EISA Awards Leica Q Premium Compact Camera 2015-2016

EISA has awarded the Leica Q (Type 116) camera the "European Premium Camera of 2015-2016." They write, "The Leica Q is a hugely impressive camera that combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional design. The 28mm wide-angle lens is incredibly sharp and the fast electronic shutter, means you can shoot wide open at f/1.7 even in bright sunlight. The 24-million-pixel full frame sensor gives superb image quality, even at high ISO settings, and the traditional control dials give intuitive shooting. The 3.7M-dot electronic viewfinder pairs well with the smoothly-damped focus ring for manual focusing, while the touchscreen makes autofocusing away from the centre of the frame easy. These elements all combine to make the Q the best digital camera Leica has yet made, despite its high price." Read more below for video!

You can check out the images seen in the video over here and more on his website and also catch up with him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Read more below!
