lenses—have the same look and feel they have with conventional SLR cameras,
preserving their optical signatures. The heart of the EOS 5D, the Canon-designed
and -manufactured CMOS image sensor also features low power consumption,
extending battery life and lowering noise. A finer CMOS production process and
optimized photodiode construction increase the light-sensitive area of each pixel
and improve dynamic range as well.
12.8-Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
Solid Construction
Developed by Canon, this high-resolution, 35mm full-frame CMOS
sensor sets the standard for its class, featuring a remarkable 12.8 million
effective pixels for a maximum recorded resolution of 4368 x 2912 pixels.
Second-generation on-chip noise reduction is enhanced for easier use
with a choice of two modes: “Auto”, to engage auto noise reduction when
noise is detected; “ON”, to engage noise reduction for all exposures of
1 sec. or longer. From smooth gradations and wide ISO speed range to
effective suppression of false colors and ultra-precise white balance, this
sensor matches the image quality found in the EOS-1Ds Mark II.
Highly durable yet elegantly refined, the body of the EOS 5D can be
handled with remarkable ease. It features a highly rigid magnesium alloy
exterior (including the Battery Grip BG-E4), a solid stainless steel
internal chassis, and a mirror box of high-strength engineering plastic.
Balance is effortlessly maintained from the redesigned grip to the top of
a Speedlite flash unit. With a front groove on the grip for the middle
finger to the enhanced metallic feel of the Mode Dial, this camera
assures greater stability at every point.
Extremely Durable High-Speed Shutter
High Speed DIGIC II Imaging Engine
The DIGIC II processes massive data from the large CMOS sensor at
extremely high speed for photos of exceptional quality and definition.
This accelerated performance contributes to highly responsive,
user-friendly operation, including a fast continuous shooting speed.
Color reproduction is extremely natural and details are incredibly
precise, especially with gradations in the highlight areas. Such processing
efficiency also keeps power consumption minimal.
Equipped with an extremely fast and highly durable shutter developed
especially to match the EOS 5D’s full-frame 35mm CMOS sensor.
The high-torque shutter-cocking mechanism is rated to 100,000 shots,
attaining speeds from 1/8000 sec. to 30 sec. and bulb. The unit’s flash
synchronization (X-sync) function uses an optically detected, contactless
switch instead of a mechanical one, which contributes to high durability
and reliability when a Speedlite is used and yields an X-sync shutter
speed of 1/200 sec.
Full-Frame Imaging Sensor
High Performance
◆ 9-point AF sensor with 6 Assist AF points
provides speedy and precise focus detection
plus enlarged subject coverage. With an
extra 6 AF assist points added to the spot
metering circle, the EOS 5D enables highly
detailed focusing around the center of an
image in AI Servo AF mode. In addition,
three AF points work with f/2.8 or faster
lenses for enhanced precision.
Historically, full frame digital sensors were reserved only for the very top end of Digital SLR
lines. The EOS 5D is the 3rd camera in the EOS Digital SLR line to use a full-frame sensor, eliminating the lens conversion factor so that lenses function as they would on a 35mm camera. With
a 12.8 Megapixel CMOS sensor, the 5D produces a large file with enough information to reduce
electronic distortions out of the camera. Besides being a welcome feature to wide-angle enthusiasts, the sensor also realizes the full potential of Canon’s tilt-shift lenses. Add the choice of 3 focusing screens, including one with grid lines, and the EOS 5D is the perfect camera for creating
fast, huge digital architectural photos

10.1-Megapixel High-Speed
Digital SLR Camera
Redesigned and re-engineered from the ground up, the EOS-1D Mark III is the
“must have” DSLR for professionals. Years in development, nearly every component
has been re-engineered to create a powerful, professional tool with unprecedented
capabilities. While its predecessor, the EOS-1D Mark IIN, has been a favorite among
sports photographers, the vastly improved features and performance of the EOS-1D
Mark III make it an excellent choice for a wide range of professional applications,
including wedding, studio, wildlife, press and sports photography.
10.1 megapixel CMOS sensor combined with significantly improved noise control results
in outstanding image quality. It incorporates new autofocus and metering systems for even
better performance— e.g., greater tracking accuracy with moving subjects and superior low-light capabilities. A new control
interface makes it easier than ever to access the camera’s expanded feature set and obtain the desired results. Totally
re-engineered image processing and recording systems includes Dual DIGIC III Image Processors operating in tandem to
deliver dramatic improvements in both image quality and camera responsiveness. Innovative “pro”-oriented operating
features result in greater working speed, convenience, and dependability. Last, the superb, all-new, all-metal body (including
the mirror box) is designed for heavy-duty use but is lighter in weight for easier camera handling.
◆ 10.1 million pixels are more than enough
for 13 x 19-˝prints, output directly without
interpolation, at 200ppi. Megapixels alone,
however, do not determine image quality.
While maintaining the same APS-H size
sensor area (with 1.3x lens conversion
factor), the new sensor boasts significant
design improvements that further reduce
digital noise and expand the useful ISO
range. Specifically, the 1D Mark III exhibits
50% less shadow noise than it’s predecessor.
The sensor also enables Live View shooting.
Dual DIGIC III Processors
◆ Canon's Digic III Image Processor sets new
standards for picture detail, natural color
reproduction, and processing speed.
Moreover, the 1D Mark III uses not one, but
Dual DIGIC III Image Processors operating
in parallel to provide even greater data
bandwidth. The resulting imaging engine
handles the huge amount of data from the
10.1-megapixel sensor with tremendous speed.
Card write speeds are faster, noise control is
significantly better, and camera responsiveness has been even further improved.
Revolutionary not Evolutionary
The EOS-1 designation has always been reserved for Canon’s top-of-the-line, “no-holds-barred”
professional SLR cameras. The EOS-1 series consistently represented the pinnacle of film SLR
camera technologies, and, as the world transitioned to digital, no less was expected of Canon’s
EOS-1D series. Canon innovation has more than met the challenges of the digital era. And today,
Canon EOS Digital SLR cameras are the number one choice of professional photographers all
over the world. The rapid pace of technological development has made the periodic introduction
of refined, evolutionary “new” camera models a necessity. So, it would be easy to mistakenly
conclude that the new EOS-1D Mark III is yet another update to the impressive lineage. The
truth is that everything about this camera—especially those features and performance areas most
important to professionals—is more akin to revolution than evolution.
Highlight Tone Priority
◆ An outstanding new feature of
the 1D Mark
III is the Highlight Tone Priority mode,
which is activated via a Custom Function.
When activated, it employs sophisticated
processing algorithms to preserve greater
detail in image highlight areas— a
perennial problem for digital photographers, especially those who work in bright
sunlight or contrasty studio lighting.
◆ Highlight Tone Priority actually expands
the available range of capture in the
highlights, yet it exacts no penalty in
shooting speed nor burst rate. The
benefits accrue to photographers who
shoot RAW images as well as those who
rely on in-camera processing.
◆ Highlight Tone Priority is a win-win
proposition for nearly all working
professionals. A sports photographer
shooting white baseball uniforms in bright
sunlight stands to benefit as much as a
nature photographer shooting winter snow
scenes or a wedding photographer seeking
to preserve detail in the bride’s dress.
New Viewfinder
◆ Canon engineers understand the importance
of the viewfinder, especially in a professional
camera. It must, after all, provide you with
all the information necessary to successfully
capture the decisive moment. Therefore, for
the EOS-1D Mark III, Canon developed an
entirely new optical system, employing a
larger pentaprism for higher viewfinder
magnification. The viewfinder image is
clearer, sharper, and easier to see.
◆ The viewfinder provides full 100% coverage,
which means what you see is what you get—
no more, no less. In other words, the view in
the finder precisely matches the captured
image area. The finder also features an
approximate magnification of 0.76x and a
20mm eyepoint.
Blazing Shooting Speed
and Near-Instant Response
◆ Fast response is desirable not just for sports or action photography.
It can make the difference between capturing or missing that
once-in-a-lifetime shot in just about any photographic genre.
With its astounding 10 fps maximum continuous shooting speed,
the EOS-1D Mark III is the fastest digital SLR ever. Even more
remarkable when you consider the sheer amount of data
movement associated with a 10.1 million pixel sensor.
◆ Incredibly responsive, it has a lag time of
only 55ms (reducible to
40ms via Custom Function). At shutter speeds of 1/60 second and
higher, the viewfinder blackout time is an ultra-short 80ms.
◆ It capture up to 110 consecutive full-resolution JPEG images or up
to 30 RAW images in a single continuous burst (at shooting speeds
up to the full 10 fps).
◆ The 1D Mark III has a high-speed shutter up to 1/8000 second.
◆ Includes -3 to +1 dioptric adjustment, as
Flash sync speed is 1/300 second with Canon Speedlites. The
continuous shooting rate can be freely changed using Custom
Functions. The high-speed range provides choices from 2 fps to
10 fps. The low-speed range provides speeds from 1.3 fps to 9 fps.
is an eyepiece shutter (with more readily
visible gray blades).
3˝ LCD Monitor with Live View
◆ The viewfinder includes a full-time ISO
indication as well as icons for metering
mode in use, battery charge level (six steps),
and JPEG and/or RAW recording.
◆ The 1D Mark III is equipped with the new
Laser Matte Ec-C IV focusing screen, which
provides improved optical performance.
Background blur appears more natural, and
graininess and flare are reduced. At the same
time, the finder is brighter, especially at the
edges and corners.
◆ As with all EOS-1 series SLR cameras,
the 1D Mark III enables the professional
photographer to choose from among a wide
variety of Ec focusing screens. Currently,
there are 11 optional screens available.
◆ As before, the mirror can be locked up to
avoid vibration during shooting. A new
feature provides the option to keep the
mirror in the raised position until the user
presses the SET button to lower it. This
allows multiple shots to be taken with the
mirror raised.
In addition to it’s incredibly huge 3˝ LCD monitor,
the 1D Mark III also features a sophisticated
Live View shooting mode, which enables the
photographer to use the LCD monitor as a
real-time viewfinder. When the Live View
mode is enabled, the reflex mirror is locked up
and the shutter opens (manual focusing only).
The image output from the CMOS sensor will
be displayed in real time on the LCD monitor
at 100% coverage.
A selectable portion of the image can be
magnified by 5x or 10x to aid in precise manual
focusing. Focus, exposure check, composing,
and shooting can all be accomplished in this
mode. It is very convenient for tripod-mounted
shooting, macro work, and other situations in which it is a physical
strain to keep the eye at the viewfinder. The Live View image can also be
displayed on a TV monitor connected via video-out. This feature is ideal
for showing images as they are composed to clients and portrait subjects.
Studio photographers will also appreciate the PC Live View capability,
which enables the image at the sensor to be displayed on a computer
monitor. With Canon EOS Utility software installed on the computer, the
user can check and adjust focus and composition in real time. You can
even fire the camera remotely from the computer. Connection between
the camera and computer can be via USB cable or, with the optional
WFT-E2A Wireless Transmitter, via wireless LAN. The wireless option
enables all Live View capabilities at a distance of 150´ or more.

