We were sent a full production sample Q before its launch, so we've been able to put it through its paces for this review.Leica has a long history and a reputation for making high quality cameras and lenses along traditional lines.Sensitivity may be set from ISO 100 to 50,000, with an automatic setting to put the camera in control and there's a maximum continuous shooting rate of up to 10fps (frames per second) at full resolution.
Living abroad in Spain can make it even more disastrous as you try to navigate the rules of engagement in a new territory.
Here are Sally Fazakerley's top tips of exactly what to do online.
Make your language level clear on your profile Although there are other sluttier ways to communicate besides talking, I would add your language skills to your profile anyway.
If you have been on a few dates here as a single lady, you know the agony of one where you barely understand each other.
There's also a Leica Maestro II processing engine like the one in Leica's medium format camera, that has been specially adapted for use in the Q and a Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH lens, which makes a good 'walkabout' lens with plenty of scope for restricting depth of field.
Although this is a fixed focal length lens there are digital zoom settings equivalent to 35mm and 50mm, which reduce image size to 15.4 and 7.5MP respectively.
When the digital zoom is used, the smaller frame is shown in the viewfinder, but the scene is still displayed in the surrounding area and raw files contain the information for the entire 28mm field.
Other modern features of the Q include the ability to record MP4 Full-HD video at 30 or 60fps with stereo sound via the built-in mic, optical image stabilisation for still and video and both Wi-Fi and NFC (near Field Communication) connectivity to allow remote control by a smartphone or tablet as well as image sharing using Leica's free Q app.
