Leica RCD30 Series 80 MP Camera Multispectral RGBN Imagery

Leica RCD30 Series
80 MP Camera
Multispectral RGBN Imagery
High Resolution
The new Leica RCD30 Series – unique imaging innovation from the leader
The new Leica RCD30 camera is presently the only single head camera in the market which is able to collect
80 MP RGBN multispectral imagery perfectly co-registered. Now we have released a new high resolution optics
with 150 mm focal length. When first released, the Leica RCD30 Series of medium format cameras started a
revolution in airborne imaging. Since then, just like the RC30 has once set standards in film based airborne
imaging, the Leica RCD30 is setting new standards in what you and your customers can expect from a
medium format digital camera.
A true Masterpiece
The Leica RCD30 Series is not only true imaging innovation, it remains a masterpiece. The Leica RCD30 offers
performance that is otherwise only known from largeformat airborne sensors at a lower cost and thus makes
digital multispectral photogrammetry available to everyone.
The Leica RCD30 boasts quite a number of innovative and
unique “world‘s first“ features and is the only suitable
medium format camera for photogrammetric and remote
sensing applications:
nn60MP and 80MP single camera heads deliver
co-registered, multispectral RGBN imagery
nnChoose from three different focal lengths for a
wide range of applications
nnMechanical Forward Motion Compensation (FMC)
along two axis
nnRuggedized and thermal stabilized lens system with
innovative bayonet mount and user replaceable central
shutter with automatically controlled high precision
nnModular concept for single standalone, multihead and
oblique configurations
nnFull integration with Leica ALS LIDAR and other third
party sensors as well as the Leica MissionPro and
Leica FlightPro Software
