Leica, the German company is well-known for its limited edition offerings of cameras that are released in small numbers, aimed especially for collectors. The company’s new Leica Q “Snow” version now joins the heritage with a limited 300 units. The camera is designed by Swiss Olympic gold medallist snowboarder and Leica photographer, Iouri Podladtchikov.
The “Snow” version features the redesigned exterior with a feel of winter – pure white cowhide leather with silver anodization over the aluminum body and dials. The red accent on top also spices the overall design of the camera. The camera itself features a full-frame 24-megapixel sensor, industry-leading IVF, and a fixed Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH lens.
The 300 limited units are marked individually with the numbers on it. The Q Snow will be released in March for a price of $5,395, a $1,145 premium over the standard Leica Q that costs $4,250.
