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.

A few recent photos made with the DMR:

Doug I agree with Charlie

soft lines and edges very similar with film .... but it's digital

Impressive pictures . Thanks

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

Henry
