Leica M Monochrome

Εδώ και μερικές μέρες η Leica ανακοίνωσε μία νέα ψηφιακή rangefinder μηχανή η οποία ακούει στο όνομα M Monochrome. Η νέα Leica πατάει στην Μ9 και τις προδιαγραφές της (αισθητήρας κλπ) με μία βασική διαφορά. Δεν έχει φίλτρα RGB στον αισθητήρα με αποτέλεσμα να καταγράφει μόνο ασπρόμαυρα! Η έλειψη αυτών των φίλτρων επιπλέον δίνει τη δυνατότητα στις φωτογραφίες να είναι πιο sharp ενώ παράλληλα επιτρέπει στον full frame αισθητήρα να λειτουργεί με αυξημένη ευαισθησία ISO μέχρι 10.000 (αντί του 2500 της Μ9).
