The new Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) is the first and only digital camera that captures a real black and white image, still or moving.  Reduced to the essentials for true, authentic and direct black and white photography, the Leica M Monochrom offers unparalleled image performance, outstanding low light capabilities and rich details. 

Black and white photography is the essence of photography. Leica produced the first first digital monochrome camera in the 35 mm format and the new Leica M Monochrom is a step into the next generation. For a complete review and sample images, visit Red Dot Forum.

Sensor

The Leica M Monochrom has a 24-megapixel resolution on a monochrom CMOS sensor similar to the Leica M. As the M Monochrom has no need for color filters, it needs no interpolation for the calculation of luminance values. This results in brilliant images which have 100% more details and contrast than what is possible in color photography.

Up to ISO 25,000

The new Leica M Monochrom opens up new dimensions for available-light photography with its combination of low noise up to ISO 25,000, a bright viewfinder, a low-vibration shutter release and fast lenses.

Full Visual Control with Live View

The high-resolution 3” monitor with 921,600 pixels ensures that photographers have complete control of composition, exposure, focusing and depth of field. The Live View also offers two additional focusing methods. The up to 10x magnification in Live View Zoom mode enables full control of the sharpness of details in the image on the monitor or the closest focusing distance. In Live View Focus Peaking mode, sharply focused edges in the image are highlighted by colored lines.

Full HD Video in Black and White

The new Leica M Monochrom captures high-quality, full-HD video in black and white. With the optional Leica microphone adapter set, one can be assured of perfect sound.

2 GB Buffer Memory

With it’s high-capacity 2GB buffer memory and Leica Maestro processor, the camera captures sequences 3 times faster than its predecessor. In addition, the new processor enables extremely fast display of the captured images in review mode.

Sapphire Crystal Glass

The LC display is made of scratch-resistant and almost unbreakable sapphire crystal which has been treated with an anti-reflective protective coating that ensures that photographers can check their images in any lighting situation.

Accessories 

All current M accessories for the Leica M (Typ 240) can be used with the Leica M Monochrom. These accessories include finger loops, electronic view finder, ever-ready cases, flash and straps. In addition, R-lenses can be used on the Leica M Monochrom with the Leica M-Adapter-R.

  • Metering Principle

    By metering the light reflected by light blades of the 1st shutter curtain onto a measuring cell: strong center-weighted; for metering on the sensor: spot, center-weighted, multi-field metering.

  • Metering Range

    (to ISO 320, room temperature and normal relative humidity:) EV 0 (with aperture 1.0) to EV 20 (with aperture 32). Flashing of the left-hand triangular LED in the viewfinder signals that the exposure meter reading is below the working range.
