Design

1.Weather sealed
?

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

Leica Q2
2.Has a flip-out screen
?

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Leica Q2
3.Has a built-in focus motor
?

The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Leica Q2
4. more viewfinder coverage
?

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

5.Is dustproof and water resistant
?

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

Leica Q2
6.has an optical viewfinder
?

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.

For example

Pentax K-1 + Pentax D FA 24-70mm HD f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Leica Q2

Optics

1.has AF tracking
?

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Leica Q2
2. more focus points
?

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

3. larger sensor
?

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

4. wider aperture at minimum focal length
?

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
?

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

Leica Q2
6. higher maximum light sensitivity
?

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

Videography

1. better video recording quality (main camera)
?

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
?

A phase detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Leica Q2
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
?

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

Leica Q2
4.Has timelapse function
?

A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.

Leica Q2
5.has a 24p cinema mode
?

24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Leica Q2
6.supports AVCHD format
?

AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.

For example

Pentax K-1 + Pentax D FA 24-70mm HD f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Leica Q2

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
?

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

Leica Q2
2.has a microphone input
?

A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Leica Q2
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
?

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

For example

Pentax K-1 + Pentax D FA 24-70mm HD f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Leica Q2
4.has stereo speakers
?

Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
