In homage to Hodinkee, the Leica M10-P “Ghost Edition” is distinguished by a unique exterior design. The top and base plates are lacquered in a warm, matte gray. This is perfectly complemented by the concrete-gray tone of the camera’s cowhide leather trim. “The Leica M10-P Ghost Edition for Hodinkee is the result of a decades-long fascination with how timeless objects age, and almost evolve with time” Benjamin Clymer, CEO and founder of Hodinkee.
In the realm of Leica as a brand, their iconic Leica M10-P “Ghost Edition” For Hodinkee, introduced back in 2019, served as a spectral precursor. Now, it is their esteemed Q2 camera that has been graced with the Ghost treatment. The recently unveiled Leica Q2 “Ghost” Set by Hodinkee presents a distinctive colorway that pays homage to the world of professional-grade point-and-shoot cameras, a realm only truly achievable through the artistry of Leica.
As dedicated watch enthusiasts often in need of capturing wristshots without the hassle of switching cameras, Hodinkee has long been a fervent admirer of the Q platform. The Q2, in particular, elevates the standards with its versatile feature set. Despite its compact and portable nature, it boasts a full-frame sensor, lightning-quick autofocus, and an exceptional prime lens. This single-camera solution effortlessly handles an array of photography needs, from exquisite wrist shots to family portraits and memorable vacation snapshots. The Leica Q2 “Ghost” Set By Hodinkee not only pays tribute to the aesthetics of beloved timepieces but also serves as a heartfelt ode to one of their cherished, and frequently utilized, Leica cameras.
This limited edition comprises only 150 complete sets and deviates significantly from the conventional black finish seen on the standard Leica Q2 body. The camera’s magnesium alloy frame is swathed in a gentle shade of grey and encased in smooth tonal grey leather, specially coated to ensure the Leica Q2 “Ghost” can withstand the elements. A first for the Q2, the lens receives an anodized silver finish, reminiscent of the steel casing found on robust dive watches, harmonizing with the subtlety of the Ghost colorway. In a pursuit of monochromatic elegance, the iconic “red dot” Leica logo has been omitted, and the top plate signature adopts Leica’s vintage script, yet another shade of warm grey, mirroring the approach taken with the Leica M10-P “Ghost Edition” for Hodinkee.
To complete the grey and spectral aesthetic, the Leica Q2 “Ghost” Set By Hodinkee includes a silver aluminum thumb grip and a grey woven Leica rope strap, similar to the one offered with the “Ghost Edition” M10-P. On the rear of the camera, surrounding the Q2’s 3-inch LCD display, lies a discreet engraving that reads “GHOST SET BY HODINKEE” above the display, accompanied below by the specific set number within the Hodinkee limited edition. These meticulous details converge to ensure that the Leica Q2 Ghost stands as a distinct and collectible limited edition of an already exceptional camera.
Originally introduced in 2019 as the second iteration of Leica’s versatile camera, the Q2 is meticulously crafted in Germany. It features a magnesium alloy body housing a formidable 47.3-megapixel full-frame sensor, delivering breathtaking high-resolution imagery and 4K video capabilities. This sensor is paired with the razor-sharp Summilux 28mm f1.7 lens, celebrated for its rapid autofocus and dedicated macro mode for capturing intricate details up close. The Q2’s high-resolution digital viewfinder ensures that no shot is missed, whether you’re capturing grand vistas or intimate details.
Remarkably, despite its cutting-edge sensor and renowned Leica optics, the Q2 remains comfortably handheld. Its classic design is both dust and spray waterproof, meeting the IP52 standard. With user-friendly controls, exceptional performance, and Wi-Fi connectivity for seamless photo transfer, the Q2 seamlessly melds form and function into a modern everyday camera. This special creation now embraces the Ghost coloration and unique details, enhancing one of Leica’s most contemporary, versatile, and proficient cameras. While the subject of your photography remains a personal choice, for everyday moments or far-flung landscapes, the Q2 stands as the camera of choice for those who appreciate both aesthetics and capability.
