Leica Q ‘Globe-Trotter’: A collector’s item imbued with superb German and British craftsmanship
London, 7 August 2018. Leica Camera AG is delighted to launch a limited edition version of its high-performance Leica Q: the Leica Q ‘Globe-Trotter’. Created in partnership with legendary luggage makers, Globe-Trotter, the new model is wrapped in specially selected Globe-Trotter leather in navy or light pink. As with all Leica cameras, the Leica Q ‘Globe-Trotter’ features the classic Leica ‘red dot’ logo on the front and limited edition serial number engraved on the top cover. The Leica Q ‘Globe-Trotter’ comes in a specially produced case based on the historic nine-inch Mini Trotter, encased in leather to match the camera body.
Both Leica and Globe-Trotter have a long history of tradition and superb craftsmanship cultivated over the years, leading to this collaboration. Today, all Globe-Trotter suitcases and travel accessories are handcrafted in Hertfordshire by highly skilled artisans. The case specially produced for this camera is based on the historic nine-inch Mini Trotter, a famous model for the Globe-Trotter brand. Instead of the usual vulcanized fibre material, this case is covered in the same colour Jet leather as the camera body. The inside of the case features dividers for organizing smaller items, a soft microfiber lining, and convenient inside pocket on the case lid which is perfect for carrying everyday items such as a wallet and mobile phone. The case also features a Bordeaux-coloured adjustable shoulder strap that matches the corner leather pieces for an elegant camera travel case and everyday styling typical of Globe-Trotter charm.
The Leica Q features a 24 million pixel full-frame sensor and high-performance, bright lens on a silver Leica Q body. Thanks to its particularly fast Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens, the Leica Q is perfect for photography in low light, for street photography, architecture and landscapes. All functions of the camera are clearly laid out and logically placed to guarantee perfect ergonomics. 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 Leica Q Globe-Trotter is limited to 50 pieces in each colour and is available now at the Leica stores in Mayfair, City of London, Manchester and selected authorised dealers. RRP: £5,400 inc VAT
