Still Loving The Leica M Monochrome

One of my favorite cameras is the original Leica M Monochrome based on a CCD sensor.   It’s an 18 mega-pixel camera that only shoots black and white.  There are no color filters on the senor that can provide color output.  I’ve owned this camera since 2013, and still can appreciate the files it generates, and the fantastic German build quality.  It’s a bit weighty with Leica glass, but just feels solid in the hand and in use.  I did add a thumb grip to it, and find that addition has made wielding the camera that much more enjoyable.  I’ve printed my images as large as 40” x 60” with this sensor, and continue to sell images made with this camera, despite acquiring some other gear that has more bells and whistles.  I learned photography back when film was the rage, (and which now has made a solid come back), and I developed my own Kodak Tri-X in the basement.  The Leica M Monochrome brought me back to those days.  Using this camera is one of contemplation and a Zen like focus on capturing the moment.  It’s not auto focus, but that’s part of the allure, of getting you to slow down and plan out your composition.  I recently had to send the camera to Leica for replacing the CCD sensor.  Leica told me it could take up to 6 months, since they send all of the cameras to Germany for repair, but in the end they returned it in less than two months.  They provided me with a loaner, and went beyond the service level I was expecting.  They not only replace the sensor, they cleaned the camera, checked it out, and repaired a slight leather tear I had on the camera with out charging me.  To say the least, I was thoroughly impressed by their service and communication.  I still love this camera, and do not see a future where I will part with it.  Though, I would love to be able to acquire an M10 or M11 in the future to go along with my M Monochrome.

That little scene toward the end was extraordinary, lol! It’s the main sort of Leica that I have an enthusiasm for. I like that reason manufactured concentration to the Monochrom line of cameras and no conspicuous markings on the body too.
