The Leica M Monochrom features the following:
THE KEY FEATURES IN DETAIL
Newly developed monochrome CCD sensor with a native resolution of 18 Million Pixel.
With its full, native resolution of 18 megapixels, the Leica M Monochrom delivers 100 % sharper
images than with color sensors. The fact that its sensor does not "see" color means real
brightness values are available for each individual pixel. That is to say, the sensor of the M
Monochrom produces a "genuine" black-and-white image directly. In combination with the
brilliant imaging performance of Leica lenses and the perfect matching of the sensor to the M
system, this creates pictures of outstanding sharpness and natural brilliance, with no need to
sharpen the image in post-processing. The result is incomparable picture quality, such as would
normally only be expected of a medium-format camera. The impressively low noise level of the
monochrome CCD sensor delivers an extremely fine-grained image, which is not perceived as
disturbing even at the highest ISO settings.
Raw data histogram and parameter clipping warning
The Leica M Monochrom impresses discerning users and fine-art photographers with a raw
data histogram for exact control of tonal values. In contrast to standard histograms, it depicts
the actual raw data, unprocessed and uncorrupted. Especially in combination with the
parameter clipping view, this enables exposures to be optimized with great precision in order to
fully exploit the available dynamic range.
Whether sepia, cool or selenium – with the M Monochrom images can be adjusted to the
characteristic tones of analog black-and-white photography at the press of a button.
The classic, iconic Leica M camera design is embodied in the Leica M Monochrom. The mat
black chrome-finish top cover imbues the camera with the look of a discrete, unassuming
Only an engraving on the black accessory shoe reveals the product's name.
The camera features an extremely soft, tactile leatherette body covering which is perfectly in
keeping with the discrete overall look.
The camera comes with a real-leather carrying strap made of high-grade cowhide.
Additionally there is a new handgrip available, featured with the same black chrome finish and
the same leather trim as the camera.
Silver Efex Pro included
A full version of the world's leading black-and-white image processing software, Silver Efex Pro
2, is supplied. Silver Efex Pro 2 incorporates a unique and powerful set of darkroom-inspired
tools to produce top-quality black-and-white pictures. Silver Efex Pro 2 emulates over 20
different black and white film types to recreate the classic monochrome look of film. The
emulation is based on detailed analysis of multiple rolls of each film type. This results in
accurate reproductions of popular film from ISO 32 to ISO 3200.
Leica Monochrom prints
For passionate black-and-white photographers looking to retain the accustomed brilliance and
quality of their images in print, Leica offers a unique service. In cooperation with the photo
processing lab Whitewall, the Leica Monochrom Print Service enables M Monochrom
customers to obtain superb black-and-white prints of their work. This involves developing the
digital images from the Leica M Monochrom on genuine fiber barite photographic paper.
Thanks to use of the classic wet-chemistry silver process, the developed prints are
indistinguishable from hand-made prints of analog images. Customers looking to utilize this
exclusive service can order prints directly from Whitewall after registering their M Monochrom.
This service is initially only available to Leica M Monochrom customers