More Versatility
New EOS Autofocus Technology
◆ Even more flexibility can now be achieved
with external storage media, connected via
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface, to the optional
WFT-E2A Wireless Transmitter. Select
external bus powered USB hard drive, for
example, can be connected in this manner
and recognized by the camera as a storage
drive. Such a drive can be accessed in the
same way as an installed memory card.
Images can be shot and copied on the
connected hard drive as they are being taken.
The EOS-1D Mark III incorporates new Canon autofocus (AF) technologies that bring
about improvement in key performance areas for most professional users. The area-type AF
system has 19 selectable high-precision cross-type points plus 26 assist points for a total of
45 AF points. The cross-type sensors offer added precision when shooting with f/2.8 and
faster lenses. The superior speed, precision, and low-light sensitivity of this new system will
be especially noticeable when shooting with f/2.8 zoom lenses.
◆ At first glance, the view through the finder may appear to be the same as previous EOS-1D
series cameras. The AF system used in the 1D Mark III, however, is of an entirely new
architecture and operates differently. Note that, for the first time, cross-type points are
now available at the outer edges of the sensor oval as seen in the viewfinder.
◆ Extensive file naming options lets you choose
◆ The 26 additional assist points enable the user to expand the coverage area of
any manually
selected primary AF point. An assist point can be added to either side of a selected AF
point, or a ring of six AF points can be activated around a manually selected point. Assist
points can be added to any of the 19 selectable primary AF points. Moreover, Assist
points can be used not only in the AI Servo AF mode but also in the One-Shot AF mode.
a factory-set 4-character prefix (unique to
each camera) or define a unique 4-character
prefix of their own choosing for file naming.
The user can also define a 3-character prefix,
saving the fourth character position for
letter code (assigned by the camera) that
identifies image size setting. This enables
photographers to quickly identify image size
by file name instead of having to open the
files in a viewing application.
◆ AF Micro-adjustment is another example of
the flexibility
and power of the Mark III’s AF system. If a critical
photographer ever finds that his system seems to
consistently focus slightly in front of or behind the
intended subject, the AF Micro-adjustment (C.Fn III - 07)
allows the user to adjust this in fine increments to put the
sharpest plane of focus back where they’d like it to be.
It even allows different adjustments for up to 20 different Canon EF lenses if necessary.
◆ Users can add aspect ratio information to
their image files. This facilitates automatic
cropping (via the included DPP software) to
8 x 10˝, 5 x 7˝, 3 x 4˝, 10 x 12˝, 6 x 7˝, and
even 6 x 6˝ square proportions.
◆ The EOS-1D Mark III uses an entirely separate AF processing unit, dedicated solely to
AF operations, including driving the lens. This dedicated CPU design performs AF
computations three times faster than with the previous EOS-1D Mark II N. The faster
AF detection and computation make it possible to achieve it’s 10 fps maximum shooting
speed with full AI Servo tracking.
◆ The 1D Mark III offers the widest ISO
range of any digital SLR in the world.
The standard range is 100–3200, and the
extended ISO range is a remarkable
50–6400. The low-noise performance at
high ISO settings makes the entire range
usable in real-world shooting situations.
◆ The new area-type AF sensor features increased pixel sensitivity, which delivers markedly
improved focusing performance in low-light situations. Compared to the 1D Mark IIN,
the new Mark III offers AF sensitivity one full stop better in dark scene areas.
◆ Overall, the new AF system is better able to detect and react to a grossly out-of-focus
image, more quickly driving the lens to proper focus. In addition, important new Custom
Function control over AF gives the photographer numerous ways to tailor camera AF
operation to specific shooting needs. The user can, for example, quickly switch between
the inner and outer nine primary AF points. The new AF system can better adapt to
sudden changes when tracking moving subjects, and the photographer can control how
the camera responds to events, such as the sudden full press of the shutter release button.
◆ The analog signal output of
the imaging
sensor must be converted to digital data
before it can be processed by the DIGIC III
engine. Whereas earlier EOS Digital SLR
cameras used 12-bit A/D (analog-to-digital)
converters, the 1D Mark III employs new
14-bit converters. This ensures smoother
tonal transitions and more natural gradations.
◆ Up to five Custom White Balance settings
can now be stored in-camera for instant
recall. Each can also be given a user-defined
name (selected and applied right on the
camera’s LCD monitor), so there’s no
guessing about which Custom WB setting is
which. Beyond that, up to five additional
“Personal” White Balance settings can be
created and saved on a computer using
supplied software and uploaded to the
57 Custom Functions and ‘Silent Mode’
Custom Function set now includes the “Personal Function” of previous EOS-1D series cameras.
All functions, therefore, are now in-camera and available at all times. More than a dozen entirely
new or modified Custom Functions have been added. Furthermore, all Custom Functions have
been reorganized into four groups for easier, more intuitive menu access.
◆ The 1D Mark III has a built-in “silent mode” which is extremely useful whenever quieter shooting
is required. This mode reduces the camera’s sound level as it re-cocks the shutter after a picture
is taken. Furthermore, if you keep the shutter button fully depressed after taking a picture, the
silent mode delays the “advance” until the finger is lifted off – allowing you to very discreetly
shoot in situations where noise might be a problem. This mode can be set as one of the camera’s
Drive options (indicated by an icon on the top LCD panel) for quick access when needed.
Dual Memory Card Slots
EOS Integrated Cleaning System
◆ Separate CF and SD card slots immeasurably
enhance the camera’s versatility. The SD card
slot is fully compatible with high-capacity
SDHC cards. These two card slots can be
used in combination in a variety of ways to
improve, performance, capacity, convenience,
and data security:
— Overall recording speed to memory cards
has been significantly improved.
— Images can be recorded to both cards at the
same quality settings so that an instant
backup is created.
— Images can be recorded to both cards at
different quality settings… and, now, the
quality setting can be freely selected from
all available choices for either card.
— The two cards can be used in an automatic
switchover mode so that should one card
become filled to capacity during shooting,
image recording continues without delay
onto the second card.
— An Image Copying mode enables images
already recorded on one card to be copied
to the second card. Entire folders can be
copied if desired.
— Should the card door be opened while
images are being recorded, the recording
will not be interrupted. Data will continue
to be written, and a warning message will
appear on the LCD monitor.
The EOS-1D Mark III incorporates the latest version of Canon’s
advanced EOS Integrated Cleaning System, which effectively deals
with the problem of dust accumulation on the imaging sensor
using a three-pronged approach:
1. Avoiding dust in the first place. The IR-cut filter, which is the first
structure in front of the CMOS sensor, is both specially treated with
anti-static coatings to resist dust, and furthermore is electronically
grounded to minimize static electricity buildup. Beyond that, special attention was paid to the
shutter and other components, to insure that the camera does not generate tiny particles that
could become attached to the IR-cut filter.
2. Dust that settles on the front of the sensor unit is removed via a Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit
that uses ultrasonic vibration. The cleaning takes about 3.5 seconds, and it is automatically
activated whenever the camera is powered on or off. The cleaning routine can also be activated
manually via the menu system. The shutter release button always has overriding priority;
hence, the cleaning system never hinders camera readiness. The ultrasonically removed dust
adheres to a special collecting collar positioned around the sensor.
3. Using software to “map out” any dust that might still remain. By photographing a plain white
subject at infinity focus, the user can acquire Dust Delete Data identifying the position of any
dust particles remaining on the sensor area. The data is appended to the image file and can be
used by Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 3.0 to automatically erase dust spots.
Unprecedented Reliability and Durability
The entire body of the EOS-1D Mark III, including its internal chassis and mirror box, is
made of an advanced magnesium alloy. Exceptionally strong and rigid, this alloy ensures
dependable camera performance. At the same time, it makes the camera lighter for
improved handling and maneuverability. Extensive weatherproofing ensures superior
reliability, even when shooting in harsh environments. Rubber gaskets are used at nearly
every joint and seam— including around the battery compartment cover, memory card
door, and hot shoe—to keep out moisture and dust. The 1D Mark III features an
improved heavy-duty shutter that has been durability tested to 300,000 cycles—the
highest in all autofocus SLR cameras. The camera thus ensures long service life.
Data Security Kit OSK-E3
Canon’s optional
advanced data
software kit
for Windows
consists of a
USB card reader/writer, a dedicated original
Data Security Card, and software.
Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E2A
The optional Wireless Transmitter WFT-E2A offers many new features that the professional
photographer will find indispensable. While it retains the best features of the WFT-E1A such as
an Ethernet (hard wired) connection and 802.11 b and g, it now is much easier to set up and use.
◆ The system can verify the originality and
integrity of image data. It can also identify
specific data elements (image pixels, EXIF
text, GPS info, etc.) that have been altered.
◆ Photographers can now encrypt their
image files to prevent unauthorized viewing
or wireless theft. Encrypted images can be
viewed only on personal computers
equipped with the necessary OSK-E3
decoding engine.
Utilizing the onboard connection wizard the WFT-E2A can connect in three ways. In HTML
Server mode up to three users can securely log in to the camera to browse and download selected
images with a standard web browser. PTP connectivity allows the user to easily connect a single
camera to a computer. Of course, FTP transfer is still offered, with simplified connection interface, for secure transmission to a computer on your network or over the internet. USB 2.0
Hi-Speed host capability allows GPS data from many popular receivers to be embedded in EXIF
data as well as allowing the photographer to shoot directly or back up image data
to many commercially available bus powered external storage devices.
The WFT-E2A is much smaller and lighter than its predecessor, allowing full
access to the cameras external sockets while maintaining the weather resistance
and durability of the camera body and offering faster communication between
the camera and the transmitter. It has a small built in antenna capable of wireless
communication at distances up to 150 feet. It is powered by the camera’s battery
reducing the extra equipment the photographer needs to carry.

Speedlite Cord
Off-Camera Shoe Cord 2 (CASC2OC)
Allows you to use your Speedlite off
camera (up to 2´) while maintaining
all on-camera flash functions......49.95
Canon’s flagship Speedlite, the 580EX II is a powerful flash with a maximum guide number of
191 at ISO 100 in feet (at 105mm), it offers more consistent color, and enhanced controls that all
photographers, especially those who shoot digital, will find useful.
It is compatible with Canon’s E-TTL II auto exposure, which utilizes subject distance and
other information to automatically modify flash power, when it used with a compatible Canon
camera and lens. Ideal for photographers that shoot high contrast or reflective subjects, like
those encountered in wedding photography.
For intuitive control, the 580EX II’s control dial, SET button and high-speed sync/shutter curtain
synchronization button put all major functions at the photographer’s fingertips. A new AF-assist
beam is better matched to the different focusing point arrangements of various EOS SLRs.
Flash head swivels 180° in both directions, while a single release lock controls tilt and swivel
adjustments. Wide-angle diffuser covers a 14mm focal length, and a catchlight reflector provides
optimal lighting quality during bounce-flash photography. For convenience, 14 custom functions

