The Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee is an exclusive Q2 special edition created in collaboration with leading watch platform Hodinkee. Its timeless design pays homage to an iconic diver’s watch known to connoisseurs as the “Ghost Bezel”.
The Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee features a grey, fine cowhide leather with a natural texture and matching light grey lacquered lens and case. It deliberately avoids the red Leica logo. Its carrying strap is woven from grey yarn with a stable key-ring binding to complete the stylish look of this special edition, which is technically identical the standard Q2 model.
With its newly developed, 47.3 megapixel full frame sensor, extremely fast Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH. prime lens, fast autofocus, innovative OLED technology, and timelessly elegant design, the Leica Q2 elevates the tradition established by its predecessor, the Leica Q.
The Leica Q2 Reporter continues a long tradition of Leica cameras that are specifically geared towards the challenging working environments of reportage and press photographers offering maximum precision and reliability even in the most adverse conditions. Along with its robust exterior, the camera is distinguished by a deliberate discreet appearance – enabling the photographer to work without drawing undue attention. Both the red Leica dot on the front and the engraving on the top plate are consciously omitted for this purpose.
Instead of the traditional leather trim, the Leica Q2 Reporter is equipped with a body armor made of Aramid Fiber, a synthetic material widely used in the production of high-grade protective clothing. This is perfectly complemented by the cameras matte-green finish, achieved with a particularly scratch and abrasion resistant paint. The result is an exterior that is both hard-wearing and discreet.
The new Leica Q2 Monochrom is todays one and only compact camera with a true monochrome full frame sensor, delivering outstanding black-and-white photography and 4k video with an unparalleled level of natural detail and sharpness in the most accessible way. With its newly developed 47MP monochrome CMOS sensor, the fastest lens in its class and up to ISO100.000, the dust and spray water proof Leica Q2 Monochrom excels in every situation, especially in extreme lowlight conditions.
