I've had great results with the new Profoto A1, which is an event shooter's dream flash, beautiful light, massive capacity, and instantaneous flash recycling. I realize there are many Profoto haters out there, but for my event shooting, I've been extremely pleased with the A1 on a Canon as well as on a flash bracket using a Profoto Sony trigger. I'm using a Leica CL as a backup (small, light, wonderful quality TL lenses, excellent higher ISO performance) and wanted to see how the Profoto A1 would work (in manual mode, of course) on the CL. According to Profoto, all you need is a flash shoe/foot with a single center pin, which the CL has. But no matter what configuration I try (and, yes, with the manual switch on the A1 turned on), the flash will not fire. Leica's regular SF40 and 60 flashes work just fine, so I know that flash functionality isn't a problem. Any one have any suggestions?
I have a Leica SL and CL and use the CL generally as a light weight back up. The SL works very well with a Nikon compatible Profoto Air TTL trigger but when I put the trigger on the CL, which seems to have exactly the same pin configuration, the flash will not fire. The link between trigger and flash works fine; it's the connectivity between the CL and the trigger that seems to be the problem. Any ideas or suggestions welcome. Thanks David
