Lucia has launched the new Leica Q this week that is fitted with a fixed Summilux 28-mm F1.7 lens that is combined with a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor.
The Leica Q weighs in at 640 g and is crafted from a solid block of aluminium, and sports a body chassis that is constructed of magnesium alloy.
On the rear of the Lecia Q is a high resolution 1280 x 960 pixel electronic viewfinder and the camera supports connectivity via both NFC and WiFi and is capable of recording Full HD 1080p video footage at 60/30 fps. Leica explains :
“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.”
