Size of SF26D vs older SF24D Flash?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

For those who have used both the older Leica SF24D flash and the newer SF26D flash, how much smaller is the new one.  The dimensions aren't listed consistently on the websites I've checked.  I would like the smallest flash that works on the Leica M10 for travel, and I currently own the SF24D.  It works fine for me.  Is the SF26D smaller?  Are their other, smaller flashes that work?  Thank you.

The SF26 is noticably smaller than the SF 24. Maybe 30% smaller. It also takes AAA batteries versus CR123's and it has a limited bounce function. You can also use FEC on the SF26 via the camera but not on the SF24. AFAIK the SF26 is the smallest TTL flash available for a Leica M. The SF26 is made by Metz and sold by them with other camera mounts so you might get the dimmensions off the Metz site. The SF24 is discontinued.

 

Personally I prefer the larger but more powerful and more functional SF40 (a rebadged Nissin i40). A great little flash that balances nicely on the M.

      I am looking for an off camera flash solution for my M10 (which would possibly also work for my M240)
      Is there any chance that my Nikon Flashes or Fuji Flashes (Nissin) would work? Otherwise I am looking for a good solution with a controller that may also manage more than one flash lights. Is there a Godox Solution that fits? Thank you for your advice

      I own a m10 and a SL.  The latter is used with both SL and M lenses.
      I picked up a SF 60 used and have enjoyed it.  I would like to experience TTL with off-camera strobes, so I am considering the C1, but have questions:
      1) will it provide TTL sync for both cameras, even the SL+M lenses?
      2) Will the Nissin Air 10s controller do the job at half the price as the Leica C1?
      3) Which Nissin strobes have you triggered successfully with the C1 (as fill or secondary strobes)?
       
      Thanks in advance!

      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.

      I've notice the ISO has automatically set to 100 when the shutter dial on a red flash symbol or I think it's 1/200.  My question is will the WB also automatcally dial-in to "flash" accordingly or stay at whatever before (auto or something else)?
      Thank you.
