The camera comes in a customised and handcrafted case designed by the British luxury suitcase brand Globe-Trotter, another partner of No Time To Die (and a partner of 007 since 2012). The case is inspired by the bespoke Globe-Trotter cases that feature in No Time To Die. The camera case and camera are finished in the same Ocean Green leather colourway.

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 Exhibition will run from September 10th 2021 to October 15th 2021 at Leica Gallery, 64-66 Duke St, London W1K 6JD.

The Leica Q2 007 Edition is available to purchase online for example at the 007 Store, and in-store on September 9, 2021 at the price of £6,750.

In 2020, Leica had released a Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams edition, which was black and gold and sold for £4,667 / $6,995 (sold out). A standard Leica Q2 is available for $5,495 (for example online at Adorama).

Leica has another Bond link: in the novel Goldfinger, James Bond uses a Leica M3 to capture the methods of Auric Goldfinger.
