The Leitz Henri kit is the solution to the search for a modern director’s viewfinder with the clearest and highest resolution image available. Accurately evaluating lens performance requires format flexibility and an optimal image path. Cameras like the Leica SL2 and SL2-S as well as the Sigma fp L can be easily integrated with interchangeable mounts to offer a full frame template and framelines for seeing all that your lens has to offer. The industry-leading EyeRes OLED EVF of the SL2 series further enhances the feeling of working with a traditional viewfinder while enjoying modern features and flexibility in an innovative and intuitive setup.
THE LEITZ HENRI
The Leitz Henri system is a lightweight aluminum and carbon fibre support with an integrated swing-away handle reminiscent of a Beaulieu Super 16 camera. The system connects to the camera with either a Leitz L-PL or L-LPL mount (interchangeable) and it is designed to quickly go from handheld to tripod or monopod mount. Standard follow focus systems can be attached easily. The handle includes a camera start/stop button that allows for instant image capture or recording without having to reset your hands. The complete system without the lens weighs only 4 lbs / 1.8kg.
Assemble the entire HENRI system without tools using unique tightening mechanisms. The camera and lens can be removed together with a single thumbscrew.
The carbon fiber support system includes a removable universal lens support for larger lenses.
The eco-friendly birchbark handle folds away smoothly allowing Henri to sit flat on a camera cart or be quickly mounted to a tripod.
