Leica Q – Cheaper Battery Options..and Crop Mode
By Ted Krohn
The Leica Q battery, when it becomes available…will be $195 (You’ve got to be kidding me!!!)
It turns out that the Leica Q battery is the same as the Leica V-Lux battery. The Leica V-Lux battery (BP-DC12) at B&H is $85
The Panasonic equivalent (or sibling) of the Leica V-Lux battery (BLC12PP) at B&H is $46!
Bought two of them and I am a happy camper!
Camera continues to blow me away! On a tripod, I attached a Canon 500D closeup screw-on filter lens with a step-up ring. Then I took three pictures @ 28mm, 35mm and 50mm in camera crop and wow! I focused on the second stem from the right. See below.
