Leica makes great quality cameras and lenses with a luxury price tag attached to it. It is like photography mixed with luxury. There are no bad days for camera sales in Leica, in many cases, you still need to queue for what you have ordered for their new products. Lately, Leica has designed and launched a monochrome camera to narrow down its niche to target the black & white image shooter – The Leica M10 Monochrom. Let’s have a quick glance of its specs:-

  • 40MP Full-Frame B&W CMOS Sensor
  • Leica Maestro II Image Processor
  • No Color Array or Low Pass Filter
  • Optical 0.73x Magnification Viewfinder

Sensor & Processor
With a newly developed 40-megapixel black-and-white sensor, pairs with the Maestro II image processor to deliver a wide dynamic range and ultra-high resolution black-and-white images with natural sharpness. At the same time, the new M10 Monochrom is the first black-and-white camera of the rangefinder system to offer an exceptionally broad sensitivity range of ISO 160 to ISO 100000. Images captured at all ISO settings impress with a finely grained rendition of details and no disturbing artefacts.
