The unique Leica Q2 Monochrom sensor 

The Leica Q2 Monochrom features a 47.3 megapixel Full-Frame Monochrom sensor designed exclusively for the camera that captures both highly detailed photos and 4K videos with ISO sensitivities of up to 100,000. In combination with the Leica Summilux 28mm F/1.7 ASPH., this ensures exceptional image quality. The F/1.7 full aperture guarantees optimum image quality, even in the most difficult lighting conditions. All this makes the Leica Q2 Monochrom the perfect companion for lovers of black-and-white photography and those who want to discover this world. The lens has both a practical lockable button for autofocus or manual focusing and a mechanical switch to macro mode with a short focus distance of just 17cm. This gives the photographer the greatest possible creative freedom when shooting exceptional black and white images.

Made in Germany 

In its design, the Leica Q2 Monochrom adheres more than any other camera to Leica's typical tradition of reducing to the essentials. The 'Made in Germany' quality seal guarantees that only the best and most durable materials are used in the construction of the camera. The monochrome design of the new Leica Q2 Monochrom and the classically structured leather ensure an optimum interplay of form and functionality. The Leica Q2 Monochrom is a true 'photographer's camera' thanks to its practice-oriented and intuitive handling. In addition, the menu structure has been adapted to the special characteristics of this monochrome camera. Of course, all colour settings for image and video recordings have been omitted and the menu has only been supplemented with settings for tinting black-and-white images in blue, sepia or selenium.

Additional functional optional accessories and possibilities  

A wide range of optional accessories is also available for the Leica Q2 Monochrom. For example, there are protectors and carrying straps in high-quality leather in various colors, but also bags and wristbands in various designs. Perfectly matched to the camera's monochrome sensor, the three new, specially calculated Leica E49 color filters are available in yellow, green and orange. As with analogue photography, this allows certain colors to be highlighted even more during shooting. These color filters for black-and-white photography optimize the image in portrait, nature and landscape photography for example.
