Wetzlar, 25 February 2021. Leica Camera presents an exclusive limited-edition camera, the Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams. Created in close collaboration with award-winning actor Daniel Craig and Greg Williams, Leica Ambassador and one of Britain’s most renowned photographers, acclaimed for capturing iconic Hollywood moments. Greg Williams has photographed Daniel Craig as James Bond since he first stepped into the role, creating behind-the-scenes books and special shoots as well as many of the Bond film posters. Both Craig and Williams have a common passion for photography and are both avid fans of Leica, making this an authentic collaboration for the pair.
Daniel Craig says: “The Q2 is, for me, the perfect camera and needs no improvement. So, to have the chance to work with the amazing people at Leica and my friend, Greg Williams to create something as unique as this, has been a privilege and an honour.”
Greg Williams says: “We bonded over our shared love of cameras on ‘Casino Royale’. Daniel takes beautiful photos and has a great eye. The Leica Q2 is an extension of me – you never see me without one around my neck. So, to work with Daniel and the team at Leica on this limited edition has been very special.”
While the Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams is technically identical to the Leica Q2, it has an exclusive and elegant design. The visible elements of the camera are defined by black and gold. All the engravings on the camera and lens are inlaid with gold paint. It also includes a first: the name and sequential serial number have been engraved with a laser located under the glass cover of the camera display. Another stand out feature of the Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams is the Leica logo, the traditional red dot with Leica lettering has been replaced with a black dot and gold lettering for the first time, making this camera uniquely distinctive.
The carrier strap is made of top-quality, vegetable-dyed Nappa leather that is embossed with the Leica logo and features gilded eyelets. The same leather, embossed with an elegant diamond pattern, is also used for the camera covering. Each camera, with accessories, comes in a specially designed, hinged-lid presentation box with gold lettering and a black silk lining.
The Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams is limited to 750 units and is available now at the Leica retail stores (book your virtual appointment here) or online at store.leica-camera.com/uk
