Leica M9 Monochrom - Say Hello to Henri

Leica M9 Monochrom - Say Hello to Henri | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it

"On May 10, 2012, in Berlin, Germany Leica announced the M Monochrom. I was there for the launch event, along with hundreds of invited journalists and guests from around the world. I had a bit of a head start though because I'd received a pre-production camera for testing about 10 days before. Though that time had been filled with teaching a two day printing seminar followed by a two day wildlife field workshop (and obviously I couldn't let anyone see the new camera), I did manage to spend enough time shooting with Henri to garner some initial impressions.

Leica M-Monochrom Announced! DPreview Hands-on Preview

Leica M-Monochrom  Announced!  DPreview Hands-on Preview | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it

"Leica has announced the M-Monochrom, a black-and-white version of its M9 full-frame rangefinder. The M-Monochrom has no color filter array in front of the sensor, meaning it captures more of the available light but cannot perceive color. It also means there is no need for demosaicing (the process of combining color information from adjacent pixels), so higher levels of detail are retained. In most other respects, the M-Monochrom shares its hardware with the M9. It can add three toning colors to its monchrome output or its uncompressed DNG files can be edited using the included copy of Photoshop Lightroom. A full version of the mono processing software Silver Efex 2 is also included."
