    Leica Camera is pleased to announce a special edition of its full-frame mirrorless Leica Q camera, the Leica Q "Khaki." Featuring a silver-anodized body wrapped in a premium khaki-colored leather trim, the Leica Q "Khaki" is reminiscent of the classic Leica M 'Safari' models with its khaki-colored silk screen lettering of the classic Leica script on the top plate and color-matched carrying strap.

    The special edition of the Leica Q "Khaki" is limited to 495 units worldwide.

    The technical specifications of the Leica Q "Khaki" are identical to those of the standard model of the Leica Q. Thanks to its particularly fast Leica Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH lens, the camera is perfect for photography in any available light situations, for street photography, architecture and landscapes. To allow reliable control of subject composition, the Leica Q also features an integrated viewfinder with a resolution of 3.68 MP. Even the finest details of every exposure are displayed without any perceptible lag as soon as the camera is brought up to the user’s eye.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    The Leica Q reflects the principles of reduction to the essentials and is made in Germany. The materials used ensure exceptional endurance. The top plate is machined from solid blocks of aluminum, the body is made of magnesium alloy, and all lettering and the numbers on the setting dials are laser engraved.