The Canon Digital Rebel XT/XTi, EOS 20D and EOS 30D incorporate APS-C sized sensors, which gives
the focal length of EF-S lenses a 1.6x magnification effect over 35mm film format. Therefore, the focal
length of an 18-55mm, for example, is equivalent to 29-88mm in the 35mm film format. The
more compact size of the APS-C sensor means the camera’s reflex mirror can also be smaller,
making it possible to bring the back of the lens closer to the image sensor. The ‘S’ in the EF-S
nomenclature stands for ‘short back focus’, which describes the system. By optimizing the
EF-S lens coatings, Canon's engineers have effectively minimized the chance of flare and
ghosting which are more prone to occur with digital cameras than with film cameras. The
coatings reduce reflections off the rear of the lens to deliver crisp, undistorted digital images.
The drive pattern of the lenses has been tailored to specifically match that of the Digital Rebel
XT/XTi, EOS 20D and EOS 30D , for quiet, precise and fast auto focus.
The lenses incorporates an EMD (electromagnetic diaphragm), which in the widest apertures
employs an almost perfectly circular barrel aperture. This provides the best blur effect in situations where the photographer is
deliberately working with a small depth of field to isolate the subject.
While the Digital Rebel XT/XTi, EOS 20D and EOS 30D are compatible with the more than 60 EF lenses, the EF-S lenses will
only fit them. A white lens mount index (in addition to the traditional red marking) differentiates these lens from other EF
lenses and a rear rubber ring prevents any damage in the event that an inadvertent attempt is made to mount the EF-S lens
on any other camera.
EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM
A thoroughly modern design that's optimized for the EOS 20D/30D and Digital Rebel XT/XTi, the
EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro is equivalent to a 96mm lens on a 35mm camera, with a floating optical
system that can focus down to full life-size (1:1) magnification. Inner focusing, driven by a silent and
powerful ring-type USM, means the lens’ overall length never changes during focus. This lens is a
wonderful multi-purpose lens that's equally at home shooting macro shots, portraits or available-light
photos. Filter size is 62mm .................................................................................IMP. 374.95 / USA 384.95
EF-12 II and EF-25 II Extension Tubes
(CA )
Extension tubes are commonly used for macro photography and sometimes for closeup portraits.
The result of using extension tubes is that the distance from the back of the lens to the film surface is
longer, which means you can take photographs at shorter distances to the subject. Fully compatible
with Canon Digital EF-S lenses, as well as standard photo EF and TS-E lenses, the Extension Tube
EF 12 II is especially suited for close-focusing with wide-angle lenses. Compatible with all lenses,
except 15mm f/2.8 fisheye, 14mm f/2.8L and MP-E 65mm f/2.8. The Extension Tube EF 25 II is
recommended for lenses with a focal length of 50mm and up (EF-S 18-55mm) can be used at
middle and tele zoom settings).

EF lenses fuse state-of-the-art
electronics with mechanical precision,
and optical excellence. The fully
electronic EF lens mount is unique
among 35mm SLR cameras, operating
silently with unmatched reliability
due to the complete elimination of
mechanical couplings. Every EF
lens contains its own custom-designed
autofocus motor and microprocessor.
Many utilize Canon’s exclusive
Ultrasonic Motor (USM) technology.
Canon is also a leader in the use of aspherical lens elements, fluorite crystal, Ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass and other
advanced optical technologies. Uniformly high optical performance results from the extensive use of exclusive Canon-developed
manufacturing techniques in Canon’s own factories, the world’s largest for 35mm cameras and lenses.
Fully Electronic Mount System
In designing the EF lens mount, Canon engineers
gave a lot more than just a way to quickly attach a
lens to a camera body. The fully electronic mount
system has none of the shock, operational noise,
abrasion, slow response or design restrictions
related to linkage mechanisms used to transfer
data. Instead, about 50 items of information are
exchanged as digital signals between the lens and
camera in real time. This enables high-speed and
precision control as well as improved reliability.
◆ Quiet, high-speed, high-precision AF from
fisheye to super telephoto since the optimum
actuator can be incorporated into each lens.
◆ Quiet, high-precision aperture, or digital
diaphragm control.
Inner and Rear Focusing
An inner focusing lens has the focusing lens group(s) in front of the diaphragm, while a
rear focusing lens has the focusing lens group(s) behind. Both systems allow the focusing
lens group to be small. This minimizes the load on the actuator which drives the
autofocus. In turn, the AF speed is faster. The whole optical system can also be made
more compact. And, since the lens doesn’t rotate during focusing, the effects of a circular
polarizer or gel filter remain intact.
Floating System
Ordinary lenses (non-zoom) are designed to give the best results when the correction
of aberrations is most effective. This is usually at the most commonly-used focusing
distances. At other focusing distances especially at the closest focusing distance,
aberrations tend to appear. Canon’s floating system suppresses aberrations at close
focusing distances. The system adjusts the gap between certain lens elements in
correspondence to the focusing distance, effectively correcting the aberration. The result
is high image quality with aberrations suppressed at all focusing distances.
◆ Allows the aperture to be stopped down to preview
depth of field and helps increase shooting speed
by keeping the aperture stopped down during
continuous shooting sequences.
◆ Permits fully automatic diaphragm control with
Canon tilt-shift TS-E lenses.
Built-In Motor and EMD
EF lenses have a built-in AF motor for driving energy with lower transmission loss. The
lenses also have an EMD (Electromagnetic Diaphragm) to electronically control the
aperture with unmatched precision. The aperture can be set either with an electronic
dial or with the electronic pulse signal sent according to the exposure reading.
◆ Using variable-aperture zoom lenses, any manually
set f/stop (except for maximum aperture) is
maintained throughout the zoom range.
◆ Automatic compensation and display of
change in the lens’ effective F-number when an
extender is mounted between lens and camera.
◆ Self-test system using the lens’ built-in micro-
computer warns of malfunctions through the
camera’s LCD to help ensure high reliability.
Full-Time Manual Focusing
EF lenses have very high AF precision, quickly achieving optimum focus in almost any
shooting situation. Most are also equipped with Canon’s full-time manual focusing mode
to make picture-taking even more flexible. Lenses with this feature let you switch to
manual while in AF mode—overriding the autofocus mode. You can keep looking through
the viewfinder and touch up the focus manually without switching the focus mode switch.
Two type of manual focusing: Electronic manual where the rotation amount of the
focusing ring is detected and the focusing motor is driven electronically. Or, mechanical
focusing, where the rotation of the focusing ring adjusts the focus mechanically.
Image Stabilizer
Canon has developed a series of truly unique lenses equipped with an
Image Stabilizer (IS) function that let you capture photos that would
otherwise be blurred due to camera movement, greatly expanding the
range of handheld-camera photography.
To get sharp images when taking handheld pictures, the general rule of
thumb is to set the shutter speed to 1/1 over the focal length, or the
closest available setting on your camera. (i.e. 1/60 sec. with a 50mm lens,
1/250 sec. with a 200mm lens, 1/500 sec. with a 500mm lens and so on.)
Generally, this is no problem, if all your pictures are taken outdoors on a
bright, sunny day. But blurred pictures due to camera shake become
more of a problem when taking pictures in dim light - at dusk, indoors,
on a cloudy day. And the chance of getting blurred pictures is greater
when using longer focal length lenses that magnify the image and any
associated movement.
To overcome these problems, Canon developed the world’s first SLR lens
with a built-in image stabilizer. Electronic signals emitted by vibrationdetecting gyro sensors are used to move the image-stabilizing lens group
in parallel along the optical axis, providing clear picture quality at all
times. Actual shooting tests result in improvement equivalent to using a
shutter speed two steps faster. In many shooting situations where you are
not allowed to use a tripod or flash, such as art museums and concert
halls, Canon IS lenses are your ticket to sharper pictures.
Ultrasonic Motors (USM)
In order to achieve critical autofocus, the elements within a camera
lens have to move quickly, quietly, and with exacting precision. To
accomplish this, Canon developed the world’s first lens-based Ultrasonic
Motor (USM). Based on a totally new technology, the motor spins by
ultrasonic oscillation energy. In effect, instead of a large, noisy drivetrain system, electronic vibrations created by a piezoelectric ceramic
element power the mechanical action of the lens. In a very broad
comparison, it's like the difference between a mechanical watch with
gears and springs and quartz-timed watch movement. Therefore, torque
is constant and start and stop functions virtually instantaneous.
By making the autofocus operation almost inaudible and by accelerating
the autofocus speed, this type of motor greatly expands the shooting
possibilities for Canon photographers. There is virtually no whining
noise as the lens focuses to distract the subject or draw attention to the
photographer. Most important for the photographer in the field, the
motor draws minimal power so the camera batteries last longer.
Ring-Type USM
Micro USM
You’ll find two types of Canon Ultrasonic Motors
in the camera lens system, each optimized for
maximum efficiency and effectiveness. Ring-type
USM-equipped lenses, found in large aperture and
super telephoto designs, allow manual focusing
without switching out of the auto mode. It’s a
direct-drive system that provides all the above
advantages. Micro USM designs bring the
performance benefits of Canon's USM technology
to a wide assortment of affordable EF lenses.
Extremely compact and light, this USM is even
used on lenses as small as the EF 28-90mm and
EF 22-55mm.
Whenever you have an image in mind, you must choose a lens
which can put that image on film. And whatever that image may
be, you can be sure that Canon has the lens you need. Whether it
is a 15mm fisheye or a 600mm super telephoto, all Canon lenses
feature the finest materials (especially the L-series lenses) and
technologies. They include fluorite, UD glass, aspherical lenses,
lens-based Ultrasonic Motors, inner and rear focusing, Image
Stabilizers, and a fully-electronic interface.
L-Series Lenses
Canon lenses are renowned for
their performance and optical
quality. And no lenses have a
better reputation among
professional photographers
than Canon’s L-series lenses.
Identifiable by a distinctive red
ring around their outer barrel,
these lenses use special optical
technologies including Ultra-low Dispersion UD glass, Super Low
Dispersion glass, Fluorite and Aspherical elements to truly push the
optical envelope.
L-series telephoto lenses utilize Canon’s UD glass to minimize the
effect of chromatic aberration, sometimes called color fringing.
UD glass provides outstanding contrast and sharpness in lenses like the
70-200 f/2.8L IS and 300mm f/4.0L IS. Even more effective are
fluorite elements, used in high-end super-telephoto lenses like the
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS and 400mm f/2.8L IS. A single fluorite element
has the corrective power of two UD glass elements, which gives these
L-series lenses their spectacular performance.
Wide-angle lenses and fast normal focal-length lenses often suffer from
another optical problem, spherical aberration, which causes an overall
softening and optical “smearing” of the image. Canon has developed
four different manufacturing technologies to produce Aspherical lens
elements, which combat this problem. Aspherical optics, which have an
extremely precise variable curvature of one or both sides of a lens element, also allow more compact lens designs and permit lighter lenses
with fewer elements. Combined with Canon’s exclusive multi-coating
technology, Super Spectra Coating, and the attention paid to details
such as anti-reflective material inside of lens barrels, L-series lenses
virtually eliminate internal ghosting and flare.
Many EF telephoto lenses are white, to reduce the amount of internal
heat build-up during long shooting in bright sunlight. And the new
Image Stabilized super-telephoto L-series lenses add extensive
dust-and moisture-resistant seals and gaskets, enabling pros to keep
shooting in the worst conditions.
Canon L-series EF lenses are designed and built to meet the needs of
the most demanding professional photographers. Their superb
optics enable pros and advanced amateurs to have lenses that are the
absolute pinnacle of optical performance, and enable lens/speed
combinations with professional performance simply not attainable
using traditional optical technology.

