Leica has rebranded several Panasonic cameras and has produced the Leica Q, which is a fixed- lens compact camera with 24 megapixels and a full- frame image sensor. It produces quality images, great attention to detail, flexibility and is newly designed for consumers. It also features a LCD touch- screen, electronic viewfinder with high resolution and a wide-angle lens (which is one of the most key features). The Leica Q has faster processing than seen in previous versions of Leica camera and can offer 10 fps bursts when snapping full resolution images. Additional features include Wi-Fi capability and the ability to share photos using NFC; there is also an app designed for capturing photos using a remote. The only downfall to this beautiful device is the hefty price tag. It goes for $4, 250 on the US markets, while in the United Kingdom, it sells for £2, 900 and was released back in 2015.
