CL with D-lux7 flash...?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Greetings!

Anyone tried to use the little flash unique that comes with the Leica D-Lux 7 package on a Leica CL body?  Would that be compatible?   (just for fill flash purpose)

Not as TTL flash. Does it have a manual setting? 
The Panaleicas use the Panasonic flash interface.

No settings at all, just an on/off switch.  Also, it takes its power from the camera battery via the hot shoe pins, so if the connection isn´t correctly wired, there´s a substantial risk of damage.  I wouldn´t bother.

I don't think that there is a risk of damage, the flash circuits on the camera are well protected, but it simply won't work.

Completely agree.
I have D-lux 109 whose small flash is the same as the one carried by D-lux 7 and simply does not work the concession terminals are not coincident.

      You Tube VideoHello everyone!
      I am back with another mod. 
      This time I converted my Leica CL into a full spectrum camera to use it for infrared photography.
      Here is a time-lapse video. I will soon post some photos from the camera.
      Hope you like it.

      My CL didn't switch automatically between LCD and EVF any more,  so I sent it in.
      As it turned out, the eye-sensor had shifted. Given that the camera just returned from a trip through Tanzania in rather adverse conditions, it was not pristine to put it mildly when sent in and it had received a couple of shrewd knocks, so it came as no surprise that Leica refused guaranty. I did protest gently, but success could not be expected. Anyway, the estimate came to 375 Euro, which I of course accepted.
      However, just now, the camera was evidently opened up for repair and CS revised the cost to 135 Euro. I find that really honest and customer-friendly.

      Dear Leica-Enthusiasts,
      I have been shooting with the Leica CL since a few months now and always use M lenses with the Leica and Novoflex adapters. However, over these last months I have noticed that lens-adapter-camera combination is not completely rigid. I can now slightly rotate the mount back and forth. It does not seem to affect the IQ but I am worried that it might loosen even more.
      Has anyone had similar experiences? I will probably just send it in to Wetzlar...

      Hello. I have all the three compact cameras mentioned above and recently, everytime I connect them to Leica FOTOS and go to remote control mode, the only exposure setting I can control is the ISO. The options for aperture and shutter speed is greyed out and I can only control it with the camera physically. Why is this happening? I tried to put the camera on all PASM modes and made sure snapshot mode was off but didn't work. I reset the cameras and formatted the SD cards one million times as well. I can change other settings like resolution, metering, file format, etc.. except exposure!
