Leica R MOTOR DRIVE R8 (14313)
The Leica Motor-Drive R8 is a high-performance film advancing accessory for the Leica R8/R9, and is especially designed to be a perfect complement to the camera.
Its integrated wrist strap and its two shutter release buttons for vertical and horizontal photography add convenience to the camera-and-Motor-Drive combination in any situation. It's rubber-cushioned film advance mechanism with a load-controlled clutch prevents vibrations from being passed on to the camera body, and it only emits a very quiet, inconspicuous sound when in use.
The Motor-Drive R8 features three film advancing speeds: S (Single) is for single exposures; CL (Continuous Low) for picture sequences of up to 2 frames per second and CH (Continuous High) for picture sequences of up to 4.5 frames per second. As an alternative to manual rewinding, the Motor-Drive R8 also offers two-step motorized film rewinding.
The Motor Drive R8 and the camera are powered by the specifically designed Battery-Pack MD-R8.
A Tommy-screw facilitates quick and easy attachment and removal of the Motor-Drive R8. The Drive itself is also fitted with a 1/4" threading for tripod mounting as well as a guide hole according to DIN to secure alignment.
The threaded eight-pin socket on the left of the base section connects to the Remote-Control R8 unit, different electrical release cords, and also to (appropriately configured) external power supply units.
