Leaf, designer of digital backs for professional photographers, announced today the introduction of the Leaf AFi - a new, next generation, medium-format digital camera aimed at professional photographers. The Leaf AFi is specifically designed for high-resolution digital photography, and is seamlessly integrated with the new Leaf Aptus S-Series digital camera backs. The Leaf AFi product line will include three models: Leaf AFi -75, Leaf AFi -65 and Leaf AFi -54. Leaf solutions are based on the premise that a professional digital camera should operate intuitively, becoming an extension of the photographer's hands, while supporting maximum creative freedom and technical excellence.
