Life is full of moments worth preserving. The new Leica Q-P is the perfect instrument for achieving your photographic ambitions and transforming the decisive moments of your life into lasting memories.

The integrated viewfinder of the Leica Q-P is activated as soon as the camera is brought up to the eye. It faithfully displays the camera’s image at any time, right down to the smallest detail and without any perceptible delay.
With its resolution of 3.68 MP, it is ideal for taking pictures in backlight situations, even the smallest details of the image are reliably displayed at all times.More Details
The autofocus is also outstanding, capturing with ultimate sharpness at maximum speed. The new Maestro II series processor works extremely rapidly and allows a serial image speed of up to 10 frames per second at full resolution.
And of course, the images are instantly available as a JPEG in playback mode.
Intuitive, ergonomic, pragmatic. The controls of the Leica Q-P provide quick access to all relevant options and opportunities. For example, auto-focus can be set either using buttons or via the touch screen.
Prefer to focus manually? Then let the innovative Live View aids “Focus-Peaking” and “Live View Zoom” assist you. Easy to use, the Leica Q-P helps you implement your ideas perfectly - at the press of a button.
The built-in Wi-Fi module on the Leica Q-P makes it easy to share your pictures and videos on social networks. Images can be downloaded conveniently to your smartphone via WLAN and the complimentary Leica FOTOS app.
The app also allows the Leica Q-P to be operated remotely. For example, set the time and aperture on your smartphone and use it as a remote-control release.More Details
In this way, blur-free long exposures and recordings are possible from unusual angles – and also as moving images. What’s more, you can record video in Full-HD and web-friendly MP4.
The Leica maxim 'focusing on the essentials' also applies to the Leica Q-P’s exterior design.
It lacks the Leica red-dot logo, but features a discreet, classic Leica script engraved on the top plate, matte-black paint finish and a redesigned shutter release button. Made in Germany, the high quality materials and outstanding craftmanship guarantee maximum durability.More Details
The new Leica Q-P also comes complete with a new carrying strap in the finest brown leather, and an additional battery.
The thumb rest on the back of the camera and the diamond pattern of the exterior finish make the Leica Q-P beautifully easy to grip.
