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.

      Hi guys, so I had my "reporter edition" of M10-P sent in, which had freezing issue, and Leica replaced the old CMOS with a whole new one. So far, no freezing, however, I run into 2 new "issues" if they really are.
       
      1st one: Sometimes when I press the "Play" button to view the photos, a brief "loading" appears on the screen for like less than 1 second. I didn't do that right after pressing the shutter, even when I was in the menu screen, and that happened, but not very often.
       
      2nd one: Sometimes when I press buttons (like Play or Menu), and there is no response, so I had to press them again, and this is not very often either.
       
      I don't remember that I ever had those 2 issues before I sent my M10-P in. I wonder if it has something to do with the very low battery? Have you guys encountered same things on your M10 or M10-P? Are they really issues?

      Will the Leica the CF 22 flash work with the D-Lux 7? The CF 22 instructions state: "All flash operating modes are also available when the Leica CF 22 is used with the Leica D-Lux 4."
      Several weeks ago I sent my question to Leica New Jersey technical support, but haven't received a response.
      I haven't put the CF 22 on my D-Lux 7, not wanting to break the camera in case the flash and camera are incompatible.

      Dear all,
       
      I bought the "reporter edition" of M10-P about 5 months ago. And it constantly has freezing issue. For the past few weeks, it's just been way too often, like 1 out 2 days it would freeze. I always turn the EV on when I'm shooting, and before it's about to freeze, the EV looks like it's having dropped frames, pretty lagging and then it would freeze, so I have to take the battery out and restart the camera. And many times it just freezes after I turn the camera on, I don't even get to press the shutter.
       
      Yesterday, I went out shooting and it froze again, but this time, after I restarted the camera like I always did, I found that the screen got a dark horizontal line on the very top of it (please view the photo I uploaded). I checked the photos, it's usually without the line on them, unless the ISO is 4000 or higher, then I got part of the line (or banding?) on the left side.
       
      Is this normal? Should I send the camera in for a replacement of the CMOS or something?
