Review: Leica's quirky Q, the ultimate full-frame street shooter

Priced at a truly scary US$4,250, the Leica Q looks very limited on paper. It seems like a travesty to take a gorgeous full-frame sensor and saddle it with a single, fixed 28mm lens. But the combination allows for a very compact and light design, with crazy-fast autofocus and a beautiful high-definition electronic viewfinder to go with its near-silent shutter and sumptuous optics.

Polar Pro is attempting to address this issue with the launch of the PowerVault, a GoPro carrying case which can charge a GoPro battery five times thanks to its own built-in battery.
