2.0 firmware summary


Recommended Posts

First, DNG automatic noise reduction set or no switch. Second, SL is the 1.1 firmware in the M file to support the wireless flash, upgrade 1.2 and 2 firmware can not use the PROFOTO Wireless Flash (TTL-C Canon) and Canon ST-E3 wireless flash. 1.2 and 2 firmware Canon 600EX top flash can be used, PROFOTO wireless single point and (TTL-N Nikon) flash can be used. It seems only for the camera.

Mate. you need to get over this.


Every one of your 60 posts are about this. It's time to start looking for solutions that don't involve a firmware change on the SL because that ain't going to happen.


A simple single pin hotshoe adaptor will likely solve the issues you're having with a non-Leica TTL shoe on a Leica camera. 5 bucks on eBay. Here's one.




you'll need a short cable to the pc flash socket for it. You might be able to find a pass through version. i probably have 5 of these in a drawer already.


It's not Leica's job to support non Leica triggers on Leica cameras. it's not a fault. It's probably a deliberate thing to protect the shoe circuitry. The Nikon version probably fires because the pins line up. the Canon one only gets two contacts and the camera doesn't think that's a good idea. You need to remove the contact from the four Canon TTL pins on the trigger from touching the hotshoe. Then *IF* the Profoto TTL trigger is actually capable of working as a totally manual trigger and *IF* you have the trigger set up properly to do this (I remember what a pain it was to get full manual the Pocket Wizard Canon TTL system). you should be fine.


I use Godox and Elinchrom triggers nearly every day with no issues.


I'd also be concerned you have cooked the shoe, if it were me.

p.s. I totally agree with you about the long exposure noise reduction. It should be able to be switched off. I can think of many instances where this would be useful.


I can also think of a dozen other things, just off the top of my head. leica did good with 2.0 but the SL still has a ways to go to be all it can be.

The Profoto Air remote (non TTl-version) works perfect on the SL (I use it). Of course you have only manual mode. TTL-versions are only available for Nikon or Canon.

TTL-N can trigger, 1.2 firmware test can, 2 no test.


With coke or very rubbish, ready to out of the SL.
