Leicas Full frame Black and White Sensor

Leica has never been a company that caters to the masses, and as if to prove the point their latest offering is a full-frame camera that only shoots black and white.

There’s no colour filter in front of the sensor, which allows more light to hit it. As a result, it promises a greater dynamic range and better noise performance. The ISO range goes from 160 to 1000, but the camera promises to pull more details out of scenes, especially if they have a lot of contrast.

The M-Monochrom will first be available at the new Leica store in Washington DC starting in July. It will cost just a shade under $8,000, which is about $1,000 more than the standard M9.
