Do you appreciate the timeless beauty of black-and-white photography? Maybe you’re a dedicated user of the Leica Monochrom, with its unmatched monochromatic signature. If so, we have a product that is sure to pique your interest.

Our team has created a precise scientific emulation of the signature Leica Monochrom M Typ 246 (CMOS version, the second). The accuracy of the reproduction is so impeccable that you can compare pictures taken with your original Monochrom M Typ 246 camera right alongside those taken with our profiles. And here’s the best part: you can achieve this signature output with any of our supported cameras, even big megapixel models from modern Japanese manufacturers. With our emulations, you no longer need multiple cameras for different types of photography. If you’re devoted to the original Leica Monochrom signature, our profiles will perfectly emulate the rich, striking output. And even better, our Linear profile is a feature not even available on the original Monochrom. It allows you to achieve stunning results with colour filters, such as Red, Yellow, Green, Orange and Blue. Experience the true beauty of black-and-white photography with the added convenience and flexibility of our unparalleled emulations.

With confidence, we know that certain specs of the full-resolution original Monochrome M246 sensor prove impossible to replicate, notably, its fine resolution, which is not an issue with modern big-megapixel cameras. However, the superior ISO performance is also something we cannot completely replicate. Thankfully, you can still achieve the perfect Monochrom M output by utilizing a colour camera and selectively choosing when developing images in post-production. This way, you can still capture the essence of the Monochrom M’s image quality while maintaining creative flexibility.

HERE  you can find a small tutorial showing how powerful this profile set is.

The Leica M Typ 246 Monochrom, crafted by esteemed German camera manufacturers, caters to monochrome enthusiasts. It stands out with a unique sensor that captures light minus the Bayer matrix layer for colour interpolation. In other words, the camera provides the privilege of a full yet unprocessed resolution and offers an unparalleled range of shades starting from pure white to pitch black. With the absence of the Bayer layer, the camera’s ISO performance is truly impressive.

Beginning from the spectral sensitivity of the sensor (left), instead of relying on a limited number of colour patches (such as the colour checker 24 and SG), we curated a virtual target with over 15k patches (right). This allowed us to create a meticulously precise emulation of the original sensor characteristic. The end result is unparalleled in quality and delivers the unmistakable Leica M Typ 246 black and white signature. Trust us, you won’t find a more accurate representation of your vision.

Our philosophy revolves around producing expertly crafted colour profiles rather than mere presets. You can expect our profiles to be meticulous and precise in their calibration, regardless of emulation. Our meticulous attention to detail ensures that every profile we produce is unrivalled in terms of accuracy and quality.

The profile set is made with different illuminant options:


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

No filter
Blue filter
Green filter
Orange filter
Red filter
Yellow filter

So we offer 49 different choices for your wonderful photos.
