Has anybody had intermittent TTL flash issues with the R8?
I get random firing of the SF-58, particularly with movement of the camera, and sometimes no flash on shutter release. Inside, low light, and with program mode the viewfinder shows f/5.6 @ 1/250 as it should. Contacts are clean, wiggling the flash at the foot doesn't make it fire. Camera, flash or the coupling of the two?
The phenomena does not seem to occur with a SF-24D, though i have no negatives to review yet.
R8 serial # 243xxxx. I've had no other problems with this camera.

I am considering Leica SF24D as a replacement for the Olympus S20 (small auto flash).
Took some shots of family Christmas gathering with the S20; a little under-exposed (subsequently adjusted in LR by increasing exposure).
I hope to hear from those who had experience using the SF24D with an M9.
I'm a hobby shooter and have gone through Nikon, Canon, and Sony gear, and then got into Leica M a couple of years ago. Love my M10P and M3 and am building up a nice collection of M lenses. I have been shooting with just natural light but would now like to experiment more with portraits and controlled lighting and external flashes. I've been looking at the getting a couple of Godox AD200 Pros and would like to control them with a flash trigger from my M10P. I can't find anything official about Godox/Leica compatibility on the internet, although some say that a Godox X1T or X2T Nikon version will work with Leica M and I've also read somewhere that the Olympus version is the one to go for. Does anyone have any first hand experience or advice on this?
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?
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?
