Leica has a way of designing cameras that are technologically advanced and aesthetically pleasing – a balance that other brands can’t seem to get right. The new Leica Q-P pairs the tech specs of the Leica Q camera with a shutter release button that replicates those of the Leica M and CL cameras and a refined, yet understated matte black finish.
The Leica Q-P is available now from the Leica Store Sydney and Melbourne. The camera comes complete with a carrying strap in fine brown leather and an additional battery. You can make one your own for $7,300.
Features of all Q models include a fast Leica Summilux 1:1.7/28 mm ASPH. lens perfect for street photography, architecture and landscapes. For reliable control of subject composition, Q-P features an integrated viewfinder with a resolution of 3.68 MP. Leica says 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.
All functions are laid out and logically placed to guarantee ergonomics and intuitive handling. The menu provides rapid access to all essential functions and enables users to program personalised settings.
Leica Q-P also delivers video recording in full-HD. Users can choose between 30 and 60 full frames per second for video recording in MP4 format. The camera also features Wi-Fi for remote control and digital transfer of pictures and video to a smartphone with the companion app.
Q-P’s lacks the red dot logo of other Leica cameras, instead features the classic Leica script engraved on the top plate. The discreet design is what sets this camera apart from the existing silver and black Leica Q models. The matte black finish is resilient and underlines the camera’s elegant looks.
