  1. Hello, I'm trying to get my M11 and 24D to get along. I'm using a Nikon SC-17 cable, and while the flash will fire in TTL mode, I cannot seem to get a proper exposure so it seems to me that TTL is simply not working. I checked the batteries and they have plenty of power in them. I've told the flash what aperture setting I'm using, and set the ISO on the camera to 800. The shutter speed is set to the flash sync setting (lightning bolt). It simply does not appear to be working as a TTL flash. I'd appreciate any advice. I'm open to the possibility of needing to buy a more modern TTL flash but am hoping that won't be necessary. Thanks!
  2. Hey , this is exciting! https://leicarumors.com/2022/06/18/just-announced-new-godox-xproii-l-ttl-wireless-flash-trigger-for-leica-cameras-s-sl-sl2-m10-q2-cl-and-more-to-come.aspx/ I have been waiting so long for this trigger. I am really happy that I choose Godox. and while I was able to flash with the system now I can use HSS which is very convenient sometimes !
  3. Read all I can on here but still in need of some advice pls. Am still using original 601 and need a simple and low cost flash solution for very occasional use (family events etc). I have a Nikon SB25 speedlight from my film days so could use that - but think it would need an optical trigger etc. I don’t know much about flash TBH. Recommendations pls for a safe and simple set-up? Thank you.

  5. Our local Botanical Garden is a fine after work recreation area. I tried out something when sun was very low and most flower beds were already veiled by summer's dusk. Canon 5D MKII with Elmarit R 60 mm macro plus Leica APO converter 2x, tripod, reflector and free external flash. It is a matter of patience and time to manipulate flash power and angle plus distance to reflector. flash bounced against reflector from slightly left flash bounced against reflector from above left without flash, only with reflector, longtime exposure approx. 1/2 - 1 sec.
  6. Hello everybody. This is my first post. I own a leica m6 ttl since 2011 and I want to shoot some night scenes. Any suggestion for a flash with a swivel head? I have a nikon sb 28 but i believe it is not the apropiate solution thanks, I need some input. Armando armandosalazar.weebly.com

  8. I now found out, that my Leica X2 works great with my Canon Speedlite 430EX II. There is no TTL but it syncs up to 1/2000 Do you have any experiences with external (non-Leica) flashes?
  9. Hey, is the SF20 flash that I use with my (fully mechanical) M4-P safe to use with the Mamiya 7ii (with electronic shutter)? Any danger from trigger voltage of the SF20 (fried circuits)? I have no experience with this. Has anybody tried it or can give advice? Thank you very much.
  10. Does anyone use wireless flash system with the Leica M9 such as PocketWizard of other? If yes, what brand and type of flash do you use with it? Are there any limitations? For me, TTL is not so much a limitation as manual mode is ok (using light meter). Any other things to think about?
  11. Hi I just got a flash for my M6 classic (the sf24d). I got it from a friend, because he thought it was broken. I sent it to Leica and got a new one in return! But: I dont know how to use it with tri-x in semi-sunny daylight (sunny-16 dont work with 1/50th shutterspeed and f/8:)). Do any of you have a few tips to a novice in flash photography? Thank you. Regards Øystein
  12. All, I have a vintage Rokinon 26A flash that was used with a Pentax K1000. It's light and would be about perfect on my M9. Does anyone know if it is safe to use? I've been told that older flashes can put out too much voltage and can damage newer digital cameras. Cheers! Ben Photographs by Ben
  13. I am having trouble with using the flash unit on my V-Lux 4. In my latest "test" I set the flash to "Forced Flash On" and then rotated through all the program modes and the flash only works on "Snapshot" and "C2" mode. Seems very random and can't understand why it doesn't work in the modes I normally use (e.g. Program Mode". Suspect I'm missing something simple? Prue
  14. I have my MP for 10 years and for the first time I am need to use flash. I don't even know where to start. :confused: What is the best recommended flash for LEICA MP? What other accessories I may need?
