have you been spending too much time on Photoshop turning your color photos into black & white images? if that’s the case, then it’s high time for you to grab a dedicated black & white camera like the Leica M Monochrom. though its not going to be cheap ($7,950, to be exact) but what you will get is a specialty camera with a 18.0-megapixel sensor without color filters, which results in two things: ‘true’ black-and-white images that are sharper as compared to camera with color-sensitive sensor and a much sensitive sensor with an ISO up to 10,000 for improved low light photography. aesthetically, the M Monochrom sports a classic Rangefinder design with a magnesium alloy construction in matte-black finish, soft leather trim and a carrying strap in premium full-grain cowhide. other features include a 2.5-inch 230k-dot color LCD, a rangefinder-style optical viewfinder, SD/SDHC card slot, USB 2.0 socket, self-timer (2s and 12s) and a 14-bit uncompressed RAW mode. as you would (would have not) expected, it does not have autofocus, zoom, live view, and no video recording. so your dream of a dedicated black-and-white HD videography is not with this camera. the Leica M Monochrom is up for pre-order from Adorama with shipment from August 2012. a few more look after the break.
