Leica Q-P: The design of the new model of the Leica Q series concentrates on understatement
With the Leica Q-P, Leica Camera AG presents a further model of its high-performance compact camera with a full-frame sensor and a fast prime lens. Lacking the Leica red dot logo, but instead featuring a restrained, classic Leica script engraved on the top plate, the discreet design of the Leica Q-P sets it apart from the existing Leica Q models in silver and black. The matt black paint finish of the camera body is especially resilient and underlines its refined and elegant looks. A new feature of the Leica Q-P is a shutter release button that replicates those of the Leica M and CL cameras.
The Leica Q-P is on sale from today. The camera comes complete with a carrying strap in finest brown leather and an additional battery.
The technical specifications of the Leica Q-P are identical to those of the serial production models of the Leica Q camera. The outstanding feature of all models is a particularly fast Leica Summilux 1:1.7/28 mm ASPH. lens that makes the camera perfect for photography in available light and for street photography, architecture and landscapes. For reliable control of subject composition, the Leica Q-P features an integrated viewfinder with a resolution of 3.68 MP. Even the finest details of every exposure are displayed without any perceptible lag as soon as the camera is brought up to the user’s eye.
All functions of the camera are clearly laid out and logically placed to guarantee perfect ergonomics and particularly intuitive handling. Its clear and logical menu concept provides rapid access to all essential functions and enables users to programme personalised settings.
The Leica Q-P also delivers video recordings in full-HD quality. Depending on the scene and subject, users can choose between 30 and 60 full frames per second for video recording in MP4 format. The camera also features an integrated Wi-Fi module for remote control and digital transfer of still pictures and video to a smartphone with the Leica FOTOS App.
