Leica Q2 Digital Camera
Every great story deserves a sequel. Leica Camera's Leica Q2 features a 47.3 megapixel full frame sensor, integrated weather sealing throughout the body and built-in Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 lens, a brand new electronic viewfinder, lightning-fast autofocus and burst shooting, 4K video, a revised button layout and refined design.
95% More Resolution
The Leica Q2's newly developed 47.3 MP full frame sensor boasts the highest resolution in its class. Matched with the high resolving power of its built-in Summilux lens, the Q2 goes beyond the conventional use-cases of a 28 mm focal length via its built-in crop functions for equivalent focal lengths of 35 mm, 50 mm, and the newly available 75 mm – bringing with it more possibilities in the world of portraiture and close-up work. This sensor maintains a 30 MP image when cropped to a 35 mm equivalent frame, even more than the original Leica Q's maximum of 24 MP at 28 mm. When shooting cropped DNG files the full sensor image is still recorded, allowing the user to undo or change the crop during postprocessing. These newfound heights of resolution and flexibility, combined with high ISO performance and a fast aperture make the Q2 the perfect companion for all areas of street, architectural, landscape, travel, documentary, reportage and even portrait photography.
Weather Sealing and Improved Life
The Q2's IP52-certified weather sealing protects the camera from dust, rain and water spray and ensures users can photograph under challenging environmental conditions. The adoption of the BPSCL4 battery from the Leica SL boosts battery life by 30% over the original Leica Q, and its built-in rubber gasket further helps seal the Q2. This level of weather-sealing is usually reserved for pro-level cameras.
OLED High-Resolution EVF
A new high-resolution OLED viewfinder offers a lag-free high refresh rate and faster auto-switching between the rear display and EVF. The high resolution of 3.68 megapixels in the viewfinder provides the clearest vision of the user's composition to perfectly and accurately frame subjects. OLED panels, known for being used in high quality smartphone and TV screens, are superior to LCDs as they control each pixel's brightness independently – this yields a better color depth and quality.
Speed and 4K Video
The autofocus system of the Leica Q2 focuses sharply on the subject within milliseconds, making it one of the fastest cameras in its class. Improvements to its processor from the Maestro II family have enabled a high continuous burst shooting rate with an impressive 10 frames per second from the mechanical shutter, even at maximum resolution. The Q2 adds 4K UHD and Cine4K video recording to its arsenal, with frame rate options across 4K and 1080p. In combination with the Leica FOTOS App, the integrated Wi-Fi module makes it possible to quickly and easily share pictures and video via social media, and thanks to Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) a permanent connection can be established between camera and smartphone. Now users can even remotely wake the camera and connect when in range.
Design and Handling
The design of the Leica Q2 carries forward the Leica tradition of reduction to the essentials with a Made in Germany seal of quality. The distinctive thumb rest and the sophisticated diamond pattern of its leather trim ensure optimum grip and highlight the symbiosis of function and form. Also new is a uniquely intuitive handling concept, with refined design language cues such as the single-stage On/Off switch, simplified three-button interface on the rear of the camera and programmable button within the thumb wheel dial. A highlight of the Q2 layout is a push-button diopter compensation dial on the back that locks and prevents inadvertent changes to the desired setting. Every refinement, both large and small, pushes Leica’s design forward without losing sight of the core philosophy of the camera.
