Sony reportedly developing dedicated black and white full frame sensor camera

Sony is reportedly working on a dedicated black and white full frame sensor camera that will launch later this year.

According to sources close to the company, Sony is developing a dedicated black and white camera to compete with the likes of the Leica Monochrom, which costs around £6000.

The Sony Alpha Rumours sources suggest that Sony has been working hard on such a device and will bring it to market within the next year.

Sony’s currently creating a new black and white sensor to go in the camera that will supposedly offer superior sharpness, cleaner and higher ISO results and an increased dynamic range.

This will help produce amazing black and white photography results (a la Ansel Adams if you really have the talent).

There’s no specs or any other information on the rumoured B&W Sony camera as yet though.

Of course, we expect such a device would only appeal to a niche market, but we’d like to see what it is capable of if Sony ever launches a dedicated monochrome DSLR.
