New Leica RCD100 camera announced

Leica Geosystems announced the Leica RCD100, claimed to be the first integrated medium-format mapping camera on the market. According to the company’s release, Leica RCD100 is a highly productive, yet affordable, mapping solution for those who want to convert from analog to digital airborne imaging and for those who want productivity and efficiency for smaller to medium-sized photogrammetric mapping and orthophoto projects.

The temperature-controlled Leica RCD100 camera housing contains the control unit, reliable and exchangeable solid state memory, Leica IPAS20 Inertial Positioning and Attitude System with IMU and up to two 39MP frame sensors for single head or dual-head operation. Dual-head operation allows simultaneous image acquisition in RGB and CIR.

Further, the Leica RCD100 offers 35mm, 60mm and 100mm exchangeable lenses and the most rigid lens mounting on the market. This ensures flexibility and photogrammetric stability without compromise where true mapping accuracy is needed.
