Leica Q2 „Dawn” by Seal

"Photography is storytelling in one sentence" -Seal
The limited, special edition Leica Q2 “Dawn” by Seal pays tribute to the soulful lyrics of the artist’s songs. The special edition camera set celebrates the human connection in the art of making a photograph, shining light on the subjects of a frame – while the artist visualizes new perspectives behind the lens. The exquisite, Japanese woven fabric covering of the Leica Q2 “Dawn” by Seal, is crafted to ensure each of the 500 cameras in the edition are distinctly unique.

Leica Q2 “Dawn” by Seal – each signature camera is a one of a kind.

It is the elegant cover fabric that makes each Q2 “Dawn” by Seal unique. The particular mood during morning twilight, the interplay of dark and light, is captured in the mysterious, iridescent material. The Japanese term “komorebi” inspired the fabric, describing the transparency and light play, which occurs when sunbeams fall through the tree canopy. Time and time again, the impression created by the Q2 “Dawn” by Seal's shimmering cover surprises and lends the camera its incomparable character. Limited to 500 units, each special edition camera is a one of a kind.

The set – a homage to the moment 

Seal photographs with fast lenses in natural lighting conditions. In tune with his music, his pictures evoke emotions, shining light on the beauty and humanity of the moment – aligning with the aesthetic philosophy of the limited edition set.

In addition to the exclusive scarf designed by Annina Roescheisen and featuring Seal's song lyrics, a rope strap completes the set. The elegant strap is also adorned with the hand-written line “You became the light on the dark side of me”, from the song Kiss from a Rose. Seal was honored with three Grammy Awards for the song in 1996; furthermore, it reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts in the USA. In addition to the iridescent fabric produced by the traditional Japanese brand Hosoo, the Q2 “Dawn” by Seal features a black Leica logo, Seal's signature engraved on the display glass, and an edition number from 001 to 500.

This specialized camera is an advanced compact camera characterized by its updated sensor design and intuitive operation. Revolving around a revised full-frame 47.3MP CMOS sensor and Maestro II image processor, high-resolution stills shooting is possible along with both DCI and UHD 4K video recording. The image processor also contributes to a broad ISO 50-50000 sensitivity range along with quick 10-fps full-resolution continuous shooting. The added resolution also affords a series of unique Crop Modes, which simulate working with longer focal length lenses, including 35mm, 50mm, and 75mm fields of view.

 

The camera features the same impressive wide-angle prime Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. fixed lens, which has been matched to the sensor design for exceptional resolution and clarity. The lens's design incorporates three aspherical elements and its bright f/1.7 maximum aperture suits working in low-light conditions. Additionally, a macro setting permits working with subjects as close as 6.7" away.

 

Complementing the imaging and optical assets, the Q2 remains an especially compact and intuitive camera, well-suited for street and travel photography. Its sleek magnesium alloy body is weather sealed for working in trying environments and it has adopted the same battery featured in the flagship SL mirrorless camera for longer battery life. A high-resolution 3.68MP OLED electronic viewfinder is featured for fluid and clear eye-level monitoring and a rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD also affords straightforward playback and settings control. Built-in Bluetooth LE and Wi-Fi permit wireless sharing and remote camera control from a linked mobile device via the Leica FOTOS app.

 

47.3MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and Maestro II Processor

 

Featuring a redeveloped imaging system, the Q2 incorporates a high-resolution 47.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor along with an updated Maestro II image processor, which lends more flexible image creation along with smooth color and tonal rendering, a broad 13-stop dynamic range, low noise, and a wide sensitivity range from ISO 50-50000. Processing capabilities also afford fast shooting performance, up to 10 fps at full-resolution with a mechanical shutter, along with an especially quick 49-area autofocus system. Stills can be recorded as 14-bit DNG files and JPEGs. The added resolution also enables unique digital zoom capabilities to simulate working with different focal length lenses: 30MP images can be created using a 35mm field of view, 15MP images with a 50mm field of view, and 7MP with a 75mm field of view.

 

In addition to stills, the Q2 features improved video recording with the ability to shoot both DCI 4K24p and UHD 4K30p video, along with high-speed Full HD recording at up to 120p.

 

Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens

 

Key to the popularity of the Q-series is the incorporation of a fixed Summilux 28mm f/1.7 wide-angle prime lens. Blending Leica's optical know-how with a design perfectly matched to the image sensor, this lens incorporates three aspherical elements to control distortion and spherical aberrations for sharp and accurate rendering. Its fast f/1.7 maximum aperture also excels in low-light conditions and offers improved control over depth of field. Extending its versatility, a dedicated macro focusing position can also be used for working with subjects as close as 6.7" away. Additionally, optical image stabilization helps to compensate for the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
