If you are the kind who cringes at the idea of clicking a digital photograph in colour and then simply switching it to a black-and-white, this one is for you (if you have deep pockets, of course). Leica has come up with the world’s first digital camera with a dedicated, full-frame, black-and-white sensor for true monochrome photography. The removal of the need for colour processing means the Monochrom’s 18-meg sensor summons up incredibly sharp images—100 percent sharper than with colour sensors is what it claims. You also get top B&W image-processing software Silver Efex Pro free, plus Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.
