New Leica Digiscoping Adapters


The Leica APO-Televid Spotting Scopes are now compatible with the Q camera using a specially-designed adapter ring for fast and easy mounting. This turns the wide-angle Q into a 700-1400mm monster, taking full advantage of the 24-megapixel full frame sensor and Summilux lens. Adding in the 1.8x extender allows for up to a 2,550mm lens equivalent.

For those without Q bodies, Leica has a 35mm objective lens integrated with a ring adapter to mount to your favorite camera body, including the T, SL, or any M body with live view. On an APS-C sensor, the Digiscoping Objective Lens covers a range or 775mm to 1,550mm, and over 3,000mm with the 1.8x extender. 35mm Objective Lenses to start shipping in late April of 2016, so swing in and get yours reserved today!

Leica Firmware Available for the Q Typ 116

Leica Camera has released firmware update version 1.1 for the Q Typ 116 camera,improving the image quality in lower ISO settings along with a few bug fixes.

Bug Fixes:

  • Exposure has been corrected in digiscoping mode after switching off and on again.
  • Improvement of the Live View in monochrome mode in combination with AF tracking. After installation of the new firmware the Live View now shows a monochrome image. For proper focusing the camera switches to color when pressing the shutter button half way.
