August 1, 2008 We brought news of Hasselblad's 50-megapixel H3DII-50 earlier in the month - now Leaf has announced the 56-megapixel AFi 10 medium-format digital camera.

The AFi 10's True Wide Frame (TWF) 56x36 mm sensor delivers 56 megapixel resolution across the entire width of the 6x6 sensor area. This technology, found in the AFi 10 imaging module and Aptus 10 camera back, is also compatible with over 80 large-format cameras.

Also on board is Leaf's internal sensor rotation technology, dubbed Verto, which allows the user to swap the sensor between portrait and landscape orientations at the press of a button, offering increased stability and comfort while taking portrait shots.

The AFi 10 will be available in Q4 2008 for US$43,675. For more information please visit Leaf online.
