Leica Type 246 Monochrom

The Leica Monochrom is a unique camera made by German camera makers for black and white lovers. The sensor registers the light without the normal Bayer matrix (for colours) so you pay the missing colours having two important perks: the full resolution not interpolated by the Bayer matrix and the full shades of grey from pure white to pure black.
So we are talking about a clean “light recorder” with a numeric sensor sensitivity for any different colour recorded.
We started from there, the spectral sensitivity of the sensor (on the left), and not in the usual way from a target with a limited number of patches (color checker 24, SG, etc). From the spectral sensitivity, we mapped a virtual target with more than 15k patches (on the right), to be able to build a complex and precise emulation of the original sensor characteristic.
This set is made using the spectral sensitivity of the first CMOS monochrome made by Leica, the M Type 246.
The quality of this emulation is unparalleled and if you’re looking for the first Leica black and white signature, here it is!

The profile set is made with different illuminant options:

D93
D65
D50
F2
F7
F11
StdA

every illuminant has also all colour filtered output included and a linear alternative:

No filter

So we offer 49 different choices for your wonderful photo.
