Leica Camera AG continues to break barriers with the release of the Leica M11 Monochrom, the fourth generation of their black-and-white sensor cameras.
Boasting a sensor exclusively designed for monochrome photography, this camera rekindles the essence of capturing images through the interplay of shadow and light.
The Leica M Monochrom, the world’s first camera with a sensor dedicated to black and white photography, was introduced in 2012. Critics initially questioned Leica’s decision to venture down this unique path. However, the Monochrom line has proven its merit over time, becoming a vital part of Leica‘s rangefinder camera experience for nearly 70 years.
The Leica M11 Monochrom‘s full-frame, multi-resolution monochrome sensor is exclusively developed for the new M-generation of cameras. Offering Raw files in DNG format or JPEGs with a resolution of 60, 36, or 18 million pixels, the M11 Monochrom captures images with stunning detail and clarity. The camera’s impressive sensitivity range, from 125 to 200,000 ISO, allows photographers to explore their creativity in a variety of lighting conditions, while maintaining minimal noise even at high sensitivity levels.
The 256 GB internal memory ensures ample storage for the photographer on the move. The Leica M11 Monochrom’s Bluetooth connectivity and USB-C port allow for seamless image transfer to the Leica FOTOS app, which offers advanced processing options. The app also enables direct control of the camera and instant image review on a connected smartphone or tablet. As a “Made for iPhone and iPad” certified accessory by Apple, the Leica M11 Monochrom offers unique possibilities with the included Leica FOTOS cable.

In keeping with the M series’ classic style, the M11 Monochrom features a fully metal body, high-quality aluminum top plate, sapphire glass screen, durable leather cladding, and scratch-resistant black paint finish. The deliberate omission of the Leica logo and dark chrome coating of the optical viewfinder emphasize the camera’s minimalist, iconic design.
The Leica M11 Monochrom proudly upholds the company’s reputation for high-end, quality manufacturing. Priced at €9,450, it is available on leica-camera.com and through authorized retailers. With the M11 Monochrom, Leica continues to demonstrate its dedication to innovation and pushing the boundaries of photographic artistry.
