The Leica Q sports a 24MP full-frame sensor and other drool-worthy features

Earlier today, many Leica fans and the media in Malaysia were treated to the unveiling of the new Leica Q. Equipped with a full-frame sensor and a Leica Summilux 28mm f/1.7 lens, the Leica Q means business.

The Leica Q has a 24MP full-frame sensor, shoots up to 1/16,000s, and has integrated Wi-Fi capabilities. It's priced at RM16,500.

This camera has a 24MP sensor that has an ISO range of 100 to 50,000 and has the ability to capture images in the DNG format, in addition to the standard JPEG. Perhaps the most exciting feature about this camera though, is the fact that its maximum shutter speed goes up to 16,000th of a second and can sync to selected flash up to speeds of 1/55s. Other features include a 3-inch TFT LCD monitor with 1.04 million pixels and touch control support.

What's more, the Leica Q has an integrated Wi-Fi module, which allows you to easily transfer photos to a mobile device. You'll need the Leica App, which is available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
