Leica Camera proudly introduces the Leica Q (Typ 116), a symbiosis of design and superior technology. With its fast lens, easy and intuitive handling, the Leica Q gives the photographer the creative freedom that makes the difference. With a full frame sensor and the Summilux 28 mm/f1.7 ASPH lens, the Leica Q is ideal for street, architecture and landscape photography.
LEICA Q - PIONEER BY TRADITION
The Leica Q with its fast lens, easy and intuitive handling, gives the user the creative freedom that makes the difference. With a 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and the Leica Summilux 28 mm/f 1.7 ASPH lens, the Leica Q gives the user the best possible picture in any light situation. The Leica Q is almost noise-free and takes pictures which highlight details even in high ISO. The Leica Q has a locking function which allows the user to switch between automatic and manual focusing. In the macro mode, the Leica Q has a close focusing distance of 17 cm. True to the Leica tradition; the Leica Q focuses on the essentials and is made in Germany.
LEICA Q - PRACTICAL FEATURES
The Leica Q has many unique features that enhance the user’s experience. The camera has an integrated 3.68 megapixel electronic viewfinder, allowing the user to see the finest details of the image. There is a thumb rest on the back of the camera, ensuring a solid grip in one hand. The point of focus can be easily selected with a tap of the finger to the touch screen.
LEICA Q - FASTEST LENS IN ITS CLASS
The Leica Q has the fastest lens in its class, the Summilux 28 mm/f1.7 ASPH. The lens offers many creative possibilities with selective focus. With its classical focal length of 28mm, it reproduces scenes with natural perspectives and proportions. It is ideal for street, architectural and landscape photography. The Leica Q’s wide aperture and built-in Optical Image Stabilization offer exceptional imaging quality in any lighting situations. The camera’s autofocus also functions in real time and is the fastest in the compact full-frame camera category. With a newly developed processor from Leica Maestro II series, data arriving from the sensor is processed at enormous speed. This allows the user to shoot continuously at a rate of ten frames per second at full resolution, much faster than all other comparable cameras.
LEICA Q - DIGITAL FRAME SELECTOR
The digital frame selector of the Leica Q expands your creative scope. In addition to 28 mm at full resolution, this function also offers focal lengths of 35 and 50 mm. The corresponding frames are displayed in the viewfinder at the push of a button. The advantage - you can still see what is going on outside of the bright-line frame and have the ability to react more rapidly to changes in and around the scene in the same way as with the a rangefinder camera. With the Leica Q, this versatility remains available even after the scene has been captured. While the scene defined by the frame is captured in JPEG format, DNG format files preserve the entire field of view of the 28 mm lens.
LEICA Q - VIDEO FUNCTION
The Leica Q allows for video recordings in Full HD 1080p that give a cinematic look. It can record 30 or 60 frames per second. The Leica Q records high-quality moving pictures in MP4 video format and an integrated wind noise filter guarantees crystal-clear sound to match.
LEICA Q - SHARING IN A SNAP!
With integrated Wi-Fi, the Leica Q allows the photographer to shoot and share pictures and videos via e-mail, Facebook and other social networks. With its wireless transmission, it is possible to share pictures directly from the Leica Q to a smartphone, tablet or computer. The Leica Q app is available for free download in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
LEICA Q - REMOTE FUNCTION
The remote function of the Leica Q app allows the user to connect a smartphone or tablet to the camera wirelessly and use it as a remote control for the camera. This allows the user to set the shutter speed, aperture and activate the shutter release remotely. This allows for self-timer shots, group portraits and easier shooting from difficult angles.
LEICA Q - PROCESSING SOFTWARE
Leica Q owners can get a free download of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This software offers many creative options for Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is the professional work flow solution for managing and processing still pictures and video recordings.
