    Doug and Jaapv, please, for the love of god, stop posting.

    Really guys, dont do this anymore - because of you two, I'm checking DMR prices and R lens prices :P

    I got enough bad karma already on my credit card due to Leica M lenses...

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Just to show you that a DMR is not just for daylight. I use mine all the time for concerts. So here are a few - Roberto Fonseca, Macy Gray and Julian Siegel

    All shot at ISO400 - nos 1&3 with 50 cron, no 2 with 180 cron

    Best wishes,

    Ashwin,

    Thank you for your kind comments. I just wanted to show that the DMR can be used in low light too. It just has the most fabulous viewfinder and the IQ is very good, even by todays standards.

    I haven't used the DMR in a while. I dusted it off for the first soccer game of my son's team. He is not in the photo, just some of his team mates.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    I just loaded Capture One version 7 yesterday and processed a 35-70mm image through it. This was shot a few years back with the 35-70mm at f4 and on the DMR. The second image is a crop of the first image at 100% or actual pixel view. The image quality seems to have increased a lot, both in sharpness, but smoothness of tone and colour quality.





    I found a crop processed in the past to compare.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    I went back to an old 800iso image to see if C1v7 would improve on old higher ISO files.



    Capture one.




    This was done a few years back with Hasselblads Phocus, the program that replaced Flexcolor.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Not up to Doug's standards, but here is a 400mm f6.8 shot from years ago. I brought the camera on vacation to a resort down south and the 400mm f6.8 was small enough to pack in the luggage. When I looked at the full size image, the bird's bill and loose tufts of feathers are incredibly sharp for such a simple lens. It also holds the highlights well, though that may be a function of the DMR.

    Since I just sold the DMR, I have this lens up on Ebay rather than convert it to a Nikon mount. The search for a demo photo fro the listing is what brought me to this old photo.

    The formerly trusty R8 has developed the dead spot meter problem

    Not sure if I should get another R8 or consider a system change.

    I just sold my R9 last week. It had the meter cells replaced a few years ago.

    I don't think you will be happy with either the lenses or the optics or the digital files or the finders on the other brands

    To get a Nikon or Canon camera with a decent finder you will probably have to go to one of their single digit pro level bodies, which are more expensive than the new M. You may want to just live with the R8 until we see what can be done with the new M.

    Other that that just about any dSLR will do fine

    That's what I had figured. Part of the problem was that Leica USA had told me the DMR I had sent for repair was not repairable. Turns out they were mistaken, Solms had told them there was no cost for the repair. Confusion resolved and I'm not looking beyond the R8/DMR for now

    I have little doubt the new M's files will be worthy of the Leica name, the EVF with long lenses and my subjects remains a question mark.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Your best bet, Doug, might be to try to get your 240mm R lens converted for the S2 or find the best possible long lenses that can be adapted to the camera. While the price of entry is still high, even though it is half of what it was, the big, bright viewfinder of the S system is excellent.

    Kurt the S system has appealed to me from the moment it was announced! The H adapter along with a 300mm H lens makes up for a lack of long S lenses; the only remaining roadblock for me is the hollow sound my piggy bank makes. It would take an inheritance to buy an S and I'm not in a hurry for that.

    There are some things which are even more expensive than Leicas. How about a few of these?

    Someone is looking for a 180/2 cron on the FS section. My absolute favourite R lens on a DMR.

    Here’s KT Tunstall and Paul Simon shot on the 180 cron and DMR. Thanks for looking

    I'm about to pull the trigger on the DMR...
    Can anyone tell me which software is best for processing?

    I've heard that Photoshop ACR is not the one to use....

    I've been using ACR for the last year or so. No complaints.

    I use LR4 with ACR all the time - works fine with my DMR images.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Doug, you are truly an amazing dude.

    I've enjoyed greatly watching your work for all these years we have known each other online. You are truly a master at what you do. You don't just capture images of wildlife either like some, you go further. Your images capture the essential spirit of the wild, and bring the detail close for all to glimpse. Your work is as graceful as the birds you shoot, both present themselves eloquently.

    I just wanted to say thank you for persisting and perfecting what you do. And thanks for sharing the results and the process. Watching a master perfect and fine tune his craft while you shared the natural world you experience daily has been a double treat.

    Thank you for continuing with the DMR also, whiteout question the finest ten megapixels I ever shot with. It isn't an easy camera to master but you certainly know how to make it sing.

    Keep on Truckin' Dude!

    Hi Marc,
    Yes when it comes to colors, texture and the Leica R lens, it is my favorite digital back. It looks like it will die with me or I will die with it which ever comes first.
    Best Regards,

    Another one to show that the DMR is not just a daylight camera.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    I've always been captivated by your shots Doug, and more so (no disrespect intended, as I had for a brief time myself, the R8/DMR) given the "older" equipment.

    This latest shot though has thrown me completely, it IS stunning. You are truly a master of the craft.

    Honestly Doug, these are unique. They have a fine art etching quality to them. Audubon would have approved. The second House Finch is my favorite.

    Thanks guys.. I sweat the details for these 'yard' photos where I have a lot more control of perches and backgrounds, and now that I've retired from the cube farm I can wait for the right light and activity. These photos are my favs from about a month of work.
