also released at the berlin press event, the black-and-white-only ‘m monochrom’ camera eliminates the colour filters of the company’s ‘m9’ model, getting more light to each pixel, and concomitantly making the sensor more sensitive. indeed the device features ISO settings up to 10,000. in colour sensors, the results of various pixel data is demosaiced to create the image. the result of a black-and-white-only sensor is that the photographs produced are sharper. the ‘monochrom’ is also reported to create much less and finer noise even at high ISO levels.
