The Digital Fotogroup, an innovative photo studio specialising in premium advertorial photography, accepted a challenge: photographer Michael Koch wanted to realise a rig shooting of a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (“Flügeltürer”) built in 1956. The car is one of just 49 SL 300 racing cars with an aluminium car body. To capture the elegance and fascination of such a car, Michael Koch has chosen the Leica S2. “The camera proved to be a perfect choice, especially for the driving shots,” said Michael. “The sensor resolution and lens quality of the S2 are simply outstanding.” His colleague, Ulla Hebgen, a passionate Leica photographer, captured the scenery during the shooting with her M9. And so the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL and the Leica S2 shared the spotlight. See for yourself!
