Leica M10 and off camera Flasch

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

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 use pocket wizard and a sekonic light meter. Leica make a remote trigger flash and I think priolite makes a Leica compatible remote triggered strobe.  
 

While you can use some Nikon flash cables none of the flash you mentioned are Leica compatible, unless you use manually.

If your Nikon flash has an Auto (auto-thyrister) Mode it will automatically control flash exposure if used on a Nikon cable.  You have to manually enter camera ISO and aperture settings in the flash.

I use Godox AD 360 flash units with the Godox wireless controller.  It is manual flash only, but allows flash output control from the camera position as well as allowing different settings on multiple external flashes.

Second the non-TTL auto options. My Olympus flash units, the FL600R and FL900R, both work in non-TTL auto and/or manual flash on my M262 and would do so on any other M body, film or digital, with a hot shoe that has the central contact point, meaning I have no question they’d also work fine on my M6.

i would take the non-TTL auto operation of my M units over any dedicated (and way over-priced for what you get) flash specifically for the Leica system.

I contacted Priolite, in Germany. They no longer have a US dealer. Their website hasn't been updated in years so they are not a candidate for me. I own the Leica SF60 and SF C1. It works great on my SL/SL2, but I would like more power for HSS outdoors. 

According to Nissin tech support, all of their flashes that have the latest radio are compatible with the Leica SF C1 trigger even though that won't work on the camera hot shoe. I ordered the Nissin MG10 (potato masher) flash from Adorama as they sell it by itself without the Nissin brand trigger, about 4 weeks ago. It's still on back order.

When I get the MG10, this flash and my two Lieca SF60 flashes and Leica SF C1 trigger will make for a nice compact set up that has HSS and TTL for my SL2 and M10.

      카메라 m10을 보면서 뭔가를 찾았습니다.
      빨간색 표시에 반짝이는 접착제가 있습니다.
      다른 카메라는 이런가요?
       
      Looking at camera m10, I found something.
      There is a shiny adhesive on the red mark.
      Are other cameras like this?

      I picked up a Leica SF24D flash recently to use with my M6TTL. I was thinking about testing it with my Canon EOS R dslr and using its screen to get familiar with the flash without wasting film (I don’t mind if it will only work using Manual mode on the flash). 
       
      I think I remember hearing years ago something about TTL flashes not pairing well with some newer “more-electronic” cameras’ hot shoes and possibly frying the camera’s electronics — though my memory’s extremely foggy on that. 
       
      Does anyone have any experience using the SF24D on a dslr of any make/model and/or on any digital Leica body? 
       
      Would covering the flash’s 3 “TTL connector pins” on its hot shoe with electrical tape (while leaving the main center pin uncovered) be necessary or safer?
       
      Apologies in advance if this is a dumb question.

      Hello,
      I am going to the Arctic cirlcle (Svalbard) in August with an M10 and a 2009 M9. I am dithering over which lenses to take with me.
      I have a 24mm Elmarit, a 28mm Voigtlander, a 90mm  leica Macro collapsible, a 35mm Voigtlander, and a 50mm Summicron,. I don't plan on using big telescopic lenses or a tripod.
      I will be going out in small dinghies to take pictures.
      I would love to get good and wise advice from the users.
      Thank you
      Christian.

      Hi there, 
      Can anyone offer me some simplified advice for using a flash with my m4p, I have an old sunpak auto 140 flash that is non settable and is activated via the ports on the back, what I wanted to know is :
      how do I gauge my shutter speed and aperture for two situations 1) outdoor in good/fair light 2) indoor
      and is it better to use one of the ports over the other (M or X) 
      Thanks in advance,
      Dan.

      Hi! I’m new here. Currently shooting film with an M6 classic. I’m planning to buy a M10 second hand and was wondering what people thought of these Ebay listings. In prices they seem to good to be true, so I’m assuming they are. Any thoughts?
