German camera company Leica has announced its second generation black and white camera, the M Monochrom Type 246. The 24-megapixel camera will contain a full-frame sensor and comes with Leica’s signature Leica Maestro image processor, and has 0.68x optical viewfinder magnification.

The M Monochrom Type 246 triples the shooting speed of the previous model due to its added 2GB of RAM. The camera also has a 921k pixel anti-reflective 3.0″ LCD. And unlike the previous iteration, you’re now able to record full 1080p video with the Type 246. The camera also sports a classic look, having a black build with black chrome base plates that also make it more durable than Leica’s previous camera. Leica plans to release numerous color filters specifically for the Type 246 throughout the summer. The purchase will also include a copy of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom via digital download. Of course, if you want to pick up this gem from Leica, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny, as it is currently available for pre-order for $7,450. [Purchase]
