From the Manufacturer:
Weighing in at 80MP, the Leaf Credo 80 uses the highest resolution CCD sensor on the market to deliver unbelievable detail and image quality. With a dynamic range of 12.5 f-stops, the Leaf Credo 80 faithfully reproduces images with extreme tonal differences and details in just one shot.
Next generation display
Utilizing the latest display technology, the new high resolution (1.15 megapixel), bright, touchscreen offers an intuitive and user-friendly workflow in a responsive, sophisticated yet easy-to-use package, drawing from and greatly enhancing the very successful and popular Leaf Aptus-II line. Planned from the ground-up for comfortable, effective shooting both indoors and outdoors, Leaf Credo’s 3.2 inch display features an extreme viewing angle of 170 degrees. The new touchscreen, which extends beyond the LCD, gives you the resolution and processing power that allow you to check very fine details instantly and maintain greater control over your workflow, while keeping your screen clean of fingerprints.
Tools for portable shooting
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.
If your destination is outdoors during inclement weather conditions, the weather-sealed construction, enclosed battery and a bright, large screen make the Credo a perfect companion for tough, demanding conditions. The internal, replaceable lithium-ion 2900 mAh battery delivers impressive, long-lasting performance when shooting on location.
The Leaf Credo is built with a new dual core microprocessor and extended buffer enabling unlimited shooting with the latest CompactFlash technology, fastest image viewing, zooming and editing. A choice of FireWire 800 or USB 3.0/USB 2.0 connection to a Mac or a PC with fast capture rate and Capture One workflow make the Leaf Credo an excellent choice for studio work.
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.
