DMR computer interface

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Has anyone ever gotten their DMR to interface w/ their PC?  The DMR Owners Manual says that it can, "w/Firewire cable..."  I've tried w/Firewire-to-USB adapter (since I don't have a Firewire socket; but I've never gotten it to work.

 

Any suggestions?  My PC Operating Sys. are: Windows 7, Windows 10, I even have an old XP machine somewhere.  None seem to work w/ my DMR.  DMR operates fine on its own, however.

You need a copy of the Imacon/Hasselblad Flexcolor 4.7 (last version 4.7, I think) to tether your DMR to a computer

I suppose that should've added that I have Flexcolor 4.7 installed on my PC, per the Owners Manual instructions, for this very purpose...to no avail.  I'm really curious if anyone EVER got their DMR to interface w/ a PC?  If 'Yes', what is/was their setup?

USB -> Firewire won't work...

 

You need Firewire, or: Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter

I came that conclusion too. So, I went to an Apple computer store, where they had an old Firewire-to-Thunderbolt adapter, & we tried it on an Apple computer, there in the store. Granted, the Apple computer didn’t have FlexColor 4.7 installed. Still, we couldn’t get the Apple computer to recognize the DMR.  It seems that Leica conceived of every possible way to *prevent* one from interfacing with the DMR via computer–brilliant–it takes a lot of ingenuity to achieve that feat! Likely one of the reasons why the DMR had such a short market life.

I did get this to work with a firewire cable to my Mac Pro (cheese grater)

Interesting.  You're the 1st person whom I've heard of, who actually got theirs to work...  I threw away my mother-in-law's old Mac cheese grater two months ago...didn't think to try it on that, beforehand. :-(

 

I wonder if anyone has ever gotten their DMR to work w/ an IBM clone PC (Microsoft OS)?

      I have a new M10-P and have installed latest firmware, 12/2018, with fast Lexar 128GB 1000x memory card.  The other night I went out to photo sunset, but the MENU button would not work, managed some pix, removed battery, switched on and off a few times, finally all OK.  I have NEVER had an unreliable Leica (or Nikon), and for $8000.  Tonight I went to make a picture and the LIVE button wouldn't work, nor the MENU button, and the display of ISO was weak and dim (fresh battery).  In  a few minutes all working OK.  Has anyone else had similar troubles with M10 or M10-P? My Leica Q and digital M never gave me a bit of trouble.

      "New Editing and Sharing Capabilities with Leica FOTOS
      Leica Camera introduces Leica FOTOS, a brand new mobile app which offers Leica photographers the tools to stay connected easily through a single app. Compatible with almost any Wi-Fi enabled Leica camera, the new app allows photographers to capture unforgettable moments remotely, transfer, edit and share images quickly, easily and on-the-go.
      The Leica FOTOS app makes it easy to connect a smartphone to a Leica camera with the easy instructions provided at the start. All current Wi-Fi enabled Leica Cameras can be connected to the Leica FOTOS App. The app will automatically save all Leica camera credentials to instantly connect the next time it is used with the phone.
      Leica FOTOS enables photographers to access the Live View function of the camera and remotely change exposure-relevant settings such as the aperture, the ISO value, the shutter speed and exposure compensation from a smartphone. It naturally also allows wireless control of the shutter release, which opens up entirely new creative opportunities. Leica FOTOS can be used for this in combination with many popular software tools, ranging from Adobe® Lightroom®Mobile® to VSCO®.
      The Leica FOTOS app currently supports Leica S (Typ 007), Leica SL, Leica M10, Leica M10-P, Leica Q, Leica TL2, Leica TL, Leica T, Leica CL, Leica D-Lux and Leica V-Lux cameras.
      Beginning today, Leica customers can register for a free beta-version of the Leica FOTOS app for iOS and Android devices at fotosapp.leica-camera.com. The app will continue to be available free of charge after completion of the beta-evaluation phase.

      I thought that starting this Topic would help all of us share our findings when the software is released.
      This is thrilling for those of us shooting RAW only and trying to get them into Lightroom Mobile!
      Stay tuned...
       
       
      PS: how do I edit the topic title to correct spelling?

      Hello,
       
      yesterday I tried to open DNG's with DxO Optics Pro directly and it says "file format not supported". I found in the internet, that it works with Adobe DNG. So I importet my photos into Lightroom CC as "copy as DNG". I have the plug-in for DxO Optics Pro in Lightroom but when I tried to open the images, I again got the error message.
      Am I missing something here ?
       
      Thank you very much for your replies.
       
      Greetings,

      Hi, leider hat mich die Sufu nicht weiter gebracht. Ich habe auf meinem System (Win 8, CC aktuell, Nik aktuell) folgende Problematik:
       
      Wenn ich nach der Bearbeitung im RAW Konvertrer eine Monochromdatei, in Photoshop, in einem NIK Plugin öffnen möchte, egal ob DNG, Tiff oder Jpeg,
       
      bekomme ich z.Bsp. die Fehlermeldung: Der Befehl Silver Efex Pro2 ist momentan nicht verfügbar
       
      Auch die Neuinstallation der Nik Plugins änderte nichts.
       
      In LR CC, mit dem ich ungern arbeite, gibt es keine Probleme, jedes Plugin läst sich in d.o.g. Dateiformaten öffnen.
       
      Auch M9 Dateien lassen sich in Photoshop CC mit Silver Efex Pro 2 problemlos öffnen.
       
      Habt Ihr eine Idee woran es liegen könnte?
       
      DAnke und Gruß Klaus

      Hat noch jemand die Challenge auf Sky Arts gesehen und kann mir sagen mit welcher Software die Kandidaten die Leica-Bilder gesichtet und bearbeitet haben?
