Leica Q2 Monochrom now official
Leica has recently unveiled the latest addition to its Q line of cameras, the Leica Q2 Monochrom.
The Leica Q2 Monochrom is equipped with a newly developed 47.3MP full-frame monochrome sensor. It has a Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH prime lens, has up to 75mm digital zoom, up to 100,000 ISO, and a 3.68MP OLED viewfinder. It can shoot 4K videos in a full-HD format at 120, 60, 30, or 24 frames per second. The camera appears to be the monochrome version of the Q2, delivering new quality standards in black and white photography.
It is housed in the monochrome design body with a new leather covering and matte black paint. Similar to its predecessor, the Q2 Monochrom comes with a protective sealing against dust and water, thanks to its IP52 certification.
The camera can also be connected to the Leica FOTOS App with its integrated Wi-Fi module for easily sharing photos through social media, changing camera settings, or even remotely controlling the shutter release of the Leica Q2 Monochrom. It also comes with Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) for securing the connection between the camera and smartphone.
Some accessories are also compatible with the Leica Q2 Monochrom, such as the Leica SF 40, SF 60 flash units, the SF C1 remote flash control unit, additional thumb rest, and a handgrip with leatherette.
The Leica Q2 Monochrom is now available in the US for USD 5,995.
