Gadget : iLLeica Q


A simple point and shoot camera that costs $4,000 (about Shs13.4m) seems very expensive. But the Leica Q from the renowned German manufacturer is no normal point and shoot camera. It’s a famed far and wide for optical quality of its lenses. The gadget’s tank like construction of its body and its iconic little red dot proudly stand out.
The Leica Q is a whole new model of a full frame camera with a fixed focal length lens aimed primarily at professionals and ultra-enthusiastic amateurs.
The highlight of this camera is that it offers the best in class image quality with low effort operation in a compact body unlike most interchangeable lens finder cameras hence the price tag. Its sensor is 24.2MP with a Leica maestro image processor. It also has full HD 1080 pixels video output. But for its 3 inch dot touchscreen LCD monitor the Leica Q also has inbuilt Wi-Fi connectivity.
If one is willing to stomach an eye watering price tag of $4,000 (about Shs13.4m) then it’s a gadget to own.
