Today is the 10th year birthday of the Leica DMR so I took my unit out and fondled it a bit.

 

What has your DMR been up to on it's birthday?

Here's one of my two DMRs on its 10th Birthday with its Baby Brother, the S006.

 

R9/DMR 100/4 & S(006) 120/2.5CS

Excellent images all these, however I have not seen the DMR (back element!): I have seen only the Leica cameras.

Charlie , stunning flower pictures .I like this "soft" side of the flower

DMR has the CCD image that reconciles me to digital and much like the film !
CCD images are better than CMOS pictures ("vivid" as said Ewin Puts in CCD versus "neutral"  Cmos)
The DMR images have not "net" lines and edges that I call "cut with a scalpel" (less I say) than digital images

compared to the film.
Furthermore, Kodak's CCD sensors manufacturer and the colors are much inspired by Kodak Portra IMHO

Best

Mine has been resting for quite some time, even though I replaced the motherboard on the DMR and the meter in the R8.  Great combination, but I just don't use it any more.

I decided to send my batteries to refurbishment in Germany. That's the greatest trouble these days, the batteries. 

You're right to continue to keep DMR ...

I know you're the "spearhead" of digital Leica cameras but as I mentioned above  I find that the film colors are more beautiful (rendering general included).The DMR and R9 or R8 is very close. Sorry for my franknessI returned now to film with my MP and M7 and soon with the M-A.

Best regards Thorsten

Fernando, thank you.

 

I'm lucky as I managed to hoard 8 batteries (inc 2 NOS) for my two DMRs. I saw the writing on the wall, when it got discontinued and bought the remaining UK stock. I have had 3 batteries rebuilt so far by Michael Bass and one of the LUF users Marac in London. All of the rebuilds work really well with higher capacity cells. OK, the cosmetics aren't the same after the battery packs have been reopened and re-sealed, but who cares as long as they work.

Unfortunately the R8/DMR has put on a lot of weight recently so after next tuesday its use will be limited to no more than 25' from the truck 

and a Sony a7II will become the hiking / grab-n-go camera.

Doug,

 

I know that the DMR is now 10 years old, but that hardly qualifies for middle age spread

In people years it's at least 70 tears old

Doug, Olympus's remark (March 2009) on the number of pixels is still valid in 2015 .

"12 MPx is enough for most folks"

http://www.cnet.com/news/olympus-12-megapixels-is-enough-for-most-folks/

The Leica M8 (10MP) always done beautiful pictures especially in b&w  !

Another proof , the output of the A7S (12.2 Mpx) 


You said pixels race ?

Best

      Hello there!
      I have a slight but not to severe problem. I've noticed that my Leica M7 is not able to read the DX code of these two specific films: Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400 and Fujifilm Fujicolor C200. For these two films I get the ISO value of 5000 and 3200 which are obviously wrong. For example, Fujifilm Pro 400H is working perfectly fine, the ISO detection works without problems. Further I tried several other films like Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Portra 160 and 400, Ilford FP4+ 125 and so on... and the dx detection worked perfectly fine on every single one of these films. I compared the working ones with the "malfunctioning" films and the only difference I noticed is that the black paint in the dx code is a kind of green, it's not a perfect black, more like a darkish green, definitely not a true black. Could this maybe be the reason?
      The thing is, I've sent my camera to Leitz for a grand- overhaul just 3 weeks back. They changed and renewed a lot of parts including thr DX- reader so the camera is like brand new. Unluckily I've no clue if it had the same problem before it went to Leitz because I've not shot one of these films before.
      It would be a great help if somebody has an answer or maybe a similar problem!

      Regards
      Alex

      Hi,
      I have  Hasselblad V series lenses and also a M240. I was thinking of buying 'Kipon Baveyes Ultra 0.7x Adapter for Hasselblad Medium Format Lens to Leica M Mount' so that I can use these lenses. 
      Has anyone used this adapter, and what was the experiance?
