SHARE THE EXPERIENCE
of „Das Wesentliche“
Pushing the limits of what is technically possible whilst being extraordinarily focused on what is essential for photography. A concept that’s that has been behind every Leica camera for more than a hundred years. From the Oskar Barnack original to the new Leica Q.
WRITE WITH LIGHT
day and night
With the fastest lens in its class and full-frame sensor, you can rely on your Leica Q in every situation. Even in adverse lighting conditions, images of stunning quality can still be achieved.
NEVER MISS A MOMENT
with high speed technology
Decisive moments only ever happen once. They’re never repeated. The Leica Q functions at high speed, so you’re always able to capture them.
‘Combine what is technically possible with what makes sense photographically.‘ A concept that has been epitomised by Leica since Oskar Barnack laid the foundations for 35 mm photography more than a hundred years ago, with the original Leica.
This concept has been central to our company’s philosophy - based on the art of engineering on one hand, and on visionary risk-taking on the other. A philosophy that leads to innovation, rewriting photographic history again and again. As it has with the new Leica Q, a camera which continues this groundbreaking Leica tradition with a full-frame sensor and a fixed-focus lens.
Whether your subject involves depth of field, an available-light situation or a macro photography shot, the Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. provides everything you need to express yourself photographically. Its classic 28mm focal length is perfect for street, architectural and landscape photography. Its lens, the fastest in its class, combined with a specially designed 24 MP CMOS full-frame sensor, provides detailed images of unsurpassed quality: up to ISO 50,000.
The integrated viewfinder of the Leica Q is activated as soon as the camera is brought up to the eye. It faithfully displays the camera’s image at any time, right down to the smallest detail and without any perceptible delay. With its resolution of 3.68 MP, it surpasses all other electronic viewfinders. The autofocus is also outstanding, capturing with ultimate sharpness at maximum speed. The new Maestro II series processor works extremely rapidly and allows a serial image speed of up to 10 frames per second at full resolution. And of course, the images are instantly available as a JPEG in playback mode.
Intuitive, ergonomic, pragmatic. The controls of the Leica Q provide quick access to all relevant options and opportunities. For example, auto-focus can be set either using buttons or via the touch screen. Prefer to focus manually? Then let the innovative Live View aids “Focus-Peaking” and “Live View Zoom” assist you. Easy to use, the Leica Q helps you implement your ideas perfectly - at the press of a button.
The built-in Wi-Fi module on the Leica Q makes it easy to share your pictures and videos on social networks. Images can be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet or computer via WLAN and the complimentary Leica Q app. The app also allows the Leica Q to be operated remotely. For example, set the time and aperture on your device and use it as a remote-control release. In this way, blur-free long exposures and recordings are possible from unusual angles – and also as moving images. What’s more, you can record video in Full-HD and web-friendly MP4.
Entirely new angles
The high-resolution Visoflex electronic accessory viewfinder was designed exclusively for the Leica T Camera System. Its tilt-and-swivel function lets you shoot from all sorts of angles, opening up new possibilities to expand your creative horizons. A sensor detects the user’s eye. A look through the viewfinder turns off the camera display. As soon as you take it away from your eye, the display comes back to life. Just as practical: integrated GPS that can be activated whenever you need it.
The Leica maxim 'focusing on the essentials' also applies to the Leica Q’s exterior design. Made in Germany, the high quality materials and outstanding craftmanship guarantee maximum durability. The top cover is milled from a solid aluminium block, while the housing is finished in magnesium and all labels and markings on the adjustment wheels are laser engraved. The thumb rest on the back of the camera and the diamond pattern of the exterior finish make the Leica Q beautifully easy to grip.
