The following video presents The New Leica Q-P: “The Leica Q-P is a further model of Leica Camera’s high-performance compact cameras with a full-frame sensor and a fast prime lens. Lacking the Leica red dot logo, but instead featuring a restrained, classic Leica script engraved on the top plate, the discreet design of the Leica Q-P sets it apart from the existing Leica Q models in silver and black. The matt black paint finish of the camera body is especially resilient and underlines its refined and elegant looks. A new feature of the Leica Q-P is a shutter release button that replicates those of the Leica M and CL cameras.“
Leica announced a new premium version of the Leica Q full-frame compact camera, the Leica Q-P. In technical terms, the Leica Q-P is identical to the Leica Q (Typ 116) except for the color of the casing.
The key benefits include:
The discreet Leica Q-P replaces the front-facing red Leica dot logo with a restrained, classic script logo engraving on the top plate.
The new paint finish in a high-resistance flat matte black “gives the camera an even darker black look and subtle textured feel.”
Leica Q-P package includes an adjustable-length high quality brown leather strap and two rechargeable batteries .
Improved shutter release button and on/off switch.
Compatibility with Leica FOTOS app.
Made in Germany.

Furthermore, the LUMIX GH5 is also capable of 4:2:2 10-bit* 4K 30p / 25p internal video recording as well as outputting even more faithful color reproduction for the first time as a digital interchangeable lens camera. The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets users record overcranked / undercranked video in 4K (60 fps, maximum 2.5x slower) and FHD (180 fps, maximum 7.5x slower). The GH5 complies with V-LogL video recording with the purchase of the DMW-SFU1 Upgrade Software Key. Use of Upgrade Software Key also activates LUT (Look Up Table) in the camera so users can play videos recorded in V-LogL on the camera. Practical tools like Waveform Monitor and Vector Scope have also been added.
