The Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) is the latest version of the M Monochrom, a camera which shoots only in black-and-white. The new version however offers significant improvements on the image quality of predecessors by using an all-new 24-megapixel black-and-white CMOS sensor. The camera is also equipped with Full HD video recording.
The Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) is powered by a sensor that doesn't have a color filter array or optical low filter. This allows it to deliver images that are sharper and offer greater clarity and depth.
Black-and-white images may seem like a relic of the past but they have always remained favored by many photographers. This camera uses the latest technology to embrace an old-world school of photography.