The fastest autofocus lens in its class, the EF50mm f/1.2L USM lens complements full-frame
cameras like the EOS 5D and EOS-1Ds Mark II while delivering beautiful results on APS-C/H
sized sensor models as well. Every aspect of this lens exudes professional quality from its wide
72mm filter diameter to its dust and moisture sealed construction. A high refraction glass
molded aspherical lens element helps to minimize spherical aberration, which is crucial in
order to provide fine detail and maximum image quality from corner to corner, even when the
lens is used wide open. Full frame digital camera users will especially appreciate the benefits of
the 50mm focal length, when shooting waist-up portraits while maintaining appropriate subject
distance at a wedding.
The large maximum aperture of f/1.2 allows this lens to produce shallow depth of field that
softens the background and makes subjects “pop” out of a portrait. Photographers can also take
advantage of higher shutter speeds to shoot in lower light and help prevent blurring caused by subject movement or camera shake. In
addition to a large aperture, the lens also has blazingly fast autofocus speed and response time, thanks in part to Canon’s ring-type
Ultrasonic Motor (USM), which quietly drives the lens. A full-time manual focus feature allows photographers to fine-tune the sharpness
of their images, even when the lens is set for autofocus.
Canon designed the EF50mm f/1.2L USM to deliver the best possible optical quality while being tough enough to meet the needs of
demanding photographers. Eight lens elements in six groups provide high resolution, while advanced coating suppresses flare and
ghosting. A glass molded (GMO) aspherical element ensures maximum image quality by reducing spherical aberration and linear
distortion. Dust and moisture resistant components in the lens mount, switches, and focus ring help to protect the lens in a wide variety
of shooting conditions. Filter size is 72mm. Includes ES-78 lens hood and LP1214 soft case ...............................IMP. 1399.95 / USA 1399.95

employs Canon’s famous rear-focus
telephoto optical design to deliver
outstanding picture quality throughout
its entire shooting range - even at
middle and close distances. This lens
also uses two ultra-low dispersion
(UD) glass elements to ensure maximum
image sharpness and accurate color
fidelity; and Canon’s advanced
ultrasonic focusing motor (USM) and
rear focusing design for silent, high
speed autofocusing. Smooth manual
focusing is accomplished through
Canon’s mechanical manual focusing
system and wide rubber focusing ring
for easy adjustments. Full-time manual
focusing lets you switch to manual even
in AF mode. Compatible with 1.4x and
2x EF extenders. It includes an LP1222
lens case and an ET-83BII lens hood.
Filter size is 72mm.

With the ability to see surpassing the human
eye, a super telephoto lens has the ability to
transform an ordinary scene into an
extraordinary one. It can compress images
and make them look as if they come from
another dimension. It opens up new realms of
photographic expression. All Canon EF super
telephoto lenses are L-series to provide the
highest quality, while the USM delivers quiet
and high-speed autofocusing.
EF 600mm f/4L IS USM
◆ All except the 300/4L and 400/5.6L feature Focus Preset (FP).
With FP you can set the desired focusing distance in memory and
later instantly focus the lens at that distance. Normal shooting and
focusing is possible while FP has been set.
◆ All except the 300/4L and 400/5.6L are highly resistant to dust and
water. Their switch panel, exterior seams, and drop-in filter compartments have rubber linings.
◆ All (except 400/5.6L) have a built-in Image Stabilizer because no
matter how great the lens is, camera shake can spoil the shot. Optical shake is detected by gyro sensors which provide the data necessary to shift the image-stabilizing lens group in parallel to
neutralize the shake. This increases usable shutter speed range by
up to two full stops for hand-held shooting. There are two IS
modes: one for normal image stabilization, one for panned shots.

to correct chromatic aberrations. Fluorite has abnormally low
refraction and low dispersion characteristics which optical glass
can’t achieve.
◆ In addition to fluorite, they each incorporate two UD (Ultra-Low
Dispersion) glass elements whose properties nearly match those
of fluorite (the effect of two UD-glass elements is equivalent to one
fluorite). The 400/5.6L has a Super UD-glass element which gives
almost the same effect as one fluorite element.
◆ All except the 300/4L and 400/5.6L have an ‘AF Stop’ feature. If
something passes between the camera and subject, the AF-Stop
button momentarily locks the AF to prevent the focus from
shifting to the obstruction passing by. After it is gone, the focus is
maintained so you can quickly resume shooting.

Understanding Diffractive Optics: Glass lens elements refract, or bend lightwaves as they pass through it to form an image. Canon uses
multiple elements and special glass to keep the lightwaves like a pinpoint instead of spreading them into the rainbow of color you see when
light passes through a prism. To diffract lightwaves means that the ray goes through a change in direction before passing through the lens.
The change in direction is caused by a diffraction grating — very fine parallel groves or slits on the surface. Canon uses two single-layer
diffractive optical elements whose diffraction gratings are bonded together face-to-face. The diffraction that occurs with Multi-Layer
Diffractive optical elements actually corrects the optical system’s chromatic aberrations and improve the image formation performance.
Why is Canon changing the tried and true physics of lens design? In terms of design and manufacture, it allows them to create lenses that are
shorter and lighter than comparable refractive optical systems. The 400mm f/4 DO IS USM lens is approximately 27-percent shorter and
36-percent lighter in weight than a conventional 400mm f/4 telephoto lens would be. Image quality of Canon’s DO lenses are comparable to
the L-Series, offering photographers very high performance.

With a Canon TS-E lens, you can control the angle of the plane of focus and the picture’s perspective.
The effects of large-format camera movements can be obtained with TS-E lenses for EOS cameras.
Although manual focusing is required, automatic aperture control enables auto exposure and auto
exposure bracketing. The tilt and shift axes intersect at a 90° angle. With their tilt and shift
movements, these lenses further expand photographic possibilities. Tilt movements alter the angle of the
plane of focus between the lens and film plane, allowing you to obtain a wide depth of field even at the
maximum aperture and still keep the entire subject in focus. Shift movements move the lens’ optical
axis in parallel, correcting the trapezoidal effect seen in pictures taken of tall objects such as buildings,
so that the subject does not look distorted.
Tilt Movements: If you want to bring the entire length of the hedge into focus, you could
use a wide-angle lens and a small
aperture to obtain a wide depth of field. With
tilt movements, you can achieve this wide
depth of field even at the maximum
aperture. By tilting the center of the TS-E lens
barrel, you can tilt the lens so that the plane
of focus is uniform on the film plane.
Shift Movements: Normally, when you point your camera
up at a tall building, the building will look slimmer toward
the top. It becomes trapezoidal. This perspective effect is
more pronounced with shorter lens focal lengths, distorting
the building even more. By altering the parallel position between the lens and the film plane with the TS-E lens, this
perspective effect can be corrected. With the camera’s film
plane set parallel to the building, shifting the lens upward
will obtain a more rectangular-looking building.

EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM
Offering incredible 11x zoom capability, the EF28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM combines Canon’s latest
optical glass, faster autofocus and a groundbreaking Image Stabilization system—so capturing incredible
images is a snap—even when the zoom is at max, the shutter speed is slow and the camera is handheld.
This 22-element L-series design lens features three ultra low dispersion (UD) glass elements that reduce
chromatic aberration, and three aspherical elements that reduce linear distortion and correct spherical
aberration during zooming (keeping image resolution and contrast high), together with superior lens
coatings that minimize reflection. Highly refined Image Stabilization (IS) system with shake-detecting
gyro sensors corrects up to three shutter speed steps for handheld photography. Additionally, IS remains
effective even when using a tripod, improving image quality by eliminating the effects of reflex mirror
vibration at slow shutter speeds. IS mode switches allow you to select for general stabilization or for
deliberate panning. IS is activated within 0.5 seconds of depressing the shutter halfway. Additionally, the
lens features a powerful, quick and silent ring-type Ultrasonic Motor and an inner focus system that
moves only the lens’ lighter elements during AF while keeping the front elements stationary.
Because of its extended range, the lens features a push-pull zoom, though it does have a zoom adjustment
ring that lets you loosen, tighten or lock the zoom control. It also permits close minimum focus from 2.3´
at all focal lengths, and is capable of filling the frame with a subject as small as 3.2 x 4.8˝ at the 300mm

EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM (CA7030045IS)
Compact, without compromising any image quality, the EF70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM is the second
EF lens to employ Diffractive Optics (DO) technology. Indeed, it’s three-layer diffractive element is far
better suited to zoom lenses and improves on the two-layer DO element used in the EF400mm f/4 DO IS
USM lens. Significantly smaller and lighter than conventional 70-300mm lenses, this zoom is approximately
the length and diameter of the 28-135mm IS lens. Equipped with image stabilization technology, the lens
provides up to three stops of effective shake reduction capability, equivalent to shooting handheld at 1/30
with the stability found on conventional lenses at 1/250. It also offers a choice of general stabilization and
deliberate panning. The IS system remains functional when the lens is used on a solid tripod, although
handheld usage is the norm thanks to its compact size. Compact, shake detection gyro sensors for
smoother control of IS optics, and compact zoom locking mechanism (locks the lens at its smallest
70mm setting and prevents lens “creeping” while camera is carried on a neck strap) also contribute to the
lens’ smaller, more comfortable size. Incorporates a larger, ring type Ultrasonic Motor that provides more power and torque than the
smaller Micro USM for faster autofocusing than equivalent lenses. In addition, a rear-group AF system moves the lighter and smaller lens
elements at the rear of the lens for focus, keeping the larger, front elements from rotating during AF or zoom operation. Minimum focus
is 4.6´ at all zoom settings and can fill the frame with a subject as small as 4.8 x 7.2˝ at the 300mm zoom setting. Includes a ET-65B lens

Haze UV-1 Filters
Lens Hoods
A great investment, UV-1 Haze filters will protect your valuable lenses from dust,
moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the
lens at all times for protection. They also have a very subtle warming effect, which can be
useful to counter the “cool” colors you sometimes get in bright sun or in shade.

