A Match Made In Heaven

Why is Leica the perfect collaboration for Walt Disney? 100 years ago, Walt Disney started to bring his vision and passion to animated filmmaking. Even then the legend has been creating sophisticated cartoon storyboards using Leica (then called Leitz) cameras and projectors since the very early days of animation.

A Special Anniversary

Leica Q2 DisneyTo mark the anniversary of the film studios, Disney and Leica are now unveiling the closely guarded secret of their groundbreaking collaboration, namely the special limited-edition Leica Q2 Disney “100 Years of Wonder” camera.

A New Standard

Disney dramatically changed the techniques of animated filmmaking thanks to the innovative Leica instruments of the time and did so with such lasting effect that the term “Leica Reel” was coined during this period. “Leica Reels” are made from animated stills run on 35mm film projections and the Leica Q2 is sure to do the same.

In this advanced process, the preliminary artwork is aligned with a soundtrack using combined techniques to get a very precise sense of the pace of a sequence. The design applied to the special edition of the Leica Q2 camera dates back to a model sheet created in 1937 by one of Walt Disney Studio’s noted animators, Don Towsley.

A New Look

In addition, a Mickey Mouse print adorns the Leica Q2 camera’s top plate. The special edition also includes a protective dust bag with matching original Disney graphics and a special rope strap.

The Leica Q2 camera reveals an evocative imagination from first glance and it is adorned with a very special material reminiscent of the tracing paper on which Disney’s creators penciled scenes and characters. This gives the camera a sophisticated aesthetic and also makes it more interesting for collectors.Leica Q2 Disney
