Embrace the soul of photography
To this day, black and white photography continues to exude a unique fascination, mystery and beauty. Compared with colour photography, it is the most authentic manifestation of "painting with light". Leica Monochrom cameras give photographers direct access to this captivating form of visual expression.
Welcome the latest member of the Leica Monochrom family, the Q2 Monochrom
The world’s first full-frame digital compact camera to feature a dedicated monochrome sensor.
With its 47.3 megapixel resolution, exceedingly sharp and fast Summilux 28 f/1.7 ASPH. lens, quick and precise autofocus and crisp OLED viewfinder, the Leica Q2 Monochrom is an intuitive tool for timeless monochrome photography with an inherent focus on the essentials for the modern-day photographer.
The Q2 Monochrom is true to form with its resilient matte-black body and time-honored engravings inlaid in discreet grey and white. A conscious omission of the classic red Leica logo marks the dedication of the Q2 Monochrom’s commitment to black & white.
The Q2 Monochrom's digital zoom provides simulated focal lengths of 35, 50 and 75 mm
for the JPEGs, while the DNG file of the original image is always preserved at full sensor resolution.
Outstanding performance in any light
The built-in Summilux 28 f/1.7 ASPH. prime lens is distinguished by both the razor-sharp details and exceptionally soft bokeh it renders. As the fastest lens in its segment, it is perfectly suited to the sensor of the Leica Q2 Monochrom, and delivers outstanding results even in the darkest and most difficult light.
Eleven lens elements, including three elaborately constructed aspherical elements, ensure the highest image quality possible so textures and details can be seen like never before in tones and shades of crisp and contrasty black-and-white.
Brave any weather and shoot anywhere
Harsh environmental conditions and even the risk of rain will not faze this versatile camera. Equipped with dust and splash protection (rated IP52*), the Leica Q2 Monochrom is always ready to capture that perfect interplay of light and shadow even through equally dramatic weather.
Extraordinary black and white videos
In combination with the outstanding Leica Summilux, the Leica Q2 Monochrom captures black and white videos imbued with a stunning aesthetic. A dedicated overview menu for video mode delivers ease-of-use and fulfils even the most demanding requirements.
For brilliant, razor-sharp footage, the camera offers 4K and Cine4K modes with respective frame rates of 30 and 24 fps. Videos can also be recorded in full-HD format at 120, 60, 30 or 24 frames per second.
Fast and simple operation
The straightforward operation of the Leica Q2 is renowned and appreciated by photographers around the world. The same perfectly thought-out concept can also be found in the Q2 Monochrom. The physical dials and rear touchscreen provide a simple overview and direct access to the main shooting parameters.
The streamlined menus have also been pared down further thanks to the omission of all colour settings. No unnecessary distractions. Just the “decisive moment.”
Filter effects | An analog reminiscence
Three new, specially developed E49 colour filters complement the Leica Q2 Monochrom as the perfect kit. The yellow, green and orange screw-on lens filters open up new possibilities for the creative exploration of contrast and light.
Each filter modifies and tweaks the colours and contrast of our visible light spectrum when recorded as grayscale values on the sensor. As a result, landscape and portrait shots can be imbued with unique visual aesthetics for more punchy or subdued contrast from the moment the shutter button is pressed.
The multilayer coating of these specialized filters reduces reflections and ensures high light transmission without vignetting, for maximum image quality.
Unlock more with Leica FOTOS
The Leica Q2 Monochrom can be connected quickly and easily to an iPad or smartphone via the Leica FOTOS app. This enables photographers to share images instantly and from any location.
Leica FOTOS also allows the camera to be operated via remote control from the mobile device. A seamless integration of Adobe Lightroom supports the subsequent editing and organization of the captured images, even on the go.
