Grey is a beautiful colour – Leica Monochrom 246 Review | Mirrorlessons

At the dawn of photography and motion pictures, monochrome was the only option for those who wanted to make images. When colour photography arrived on the scene, it was more expensive than B&W and therefore less accessible to the general public. However, as colour photography began to permeate the market and come down in price, monochrome imagery gradually became more of an artistic choice. Today, we live in an era where digital imaging is at everyone’s fingertips. Even the simplest cameras deliver a wide array of options – colour, monotone, filters, effects, and more. What’s more, you have the freedom to adjust everything after the shoot. This is why, in an increasingly competitive market where top performance and advanced features count, the Leica M Monochrom may appear out of place. A digital camera that can only shoot black and white may seem more like a step back than a step forward, especially if you consider that all it takes is the click of a button in Photoshop to convert a colour image into monochrome. But the fact that the Typ 246 is the second edition in the Monochrom series shows that there is a niche of people who think it is a good idea………
