Now with Live View on the LCD, Credo digital backs open up a whole new possibility for using technical or view cameras un-tethered while on location. Not only can you frame your shot on the LCD, you can check critical focus without a viewfinder and level your camera with the built-in spirit level display (roll+pitch), enabling your creativity to take you where want you want to go, without the encumbrances of cables or viewfinders.

Your time is valuable and that is why we designed the Credo backs with features to make your job easier. Save time by picking the outstanding shots when they are captured by using the star rating system. Keep the camera level by using the built-in bi-directional spirit level (roll+pitch), to set up the camera. The internal battery charger lets you move from tethered to portable shooting with a battery that is ready to go at a moment’s notice. The intuitive four touch-buttons and enhanced navigation GUI let’s you make the most of what the system offers without the need for a PhD in computer science. Leaf Credo digital backs are optimized for shooting with Capture One workflow software, which delivers a full range of tools required to capture, organize, edit share and print images.
