Leica M10 Monochrom Launches Promising Next-Level B&W Photography

Cameras sporting the iconic red Leica logo are rugged, expensive and much sought after. Well, nobody said that being an ultra-specialized Leica photographer would be affordable.

The German company calls this "the best black and white sensor Leica has done", which bodes well because we were already impressed with the details and sharpness produced by Leica's latest colorless camera, the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246).

Leica says that the camera benefits from the quietest shutter release of any M-system camera so far, which should help when capturing retro-stylish stills at function gigs like weddings. The newly developed 40-megapixel true black-and-white sensor, new Wi-Fi capabilities and expanded ISO range make room for added creativity with light and contrast, bringing photographers back to the basics with the most up-to-date technology.

Aside for the omission of colour, there's support for a wide range of light, supporting ISO 160 to ISO 100,000, a first for Leica's black and white sensors and created to work with lenses in the Leica M range. They also produce stunning images, rich in color and detail. In addition, the novelty supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.


The Leica M10-R in the images (see below) may be a prototype model, with some guessing that the "R" in the name simply stands for "Resolution".

Though the look and quality build might give onlookers a clue to the manufacturer, the only confirmation is an engraved logotype on the top plate that declares this camera to be the Leica M10 Monochrom.

NOTE: Leica uses the word spelling "MONOCHROM" for branding, for the title of this camera line. To match the sigil of that silent shutter, there is also no Leica logo on the camera, just in case that bright red dot ruins your chance to capture the flawless street photo. Going camera manually and can boast a high level of protection that ensures long term usage. The new Leica M10 Monochrom promises to be a long-term companion that delivers an unparalleled experience and impeccable image quality, as timeless as the classical black-and-white photos it creates. We may be underestimating the value of your auto in our owner, but it is available to buy today for $ 8,300 / £ 7,250 (approximately AU $ 13,729), which makes it more expensive than Canon's new flagship DSLR, the 1DX Mark III and about the same price as 36 Sonos One speakers.
