Leica M Monochrom Takes Only Black-and-White Pictures

The claim is that since “the sensor does not ‘see’ colors, every pixel records true luminance values … as a result, it delivers ‘true’ black-and-white images that are significantly sharper than comparable exposures from a camera with a color-sensitive sensor.”

The Leica M Monochrom, a variant of the M9, is a full-frame digital version of the company’s 35mm rangefinder camera.

At the touch of a button, images captured by the M Monochrom can be converted with characteristic toning effects from black-and-white film photography (sepia, cold or selenium toning). All users need to do is save the image in JPEG format and select the desired toning effect with no need for post-processing.

The Leica M Monochrom will be available starting late July 2012 at a price of $7,950.