12.3-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera
Taking digital photography to the next level, the FinePix S5 combines it’s
newly-developed Super CCD SR PRO with Fujifilm’s new RP (Real
Photo) Processor Pro to achieve outstanding, film-like results. The
Super CCD SR Pro uses a unique layout of 12.34 million pixels
and improvements in noise, dynamic range, color and tonality. A
low-pass filter ensures that moire and noise are kept to an absolute
minimum. The Real Photo Processor Pro ensures that the information
is handled in such a way to produce images that are beautifully
vibrant, with color recorded as the human eye sees it. The processor’s
two stages of noise reduction delivers an impeccably clean image, and
also permits light sensitivity up to ISO 3200 while achieving sharp,
low-noise images.
Add Nikon F-mount capability, Face Detection Technology, Film Simulation Mode with four “professional portrait” and
“Fujichrome modes, weatherproof seals, excellent ergonomics using a tough, professional magnesium alloy shell, and you have
the ideal camera for wedding, portrait and studio photographers as well as for outdoor and high endurance commercial
photography. A testament to it’s durability is the robust shutter mechanism which has been tested to exceed the key
benchmark of 100,000 cycles.
Real Photo Technology Pro
Fujifilm’s long experience in film photography and cutting-edge digital image processing have
crystallized in the ultimate image quality technology— ‘Real Photo Technology Pro’. This fusion
of the new Super CCD SR Pro and RP (Real Photo) Processor Pro realizes ultra-high resolution
with a superb S/N ratio, wider dynamic range and rich, smooth tonality—from brightest light to
the darkest shadows—for performance and image quality beyond even the wildest imagination
of professionals.
Super CCD SR Pro
RP (Real Photo)
Processor Pro
Emulating the composition of negative film,
the unique double-photodiode matrix of
Super CCD SR Pro consists of 6.17 million
larger ‘S’ pixels for main image information,
combined with 6.17 million smaller ‘R’ pixels
for bright area information. The large CCD
also achieves a dynamic range of 400%,
approaching that of negative film.
The redesigned Super CCD SR Pro sensor is
at the center of the camera’s performance.
However the Real Photo Processor Pro
ensures that the information is handled in
such a way to produce images that are
beautifully vibrant, with color recorded as
the human eye sees it.
The S5 Pro also delivers improvements in
noise, dynamic range, color and tonality.
Further improving the capability of the sensor,
an optimized optical low-pass filter enables
ultra-high resolution while ensuring that
moiré and noise are kept to an absolute minimum. Achieving both high resolution and
high S/N ration, it captures subjects in clear,
exquisite detail.
The processor’s two stages of noise reduction
will deliver an impeccably clean image, and
also permit light sensitivity up to ISO 3200
while achieving sharp, low-noise images. A
new dark noise reduction process, subtracting
the residual, ambient noise on the sensor from
the actual exposure, helps the camera produce
smooth, clean images when long shutter
speeds are used.
Dynamic Range
◆ The FinePix S5 Pro also affords the user
much greater control over the unique image
parameters that its technology provides. Six
stepped dynamic range settings between
100% (normal dynamic range) and 400%
(dynamic range expanded by two stops) will
enable the photographer to achieve exactly
the tonal feel to their images that they want.
◆ The extended dynamic range setting can be
precisely and optimally set according to
subject and scene conditions. Creative use of
this function lets you capture high-contrast
images or subtle scenes with smooth
gradation from highlights through shadows.
◆ In addition to Auto for automatic range
selection, a Manual mode offers a selection
of 6 steps: 100% (Standard), 130%, 170%,
230% (W1), 300% and 400% (W2). Select
400% and get maximum performance of
both ‘S’ and ‘R’ pixels for an exposure level
equivalent of+2EV and the capability to capture outstanding photos in high-contrast
scenes such as outdoors under clear skies.
Pro-Grade Performance
◆ 11-point AF system for high-speed, high-
precision focusing. All eleven focus areas
support up to to f/5.6, and the range finding
is effective down to -1EV of brightness.
Everything from focus accuracy to subject
compensation/tracking and response have
been enhanced by a cutting-edge algorithm.
◆ Four focusing modes to match scene
• Function Lock with password protection prevents costly unexpected operation errors. Lock the
command dial and button functions with password protection to pre-empt workplace errors.
• Select from 36 to 3000 dpi, and effectively apply the selected resolution data with compatible
application software.
• Connect an RS-232 compatible bar-code reader (requires optional cable) and append various
photographic remarks to image files for more efficient image file management and workflow.
— Single-area AF: Select a single area out of
the 7-point or 11-point focus area to
restrict focusing to only the selected area.
Face Zoom Function
— Dynamic-area AF: Even if the subject
momentarily moves out of one focus area,
other focus areas track and keep it in focus.
Thanks to the Face Detection Technology LSI, with one
press of a button, the camera detects up to ten faces
almost instantly after each image is captured. After
shooting and during playback, the photographer can
easily and quickly zoom in and check facial details such as
closed eyes, focus and exposure, and other quality
considerations on the LCD monitor. This smart function
fills a vital gap in the portrait photography work flow.
— Dynamic-area AF w/Closest Subject
Priority: Using the 11-point focus areas
to detect the closest subject, it selects the
corresponding focus area and provides
optimum focus.
— Group Dynamic-AF: Select and activate a
cross-pattern group of 5 focus areas: the
center area selected by the user, and the
areas above, below to the left and right.
◆ AF Lock-On Function with predictive focus
tracking. Even if the subject momentarily
shifts out of the focus area or another object
comes between the subject and the camera,
the camera continues to track and adjust
focus to the subject without lens hunting.
3D Color Matrix Metering
◆ With its powerful 1,005 pixel-RGB sensor,
3D Color Matrix Metering II not only uses
conventional exposure algorithms but also
detects highlight area size and calculates
their optimum exposure value with an
exposure assessment algorithm. When
shooting in cloudy conditions or a subject
that is white overall, it can correct for
potential underexposure, or in the case of
photographing a subject against a dark
background, it can reduce washout.
◆ Center-weighted metering is calculated with
75% weighting on the central viewfinder
area. You can select the metered area
diameter from 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 13mm
and Average in the custom menu.
◆ Working together with the 11-point AF
system, spot metering evaluates the optimum
exposure of a spot with a diameter of approx.
2% in the selected focus area.
RAW+JPEG Dual-save Mode
The FinePix S5 Pro has the ability to record JPEG and RAW files simultaneously to the memory
card. This will enable photographers to view and distribute smaller-sized JPEG images, while
retaining the ability to work on the larger RAW files later on a PC or Mac. This dual option is
available with a variety of image sizes, giving the option to store either a small, e-mailable file size,
or a larger, more detailed JPEG.
Film Simulation Mode
Ideal for the sophisticated color reproduction and tonality demands of
professional photographers, this unique mode is the equivalent of
changing film types to match shooting conditions or a desired color
quality or tonality. Use the “Professional portrait” (F1, F1a, F1b, F1c)
modes for reproduction of natural skin tones, and the “Fujichrome”
(F2) mode which replicates the color vibrancy of reversal film for
highly saturated, high contrast images.
• F1 Studio Portrait Standard: Suppresses highlight washout with studio
flash and produces smooth tonality and natural skin color. Replicates
the ‘feel’ of negative film used in conventional photography.
• F1a Warm natural skin tones—Pro-grade negative profile: Slightly higher saturation of skin
tones and blue. Exploits the extended dynamic range for fine tonality even under studio lighting.
Superb expression of the natural skin tone color.
• F1b Vivid blue skies and silky skin tones: Characterized by saturated blues and reproduction of
the transparent quality of skin tones. Produces smooth tonality and superb shadow detail under
high contrast conditions. Ideal for impressive outdoor portrait results.
• F1c Highly modulated impression—Pro-grade negative profile: Heightens contrast while
expressing just the right shadow detail even under soft light sources. Natural skin tones in flat
studio lighting or under cloudy skies.
• F2 Color Reversal Film Profile for vivid color: Captures images with high sharpness, highly
saturated colors and dynamic tonality. Brings colorful landscapes to life with vibrantly rich colors.

Solid Body and Shutter Release
Exposure Control
◆ Shutter speeds from 30 to 1/8,000 second
and manual setting in 1, 1/2 or 1/3 EV steps
put you in total control. Additionally, flashsynchronization is at shutter speeds of up
to 1/250 second.
◆ White Balance mode with 9 presets: Choose
Auto for automatic assessment of light
sources or select one of the white balance
presets: Incandescent Light, Fluorescent
Lamp (1-5), Fine, Flash, Shade and Color
Temperature. You can also create and save
up to five custom white balance settings, and
fine tune each white balance setting.
◆ Selectable in 1/3 EV steps, the FinePix S5 Pro
offers a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to ISO
3200. When the brightness of the subject
exceeds the exposure control range in the P, S
or A modes, or an appropriate level of
exposure cannot be achieved for the manual
mode shutter speed and aperture, it automatically adjusts sensitivity within the range of ISO
100 to 3200 for optimum exposure.
◆ Multiple exposure function records a single
image from 2 to 10 (maximum) exposures
◆ Choice of
4 exposure control modes: Program
[P], Shutter-Priority [S], Aperture-Priority [A]
and Manual [M] exposure modes.
◆ Fully supports Adobe RGB
color space, the
choice and standard of graphics
professionals and the printing industry.
Exposure Control
◆ With advanced technologies and
mechanisms housed within a rugged, but
lightweight magnesium body, the FinePix S5
is durable, dependable and ready for the
most rigorous of assignments. And, with an
enhanced sealing system protecting each and
every seam, the body offers reassuring
resistance to causal moisture and dust.
◆ Tested to well over 100,000 cycles, the double-
bladed shutter unit ensures the highest level of
durability and reliability. A shock-absorbing
mirror balancer minimizes mirror bounce
after shutter release, bringing it to an instant
standstill while vibration suppression
enhances silent operation. Mirror motion
speed significantly reduces image blackout.
2.5˝ LCD Display and
Electronic Viewfinder
◆ High performance viewfinder boasts a magnification
of 0.94x and approximately 95% coverage to support
comfortable viewing and composition. Photographic
data and settings status are clearly displayed in digital
readout of the viewfinder. The Vari-Brite Focus Area
display aids smooth confirmation of the selected focus
area, while a Multi-Display Screen provides a
convenient grid display.
◆ The high quality 2.5˝ LCD display provides over 235,000 pixels of
resolution, gives 100% frame
coverage, and accurate color, to accurately check image focus and color rendition. The LCD provides comfortable viewing of not only image data but also the large characters and optimized
color scheme of the menu screens. Further image confirmation comes from the ability to display
an image histogram and view image metadata.
◆ ‘Live View’ function for more precise focusing and view angle setting. With the mirror in the up
position (for up to 30 seconds), the image captured through the lens can be directly confirmed
on the LCD monitor. According to the scene and the subject you scan elect color or monochrome display for even more precise focusing.
◆ Multi-data display function provides a precise grasp of
captured image data. In addition to a
standard histogram display, you can check color and brightness for each RGB channel with RGB
histogram or receive “washout” warnings. You can also confirm the ‘active’ AF focus area and
other shooting details for each captured image.
◆ Built-in pop-up flash features high-precision
output using i-TTL flash control. Ready for
advanced wireless lighting, the built-in commander function serves as the master for remote wireless control of up two ‘slaved’
groups. With a guide number of 12, it
provides view angle coverage for an 18mm
lens. Convenient functions such as repeating
flash for multiple-exposure photography
and modeling flash for assessing overall
lighting prior to shooting are also available.
◆ When working with
i-TTL compatible
external flashes, the i-TTL flash system with
monitor pre-flash metering technology can
determine the appropriate flash output by
emitting a flash immediately prior to the
shot and metering both ambient light and
the reflected light from the primary subject
with the 1,005-pixel RGB sensor.
Optional HS-V3 Hyper-Utility Software
HS-V3 Hyper-Utility Software uses 3D-LUT image processing
technology to convert CCD-RW 14bit data info into image data
files with high precision. FujiFilm technology lets you replicate
color quality that approaches that of film. Use Velvia Mode to
reproduce blue skies with amazing clarity and enhance photos
with luxuriously saturated color. Choose the Studio Portrait EX
Mode for tonal touch and broad color reproduction rivaling
professional negative film.
A Masking Function displays the image with masking size
selected on the camera. Confirm cropping to precisely meet the various print sizes.
With the mirror in the up position, PC “Live View” lets you use the HS-V3 window to directly

Infra-red Digital SLR
Designed for capturing images in the infrared light spectrum, the IS-1 is ideal for use in
law enforcement, medical/dental and science fields. A successor to the S3 Pro, the IS-1
will help law enforcement officers solve crimes by capturing evidence not easily seen by
the human eye. It can be used in both the visible and infrared light spectrums, making
the evidence-gathering process more efficient and accurate. For example, it has a
continuous live preview feature, an advantage during infrared photography for focusing
and composing when using dark lens filters. It also has an articulating LCD, which
simplifies the processes of previewing, capturing and reviewing photos. Its 28-300mm
10.7x optical zoom system is built-in, minimizing dust, making operation a snap for forensic
photographers. With an infrared cut or “hot mirror” filter on the lens, the IS-1 can capture a visible light
image very close in quality to that of a standard digital camera, adding flexibility and cost-effectiveness to the overall package.
◆ Specific wavelengths can be isolated and
captured from daylight or artificial light
sources via lens filtering or by use of an
Alternative Light Source (ALS) such as a

