Expanded Leica Q2 Digital Camera Key Features:
Elegant and Powerful
At a glance, the Leica Q2 adopts the sleek, striped-back design of its predecessor, continuing the vintage and classic feel that Leica are known for. Internally, the Leica Q2 is equipped with an impressive and reimagined 47.3 megapixel full-frame sensor. This powerful sensor is complemented by Leica's Maestro II image processor and together, this duo helps to produce stunningly detailed and clarity-rich images and video. In fact, the Q2 is capable of capturing 4K video footage and up to 30 fps, as well as full-HD video with 120, 60, 30, or 24 frames per second. In addition, the Q2 has an advanced autofocus system that acquires focus in as little as 0.15 seconds, and expansive low-light performance with an ISO sensitivity range from 50 - 50,000, comfortably dealing with lower levels of light.
The Fixed Lens
The Leica Q2 is fitted with a fixed Leica Summilux 28mm f1.7 ASPH lens. This lens sees an advanced lens structure that is made up of 11 glass elements in 9 groups, which includes 3 aspherical elements. This structure not only provides pin-sharp images but the aspherical elements dramatically reduce the appearance of chromatic aberrations that plague lesser lenses. As a 28mm lens, this wider focal length lends itself to the likes of street, architecture or portrait photography, and its maximum f1.7 aperture provides greater control of depth of field, selective focus and allows for effective shooting in lower-light situations.
However, it doesn't stop there. This prime lens is accompanied by the advanced system that is the Q2 body. This body offers an integrated digital zoom enabling you to choose your frame with focal lengths of 28mm, 35mm, 50mm and 75mm, all whilst retaining the camera's native 47.3 megapixel image resolution. This transforms the Q2's ability to cater to a wide range of applications, adding flexibility to almost any shooting environment.
The Leica Standard
As with all Leica cameras, the Q2 is designed and made in Germany. It is crafted with the highest-level materials and by Leica's engineers which ensures maximum durability and quality. The Q2 features a top cover that is milled from aluminium, whilst the main body is made from magnesium, offering a rugged, lightweight and premium feel. All labels and markings on the Q2 are laser engraved and the camera has an IP rating of 52, making it dust- and splash water-proof. Something new for the Q2 is the addition of a distinctive thumb rest, which combined with the textured finish, provides enhanced grip.
Built For Convenience
An addition to the Leica Q2 is an energy-saving Bluetooth connectivity that offers fast and reliable wireless connectivity. Once this system is set up for the first time, the Q2 will automatically save the connection allowing quick connection to your smartphone or device even after you've turned your camera off and on again. Why is this useful? This can be combined with Leica's FOTOS app, making it easy to quickly share your photos with friends and family on social media. You can change various camera settings from your device and even remotely control your Q2's shutter release.

Leica Q2 Digital Camera Sample Images:
Can I get GPS location in the EXIF data with this camera?
The camera cannot do this alone. But this can be done using the Leica FOTOS app. When you have an active connection to the FOTOS app, the app will write the GPS info (latitude, longitude and elevation) into the Exif data of the images.
Is the optical viewfinder comfortable for people who wear eyeglasses?
By all means! You can easily adjust the diopter knob for more comfortable viewing.
Can the Q2 battery be charged in-camera?
No, there is no USB or HDMI port and therefore, the battery must be charged outside the camera.
