Next week, the week of December 5th, this website (123photogo) presents it’s annual “THE ART OF BLACK AND WHITE – VOLUME 7”. This presentation is a collection of some of the best black and white photos I have found recently on the internet. There is some great talent in black and white photography, so, it’s only fitting we highlight those photographers.
RICOH (PENTAX) CHALLENGES LEICA TO A BLACK AND WHITE CAMERA ONLY.
From Digital Camera world, comes this new information:
Ricoh could be set to challenge Leica with a monochrome-only K-3 Mark III, and another designed solely for astrophotography.
It might seem strange to release a black-and-white version of the Pentax K-III, which would on paper appear to challenge cameras like the Leica M-10 monochrome, but an astrophotography version also would be fun.
The news comes from a report by Digital Camera Info, keeping track of several different online events that were held recently by Ricoh Imaging in Japan. The report shows that the Japanese outlet Ten Riff had been tweeting updates mentioned in Ricoh’s Pentax Meeting Online 2021.
A MONOCHROME SENSOR?
It was supposedly announced in the online meeting that Ricoh is “considering a derivative model of the K-3 Mark III equipped with a monochrome sensor… K-3 Mark III Monochrome: uses a monochrome sensor without a color bayer filter… Achieves natural resolution and noise-like image quality without bayer complementation”.
LEICA M-10 MONOCHROM
The Leica M10 Monochrom opens the door to a new dimension of black-and-white photography. Equipped with a newly developed image sensor, the camera delivers an extremely high-quality rendition with breathtaking detail resolution.
The absence of a color filter array and exceedingly high sensor resolution of 40 megapixels result in an unprecedented depiction of even the finest details, along with an exceptionally natural-looking sharpness.
