The Leica Q series has won a legion of fans since its launch in 2015, with its sophisticated design, user-friendly operation, and superior craftsmanship. The fixed focal length full-frame compact camera has become a favorite of street, travel, and everyday photographers around the world. The Leica Q3 builds upon the success of its predecessors, promising exceptional photo and video, along with an array of new features.

The Leica Q3 becomes the latest camera to feature Leica’s latest new BSI-CMOS sensor, incorporating Triple-Resolution-Technology, allowing users to choose between three resolutions – 60, 36, or 18 megapixels, all using the full width of the sensor. The 60-megapixel resolution offers the finest details for large prints and displays while opting for 36 or 18 megapixels enables faster operation, longer continuous shooting, smaller file sizes, as well as a small boost in dynamic range. The Leica Q3 has an ISO sensitivity range of ISO 50 to 100,000 and the latest Maestro Series processor with L2 Technology powers the camera.
