Leica M Monochrom „Stealth Edition“ is a limited version of Leica M Monochrom (type 246), which was designed by Marcus Wainwright, the founder and general director of the fashion brand Rag & Bone. A characteristic element of this model is a black matt body and the marks which light up in the darkness.
As the very name of the camera suggests, only monochromatic photographs can be taken with the use of this camera, which is also the case with the standard version.
The camera is equipped with the 24MP CMOS sensor, without a low-pass filter, which has the dimensions of 23.9×35.8mm, as well as the Maestro image processor and 2GB buffer.
