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?

Started a new blog and shared my experience with M10 and a vintage Elmar 35mm. Comments and feedbacks are welcome.

As background, some years ago Leica produced a collectable M9 Titan, all titanium including the 35mm 'lux. Part of the kit that came with it was a very nice holster and also three sizes of finger loops. These finger loops attached directly to the side of the M9. The combination worked superbly.
Now, to get the same functionality with an M10 you need to buy a hand grip ($us415) plus a finger loop ($us135 each). $us650 just to get the finger loop function when it was designed into the M9 years ago, without having to fit a new bottom on the camera. See https://www.kenrockwell.com/leica/m9/titanium.htm to see the attached finger loop. The current offering is clunky and unnecessarily complex.
Leica where are you? When can we see that M9 Titan finger loop on an M10 or M11?
btw the holster with the M9 Titan looked and worked well, except for no top strap. It meant that if one bent over too far the camera fell out. I notice that newer holsters have such a strap, though it slows down a quick draw. The guy with the Titan will shoot first.
Meanwhile, does any third party make finger loops that attach direct to the M10? The Wotancraft wrist strap is close, but not good enough.
I hope you are having a beautiful day. I just would like to share with you an article I published in my Journal: https://dennisberti.com/my-journal/leica-m10-menu-settings
It's pretty basic, with all my essential settings. If you a new in the Leica world, it could be interesting reading. If you are an experienced user like most of you in the LUF, you can just skip the words and take a look at the screen photos. So you can compare my settings with yours, and share your feedback here.
