Leica debuted the M Monochrom back in 2012, with the camera representing a departure for digital by including a specially-developed monochrome sensor. With the M Monochrom Typ 246, Leica expands on this development. Touted as the premier digital camera for black and white imagery (either moving or still), the device is composed of premium magnesium alloy and solid brass plating, making a body built to last as long as its artist. Of particular note, Leica addresses those concerned about the quality of black and white photos in low-light situations by engineering the Typ 246 to shoot as high as 25,000 ISO. 24 megapixels and a live view feature through the 3” LCD screen also help to ensure quality control. Enthusiasts can pick up this version of the M Monochrom Typ 246 beginning in May at select Leica retailers and doors.
