Leica has just announced a new global camera called the Leica Q2 Monochrom. The Q2 Monochrom is the latest member of the company’s Q camera line. Previously, the company announced the Leica Q2 full-frame camera more than a year ago in March 2019.
Similar to the Leica Q2, its Monochrom version features a fixed lens system but includes a black and white image sensor instead of a color one. The black and white functionality of the latest Leica Q2 Monochrom camera is similar to Leica M10 Monochrom. The Q2 Monochrom is a niche product in the camera market as it is capable of clicking only black and white photos.
