Leica Fotografie International - Special issue on Module-R

The Leica R with digital module is the only camera in the world to cover the entire world of photography from analog to digital. A special publication of the "Leica Photography International" magazine is now available to explain how to make optimal use of the various possibilities offered by the system.

Over 56 pages, the special edition provides practice-oriented information in all areas relating to the camera.
Topics include the behavior of the R lens range in digital operation. The path taken by pictures during digital preparation and editing is also described. Professional photographer Uwe Dürigen outlines his experiences with the Digital-Module-R based on his India reportage. And the French photographer Bernard Richebé explains how to create black and white pictures using digital photography. Leica journalists also accompanied another professional photographer, Jörg Schwalfenberg, on a shoot with the digital Leica R. And finally: how to transform digital pictures into high quality prints on paper is a further topic dealt with by the special publication. A number of short experience reports from prominent photographers are also included, as well as a large number of pictures providing proof of performance from a wide range of application areas of the LEICA DIGITAL-MODUL-R.
