Today, Leica Camera has unveiled the new Leica Q2 “007 Edition” to celebrate the release of the 25th Bond adventure, No Time To Die. Limited to 250 pieces only, the camera exudes understated elegance – just like James Bond – marked by Leica’s signature minimalist design.
This special edition Leica Q2 features the iconic 007 logo on the top plate and the famous Bond gun barrel design on the lens cap. Each limited edition camera will be individually numbered, making the “007” camera a sought-after collectable. The camera comes in a customized and handcrafted case designed by the British luxury suitcase brand Globe-Trotter. Inspired by the bespoke Globe-Trotter cases that feature in No Time To Die, both the camera case and camera are finished in the same Ocean Green leather colorway.
The Leica Q2 007 Edition is an incredibly unique set paying homage to British cinema's longest running film franchise, featuring the following special design aspects and accoutrement:
- Black paint finish on the camera housing
- Bespoke ocean green leather covering by Globe-Trotter
- Included Globe-Trotter case in ocean green leather with black leather strap
- Iconic 007 logo in black glossy finish on the top of the camera
- Limited Edition number elegantly engraved under the rear display
- Metal lens cover with 007 gun barrel logo engraving
- Handgrip with Globe-Trotter ocean green leather to match the camera
- Finger Loop (size L) included
- Black fabric shoulder strap with ocean green Globe-Trotter leather bindings
- Certificate of Authenticity
- Same critically-acclaimed performance and technical specifications as standard Leica Q2
The concept of a Leica and 007 partnership began with Michael G. Wilson. Wilson, producer of the James Bond film series together with his sister Barbara Broccoli, is a leading expert on 19th century photography and founded The Wilson Centre for Photography. Wilson’s passion for photography provided the natural spark for the collaboration. Leica’s partnership with British cinema’s longest-running film franchise has seen the cameras play a role both on set and behind the scenes. In No Time To Die, Leica worked with the 007 production team to display Leica cameras on the sets of James Bond’s Jamaican home, and fittingly the Leica Q2 in Q’s home in London.
The Leica Q2 “007 Edition” will be launched on September 09, 2021 at the official opening of the Leica Gallery London exhibition: No Time to Die – Behind the Scenes, an exclusive photography exhibition featuring behind-the-scenes photos shot on Leica cameras. The photographs were taken by long- time producer Michael G. Wilson, James Bond actor Daniel Craig, and the renowned photographers Nicola Dove and Greg Williams. The exhibition will present an edit of 25 images curated by Michael G. Wilson.
Further exhibitions will be on show in Tokyo, Osaka, Vienna, Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Singapore, China, Seoul and Salzburg in September/October 2021. A portfolio of No Time To Die – Behind the Scenes will be published in the magazine Leica Fotografie International 7/2021, that will appear on September 20, 2021. No Time To Die will be released in the UK in September, 2021.
