M Monochrom (Type 246) Black Chrome



The Next Level

Photographers who consciously employ the unique aesthetics of black-and-white photography to express their creativity can rely on the Leica M Monochrom as a modern tool. As the successor to the world’s first digital black-and-white camera, it offers the latest technologies to support creative visualisation in its archetypal form. For pictures of unequalled quality. For pictures with previously unimaginable sharpness, depth and clarity. A pioneer in every respect. A true Leica. 

  • Black-and-white photography with unrivalled speed: Leica Maestro Processor with 2GB Buffer Memory
  • The sharpest way to see things in black and white: As the sensor records only luminance values, this leads to 100% sharper pictures with an exceptional depth, clarity and resolution of details that by far exceed those of colour exposures, even at sensitivities up to ISO 25000
  • Like many of its legendary M ancestors, the Leica M Monchrom has a frame selector lever to aid the photographer in the choice of the optimum focal length for a subject or scene.
  • Creative Contrasts: Use color filters for creating unusual moods in landscapes, portraits and other genres of photography
  • Live View mode: Live View Zoom provides tenfold magnification and Focus Peaking helps capture pictures with exceptional sharpness 
  • Moving Pictures in M Quality: Video recording in 1080p full-HD format
