Style in silver: Leica launches new silver Leica Q (Typ 116) camera
posted Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 11:30 AM EDT
The full-frame Leica Q (Typ 116) has a 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor with a built-in fixed focal length Leica Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH lens. The camera typically comes with a black finish, but Leica has just announced a new silver anodized edition of the camera.
The aluminum and magnesium alloy body has a silver top plate, silver baseplate and silver lens to create a "striking appearance." The rear of the camera remains black, as does the leather grip around the camera body, creating a two-tone appearance which evokes a classic look.
Besides the appearance, everything else remains the same with the new Leica Q Silver Anodized camera. The rear of the camera remains dominated by a 3-inch 1.04-million dot touchscreen monitor. The camera has a 3.68-megapixel electronic viewfinder and records Full HD video at up to 60 frames per second. The camera can shoot at up to 10 frames per second thanks to its Leica Maestro II Image Processor and the camera's ISO tops out at ISO 50,000.
The Leica Q (Typ 116) Silver Anodized camera will be available starting at the end of November and it retails for US$4,495. You can preorder the camera through the link below. If you prefer the classic black look, the original Leica Q (Typ 116) is available for US$4,250.
