The Leica Q-P matches the critically acclaimed technical specifications of the ongoing Leica Q and pushes the design further forward to new heights of stealthiness and refinement.
- "Stealth" matte black paint
- Discreet "P" styling with classic Leica script engraving on top plate and no red dot logo
- Improved shutter release button and on/off switch for better feel and handling
- Dedicated brown leather strap
- Two rechargeable batteries included
- Compatibility with Leica FOTOS app
An artful statement of understatement
The Leica Q-P is tailored to fulfill the most stringent aesthetic and technical expectations. It favors a classic Leica script engraving on the top plate over the usual front-facing Leica red dot logo for a more discreet look, stealthy matte-black paint finish that looks and feels like nothing else, and a redesigned shutter release button for a more positive tactile feedback. The new Leica Q-P also comes complete with a new carrying strap in the finest brown leather, and an additional battery.
It carries the same superior image quality and technical excellence of the standard Leica Q in silver and black finishes, but further refines this amazing formula.
The Leica Q-P replaces the front-facing red Leica dot logo with the classic script logo engraving on the top plate, favoring a more discreet look and aesthetic – a staple of "P" models from Leica, both vintage and new alike.
The new "stealth" paint finish in a high-resistance flat matte black gives the camera an even darker black look and subtle textured feel.
As a noticeable hardware advancement that improves ergonomics and handling, the shutter release and on/off switch have been redesigned and upgraded to a similar style to the current M and CL cameras, giving users a better and more positive tactile feedback when taking pictures or switching drive modes.
Elegantly contrasting the all-black camera is an adjustable-length high quality brown leather strap, exclusive to this Leica Q-P package which also includes a second rechargeable battery.
‘Combine what is technically possible with what makes sense photographically.‘
A concept that has been epitomised by Leica since Oskar Barnack laid the foundations for 35mm photography more than 100 years ago, with the original Leica.
This concept has been central to our company’s philosophy - based on the art of engineering on one hand, and on visionary risk-taking on the other. A philosophy that leads to innovation, rewriting photographic history again and again. As it has with the new Leica Q-P, a camera which continues this groundbreaking Leica tradition with a full-frame sensor and a fixed-focus lens.
Whether your subject involves depth of field, an available-light situation or a macro photography shot, the Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. provides everything you need to express yourself photographically. Its classic 28mm focal length is perfect for street, architectural and landscape photography. Its lens, the fastest in its class, combined with a specially designed 24 MP CMOS full-frame sensor, provides detailed images of unsurpassed quality: up to ISO 50,000.
The integrated viewfinder of the Leica Q-P is activated as soon as the camera is brought up to the eye. It faithfully displays the camera’s image at any time, right down to the smallest detail and without any perceptible delay. With its resolution of 3.68 MP, it surpasses all other electronic viewfinders. The autofocus is also outstanding, capturing with ultimate sharpness at maximum speed. The new Maestro II series processor works extremely rapidly and allows a serial image speed of up to 10 frames per second at full resolution. And of course, the images are instantly available as a JPEG in playback mode.
Intuitive, ergonomic, pragmatic. The controls of the Leica Q-P provide quick access to all relevant options and opportunities. For example, auto-focus can be set either using buttons or via the touch screen. Prefer to focus manually? Then let the innovative Live View aids “Focus-Peaking” and “Live View Zoom” assist you. Easy to use, the Leica Q-P helps you implement your ideas perfectly - at the press of a button.
The built-in Wi-Fi module on the Leica Q-P makes it easy to share your pictures and videos on social networks. Images can be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet or computer via WLAN and the complimentary Leica Q-P app. The app also allows the Leica Q-P to be operated remotely. For example, set the time and aperture on your device and use it as a remote-control release. In this way, blur-free long exposures and recordings are possible from unusual angles – and also as moving images. What’s more, you can record video in Full-HD and web-friendly MP4.
The Leica maxim 'focusing on the essentials' also applies to the Leica Q-P’s exterior design. Made in Germany, the high quality materials and outstanding craftmanship guarantee maximum durability. The top cover is milled from a solid aluminium block, while the housing is finished in magnesium and all labels and markings on the adjustment wheels are laser engraved. The thumb rest on the back of the camera and the diamond pattern of the exterior finish make the Leica Q-P beautifully easy to grip.
