LEICA Q2 Monochrom
The only full frame compact camera with a dedicated monochrome sensor
Leica Camera AG presents the Leica Q2 Monochrom – the next-generation model of the Leica Q line of cameras. With a newly developed full-frame monochrome sensor, a fast Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH. prime lens, fast and precise autofocus and OLED viewfinder technology, the new model not only continues the performance features of the Q2, but also defines new quality standards in black and white photography. Like the Leica Q2 the Q2 Monochrom comes with a protective sealing against dust and water spray compiling to the IP52 Standard.
The Leica Q2 Monochrom features a exclusively developed 47.3 megapixel full frame monochrome sensor that captures both highly-detailed still pictures and 4K video at ISO sensitivities up to 100,000 and, together with its Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens, ensures exceptional imaging performance. The fast initial aperture of f/1.7 guarantees optimum picture quality in even the most difficult lighting situations. This all makes the Leica Q2 Monochrom the perfect companion for fans of black and white photography and those who want to become one. The practical locking element for the choice of manual or automatic focusing and simple switching to macro mode with a close focus distance of 17 cm is located on the lens and highlights the greatest possible creative freedom in composing exceptional black-and-white images
Clear view at all times
The newly developed, high-resolution OLED viewfinder has a resolution of 3.68 megapixels. The high resolution provides an ideal view and live preview of your subject at all times, with improved image depth and higher contrast.
Pushing creativity beyond still-images
The combination of the excellent Leica Summilux lens and the ability to capture video with 4K resolution unlocks new creative perspectives. For brilliant, true-to-life moving pictures, the new Leica Q2 offers a 4K video mode with 3840 x 2160 pixels and frame rates of 30 or 24 frames per second.
Leica FOTOS App
Leica Q2 Monochom features energy-saving Bluetooth connectivity for fast, wireless connection. After setting it up for the first time, this connection is automatically saved and remains available when the camera is switched off and on again. This makes it possible to quickly and easily share pictures with the whole world on social media at any time, change numerous camera settings from a smartphone, or even remotely control the shutter release of the Leica Q2 Monochom.
