  1. Hello, new to the forum, new to leica! I own my black m-a for a month now and I absolutely love it. Just finished my 10th roll. Looking forward to taking part in the forum, but I am starting with a problem sorry. There is one little thing I can´t get to work (Spent at least 15 Exposures on it: I own a Flash Q Q20 from my digital days and i cant get it to work with the M-A. The strange thing: The flash fires when the film is not cocked and the shutter doesn't fire. When I cock the film and take an exposure the flash just wont fire. 1. Went to the leica shop and tried it with several new leica flashes. It fires when cocked and when not. 2. Checked some youtube videos - There are people successfully using the Q20 with their M6 or M-P, they even recommend it. 3 Checked the Q20 settings in falsh mode it should just work. 4. Tried it with the flash sync 1/50 setting and faster times And now the strangest thing - Occasionally, like every 3rd time I try it, it works. Am I studip or is the fals just not working with the m-a and I have to get an old leica flash? Any recommedation?
  2. Hi all I've not used flash very much apart from as fill-in for portraits, but I have an upcoming project that may require a little more of it. I have a Leica SF40 flash which I know can work as a slave when combined with the right master unit. Any suggestions as to what the right master unit would be? Thanks.
  3. I have a problem to get the SF 40 flash working on the CL camera. All the settings are as per the manual and the flash setting is on TTL but the flash icon on the display is crossed out meaning the flash will not fire although the camera flash setting is on. I have tried it on manual and auto but it still does not work. The flash tests good when I press the test fire, I have also changed the batteries but have had no success. I was hoping to get information from someone who may have experienced the same problem as I have.
  4. Hello I have recently bought a small fujifilm flash EF-X20 for M9 (its my first flash ever) and maybe it will be a stupid question but I have no idea how to check if its properly mounted because nothing happens when I try to fire it (x mode, m mode, p mode, ttl/manual). I press push button to take it strongly to the end in the hot shoe but cant hear the final click, maybe the contacts dont cover everything and there is no signal? it looks strange from the side as if it couldnt go further or maybe its sth else? The flash fires when I only press a test button.
  5. I picked up a Leica SF24D flash recently to use with my M6TTL. I was thinking about testing it with my Canon EOS R dslr and using its screen to get familiar with the flash without wasting film (I don’t mind if it will only work using Manual mode on the flash). I think I remember hearing years ago something about TTL flashes not pairing well with some newer “more-electronic” cameras’ hot shoes and possibly frying the camera’s electronics — though my memory’s extremely foggy on that. Does anyone have any experience using the SF24D on a dslr of any make/model and/or on any digital Leica body? Would covering the flash’s 3 “TTL connector pins” on its hot shoe with electrical tape (while leaving the main center pin uncovered) be necessary or safer? Apologies in advance if this is a dumb question.
  6. Hi there, Can anyone offer me some simplified advice for using a flash with my m4p, I have an old sunpak auto 140 flash that is non settable and is activated via the ports on the back, what I wanted to know is : how do I gauge my shutter speed and aperture for two situations 1) outdoor in good/fair light 2) indoor and is it better to use one of the ports over the other (M or X) Thanks in advance, Dan.
  7. I am using an SF40 flash on my Leica Q. What is the best way to use the flash for fill while shooting in automatic aperture and automatic speed mode? In automatic speed but a specific aperture?

    It was time for a selfie with the CL and some off camera flashes.🤣 Nobody home to help out, remote app not working with CL, Godox trigger and Voigtländer lens. Back to self timer and guessing position in front of lens.

  10. Hi, I have problems to fire my Contax TLA 200 on the hotshoe of a recently purchased Leica M6 classic. I fidnthat weird because from what I know the Leica M6 classic pretty much takes any flash you put on the hotshoe (without TTL at east). I haven't tried it off camera yet. I did some research on this topic but couldn't find any previous threads covering it. Therefore hereÄs my question: Has anyone of you encountered similar problems or has used this flash on the Leica M6 classic successfully? The Canonlite flash which came with the Canonet QL 17 III doesn't fire either. As the Leica M6 classic has just been purchased I want to make sure that the hotshoe isn't damaged. To be honest, that's what I suppose at the moment.... Thanks for your help!
  11. I am considering in using the Q on some events and need advice for basic radio triggers (non TTL) to fire remote strobes. Similar to the pocket wizard radios. Anyone have any experience in doing so? When I was trying out one on an Olympus camera in the past (using my Nikon radios) somehow it messed up the camera. This is why I am asking for any experienced users that have had real use on the Q. Thanks for the help.
  12. I am scratching my head for nearly two houres now, here is the problem: I am using the SF-58 on M9. TTL works fine, but there is a problem with Auto Mode and bounce flash. In Auto Mode I am supposed to set the aperture manually on lens and flash (ISO info from camera). Here is what happens: Set aperture to f2.8 on lens and flash > exposure fine. Set aperture to f8 on lens and flash > exposure 3 stops underexposed (as if flash is still set to f2.8) I put the flash head to rest position, then back to bounce position > exposure is fine! Same thing the other way around, then with overexposure issue. Is this normal? I don't understand this behavior. I tried several times, always with the same result. Is the flash supposed to be in rest position to change its output via its aperture setting? Thank you very much!
