Leica Announces Bond Partnership
007 Edition camera and exhibition to celebrate new film

LEICA Q2 ‘007 Edition | Michael G. Wilson

Leica Camera has announced a new Leica Q2 ‘007 Edition’ to celebrate the release of No Time To Die. Limited to 250 pieces only, the 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 and comes in a customised and handcrafted case designed by the British luxury suitcase brand Globe-Trotter.

The concept of a Leica x 007 partnership began with producer Michael G. Wilson. Wilson is a leading expert on 19th century photography and founded The Wilson Centre for Photography, his passion for photography provided the natural spark for the collaboration. In No Time To Die, Leica worked with the 007 production team to display Leica cameras on the sets of Bond’s Jamaican home, and fittingly the ‘Leica Q2’ in Q’s home in London. Off-screen, Michael G. Wilson has curated an exclusive photography exhibition featuring behind-the-scenes photographs shot on Leica cameras by Michael G. Wilson, Daniel Craig, and No Time To Die photographers Nicola Dove and Greg Williams.

The Leica Q2 ‘007 Edition’ will launch on September 9, 2021 at the official opening of Leica Gallery London’s exhibition: No Time To Die – Behind the Scenes.
