Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 In the Field: Dynamic Range

Get Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 at B&H Photo.

When I return from my trip, I’ll be publishing my examples and impressions as part of my review of the Leica M Monochrom Typ 246, including the use of red and deep red filters, focusing, metering and so on.

Dynamic range of the Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 is a 12 bits (miserly here in 2015), a whopping three stops short of what I feel a monochrome camera ought to have. In the field, the MM246 simply cannot handle some scenes, so I let the shadows pin to black. Still, the ISO 320 results show very low noise and hold up beautifully to aggressive shadow boosts as seen in these two images.
