Leica M Monochrom Camera

Do you like love black and white photography? Like, really, a lot? Then feast your eyes on the Leica M Monochrom Camera ($8,000). Billed as "the world's first digital camera exclusively for full-frame, 35mm black-and-white photography," the Monochrom features an 18 megapixel CCD that records true luminance values — in other words, it doesn't "see" colors — as well as a rugged, rangefinder-style build, ISO up to 10,000, a 2.5-inch LCD, a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 sec, SD/SDHC storage, and compatibility with the full range of Leica M lenses. Time to stock up on black ink. [via]
