Leica S USB3?
« on: September 22, 2012, 04:05:41 AM »

Has any one got any information on connectivity for the new S.

On the Leica website, the S2 section lists the USB port as USB2, but for the S just says USB. Is it USB3?

I am now seriously considering one.

I currently shoot with a Hasselblad H1 and an Aptus II 5, as well as a 5DmkII. I find the Canon frustrating as it provides flexibility, but not the image quality I get with the Hasselblad.

Unfortunately upgrade paths for me are a bit **** to be honest. You see I could get a H4x by trading in the H1, but the H4x will not work with the Aptus II 5, so that is out, and in my country the price of this option is just stupid, almost nine grand.

I could buy a H5d, but they have dropped the 31, so the entry is now the 40.

Hence my renewed interest in the S, especially with the release of the H lens adapter, so I can use my H lenses.

I do shoot a bit tethered, so that was why I thought to ask about the USB connection.

Has the image shuttle/hot folder solution evolved any further to provide a smooth workflow. I am used to shooting with C1pro so I still have to a lot of research I suppose before making a final decision, but the journey has to start somewhere.
