Leica Camera commemorates the 2018 Winter Olympics with the special edition, Leica Q “Snow” by Iouri Podladtchikov. A gold medalist in the 2014 Winter Olympics, Podladtchikov’s design of the Leica Q features white cowhide leather on the body, and is paired with a white leather strap and white soft leather case. The special serial number is engraved on the hot shoe, which has an accessory shoe cover made of silver anodized aluminum to give the top of the camera an all-encompassing silver styling. The Leica Q “Snow” is technically identical in specification and operation to the current Leica Q (Typ 116) and features a silver anodized top plate and bottom plate. It also has a silver anodized lens with red lens lettering, a silver lens hood and lens cover. The control dials and buttons are in silver.
With its fast lens, easy and intuitive handling, the Leica Q gives the photographer the creative freedom to shoot in any lighting scenario. With a full frame sensor and the Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH lens, the Leica Q is ideal for street, architecture and landscape photography.  The Leica Q “Snow” by Iouri Podladtchikov is limited to 300 units worldwide.

A no compromise compact, the silver anodized Leica Q (Typ 116) Digital Camera wields a full-frame 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor within its exceptionally portable, and beautiful, body. Leveraging the power of the Leica Maestro II series image processor, high-resolution, low-noise imaging is possible at sensitivities up to ISO 50000 and at a continuous rate of 10 fps. Also, the camera utilizes a Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens to allow users to dramatically separate the subject from the background as well as work in difficult light conditions.

The design is benefitted by Leica’s classic simple aesthetic and the body has easily read laser engraved lettering, numbers, and dials. Construction is solid with a machined aluminum top plate and a lightweight magnesium alloy body. Also, it has a large thumb rest on the back and a diamond pattern on the front leathering to ensure a firm, comfortable grip over the camera. Further, the Q (Typ 116) has a built-in 3.68-megapixel LCOS electronic viewfinder which provides a live through-the-lens image with handling similar to that of a rangefinder.

In addition to fully manual control with physical operation using the aperture and focus rings on the lens, auto focus is possible using a contrast-based system. This enables fast, sharp imaging at the click of the shutter. The rear 3.0″ 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD monitor helps by allowing users to quickly take control of their focus by just tapping on their subject. Focusing aids are also available in the form of Focus Peaking and Live View Zoom.

Another benefit of the updated Maestro II processor is Full HD 1080p video capture at 60 or 30 fps. A built-in stereo microphone enables high-quality sound recording and an integrated wind filter limits extraneous noise. Full manual control will then allow users to dial in the exact look they want or need for their shot.

Share your photos and videos instantly thanks to an integrated Wi-Fi module which allows you to link the camera to a smartphone, tablet, or computer. The Q also has an NFC chip for tap-to-connect functionality with certain devices and the free Leica Q app lets you take remote control of your camera for adjusting exposure while you shoot from odd angles and positions.
