M Monochrom (Typ 246), black chrome finish

Black and white photography is photography in its purest form. In the medium's over 100-year history, there have always been photographers who consciously use the special aesthetics of black and white photography as a means of expressing their creative work.

To give them a contemporary instrument, Leica developed the first black and white digital camera. The Leica M Monochrome (Type 246) continues the completely unique concept. With meaningful innovations, it even surpasses the high standards set by its predecessor. Without losing sight of their core competence: black-and-white photography with unprecedented sharpness and state-of-the-art technology.
