Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

IF THAT RED M262 (pre­vi­ous page) is a bit much for you, how about the even more ex­clu­sive Aus­tralia Edi­tion of the Le­ica Q? Only 30 ex­am­ples of this lim­ited edi­tion are avail­able, and the fixed-lens full-35mm cam­era is fin­ished in a very smart sil­ver and ce­ment grey, with a match­ing hand strap and neck strap. You also get a lim­ited edi­tion slip-cased book by Mel­bourne pho­tog­ra­pher Jesse Marlow, ti­tled Any­thing Can Hap­pen And Prob­a­bly Will. Ad­di­tion­ally, the $7000 pur­chase price in­cludes a one-day street pho­tog­ra­phy ex­pe­ri­ence with Jesse in Syd­ney.

The Le­ica Q has a fixed Sum­milux 28mm f1.7 ASPH lens matched to a 26.3 megapix­els CMOS sen­sor. While it’s styled to look very much like the clas­sic M rangefinder models, the Q has an elec­tronic viewfinder (with 3.68 megadots res­o­lu­tion), aut­o­fo­cus­ing with 169 mea­sur­ing points, multi-zone me­ter­ing with a full set of ‘PASM’ ex­po­sure con­trol modes, a sen­sor-based shut­ter with a top speed of 1/16,000 sec­ond, Full HD video record­ing, built-in WiFi and an ex­ten­sive set of touch­screen con­trols. Bonza, eh?

The Le­ica Q Aus­tralia Edi­tion is avail­able now from the Le­ica Store in Syd­ney’s Queen Vic­to­ria Build­ing or on­line at le­ica-store. com.au Pull your fin­ger out if you want one be­cause these’ll go quicker than a rat up a drain­pipe. Visit www.
