To ring in and celebrate the 2018 Winter Olympics, Leica Camera has released a special edition Leica Q “Snow” camera in partnership with Swiss Olympic gold medalist and world champion half-pipe snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov.
The edition is limited to only 300 examples for the worldwide market, each of which bears a special serial number. The technical specifications of the Leica Q “Snow” remain entirely unchanged from the standard Leica Q camera, complete with its 24-megapixel CMOS full-frame sensor, maximum ISO of 50,000, and its fixed Leica Summilux 28mm f/1.7 lens. To permit reliable control of subject composition, it is fitted with an integrated viewfinder with a resolution of 3.68 MP. Its clear and logical menu concept provides rapid access to all essential functions and enables users to programme personalised settings.
The Leica Q also delivers video recordings in full-HD quality. Depending on the scene and subject, users can choose between 30 and 60 full frames per second for video recording in MP4 format. The camera also features an integrated Wi-Fi module for wireless transmission of still pictures and video and remote control by WLAN from a smartphone or a tablet with the Leica Q App.
The leather that wraps around the front and back of the camera is a pure white premium cowhide leather that Leica says “gives the special edition its name and gives the user an exceptional grip with a luxurious touch and feel.”
The Leica Q ‘Snow’ by Iouri Podladtchikov set to launch in March 2018 at Leica stores, boutiques, and dealers around the world for $5,395.
