Black and white photography is, in some respects, a lost art form. The move away from film to digital and the requisite fixed colour sensor has meant that true black and white photographs are a thing of the past. Well perhaps they were till now.
Leica’s new M Monochrom is the first digital camera to feature a full, black and white only sensor allowing it to capture remarkably crisp images and offer phenomenal low light performance.
It’ll be interesting to see more images from the camera as it ships to more new owners, in the meantime you can read the official DP Review here or check it out via Leica here.
