Leica has announced the M11 Monochrom, a digital rangefinder that features a multi-resolution full-frame BSI sensor that only captures black and white images.
M11 Monochrom: A New B&W Rangefinder
The camera uses the body of the M11 and is made of all metal. Leica points specifically to the aluminum top plate, sapphire glass display, leatherette covering, and scratch-resistant black finish as contributing to what it calls “timeless appeal.”
The camera is fully monochrome like the photos it will take and doesn’t have the Leica logo but does have a dark chrome plating on the optical viewfinder that the company says accentuates its understated, iconic design.
