Leica Camera, renowned for its precision engineering and superior optics, has introduced the Leica Q3, the latest addition to its highly acclaimed Leica Q family. Boasting a timeless design, exceptional craftsmanship, and effortless operation, the Leica Q3 stands out as a fixed focal length full-frame camera preferred by photographers, creatives, and subjects alike. This cutting-edge camera represents the next evolutionary step in the unique camera segment, offering unparalleled photo and video capabilities.
At the heart of the Leica Q3 lies the revolutionary BSI-CMOS sensor with Triple-Resolution-Technology, providing users with three resolution options: 60, 36, or 18 megapixels. With the ability to capture raw images in DNG format or process JPEG files straight from the camera, users can expect exceptional image quality and stunning detail. The Leica Q3 utilizes the entire sensor size for all resolutions, offering a sensitivity range of ISO 50 to 100,000, while the advanced Maestro Series processor with L2 Technology ensures swift performance.
One of the most significant advancements in the Leica Q3 is its autofocus system. The camera features a new hybrid autofocus system with phase detection, enabling lightning-fast and accurate focusing and object tracking. In conjunction with high-precision contrast autofocus, the DFD system, phase detection autofocus, and intelligent subject recognition, users can effortlessly capture sharp and brilliant images. These visuals are showcased crisply and clearly through the camera’s new 5.76-megapixel OLED viewfinder.
Additionally, the Leica Q3 offers a tiltable 3-inch high-resolution touchscreen with a flexible tilting mechanism, allowing photographers to explore unique viewing angles and unleash their creativity. Despite the movable display, the camera maintains its resistance to dust and spray water, thanks to its IP52 certification. The Leica Q3 embraces advanced technology with its Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) capability, resulting in significantly faster transfer speeds via Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity to the Leica FOTOS app. This enhancement elevates the mobile creative workflow, providing photographers with a seamless and efficient experience.
Content creators will be delighted by the Leica Q3’s ability to record video in astounding 8K resolution, supporting highly efficient codecs such as H.265 and Apple’s ProRes. The camera allows for direct connection to external devices, including gimbals, power banks, and display recorders via USB-C and HDMI ports. Wireless charging has also been introduced with the Leica Charging Pad and a separate camera handgrip, enabling hassle-free recharging of the powerful BC-SCL6 battery and other Qi-compatible devices.
For photographers seeking maximum flexibility in image composition, the Leica Q3 offers extensive creative freedom.
