That’s not a camera. THAT’s a camera!
Leica gives all the patriotic photographers out there a reason to be excited as the German brand announces a special Australian edition of its high-performance Leica Q camera.
Dubbed the Leica Q Australia Edition, this limited edition camera offers the same technical specs as its standard counterpart, with the addition of a silver and cement grey colourway with matching hand and neck straps.
The top and base plates are silver anodised, with matching cement grey leatherette enveloping the body. The design concept is completed with an engraving of the edition number on the camera hot-shoe.
That’s not all. Each Australia Edition camera includes a book of street photography by acclaimed Melbourne photographer Jesse Marlow titled “Anything Can Happen and Probably Will.” Everyone who buys the special edition will also receive a one-day photography experience with Jesse Marlow on the streets of Sydney.
The standout features of a Leica Q include the fast Summilux f1.7/28 mm ASPH lens that’s perfect for low light and street photography. To assist with reliable control of subject composition, Leica Q also features an integrated digital 3.68MP viewfinder that displays every exposure in the most exquisite detail without any perceptible lag.
We spent two weeks with the Leica Q a while back and found it to be one of the most impressive compact cameras we had ever seen. You can read all about it here.
The Leica Q Australia Edition is limited to only 30 sets and will be available exclusively at the Leica Store Sydney and online. You can pre-order one now for $7,000. The package is expected to launch mid-February.
