    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Nice post, cmb.

    I guess the 2xextender shots are from a tripod.

    Are the other 180mm shots from a tripod/monopod, or handheld?

    Regards,
    Peter

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Peter - the first image of the turtle is handheld, the other three of the turtles are tripod mounted.
    Of the other images, the two images with the bee, the bark on the three trees, and the image right above the bark image are tripod, the rest handheld.

    Pine Grosbeak feeding on wilted Delphinium flowers:



    R8/DMR, 280 f/4 APO, shoulder stock.

    Plants in the Delphinium genus are toxic to humans and animals during most of the year, apparently the Grosbeak is either immune to the toxins or has found a time of year when its toxicity is low.

    Since the fall colours are almost here, I am planing my annual trip to the Cabot Trail to shoot some of the colour. Looking back at some old images, I found this one. It was shot with the DMR and 100mm APO.

    Here is a shot from a drive I took today. This is called Northwest Cove. I used the 35-70mm and a panorama head.

    Thanks Geronimo and Doug.

    I just downloaded Capture One Pro 4.5 and it works well with the DMR files. It seems to make them very sharp. Here is the above processed in Capture One Pro ver 4.5.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Question for you DMR-guys. Do any of you who also use digital MF-gear feel that the DMR delievers as good tones and IQ as MF, if Megapixel are not the point?
    I sold my DMR but feel I can not totally get the same IQ with my M8 and planning to move into MF for that reason (tones, sharpnes, color depth, microdetail). I dont print large. I wondered if I might save the money and just get another R9 and DMR.(I have neber sold the 15/3.5, 19/2.8 and 28-90)

    SO how does the DMR compare to MF in your opinion?
    Thanks, Thomas

    What is the panorama head? Makes me curious!

    The details in the trees in the back definitely stand out, as well as other details. I just got used to Lightroom ...

    I just used a RRS BH-40 with the tripod levelled. The camera was on a home made L Bracket, shooting vertical and pivoting on the nodal point. The wertical images were then stiched in Photoshop CS3 using the merge function.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Here is the full size file after my images were stiched together by CS3 and prior to my cropping and resizing. It is about a 30 megapixel file, saved as a 10 quality jpeg, at about 10mb. I will not leave it up for very long so I don't put too much load on the server, but feel free to download it and do some pixel peeping.

    Victor:

    The stich was just done in CS3 using the Panoramic merge function. I first used C1 V4.5 to convert the DNG files to tiffs and then fed these to the merge function. I though C1 V4.5 did a better job on the reds than just sending the DNG files and having ACR convert them.

    I ran the same files through AutoPano Pro and I think the CS3 stich looks better.

    Hi Thomas
    I agree with you. To my eye as well the DMR does have something extra, until now never surpassed by any other digital ~35mm system. Just look at the foliage in the background of robsteves panorama. Perfect exposure and a very noble optic, still, the magical results of that system keep surprising me.
    I hope the many former DMR shooters and now Medium Format shooters on this forum will answer your question.
    By the way I wouldn't mind if Leica introduced an entry level DSLR with re-use of the very same 1.37 cropfactor 10 Mp DMR-Kodak-sensor and the very same firmware in order to keep the price down and thereby gain a larger customer base for their fabulous optics

    Rob, thanks for making the full size panorama downloadable. Absolutely stunning !

    Thanks Victor! No idea on the color, but I wondered that too. No filters, no funky processing. All the images are pretty much straight through C1. FWIW, lens is 180/2.8 non-apo, shot around f8.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    These are from today. Since the kids and their friends were playing in the backyard, I thought it would be a good time to get a picture to send with the Christmas cards. Last year I never go around to it and my wife ended up sending some pictures taken with her EOS rebel

    Here I am setting up the tripod and taking a few test exposures. My son's friend was trying to run in front of the camra as I took the picture.



    I think this one may go out with the Christmas cards.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Nice Rob! I like the last one very much. I always find this type of composition very difficult for me to compose successfully and have it maintain visual interest across the frame, which works well for me in your image.

    I just mounted the 19mm vertically at the nodal point and panned about 180 degrees. The composition was a fluke

    I knew I liked it when I shot it, but was lucky to get that composition with the V to it when it was all stitched together.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Used my DMR-R9 today in a studio shoot for headshots.
    I used also a Hassy503cw-Aptus, and the DMR stood its ground well.

    DMR-R9 came back from 3 weeks at Leica-NJ after a focus problem; right after I had gotten it.

    Color coming from the DMR is quite different to color from the Aptus, the latter one being very color-accurate when using custom white-balance. Did the same for the DMR shots, but images came out still to warm (image below adjusted in Aperture 2).

    Lens was the 90mm APO, which is new to my collection.

    Robert, you have to show me how to get at that result at a workshop. That last shot is grate.

    All three images were done using a pan at the nodal point. The top two were with the 35-70mm zoom.

    I made my own L- Bracket and the other rail to center the pivot over the nodal point. you can also buy the equivalent from Really Right Stuff. I don't think their universal L bracket is big enough for the DMR, so you may need to get the more expensive nodal kits that allows you to mount the DMR just with the regular RRS DMR plate.

    You have a nice balance to the Balet shots. The B&W gives them a very classic look.

    Great images. They really show the dynamic range of the DMR and your skills as a photographer.

    You have just one typo, I think you meant thread, rather than threat.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Robert - thanks for pointing this out. A typo that always occurs to me; "Threat" would actually make a funny "thread" title.

    The DMR does fine with studio strobes, no doubt.
    I use Pocketwizards to trigger my power pack.
    Flexcolor is good with colors and sharpness (compared to Aperture, for example, where images can come out too saturated).

    The screen preview can sometimes be to interpret, though; I set mine to "monitor contrast low / monitor brightness standard", that seems to mimic best what I see on my calibrated monitor.

    One other problem can be that the histogram y-scale is sometimes not properly normalized - the curve creeps along the x-axis. I see the same problem on the M8, btw.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Peter:

    If you are shooting at 100iso, I think I found firmware 1.1 to still be the best. I now shoot 1.3 because I like to use the higer ISOs, but If I was just shooting studio, I would look at putting 1.1 back on the DMR.

    Firmware 1.1 may solve the histogram problem too. I never noticed the problem you described because I tend to use the clipping indications more than the histogram. On 1.3, the clipping indicator is set a bit too low for my liking.
