Leica has announced the new Leica Q3 (buy here), with some pretty massive upgrades over its predecessor, the Leica Q2 (buy here). For a start, the already high-resolution full-frame 47-megapixel CMOS sensor has been replaced by a 60-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor. Perhaps the same sensor as that contained in the recently announced Leica M11 (buy here).
It’s also capable of shooting 8K video at up to 30 frames per second, 4K up to 60fps in ProRes HQ at 10-bit 4:2:2. It has phase-detect autofocus and contains Leica’s “triple-resolution technology”, first announced in the Leica M11, which lets it shoot 60-megapixel, 36-megapixel or 18-megapixel images in either DNG raw or JPG format.
