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.

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.

Image Sensor B/W CMOS chip, active area approx. 23.9 × 35.8 mm (corresponds to usable format of analog Leica M models) without color and low-pass filter.
Exposure Modes Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture preselection – aperture priority A, or manual shutter speed and aperture setting.
Exposure Metering Through-the-lens (TTL) metering, with variable aperture, center-weighted TTL metering for flash exposure with system-compliant SCA-3000/2 standard flash units.
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.
Shutter Speed For aperture priority: (A)continuous from 60 s to 1/4000 s. For manual adjustment: 8 s to 1/4000 s in half steps. B:for time exposures up to max. 60 s (in conjunction with self-timer T function, i.e. 1st release = shutter opens, 2nd release = shutter clo
