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.

      Recently i buyed a flash with synch cable for my LEICA M4.
      After made one shot with the flash, i exidently pressed again on the shuter release without advancing to the next frame.
      I payed attention that the flash fired again.
      I want to mention that the shutter speed dial is in the flash mode
      Is it normal? or i have a problem?
      Thanks in advance.

      I’ve got some dust on my sensor, and I’ve already tried with the VSGO Sensor Cleaning Swab (dry), but there are still some spots on the sensor.
      I’ve read somewhere that it’s possible to apply cleaning fluid - alcohol? - on the swabs to get rid of tougher spots on the M10-sensor.
      I’m living in the Faroe Islands some 1,300 kilometers from the european continent. Therefore I can’t just go to the local photo dealer or Leica store - because there isn’t any near.
      I have to order ‘something’ from some dealer in Europe and get it sent to me - hence my doubt and questions about best practice M10-sensor cleaning.
      - Could I apply ’some kind’ of fluid to the swabs to clean the sensor?
      - What is your best practice tip how to clean the sensor?
      Really hoping for some constructive answers on this thread since I’m 1,300 kilometers from help and have to fix this myself. And also order the required cleaning items on the web.
      Thanks in advance.

      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 just firgure out that my Leica M10, the DNG files opened and exported to JPG by photoshop are always brighter and less contrast than the original JPG generated by M10 body.
      Is there something wrong?
      This is the jpg exported from dng.
