type, so you can change the settings and set the focus point with your fingertips.
Q Typ 116 has a built-in Electronic viewfinder. The viewfinder has a resolution of 3,680kdots and coverage of 100%. 100% coverage ensures that what you see in the viewfinder while shooting matches exactly what you will get later in your image, helping accurate framing your shots and minimizes the need for cropping images later.

and has max shutter speed of 1/2000 sec
. Q Typ 116 also has an electronic shutter which can shoot silently at max speed of 1/16000s
. One thing to keep in mind is that electronic shutter may cause rolling shutter effects on your images in certain conditions.
Unfortunately Q Typ 116 doesn't have a built-in flash but it has a flash shoe for mounting external flashes.
Leica Q features a Contrast Detection autofocusing system. Leica Q also features Face detection AF
where it intelligently detects the faces in the frame and locks the focus automatically.

Full HD resolution of Leica Q will be adequate in most of the situations. But if you are after the highest resolution videos available, see our list of Top Cameras with 4K (Ultra-HD) Video
. You can also consider its successor, the Leica Q2
