Leica Q Compact Camera

Sony has renewed three of its products as more upscale image, but not the RX1 when Leica undertook it. Joking aside, the German manufacturer this week introduced a compact full-frame sensor and fixed focus, the ‘Leica Q (Typ 116).”


After the Leica T unusual (for the brand) and ignoring of renewalmeantime, the brand back to basics. The Leica Q is actually a new miniature alternative to the famous M , two years after the X Vario.

Mix of tradition …
It shows the approach and some of the main aesthetic and ergonomic principles. It has to start with a fixed focal length Leica Summilux 28 mm f / 1.7, and thus destined to reportage and street photography. Just like a million, it also has a viewfinder in the upper left corner of the box, except that it is not but telemetry electronics (LCOS, derived from the LCD, 1280 x 960 pixels, 3 7 million points). Worn in the right eye, this relatively compact magnesium do not covers the face and is less intimidating than a DSLR.

In the same vein, the Leica Q wants quiet and fast. The focus ring shows the iconic ergo M mount lenses, which facilitates the manual focus. But unlike rangefinder cameras from the manufacturer, this model has an autofocus that locks in unlocking the focus ring and turn to the AF position. The autofocus is very fast during the day, enough to capture the decisive moment dear to Henri Cartier-Bresson.

It is also traditional controls dedicated to the opening and the exposure speed.

… And modernity
But the Leica Q cleverly combines classicism and modernity. To start the lens is stabilized, a first for Leica. And if it is removable, a function saves in JPEG cropping to 35 or 50 mm, in parallel with a 14 bit DNG raw file to 28 mm.

The full frame CMOS sensor, probably the same as the Leica M , photography for its 24 million pixels at 10 frames / s and films in Full HD 1080p at 30 or 60 frames / s, with stereo sound. It offers a wide sensitivity range, from 100 to 50,000 ISO, and it boasts a dynamic range, which is good news in any of 13 IT (clear dark beach).

The unit finally sports a 3-inch LCD screen 720 x 480 pixels (1.04 million dots), multi-touch, and embeds a Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, enabling remote control of a smartphone and then transfer pictures and videos.

In sum, the Leica Q Typ 116 is a very good camera on paper. Made in Germany requires, it is very expensive: it is now available for the tidy sum of 4000 euros, including Adobe Lightroom (worth 130 euros). The Sony RX1, while until now a monopoly, is trading for its 2500 euros.
