    Got a Leaf raw file ?

    Is there anywhere to get a raw file for a Leaf ? Hopefully an Aptus II-6 file.
    I am thinking about this back but want to try the software which I downloaded to my Mac.

    Provided that you have a serious interest in a digital back any decent Leaf dealer should be able to get you raw files on an FTP server pretty quick.

    That would also be a good way to go since you can chat with them (presuming it's a full-service dealership) about what settings/workflow will get the most quality out of the file. For instance if you were downloading a Phase One file from me I would let you know to use Capture One 4.6.X and turn noise reduction off and turn up clarity a smidgen.

    Keep in mind that all of the digital backs (at any given resolution) are pretty close in final image quality. The only exception is high-iso and long exposures where some manufacturers do significantly better. We can nit pick about micro-detail and detail at the edge of the dynamic range, but its 99% the same. The differences are in workflow, platform openness, dealer service, support/warranty, etc etc etc.

    So if you're looking to decide if the file quality is better than a dSLR then don't bother; it's better by a lot. If you're looking to chose between different manufacturer's backs then looking at raw files from each will only tell you a very small part of the story as they are awesome across the board.

    Download page for Leaf RAW files

    Aptus 65 and Aptus 65S use the same chip as the Aptus II 6 and produce similar files. If you're looking for anything specific please let me know, thanks!
