Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) “Leitz Wetzlar”

Celebrate 150 years of history with the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) “Leitz Wetzlar” Edition

To commemorate the heritage of Leica, this special edition Leica M Monochrom camera features the iconic “Leitz” script engraved on the top plate. This edition is limited to 150 cameras worldwide and will be sold through Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers beginning today. It is priced at $7,595.00.

Photographers who consciously employ the unique aesthetics of black-and-white photography to express their creativity can rely on the Leica M Monochrom as a modern tool. As the successor to the world’s first digital black-and-white camera, it offers the latest technologies to support creative visualisation in its archetypal form. For pictures of unequaled quality. For pictures with previously unimaginable sharpness, depth, and clarity. A pioneer in every respect. A true Leica.

Leica M Monochrom – the sharpest way to see things in black and white: thanks to a high-resolution 24-megapixel sensor that captures images in 35 mm full-frame format – with three times the speed of its predecessor. As the sensor records only luminance values, this leads to 100% sharper pictures with exceptional depth, clarity and resolution of details that by far exceed those of color exposures – even when shooting with the highest ISO sensitivity settings. Pictures that already satisfy professional demands in JPEG format.