  15. Hi all, I am looking for advice. I used the M9 with studio flash and had no problems, then subsequently gave my hot shoe to my daughter. Bought myself another, connected up the lights, fitted the shoe and the cable, and NO FLASH! Test button on hot shoe fires the flash, but the camera doesn't Bought myself yet another hot shoe (simple, old fashioned) and tried again but still no flash. Unless anybody knows different I can only assume that a connection within the camera has failed. Rather inconvenient for my studio work! Does anybody have any suggestions? Regards Mike
  16. I know this has been answered before, but I'm having a little trouble. I have M8, with Metz flash MZ-3 and a SCA 3502 M4 adaptor. The flash will not fire when set into manual mode, I have seen that this has worked for other users. When the flash is slid off the adaptor it fires, but does not fire when the shutter release is depressed. So far I turn the camera on first, turn on the metz flash on manual and dial in the relevant values, but when I press the shutter, nothing. The shutter speed is set to below flash sync speed. I am beginning to worry that there is something wrong with my leica! Any help is greatly appreciated!
  17. I'm a new digi-5 owner and cannot figure out how to get the built-in flash to work in the snapshot mode. I've gone through the manual to make sure the appropriate settings are correct (no burst, no multi-film, etc.) i still get the Xed out flash symbol in the snapshot mode. thoughts on how to get the flash working in the snapshot mode? thanks!
  18. Hello, I have an M9 and a SF58 flash. I admit to being pretty thick at following technical instructions / manuals. I have looked at flash threads on this site and gleaned some information, but am still unable to join the dots. I'm looking for some BASIC advice and tips to get started... Do's and don'ts, which mode to use (TTL, Automatic, or Manual), how to set the camera and flash for that mode. I assume that TTL is the best mode for the novice to try... Could be wrong. ================ Like many others I am put off by the SF58's heft... It is somewhat of a beast. I have read Sean Reid's articles on flash in general and the SF58 in particular. I am intrigued by his suggestion to use the flash off camera and use the Nikon SC-28 coiled cable. Would that I could make the wrist strap that Sean created to dangle the flash. Also, I wonder if Sean supports the camera hand with the flash hand in order to avoid shudder.
  19. What flash to buy for on my M8.2? I see there are SF 20's SF 22's SF-24D's and more... I'd like it small but fully compatible with the camera! Thanks guys!
  20. Quantum T5D-R, Adapter D23w-r, Lecia M9 all seem to be talking. OK it seems the D23w-r adapter for the canon mounts on my Leica M9 and fire the QFlash remotely with no problem when I hook up the freewire receiver and transmitters. SO why not try TTL mode on the strobe head SO it works...(I am not through with my testing because the Turbo battery is charging now) I have to do a few more shots but I am amazed that it communicates with the camera to some extent!
  21. I am looking for a suitable flash unit to use with my M7. I know most Leica users don't use flash but I quite like and I like experimenting so I thought I would try it out. Im just not sure what flash unit to use, I want to use it for fill flash but I think I need to get a flash that will allow faster sync speeds. If anyone has some experience using flash on the M7 then I would much appreciate your input. Thanks.
  22. Hello, I have just bought an SF 20 flash for my M7. I'm still trying to figure it out, but do I have it right when I say that the range (throw) of the flash is in proportion to the size of the aperture "dialled" on the camera itself, that the larger the aperture, the further the range? Also, how far beyond the furthest target (subject) should the flash extend? Let's say one is taking a picture of a table of 6 people ... The person nearest the flash is 2 metres from the flash and the person furthest person is 4 metres away... How far should the range (throw) of the flash be? How far, if at all, beyond the furthest person should the range extend? Also is the width of flash produced controlled by the focal length of the lens? In other words is the flash from a 24mm lens wider than the flash from a 35mm lens? Is it so that that the wider the flash the less the range? Maybe I'm barking up the wrong trees?
  23. Dear All, I received as a gift a used SF Flash. Probably bought in the US or UK. I might have a problem with reading the instructions but I couldn't trace how to change the setting from feet to mtrs. Can anyone please help me? Thanks a lot for your attention.
  24. I am interested in using my M9 in studio with some Novatron lights. Does anybody have a suggestion regarding a good hotshoe-to-PC adapter? Thanks:rolleyes:
  25. what is the best flash or M240 ? not too big SF 58 ? thanks
