Features and technical details

Back-to-basics design, state-of-the-art features Leica's Q2 Monochrom reminds you what you loved about black and white photography in the first place - but with modern features and convenience. Leica's Q2 Monochrom camera offers a raft of modern features that can help you produce brilliant-looking black and white images with just the press of the shutter button. But for me, that's not its biggest attraction. What I love about this camera's design is the way it takes me back to the foundation of good photography.

You can't change the lens, so that's one less thing to think about - although you can use the digital zoom crop modes to approximate 35mm, 50mm, and 75mm lenses. Modern technology and options There's a lot to be thankful for with regard the Q2 Monochrom's modern features. The full frame 47.3-megapixel sensor can capture gobs of detail, and its lack of color filter array makes for tack-sharp images. The amazing ISO range - 100-100,000 - means low light is no problem. Rely on high-speed autofocus or use aperture or shutter speed priority to have the camera give you an assist in composing shots. Shoot 4K video when you'd ra
