They've pulled out all the stops with that one. I shall have to stick to Tri-X in my M4, though.

Allen thanks for the link - afraid to watch it and what comes next. The M246 is so good. An M10 version would make the Monochrom even better but I'm not sure it warrants me replacing. What's your take as a Monochrom owner?

I will be getting one at some point in the future. Probably late this year or early next year. The newly deigned sensor will be a big reason. Not so much for the resolution 40MPs but the fact is was designed to be a B&W sensor only. Not a sensor already made with the color array removed like the previous two were. Also good files at 25,000 ISO and usable at 50,000. My original MM tops out at 6400. It goes to 10,000 but it is really not that usable. I know that my M 10 is really good to about 12,500 but not much above that. This M 10 Mono is two stops better. And then there is the really quite shutter.

Waiting for my own Monochrom stuff to come back from the lab ... three rolls of Tri-X and one HP5 all pushed to 1600. It was fun shooting black and white film, and I can definitely see the appeal of the Monochrom. You really have to use your imagination to try and think in Black and White, or in tones, knowing that when you press the shutter any colour is gone forever. I found I ended up making pictures of certain things I wouldn't have bothered with had I been using colour film, and very rarely the reverse since I was mostly using the black and white film in Britain during the winter where there is far less colour than I'm used to now I live in Spain, and the weather is cloudier, more overcast and generally more suited to black and white anyway (hence buying the film).

These, however, are from a colour roll from early November - a lottery advert and a beer delivery truck. These two pictures would probably been fine on Black and White film but I find myself wanting to use Colour in Spain because generally speaking, there is a lot of nice colour and nice golden light to work with.

Some pictures from the M4 Monochrom ... also known as Tri-X.

The second one actually came about because of the M4. Traffic came to a complete standstill on the M6 (motorway ... if you've driven it, you'll probably have been stuck in a traffic jam there) and when we heard the truck next to us switch off the engine we knew we weren't going anywhere fast and my Dad went to get some stuff from the boot; and I went to document the scene as was my responsibility. Turns out the trucker is also into Photography and asks whether I'm using a 35mm lens. A conversation then strikes up and I swap between chatting and documenting.

Some decent gear and not enough time to use it all.
