With the Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams, Leica Camera presents the first special edition of the Q2, created in close collaboration with the actor Daniel Craig and the renowned British photographer Greg Williams. Williams is known for authentically capturing iconic Hollywood moments. Greg Williams has photographed Daniel Craig since he first appeared as James Bond. This resulted in “Behind-the-Scenes” books and numerous Daniel Craig film posters. Craig and Williams share a passion for photography and are both fans of the Leica brand – so the collaboration was obvious.
The Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams is technically the same as the Leica Q2, but the visible elements of the camera are only in black and gold. All engravings on the camera and the lens are designed in gold. For the first time, the name and a serial number of the special edition were engraved under the glass cover of the camera display. A special feature is the Leica logo of this special edition: for the first time, a black dot with gold lettering adorns a Leica camera, making it unmistakable.
The eyelets for the shoulder strap are also gold-colored. The shoulder strap with Leica embossing is made of high-quality, Nappa leather. With a special diamond embossing, this leather is also used for the leather covering of the camera. The camera and accessories are delivered in a specially designed, black hinged box with a gold print, which is lined with black silk on the inside.
The Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams is limited to 750 copies and is now available to pre-order from Bhphotovideo.com retailer for $6995.
This limited edition camera features a full-frame 47.3MP CMOS sensor, Maestro II image processor, high-resolution stills shooting is possible along with both DCI and UHD 4K video recording.
