Leica S2 - The Best Digital 35mm Camera

Executive summary article By Adva Jones
The Best Digital SLR
This summer Leica, who were always known as the Rolls-Royce of 35mm cameras, will be launching their latest offering in digital SLRSs - the Leica S2.The Nikon D3 for example has a 24 megapixel sensor, which is about double that of the 'average' high-quality digital camera.The Leica S2 will be taking this even further by featuring a 37.5 megapixel digital sensor. In Leica's own words the Leica S2 is a "remarkable new camera from Germany that redefines the professional DSLR class with a custom 37.5-megapixel, 30 x 45 mm sensor built into a 35mm-sized body".
This digital camera is expected to seriously shake up the digital camera world and will force other manufacturers to significantly improve their products. The aim is to combine the quality of a medium-format digital camera with the ergonomics, and ease of use of a 35mm DSLR. Back in 1925 Leica redefined photography when they created the legendary model A.

Digital Versus 35mm Cameras
The introduction of digital cameras spawned many new discussions among photographers about quality and photography opportunities. The debate tends to center on which type of camera captures picture quality better.Digital cameras normally possess a number of advanced features, while the 35mm camera is generally regarded as easier to use for simple pictures.
 The trend is strongly turning in favor of digital cameras as the "people's choice." Given this, traditional photographers fear that the emerging technology of digital photography may make obsolete the use of film cameras.Amateur and Professional Digital PhotographyDigital cameras are more convenient to handle, especially when used by amateur photographers.
They can produce some professional grade shots that surpass the quality of those taken by pros through their 35mm cameras. Digital or 35mm CameraBecause news and sporting events force photographers with time constraints to produce their output quickly, the preference for using digital cameras is prominent. Nature photographers, however, still largely rely on their 35mm conventional manual cameras for better results in the natural habitat.
