Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

The benefit of the Monochrome M246 compared to its colour cousin the M240 is improved ISO handling, with decreased noise when, and if, the shadows are lifted in post. The ULTRAsomething articles posted above explain and are worth reading.

B&W adds a level of abstraction and that's why I prefer it. Colour is too close to reality and reality can be fairly boring - right? Shooting in portarait adds a further element to the abstraction. We have binocular vision and see in landscape. Turning the camera through 90 provides us with an opportunity to see thimgs differently. A third abstraction is to see things as fragments, and not as totality such as everything in front of our eyes.