World’s First 48mm Full-Frame Digital SLR Camera System
Setting new benchmark in high-end digital SLR camera systems for
professional photographers, the H3D takes photographic flexibility
and image quality to levels never seen before. When compared with
high-end 35mm digital SLRs, the H3D delivers unmatched pixel
resolution, better colors and detail rendering and a choice of
viewfinders for creative image composition. In comparison with
digital backs, the H3D delivers image quality with a higher level
of detail and true sharpness thanks to Hasselblad’s Digital APO
Correction (DAC) and the advances of its new Ultra-Focus functionality. The H3D’s full-frame concept offers unique control of
image composition, and with the 28mm lens, the H3D allows photographers to take wide angle shots on a 36 x 48mm sensor.
Available in three models, the H3D-22 (22-megapixels), H3D-31 (31-megapixels) and the H3D-39 (39 megapixels), offer
image capture with a resolution more than twice the size of a high-end 35mm camera sensor. The system’s viewfinders and
extra large and bright lenses enable extremely precise compositions and easy operation in dim lighting.
The H3D is built around a brand new digital camera engine, providing a new
standard of image sharpness, ‘Ultra-Focus’. In the H3D camera, information
about lens and exact capture conditions are fed into the digital camera engine
for ultra-fine-tuning of the auto-focus mechanism, taking into account the
design of the lens and the optical specification of the sensor. By then adding
Digital APO Correction (DAC) - digital, APO-chromatic correction of the
color aberration and distortion in the images - Hasselblad raises the performance of the full HC lens range to a new level of sharpness and resolution and,
with perfect pixel definition, optimizes the basis for image rendering.
Sensors for all Types of Shooting
The H3D-22 and its nearly double-resolution H3D-39 counterpart are both full-frame 48mm DSLR's using the sensor format
36x48mm. These cameras operate up to ISO400 with a capture speed of up to 1.4 seconds per capture. The H3D-22 and
H3D-39 are the preferred choice of professional commercial photographers.
The H3D-31 features a 31-megapixel sensor measuring 33x 44mm enhanced with micro-lenses to boost ISO rating by one
stop to a new maximum of ISO800. As with its fellow H3D models, the H3D-31 makes use of a new high speed capture architecture for the fastest possible operation, with the H3D-31 capturing at the rate of 1.2 seconds per capture, working either mobile or tethered to a computer. These features make the H3D-31 the natural choice for the professional mobile photographer.

Large Format Digital Capture
In digital photography, the advantages of large
format cameras become particularly obvious.
The 6 x 4.5cm window allows the H3D to use
the largest image sensors currently available in
digital photography – more than twice the size
of a 35mm camera sensor. The sensor therefore holds more and larger pixels, which secure a high-end image quality in terms of
moiré free color rendering without gradation
break-ups in even the finest lit surfaces.
Choice of Viewfinders
One of the traditional advantages of medium
format is the extra large and bright viewfinder
image. The H3D comes with a new HVD90X
viewfinder designed for full performance over
the large 36x48mm sensor. It is interchangeable with the HV90X and the waist-level
viewfinder, the HVM. This bright and large
viewfinder image is ideal for creative composing. Photographer can maintain eye contact
with the model, and impact from shooting
from a point lower than eye-level is achieved.
DNG Workflow
3FR files can be converted into Adobe's raw
image format DNG ('Digital NeGative'),
bringing this technology standard to professional photographers. In order to optimize
the colors of the DNG file format, conversion
from the 3FR must take place through FlexColor. The DNG file format enables raw, compressed image files to be opened directly in
Photoshop. Hasselblad image files carry a full
set of metadata, including capture conditions,
keywords and copyright, facilitating workflow
with image asset management solutions.
Instant Approval Architecture
Building on the success of its Audio Exposure
Feedback technology, Hasselblad has created
Instant Approval Architecture (IAA), an enhanced set of feedback tools, designed to liberate the photographer from the selection
process and to concentrate on the shoot. Audible and visible signals as well as recorded information in the file and in the file name all
promote a quick and easy classification in the
field or in the lab. Sorting becomes automatic,
accessible and very fast, facilitating reviewing
the best images for immediate presentation.
Unique Hasselblad Natural Color Solution
Normally troublesome subjects such as various skin tones, metals, fabrics, flowers, etc. are
easily captured by using the new, powerful color profile - the Hasselblad Natural Color
Solution (HNCS). It works invisibly in the background in conjunction with the FlexColor
imaging software, producing outstanding and reliable out-of-the-box results. In order to
support our new unique color system, we have developed a custom Hasselblad raw file format
called 3F RAW (3FR). The file format includes lossless image compression, which reduces the
required storage space by 33%.
Four Modes of Operation and Storage
Optimum portability and image storage are critical for the professional photographer. On the
digital front, the H3D offers a free choice of the portable CF card storage, the flexible Firewire
driven Hasselblad Imagebank (a 100GB drive with a write speed of up to 60MB/sec), or
tethered operation with extended, special capture controls. On the film front, an optional
120/220 magazine is offered for those occasions where film is preferred. With these four
operating and storage options, the photographer is able to select the best mode to suit the
nature of the work at hand, whether in the studio or on location.
“Instant” User Interface
The H3D is operated via an easy-to-use user interface, utilizing a series of “instant” one-buttonclick operations including instant capture, instant browse, instant approval, instant zoom, and
instant image info. Autofocus with Ultra-Focus digital feedback. Instant manual focus override.
AF metering with passive central cross-type sensor. Metering range EV 1 to 19 at ISO 100.
For flash control employ automatic TTL centre weighted system. Use built-in flash or flashes
compatible with SCA3002 (Metz). Output can be adjusted from ±3EV. For manual flashes a
built-in metering system is available.Exposure metering options include : Spot, Centerweighted and Center Spot.
FlexColor Workflow
FlexColor enables you to create an image processing workflow that gives you the highest
degree of control for your studio photography. In tethered operation, tools such as overlay
masking help bring productivity to advanced set composition. The latest version of the
FlexColor software enables you to manipulate color temperature and compare image details
across multiple images for precise image selection. FlexColor uses the 3FR files and runs on
both Macintosh and Windows. The software is licensed allowing free copies for all your
co-workers and production partners..
Modular Design for Flexibility
The H3D offers the choice of working with film using an H System film magazine. This option
permits photography in extreme temperature environments or when extreme exposure times
are demanded. For increased usefulness, the digital capture unit of the H3D can also be
detached and used on a view camera by way of an adapter. In this case the unit is controlled
by the flash sync signal from the view camera shutter. A clean and dust-free sensor is essential
and the modular design of the camera allows for easy access for cleaning, saving you hours of
retouching work later.
Hasselblad HC and HCD Lenses
The advantages of the central lens shutters of HC/HCD lenses adds flexibility by allowing flash
to be employed at shutter speeds up to 1/800s. Thanks to the large format, the depth of field
range is considerably shallower making it much easier to create a perfect interplay between
sharpness and blur. H System cameras and lenses are designed and built for durability and
high quality performance, both for rough location work and for the demands of a studio
photographer, something you notice the moment you hold the camera.

Teleconverters for Digital SLR Cameras
Placed between
the camera
body and
lens, a
contains a set
of optics that
will effectively
increase the focal
length of any lens it is used with. Kenko’s 1.5x
and 2x Teleplus converters have the effect of
multiplying the focal length of your lens by 1.5x
or 2.0x. For example, using the MC1.5DG with
a 300 mm lens will effectively increase the focal
length to 450mm. Using the MC4DG 2x teleconverter with a 300mm lens will effectively increase the focal length to 600mm. They are an
easy and inexpensive way to increase the abilities of your telephoto lens without the expense
of purchasing and carrying another telephoto
lens. Kenko Teleplus converters are small and
easy to carry in your camera bag.
Incorporating circuitry to work with the latest
digital cameras, Kenko’s converters also feature
genuine Gate Array IC (Integrated Circuitry).
This allows the converters to maintain signal
integrity between the camera body and lens.
Their 4- and 7-element design is made with
high quality multicoated optical glass from
Hoya, the worlds largest manufacturer of glass.
Full AF operation with the converters is possible with camera lenses with open aperture of f4
or brighter. (AF will only work properly if there
is enough light and contrast on the subject to
activate the camera’s AF sensors. (Manual focusing is recommended when using lenses with
smaller open f-stop value than those given

Kenko PRO 300DG 3.0x
Placed between the camera body and lens, a teleconverter
contains a set of optics that will effectively increase the focal
length of a lens by a specific amount. Common magnifications
are 1.4x and 2x, but the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300DG AF converter has a 3x magnification. For example, using a 3 times (3x)
teleconverter will increase the focal of 300mm lens to 900mm.
The Teleplus PRO 300DG AF is made with high quality multicoated optical glass. It is designed for use with lenses of 50mm
or above and work best with 100mm to 500mm tele lenses.
Incorporating circuitry to work with the latest digital cameras,
the Teleplus PRO 300DG AF converter also has genuine Gate Array IC
(Integrated Circuitry), so the converter maintains signal integrity between the camera body
and lens. These converters are designed to electronically operate the same way an original
manufacturer’s converter would provided there is enough light available.
Note: Due to the 3 stop light loss inherent in a 3x converter, the PRO 300 will not auto focus
with lenses that have a smaller aperture than f/2.8. With all lenses having apertures smaller
than f/2.8, Kenko recommends using the PRO 300 3x in manual focus mode.

Kenko PRO 300DG 2.0x and 1.4x
Like the 3x, the Teleplus PRO 300 2x and 1.4x converters are made with precision quality
multicoated optical glass supplied by Hoya Corporation.
These glass elements are designed to match the optical
quality of the prime lens (even at the edges) and telephoto
zoom lenses. The optical design of the elements and light
path is wide enough not to cause vignetting.
They are designed specifically to be used with
prime telephoto lenses of 100mm or above,
such as the Tokina AT-X 300 AF PRO, 300mm
f/2.8 lens, and work best with telephoto lenses
of 200mm to 500mm.
Like the 3x, the Teleplus PRO 300 2x and 1.4x
converters have genuine Gate Array IC (Integrated Circuitry). This means that the converter’s own unique circuitry maintains signal integrity between the camera body and lens. These converters are designed to electronically
operate the same way as an original manufacturer’s converter.
Full AF operation with 2.0x is possible when using camera lenses with maximum aperture of
F2.8 or brighter. Please be aware that AF will work properly only if there is enough light and
contrast on the subject to activate the camera’s AF sensors. (Manual focusing is required when
using lenses with smaller maximum f-stop value than those given above).With the 1.4x, full AF
operation is possible with camera lenses having a maximum aperture of F4 or brighter. The
same light and contrast requirements apply.

Extension Tube Set
Extension tubes
are designed to
enable a lens to
focus closer than
its normal set
minimum focusing distance.
Getting closer
has the effect of
magnifying your
subject. They are
exceptionally useful for macro photography,
enabling you to convert almost any lens into a
macro lens at a fraction of the cost.
The tubes have no optics. They are mounted
in between the camera body and lens to
create more distance between the lens and
film plane. By moving the lens father away
from the film in the camera, the lens is forced
to focus much closer than normal. The
greater the length of the extension tube, the
closer the lens can focus.
Kenko’s Extension Tube Set contains three
tubes (12mm, 20mm, and 36mm) which can
be used individually or in any combination.
They are designed with all the circuitry and
mechanical coupling to maintain AF and TTL
auto exposure.

