Leica Reinvents Black & White

Leica is a true photographers camera company, producing the highest quality specialty cameras available. Now the high standards of the world’s first digital black-and-white camera are carried forward into the next generation – and exceeded – with the Leica M Monochrom.

Offering black-and-white photography with unrivaled speed, the Leica M Monochrom not only features the same high-performance processor as its counterpart with colour vision, the Leica M, but also offers the extra speed reserves of a 2 GB buffer memory. This enables sequential shooting at three times the speed of the previous model – with pictures in the exceptional M quality photographers expect.

As the Leica M Monochrom has no need for a colour filter, there’s also no need to calculate luminance values by interpolation. The result: black-and-white pictures with unrivalled sharpness – even when shooting in low light.
