Leica M Monochrom Body *NEW SENSOR
The gently used Leica M Monochrom uses an 18-megapixel sensor. ISO range is a bit different, though, ranging from 320 to 10,000, with a "low" or "pull" setting of ISO 160. Images are saved in JPEG or DNG format to an SD/SDHC card. The Leica M Monochrom also has a 2.5-inch LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels.
This Leica M Monochrom comes with it's original box and paperwork. It has also had the critical sensor replacement and original receipt for work done by Leica North America. The receipt will be included in the box.
It has been tested by our staff and we have determined it to perform as normal. Save for a few light scuffs on the body, the camera is in great user condition. Sensor is clean and the camera's images are sharp.
Comes as shown in photos with original box, two Leica batteries, original charger and camera body.
Description from the web:
Leica returns to its roots with the new M Monochrom, a full-frame digital camera whose sole purpose is producing beautiful, clean monochrome images without the impediments of color.
Most digital cameras are monochrome, creating color through the use of red, green, and blue color filters spread out over the sensor. The Leica M Monochrom removes those filters, and captures only light and dark values at each pixel. Since black and white photography is essentially the capture of light values regardless of color, the Leica M Monochrom is better equipped to capture accurate light intensity values at each pixel, unencumbered by red, green or blue filters or the demosaicing interpretation necessary to make a complete color image. If your goal is better black and white photography with a digital camera, the sensor in the Leica M Monochrom is what you've been waiting for.