  13. Mounted my SB24 on my new Q but it only fires when the flash is in Manual or Automatic. Does not work on TTL. Does anyone know if the SB24 is meant to work on TTL. If not then has anyone had experience with any other flashes.
  14. Hi, I am still looking for compact size, bouncing capability and fully compatible TTL flash for my D109. I have a METZ 24 AF-1 which was working great with DLUX6 but it is not working with D109. I called to METZ, They replied that they don't have any compatible flash for D109 in their product range yet. I asked to Nissin what about i40, But they replied I have to check it in one of camera store to verify with my camera. I mean they don't know if it is compatible or not? Anyone have experience about this matter and help me? Regards
  15. This won't fit onto the hot shoe of my M-E. It fits snugly on my Canon 6D and will go on the hot shoe of my M6, requiring more force than the 6D. Anyone else have a problem getting this unit on their M9/M-E? Any alternatives?
  16. Question: I want to use an old flash a Vivitar 2800 (Trigger voltage: 40-180 volt.), but I want to make sure the trigger voltage won't damage my camera. What is the maximum for a digital M240? Thanks!
  17. I just found something slightly annoying when using the 24-SFD (A-Mode) and the Q. I know, it is not the latest flash model, but however, it reasonable in size and I have it ... Problem: When I activate the flash and try to lock focus by pressing the shutter button half-way, the focus is instantly unlocked again (focus box becomes green for a split of a second and then white again). Now I can configure the Q to only focus when pressing the AF/AE lock button, but this configuration is not my preferred one in all circumstances. And yes, I can manually focus, too. Any thoughts on this or anything I am doing wrong? Thanks
  18. If I use my Canon Speedlite 270 EX II as a manual flash? With all the weirdness of the M 240, I don't want a smoking piece of metal if I fire off my flash Thanks in advance.
  19. Given the current sensitivities we reach in low light, I often find myself in situations where, out of the camera and myself, I find the one needing more light to aim in the dark is me, rather than the Q which will imperturbably shoot at night with zero blur. I have come to think, what I need rather than a bulky flash is just a lamp to look myself at what I'm composing (and, maybe more often, to compensate backlightings). And so I tried. I now have one of these nice frontal LED lamps, that indeed allows me to compose and, to some extent, cleanup some backlightings. My concern is, that lamp is a high-T white ('blue'), when the remaining low light is almost always low-T ('yellow'), which sometimes results in relatively bizarre dual-color shots. Thus my questions: - are some of you also using lamps instead of flashes? - which models would you suggest? - did you encounter the T color issue? - is there a way, alternate to lamp selection, to postprocess a high-T lighting, maybe selecting a given blue value and shifting it to warmer yellows? TIA! Hervé
  20. I've bought the SF-40 flash. Small and nice. Like it. I still have two Canon 'legacy' speedlites I haven't sold, and an infrared transmitter that can tigger them. I wonder if it would work on SL. I haven't tried it because I'm unsure if putting the Canon transmitter into the SL's hotshoe is a safe thing to do. Is there a chance it may short circuit it and damage the SL?
  21. what is the best flash or M240 ? not too big SF 58 ? thanks
  22. It was wonderful meeting up and spending an hour or so with them in lower-midtown. Here is my first installment - of (mostly) just animals; people will be featured in the next installment MM/28 cron/SF-24D #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6
  23. Here is my second and final installment from our 90 minutes yesterday morning. It was maximum fun with Stuart and Sharookh. Any and all criticisms are welcome. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9
  24. Sharing a few more from various areas of NYC (noted below) for your C&C... Thanks for looking and I'm looking forward to PART IV.... MM/28mm/SF-24D flash #1 Staten Island Ferry Station #2 Lower Broadway (just north of the Bull) #3 John Street in Lower Manhattan #4 The Path Train Station (where commuters arrive en mass from NJ) #5 The famed 42nd and 5th (yes, Stuart, this was the day we almost met up) #6 Times Square
  25. Okay I'm feeling very overwhelmed by the idea of flash on my m2. There so much to take into account but I feel that here is the best place to get a simple answer and a few suggestions. I have an M2 which obviously doesn't have a hotshoe, it has a cold shoe. So a flash sync lead is needed I assume. I like the way the Leica SF24D worked on an m8 I tried. On aperture priority it seemed very usable. I set the ISO and aperture and it determines the power based on subject distance!! Perfect! But I can't use that on my m2 due to lack of sync lead. So please help me out with a few suggestions of flashes similar to the sf24d's shape and size and function for my m2. Sorry if I haven't given enough information but I'm very confused and I just want some nice atmospherics shots for cold shoe mounted flash shooting! Thanks for you patience. Louis
