Leica M10 + Lightpix Flash Q20

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Dear M10 Friends and Users:

 

I am wondering if any one has tried to use the Lightpix Flash Q20 with the digital Leica M.

 

If you are not aware, Lightpix Flash Q20 is a cheap and wireless method of using flash with cameras.

 

Here's a video on Youtube.

 

From the FlickR page, I found this photo but not sure if they actually used the flash with the camera!

 

Look forward to your responses.

 

 

I am not affiliated with this company in any way.

I don't have the flash unit but I do have the transmitter and receivers – and they work very well. They are extraordinarily cheap and if you just want off-camera flash then it is a great solution.

 


I see that Exodies above has made a very helpful comment about getting them in pink – but I think that you probably don't need to worry too much about this.  Exodies obviously has an unusual taste in colours for his cameras – but the black version works very well.

 

You can use them with a big variety of flash units – without TTL of course.

 

One thing I've just discovered – and I'm going to start a new thread about this – is that for some reason rather they will operate the flash even at high speed. I had imagined that the camera wouldn't permit the flash to be triggered at anything beyond 180

I use this flash frequently. You have the smart option to have an off camera mini-flash you can put elsewhere to light an small portion of the total content of your picture an also you own with this flash an unobtrusive good optical trigger for another flash you were using (as you know we the Leica users do not have on our cameras  these little flashes for that purpose other cameras have).


As lately I'm trying to install at home a very modest studio I've bought as well the separate FlashQ triggers (1 transmitter + 2 receivers) also mini tools,  you only have to care not forget to get off when the session is over.

All of them are small, useful and not to much expensive.

I have the SF C1 with two SF60 and a MG10 which I use as my OCF flash kit on my SL.

I do not have these flashes but I think they are brilliant idea. Compact, you can just detach from hot shoe leaving the transmitter attached to use as off camera flash in situations which you just want a fill in flash in an ambient that do not require a strong fill of light for my M10.

btw, it does not hurt much if you leave without remembering to retrieve it as the cost is cheap comparing to other flashes.
