Leica M Monochrom

Leica M Monochrom Digital Camera 10760 B&H Photo Video

I was just doing a random search for mirror less cameras and came up with this Leica. Black and white only digital camera? Cool idea, fits in with the rangefinder mentality nicely.

BTW, along with a Canon 1DMk2, I want a Leica. Paintball is so much cheaper than photography!

Man, if I had the money I'd love to own an M9 and if I won the lottery........I'd love to own a monochrom.......I'll have to resort to shooting mono in my OMD and daydream......

I'm not an expert in filtering, but somehow the monocromatic nature of the sensor eliminates the need for an anti-aliasing filter/bayer filter. The result is a much sharper image.

So it's not just a gimmick, it's a legitimately different technology which--paired with Leica's superior lenses--should produce images of unparalleled quality.

Do want. Will not have, unless a lottery is won.

Leica's are interesting. You rarely see them used by professional photographers, and they are usually out of reach for the recreational photographer. Amazing cameras though, maybe one day I'll own one if I keep my fingers crossed.

The mono from the OMD rocks. Be happy with it
