The new Dimension of documentation

The conventional monitoring of construction sites is a thing of the past. CANDID EYE generates tangible added value for your project beyond the legal benefits. Developed in cooperation between HGEsch and Leica, the system provides high-quality imagery throughout the course of the project, suitable for anything from sophisticated architectural books and film reports to large-scale images. 

Contemporary viewing and editing tools are provided by the accompanying CANDID EYE app.

Thanks to the incredible image resolution of 51 megapixel, the system allows you to maximize the degree of zoom on any given sequence – nothing escapes the CANDID EYE.
