The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a compact and portable Digital Camera with a full-frame 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and Leica Maestro II series image processor, with Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH lens. Create high-resolution, low-noise images at sensitivities up to ISO 50,000 and at a continuous rate of 10 fps, while a maximum aperture of f/1.7 allows for selective focus and aids working in difficult lighting conditions.

With a solid machined aluminum top plate and lightweight magnesium alloy body, it is designed to suit Leica's simple and classic aesthetic. A large thumb rest on the back and a diamond pattern on the front leathering ensure a firm, comfortable grip over the camera. A built-in 3.68-megapixel LCOS electronic viewfinder provides a live through-the-lens image with handling similar to that of a rangefinder. Alternatively, use the rear 3.0" 1,040k-dot touchscreen LCD monitor to compose and select focus. Focusing aids are also available in the form of Focus Peaking and Live View Zoom. In addition to fully manual control with physical operation using the aperture and focus rings on the lens, autofocus is possible using a contrast-based system.

Capture Full HD 1080p video at 60 or 30 fps. A built-in stereo microphone enables high-quality sound recording with an integrated wind filter. When you are done shooting, share your photos and videos instantly with the integrated Wi-Fi module which allows you to link the camera to your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Q also has an NFC chip for tap-to-connect functionality with certain devices, and the free Leica Q app lets you take remote control of your camera for adjusting exposure while you shoot from odd angles and positions.