Selective Focus SLR
Camera Lenses
Simple & easy to use. Most photographers get rewarding images within a short practice period. The
Lensbaby combines several vintage camera technologies into a novel, patent-pending combination.
The shooter focuses a Lensbaby using the
same general principle used with a bellows
camera – by moving the focusing collar in
and out with the fingertips. The photographer moves the ‘sweet spot’ of focus around
the picture plane by bending the glass optic
out of a parallel position to the image capture plane, like a tilt-shift lens. Reminiscent
of Waterhouse stops, the photographer
swaps apertures by removing one aperture
ring and replacing it with another.

10.3-Megapixel Digital Rangefinder
Camera with Interchangeable Lenses
The dream of many Leica photographers has come true: The greatest 35mm
rangefinder camera of all time, the legendary Leica M system is available for
professional digital photography. Breaking completely new ground, the Leica M8
doesn’t only look like an M - it utilizes all the benefits of the analog Leica M
system for sophisticated and creative digital photography. It is the only digital
camera for professionals to incorporate the rangefinder system with its advantages of discreet and quiet operation, speed and
precision. And the no-compromise quality criteria of the M system continue to
apply to the M8. Full compatibility with nearly all M lenses means that their
unique imaging performance is now available for digital photography, too.
The low-noise 10.3-megapixel CCD image sensor has been specifically matched
to the compact lens design to guarantee superlative photographic quality.
The controls and functions of the digital M still concentrate on the essentials.
The proven M concept is complemented by the intelligent extra functions that
digital technology has to offer.
10.3 Megapixel Resolution
Full Light Efficiency
The low-noise CCD image sensor has been optimized for the special features of the M lens system
and provides an excellent resolution of 10.3 million pixels.The CCD technology used in the M8
provides a high basic speed of ISO 160 extending to a maximum speed setting of ISO 2500, and
produces pictures that rival the image quality of film-based Leica M cameras. A moire filter, which
optically filters out fine image details, was deliberately omitted to utilize the full resolution of the
Leica M lenses. Instead, any moire patterns are eliminated by the camera’s signal processor. Because the light towards the edges impinges on the sensor obliquely with Leica M lenses, the thickness of the cover glass has been reduced to just 0.5mm to prevent unwanted refraction. As a result,
the image has uniform brightness right to the edge. To increase the light sensitivity of the CCD
sensor, micro lenses are positioned in front of the pixels, and uses a special micro lens structure
that is perfectly tailored to the characteristics of the Leica M lenses.
The highest film speed settings of up to ISO
2500 allow much more detailed pictures to be
taken than was ever possible with analog films.
As a result, the M8 opens up a new chapter in
the history of available light photography.
The Fascination of the Moment – Analog and Digital
Photography is the art of using light to capture an image. Whether analog or digital – this
basic principle of photography never changes. In 1925, Leica presented the first successful
35mm camera, and became known for uncompromising optical and mechanical quality
with incredibly compact cameras. The Leica M3 was launched in 1954 and continues today
as the classic retro MP and auto-exposure M7. The world’s best photographers have
come to rely on the Leica M rangefinder system, which allows them to anticipate how a
situation will develop. Together with the analog MP and M7, the digital M8 is now
continuing the success story. It is a professional tool that combines genuine M photography
with digital image technology – concentrating on what is essential, yet offering
uncompromising quality and full system compatibility with the world’s best lenses.
Leica M Lenses
Leica M lenses are recognized as the best in the
world and demonstrate their full capabilities
on the Leica M8. The extremely high resolution
of all M system lenses since 1954 make them
perfect for digital photography. The M8 quite
deliberately has no resolution reducing moire
filter in front of the sensor to maintain the full
performance of the lens.
The Leica M8 uses an optical scanner on the
camera's bayonet to identify the 6 bit-coding
of the current Leica M lenses. This allows the
slight vignetting caused by the system to be
compensated, further improving the familiar
high image quality. The lens type identified is
saved in the EXIF data for the image file and
the reflector position on modern flash units
is adjusted to the image angle depending on
the focal length. Existing M lenses can be
retroactively 6 bit-coded by Leica.
M-TTL Flash Technology
◆ The unique feature of
the Leica M-TTL flash
technology is that a pre-flash for flash
metering is fired immediately before the
actual exposure. TTL measurement of the
light reflected by the surfaces of the subject
determines the exact power required from
the main flash. The seamless addition of the
flash intensity to the available light results in
flash photographs that retain the natural
lighting mood.
◆ Auto slow sync function lets you use aperture
priority mode in conjunction with the flash
technology. It ensures that the image
background is balanced even if the intensity
of the ambient light should change. An
appropriate metered amount of fill-in flash
is emitted to provide correct exposure.
Depending on your experience or the
intended effect, various maximum exposure
times can be set for aperture priority.
The Rangefinder System
The rangefinder system is an optical masterpiece, created for cutting-edge photography.
Unlike a reflex system, where you focus through the lens, and the focal length and speed
determine the accuracy of the measurement, the measuring basis of the M8 remains constant
regardless of the lens. This makes it many times more accurate at short focal lengths.
The high-contrast focusing images in the center of the viewfinder field guarantee fast and
precise focusing with pinpoint accuracy, even in poor lighting conditions. The image field
selector enables you to simulate the effect of a different focal length and thus choose the
right lens in advance. The six bright line frames show the exact framing, as the automatic
parallax compensation adjusts their position depending on the distance setting. All relevant
information needed to achieve a perfect result can be seen in the bright-line frame finder,
along with the subject’s surroundings – ideal for spontaneous, inconspicuous photography.
Tonal Value Histogram
As a professional digital camera, the M8 provides an RGB tonal value histogram. This can be
called up at any time to check the exposure of saved pictures and can also be combined with the
automatic review function. Another useful feature is the additional marking of overexposed
sections of an image - known as the clipping warning. The particular advantage of this is that
these two control tools are constantly updated when zooming in on the LCD display, allowing the
quality of even the finest image details to be assessed. Pressing the Info function key displays all of
the photographic settings from the quick menu and additional meta-information saved with the
image file - this enables you to completely evaluate a picture as soon as you have taken it.
Optimum RAW Data Conversion
Simple, Intuitive Operation
◆ The core controls for operating the digital
functions are the direction buttons and rotary
setting dial, which in combination allow
rapid navigation. By pressing the “Set” button,
the picture parameters menu is called up on
the 2.5˝ monitor. Here the principal settings
for the picture can quickly be selected: sensor
speed, lighting correction, white balance,
data compression and picture resolution.
Three saved profile slots are available for
quickly calling up frequently used and
application-specific combinations.
◆ The menu button calls up a clear system
menu for selecting the long-term basic
settings, such as the ECI RGB, Adobe RGB
and sRGB colour variants. The photographer
can make their own choice about whether
the photographs should be shown for
checking on the large display directly after
they have been taken, how long they should
be displayed and whether they wish to see a
tonal values histogram with that display.
Bundled Capture One LE RAW data converter ensures that the raw data supplied by the CCD
sensor and saved in the future-proof Adobe digital negative format (DNG) is processed to yield
optimum quality. The development of even ultra fine tonal value nuances from the 16 bit-image
supplied by the CCD sensor is comparable with the image quality provided by film professionally
developed in a photographic laboratory. The logical functions for adjusting the quality and the
well-structured user interface mean that Capture One LE can be used to achieve outstanding
results with consummate ease and speed.
Compact, Discreet, Supremely Functional
No other professional camera is as compact as the Leica M. As no mirror box is needed, the
M8 has a depth of less than 37mm. The M lenses also benefit from the short distance to the
focal plane, making them small and lightweight. The incredible compactness of the M8
camera and lenses makes them the ideal equipment for travel and reportage photographers.
Mirror vibration and the resulting blurring are not an issue for Leica M8 users. The
inconspicuousness, distinct design and barely audible shutter release are yet more reasons
for the unique vibrancy of M8 pictures. Time and time again, photographers using the
Leica M in areas of tension in the world report that they are not perceived as journalists,
allowing them to capture scenes that remain beyond the reach of those using other systems.
Portraits appear more relaxed as the camera does not cover the photographer’s face and he
can maintain eye contact with the model. This discretion is made possible by concentrating
on what is essential for photography. This philosophy has been consistently implemented
on the M8, bringing the core values of M8 photography into the digital world.

Advanced Features
M8 Specifications:
◆ The M8 is designed to deliver professional
results over many years. The enclosed
all-metal body is made of a high-strength
magnesium alloy while the top and base
plates are cut from solid brass blocks and
then given a black or silver chrome finish.
The battery and the SD card slot are located
under the base plate and provides effective
protection from dust and moisture.
◆ The electronically controlled metal blade
focal-plane shutter enables shutter speeds of
up to 1/8000 second to be achieved. Even in
very bright surroundings, the photographer
still has total creative freedom thanks to the
selective focus feature with open aperture.
The high flash synchronization speed of
1/250 second now allows daylight flash
photographs to be taken with selective focus.
◆ To make cocking the shutter as close to
silent as possible, a rubberized silent friction
wheel has been placed in the first winding
gear stage. A cam disk is used to transfer the
force at a constant torque over the entire
path of the cocking arm. As a result, the
electric motor cocks the shutter almost
◆ The M8 has a special function for manually
cleaning the sensor. When you select the
corresponding option in the menu and press
the shutter release, the shutter remains open
while cleaning is in progress. The flat profile
of the Leica M camera means that the sensor
is more easily accessible than in a digital
mirror reflex camera, where the sensor is
accessible only by reaching behind the
mirror mounting.
◆ The M8 is supplied with special software
that allows the camera to be controlled
remotely for scientific work or in a
photographic studio. With Leica Digital
Capture the camera can be operated from a
computer via a USB connection and the
image data can be saved directly onto hard
disk. The software can send all settings in the
exposure parameter menu, e. g. sensitivity
and resolution, to the camera.
◆ The camera also has a traditional threaded
release button for the use of a cable release.
◆ A display on the left-hand side of
the top
plate constantly shows the remaining
capacity of the SD card and the battery.
The information is available at a glance at
all times.

