Happy Birthday, My Dear!

Denmark, July 2, 2015

Today I brought out my Leica DMR again from the Pelican Flightcase it had been stowed away in while I have been using other cameras. Today is its 10th year birthday!

 


Hurray, we are together and that is all what matters. Photo of the Leica DMR made with the Leica Q.

 

Today I took out my Leica DMR and did a few photos with it.

The whole unit is strangely old-fashioned today and somehow reminded me of a NASA unit put together to perform just one mission.

I had forgotten most functions of the Leica R8 camera it was attached to, and somehow the ability to “rewind” had gotten lost for my camera, so I had to rewind manually with the rewind arm (this clears the sensor and that is the only purpose as there is no film to rewind).

I spent a couple of hours dusting off the camera and find a 2GB memory card that was not SDHC (and which are the only ones that will work) and trying to get into the hang of it again.

The sensor and image quality of the camera is exquisite, but the technology seems so old-fashioned. The weight is extreme ... so much metal!

And I have so many other cameras to use.

Fact Box:

The Leica DMR is an unusual camera that lived a too short life as the first digital Leica SLR camera, and regrettably became the last Leica R camera. In 2009 Leica officially announced that they would shut down the Leica R camera production.

About 3,000 units of the legendary Leica DMR was produced from 2005-2006 and while some are unaccounted for, others are destined for a long life.

New price was $5,995 / €4,750 in 2005. Second-hand prices in 2015 are $4,000 - $6,000.

For more on the Leica DMR and the background, read Page 1.

Leica Digital Mocule R
The Leica DMR (Leica Digital Mocule R)
is a digital back that can be attached to a film camera, Leica R8 or Leica R9 in two minutes. The sensor was made by Kodak, the firmware/electronics by Imacon, body by Leica Camera AG.

The battery issue

One battery is helpless low on energy no matter what I do, the other seem to charge 50% somehwat. New batteries are almost impossible to find and goes for $500 on eBay when found (Leica part no 14447) . There is also a website that primises to refurbish DMR batteries, so I might try that. It's an odd problem to have a camrea that won't work because there is no batteries for it anymore.

As for the hardware, the focus was spot on. But most things on the Leica R8 and Leica R9 camera, I'm confident Leica Camera AG in Wetzlar can still adjust and repair. I know they are out of spare parts and occasionally have told people they cannot repair their Leica DMR units (and have then often offered to trade them in so the user gets another and more modern Leica camera and Leica Camera AG gets the Leica DMR to use as spare parts for other users).

 

Rebuilding Leica DMR batteries

There seem to be two possibilities, and I haven't personally used any of them yet. So you wll have to see what works for you. Feel free to mail to me and tell the results so I can keep this updated.

There is a German company that has specialized in refreshing the batteries for the Leica DMR digital back. You should be able to send the batteries to them and get them refurbished or recharged:

https://www.akku-mainz.de
McAkku
, Gaustrasse 75, 55116 Mainz, Germany. E-mail:info@akku-mainz.de, Telephone +49  -06131 - 553 02 37. (Opening hours: Monday-Friday: 10-13 & 14-18 (10 AM -1 PM & 2-6 PM)

There is also an American company that has serviced DMR batteries:

As the battery pack for the Leica DMR can be hard to get, Michael Bass Design has specialized in rebuilding the DMR batteries to as-new performance and also offer other batteri pack solutions as well as other tricks for DMR.

My 10th Year Anniversary Shoot

I went outside in the garden and took a few photos of a flower and put the camera back in the Pelican Flightcase again.

I hope to have more information on the batteries when I return to tell you more in 2025 for the 20th birthday.

Till then, happy shooting!

Is it a good camera?

Yes, the Leica digital back on the Leica R8 or Leica R9 with the legendary Leica R lenses is a very good camera.

But I must say this. When I did this article, I looked through the archive to find some photos to post with this article, and in 2009-2011 I would often use the Leica M9 and the Leica DMR alongside.

This reminded me what I learned then, which is that the Leica M9 did good photos just as well as the Leica DMR. That is why I decided already in 2010 that I would leave the big Pelican Flightcase with Leica R equipment at home and simply travel with a Leica M9. With the Leica M 240 in 2013, it has become even easier because the EVF-2 digital viewfinder enables me to nail the focus precisely (The Leica M9 and Leica DMR would occasionally suffer from mis-alignment of the focus mechanism).

It's over. But I still love my Leica DMR.

Also check out the "Birdman of Sacramento" Douglass Herr's website www.wildlightphoto.com for more intersting DMR photos. It's his "fault" I eventually gave up film and finally went digital in 2008.
As of 2015 he still uses the Leica DMR to capture some amazing photographs of wildlife.
