The new Leica M Monochrom Type M 246 "Elliott"

By: Thorsten Overgaard, April 30, 2015. Latest edited on November 7, 2016.

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

As of April 30, 2015 the new CMOS-based Leica M Monochrom Typ246 is out and will be available for shipping from mid May 2015. “In small drips”, it has been stated diplomatically.

I will take my sweet time before I get into the sensor of the Leica M Monochrom M 246 "Elliott", which is the new thing for those used to the Leica M 240 and the Leica M Monochrom "Henri".

Most of what is written from Page 30 of this article (about the Leica M 240) is applicable to the Leica M Monochrom Type 246.

What is it?

The Leica M Monochrom Type 246 is far from a revolution. It is a predictable next step, launched at the predicted time. This is a camera thought out by accountants.

Don't hate me yet for pointing this out. I promise I will make you love this camera despite what I am about to say.

What I mean is that the Leica M product cycle is three years. Every three years, the model is updated to the next one.

Leica M Monochrom launched in Berlin in May 2012, and the Leica M Monochrom Type 246 launched in May 2015. Halfway in the three year product cycle, Leica Camera AG will introduce a slightly changed version such as the M9M version with silver body.

The Leica M 240 introduced in September 2012 (delivered from March 2013) as a replacement for the Leica M9 that was introduced in September 2009. Both models had a -P model introduced halfway in the product cycle (Professional model without logo on front).

"I've bought the new book - made a start reading it - it is really interesting.
I know it’s basic at the beginning but it isn't written in a patronizing way. I have been taking photographs for many years and have been lucky enough to be paid to take them for the last seven years; but it's always good to be taken back to the start"

On behalf of the financial department, I'm thrilled

The glory of the new Leica M Monochrom Type 246 - from an accountants viewpoint - is that it is basically a Leica M-P 240 with a different paint and leather, plus a different sensor and firmware. It's the ideal camera in terms of research & development costs, production planning and actual production.

From a user viewpoint the Leica M Monochrom Type 246 is a next step up in ISO and thus allows us to take photos in even darker places with even less noise. Not that many of us do, but it install confidence in our own judgment that we buy cameras that reviewers say are better than the previous model.

Leica Camera AG specifically asked reviewers to compare the Leica M Monochrom, the Leica M 240 and the Leica M 246, which is why we get to see 100% enlargements of rather unimportant parts of images.

Your next three cameras will have improved ISO

As predictable as the product cycles are, just as predictable is the progression of ISO.

The Leica M models goes 1.5 to 2.0 stops up model to model with a three-year cycle between them. The Leica M9 had a usable ISO of 800, the M240 had a usable ISO of (2500-) 3200 and the next model replacing the Leica M 240 will likely have a ISO of 6400 - 10,000 that is usable.

The Leica M Monochrom has a usable ISO of 6400 and the Leica M Monochrom 246 has a usable ISO of 12.500. That is one stop improvement.

 

 

ISO in the past and future

ISO is rather predictable, as can be seen in this 18-year stretch of Leica cameras. Bright green is the ISO range including PUSH, dark green is the actual usable ISO range (acceptable noise).

All digital cameras (from any brand) are marketed with a higher ISO than they can actually handle. A camera marketed to have 6400 ISO can usually handle 3200 ISO. A camera that is marketed to have 250.000 ISO can usually handle 125.000 ISO.

Leica in recent models have introduced the term (PUSH) which refers to the film days when we would PUSH for example a 100 ISO film two stops to 400 ISO in the development, usually by simply leaving the film in the developer tank longer.

The result in films was as it is in digital: When you PUSH, you get less accurate colors and more noise/grain. In the above, the bright green areas are the PUSH areas where the quality becomes questionable.

First revolution, then evolution

The Leica M Monochrom (M9M) was a revolution when introduced in May 2012.

It was also very Leica.

It introduced a new daring thinking that was going against the traditional digital camera industry standard of more color, more megapixels, more features and generally more of everything.

With the Leica M Monochrom you got less, and for that you paid more.

Genius!

Those of us who had hoped or feared an entirely new concept, such as a Leica M Monochrom without screen on the back, or perhaps a thinner body ... we didn't get any of that.

What the Leica M 246 is really about: Personal Evolution

I have talked enough about the camera.

Now let's talk about you.

What matters is if you feel the urge to grab this camera and go out and photograph. That is the real test on how well a camera will work; and of course if you will keep enjoying it so much that you will photograph every day.

Leica M Monochrom changed the way many photographers and Leica users saw them self and the world. The core user of the Leica M Monochrom is the person who uses this camera exclusively ... often they have sold off the color Leica M cameras.

Some use the Leica M Monochrom to relax and take that camera out when they feel like being in that special room of vintage simplicity.

The Leica M Monochrom represents a purity and simplicity that in many ways can be compared to film cameras. The Monochrom is a digital camera with the many advantages a digital workflow has in a world where computers are everywhere and labs that can develop film has become rare.

The Leica M Monochrom Type 246 is an improvement, no matter what we will have to endure of discussions about how great the CCD sensor in the old Monochrom was. For me who have used the Leica M 240 since it came out in March 2013, stepping into the Leica M Monochrom Type 246 is like continuing what I am doing, with more low light capabilities and a need to pay attention to blown out highlight.

For those who step from the Leica M Monochrom (M9M) to the Leica M Monochrom Type 246, it's a new feeling that take a little getting used to. For those who do so, or consider doing so, I recommend starting from the Page 40 of this article. Those pages describe all the horrors and delights getting a camera with Live View, video and much more.

Enjoy!

 

Leica Monochrom Masterclass

I will be writing more about the Leica M Monochrom Type 246, particularly about editing the images towards a special film look and monochrome look using Lightroom 6 (Lightroom CC). I will also be addressing how to get a monochrome look from the Leica M 240.

Definitions

ISO is a number value that measures a photographic film or sensors sensitivity to light. In the past the values were given in ISO (International Standards Organization), ASA (American Standards Association) and DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung).
The simplicity of the growing numbers are that the sensitivity doubles for each step: A 200 ISO sensor is twice as sensitive to light as a 100 ISO sensor. A 6400 ISO sensor is twice as sensitive to light as a 3200 ISO sensor.