The extreme importance that Leica dedicates to the highest quality of its products can be verified
on every individual lens. Optical glasses are prepared to special formulations and grounded,
polished and ultimately centered with extremely meticulous craftsmanship. The result, convenient,
compact precision optics, unique in themselves that are always designed to meet the needs of
practical photography. And extraordinarily long-lived too. All Leica M lenses are compatible
with every M cameras of the past, present and future. There is more. The judicious policy of
preserving compatibility even allows lenses from the 1930’s to be used on highly modern Leica
cameras. Every new lens is supplied with a high-grade soft nappa leather case and a lens hood
that is specifically designed for that lens.
At Leica, each lens is a masterpiece. Aspherical lens elements (ASPH) are used for further
enhancement of the imaging performance. They have a surface that deviates from the spherical
shape and they are very complex to produce, but they produce the very best results with a compact design. Apochromatic correction
(APO) is used by Leica on telephoto lenses in order to combine the color spectrum coming from a point on the subject practically
into a point on the image. This assures the highest sharpness across the entire image, even at full aperture.
All current lenses incorporate a code on the bayonet ring to enable the digital Leica M8 to recognize the lens type and to optimize
the image quality. These lenses can still be fully used with the current analog cameras as well as past M system cameras.
Elmarit-M 21mm f/2.8 ASPH
This compact ultra-wide-angle lens delivers outstanding detail and superb contrast even at full
aperture. And the highest level of image quality is maintained even in the close-up range. Distortion
is minimal, and negligible in photographic practice. With its ultra-wide imaging angle of 92°, it is
ideally suited to landscape photography featuring dramatic effects. The foreground appears
monumental, while the rapidly diminishing background creates a wide horizon. This focal length
is also ideal for photojournalists who have to shoot right in the midst of the action. Since it delivers
extremely sharp images and good depth of field at the widest aperture settings, very good picture
results can be achieved in gruelling photojournalism assignments even without precise focusing.
Combine this remarkable lens with the ultra-short shutter delay and aperture priority automation
of the M8, and the result is the fastest camera system in existence. Available in black anodized or
silver chrome finish .......................................................................................................................3495.00
Elmarit-M 24mm f/2.8 ASPH
This lens establishes the standard for wide-angle lenses with regard to contrast and detail rendition
at full aperture. Special lens design combines one aspherical lens surface, one lens element with
anomalous partial dispersion and two other lens elements made of optical glasses with high indices
of refraction to give this compact lens outstanding contrast—and detail rendition— even at full
aperture. This focal length is often ideal for dynamic close-ups or for landscape photographs with
great depth. Also ideal for photojournalism assignments and architectural shots. 24mm focal length
means that converging verticals, such as those encountered when shooting buildings, are easy to
master with this lens without having to work from too great a distance. Though its focal length is
only 3mm longer than that of a 21mm lens, the 24mm yields surprisingly natural perspectives with
no indication that a super-wide-angle lens has been used. Available in black anodized or silver
chrome finish ................................................................................................................................2895.00
Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH
This super fast wide-angle lens has been a benchmark product since its launch. It is highly
compact, and from maximum aperture on down it delivers outstanding picture quality. Its
ultra-fine detail rendition yields pictures of extraordinary plasticity. Even under critical lighting
situations, such as when shooting into the light, disturbing reflections and diffusion are largely
eliminated. With its 75° wide angle, it captures a wide enough frame for lively reportage
situations. The high aperture of f/2.0 enables creative selective focus to be employed even for
wide-angle shots. And this lens is particularly recommended when shooting in difficult lighting
conditions, such as at dusk or in dimly lit rooms with no flash.
Thanks to a sophisticated optical formula, in which special types of glass and an aspherical
surface were used, the dimensions and the weight are almost identical to the 28mm f/2.8 even
though it is one stop faster......................................................................................................3195.00
Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH
This new high-speed lens is the most compact of Leica M lenses. By using an aspherical
element it was possible to attain top imaging performance with a weight of only 180
grams. This lens is practically distortion-free down to the close focus range of 0.7m
and only protrudes slightly into the viewfinder field of M cameras. Used on the M8, it
produces the effect of a 35mm lens which makes it ideal for reportage. Due to its
attractive price it can be particularly recommended as an introduction to the highquality range of Leica M lenses...................................................................................1495.00
Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH

than ever. A shaped handle on the distance setting ring makes focusing easier and a scale on the
lens displays the depth of field for all three focal lengths. Filter diameter is reduced is only
49mm for a better viewfinder image. The optimized zoom ring engages audibly and tangibly at
every focal length now, thus preventing accidental readjustment of the focal length. A metal
lens hood is available as an accessory that does not obstruct the viewfinder image. Using an
adapter, a 67mm circular polarizer can be used that is set directly through the viewfinder. A
matching 49mm UVA “slim filter” that prevents vignetting at 28mm is also available .....3495.00
Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4
The Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4 can be used either on its own or together with the Leica MacroAdapter-M. With the adapter, this lens permits macro shots to a magnification of 1:3. Without the
adapter, it serves as a compact 90 mm telephoto lens. In combination with the Tri-Elmar, this
lightweight telephoto lens provides an excellent, universally usable compact system for traveling.
When retracted, it is no larger than a 50mm lens.
90mm-lenses are traditionally very popular among Leica M photographers. Along with the 35- and
50mm-models, they belong to most standard outfits. With its low weight and compact dimensions
the Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4 is first choice whenever you wish to limit your outfit to a minimum
without forfeiting the maximum in image quality. Its performance is very good across the whole
image field. Available in Black (LE904MB) and Silver (LE904MS) ....................................................1595.00
Designed specifically for the 90mm f/4 Macro, the Macro-Adapter M allows the lens to close
focus from 2.5´ (1:6 life-size ratio) down to 1.6´ (1:3 life-size ratio). When the lens is to be used
in its close-focusing range from 0.77 to 0.5m, the Macro-Adapter-M is attached to the camera
body instead of the lens. The lens is then mounted on the adapter after rotating it 180°, i.e.
with its lower side turned up. In this position, a second pair of distance and depth of field
scales for the respective focusing range becomes visible, enabling easy reading from above.

7.5-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera
The Digilux 3 is Leica’s first digital camera with an interchangeable lens,
offering ambitious amateurs and professional photographers an exciting
new option. The clear-cut lines of the housing and the operating concept
of the DIGILUX 3 are consistent with the best Leica tradition has to offer.
This means shutter speed, focal length, aperture and focus can be set
manually on the camera and the lens – fast, precise and creative
handling in comparison with conventional digital SLR cameras.
Virtually revolutionary is the interaction between the outstanding
imaging performance typical of Leica and state-of-the-art technology.
First-class image quality is achieved with the superb Leica D Vario-Elmarit
14-50 mm f/2.8-3.5 ASPH. lens in combination with the latest optical image stabilization and the
7.5 megapixel Live-MOS sensor. High quality, precision-crafted materials ensure that the Digilux 3 will function reliably
long term — especially critical for demanding photojournalism applications.
4/3-type Live MOS Sensor
◆ The ideal sensor for DSLR cameras, the Live
MOS sensor delivers the same high image
quality as a CCD sensor with the low power
consumption of a CMOS sensor. The DIGILUX
3 uses a new readout circuit providing a
greater photoreceptive area per pixel than a
conventional CMOS sensor can provide.
The result is the type of wide dynamic range
that makes it possible to capture detailed,
expressive images with rich gradation.
◆ The Live MOS sensor not only slashes noise,
it embeds the photodiodes deeply into the
silicon layer, where they are resistant to noise.
This suppresses the rough image texture that
is sometimes noticeable (like viewing an
image through a dirty window) when
shooting in dim lighting, giving you clear,
smooth shots even in difficult conditions.
Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm f/2.8-3.5 ASPH. Lens
◆ Maker of
many of the world’s finest lenses, the
Leica D lens series (‘D’ for digital)– developed
specifically for digital photography, is an
advanced lens that fuses leading-edge optical and
digital technologies at an uncompromisingly
high level. The D lens inherits the smooth tonal
expression and rich shading that make Leica
lenses the choice of both professional and
amateur photographers the world over.
◆ This wide-aperture zoom lens provides f/2.8-3.5
brightness from 28-100mm (35mm equivalent).
With 16 lens elements in 12 groups, including
two glass-molded dual-sided large diameter aspherical lenses, the D Vario-Elmarit lens
delivers a superb optical performance.
◆ To prevent light reflections in critical situations such as shooting into the light, all lenses are
provided with multicoating. Thanks to advantageous internal focusing, the lens offers an
entirely uniform length in all focus settings.
◆ For accurate imaging, light must strike the
sensor at a perpendicular angle. When a
lens designed for a film camera is used, light
from the edge of the image area enters at
an angle, resulting in inaccurate color
reproduction or dark areas. The DIGILUX 3
uses a lens mount with about twice the
diameter of the image circle. Light strikes the
sensor at an almost perpendicular angle, so
images are clear and accurate all the way to
the edges.
MEGA O.I.S. compensates for natural movements, thus helping you to take sharply focused
and brilliant images. In line with the increased requirements in SLR photography, the Leica D
lens has its own integrated image processor. With this technological module the data delivered
by the movement detector 4000 times a second can be utilized for the effective reduction of blur
due to shake. The image stabilization system offers 2 different modes : mode 1 also activates
image stabilization with image preview (both in the viewfinder as well as on the LCD monitor),
thus enabling shake-free composition. In mode 2 image stabilization is only activated when the
shot itself is taken, thus operating with maximum performance capability. You can decide at any
time which mode you want to use in what situation.
High Performance
2.5˝ LCD Display with Realtime Preview
◆ Individual processing of
chrominance and
luminance noise means that the problem of
picture noise becomes a thing of the past
with digital cameras. The DIGILUX 3 cuts
down on luminance noise, which mainly
occurs in the shadows of a picture, with
efficient noise reduction.
◆ The DIGILUX 3 is equipped with a filter
which filters out color noise and processes it
separately. In addition, the image signal
processor minimizes lens errors such as
color fringing and distortion – with
impressive results, reaching right into the
corners of pictures.
◆ Built for spectacular high-speed shooting,
with a startup of only 0.8 second and burst
shooting at 3 frames per second. The shutter
works as fast as you do. The DIGILUX 3 has
unlimited consecutive shooting. You can
keep shooting until the memory card is full,
and choose the best shots later.
◆ The DIGILUX3 supports an extended
optical zoom that provides an additional
1.5x with reduced resolution, and a Digital
zoom of 2x or 4x (only in Live View mode).
◆ During development the new image signal
processor was specially matched to the
superb imaging performance of the Leica D
lens and interaction with the new LiveMOS
technology. This means it can cater for the
high requirements of SLR photography in
terms of performance and picture quality.
Images can be captured and assessed with the brilliant high-resolution 2.5" display using the
unique Realtime Preview system, that not only shows a simple image on the monitor before the
picture is taken but also permits full exposure and white balance control. Realtime Preview offers
benefits that to date were only found on compact cameras, such as checking white balance or reviewing exposure compensation before picturetaking. At the touch of a button the Digilux 3
additionally allows the working aperture to also be checked with Realtime Preview activated so
the resulting depth of field can be evaluated prior to exposure.
Dust Protection Filter
Dust is a major problem with digital SLR photography. Dirt particles can easily get onto the
sensor when changing lenses, often disrupting the imaging results irreparably. The DIGILUX 3
solves this problem with sophisticated technology. A filter has now been developed, positioned in
front of the image sensor between the low pass filter and shutter. Whenever the camera is switched
on, this protective filter receives an ultrasonic pulse with a vibration frequency of 30,000 Hz. This
shakes off the dust particles on the protective filter. No dirt particles can get in due to the absolutely airtight seal of the space between the sensor and filter.
Four Thirds Standard Lens Mount
The lens mount system used in the Leica Digilux 3 is based on the Four Thirds open standard.
This helps provide the optimal lens design for digital photography while also making it possible to
create a lens that is small in size without sacrificing focal distance or brightness. Use of the Four
Thirds Standard also means the Digilux 3 can use lenses made by other manufacturers using the
same standard-providing you with an extensive range of interchangeable lenses to choose from.
Exclusive Protection from Leica
Accidents can happen - a careless moment, and your valuable camera equipment is ruined. This is
no problem with the DIGILUX 3. Thanks to Leica’s Additional Risk Warranty, any damage to the
camera and your high-quality lens is insured for the first six months after the purchase date. Leica
will repair or replace your equipment with no questions asked. After that you benefit from the
manufacturer's warranty which has been extended to three years. The extra guarantee is all part
of Leica service.
