Leica S3 manual

As with other members of the Leica S-System, the Leica S3 is constructed using superior-quality and extremely resilient materials. The S3 is amazingly easy and intuitive to use, the optical viewfinder is marvelous, the shutter sound is a treat, and the speed is excellent. Leica’s choice to stick to a DSLR system and an optical rather than an electronic viewfinder is interesting. It can record DCI 4K (4096×2160/24fps) 4:2:2 8-bit internal video using the entire width of the sensor. And they say you can hang the entire S3 off its over-engineered cable and everything will be fine.
