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.

      After lots of discussion about future of APS-C. How many of you think that the real reason for CL/TL being held back is the lack of native lenses ? 
       
      A little history :
      - 2014 : T was released with two lenses : 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 & 23mm f/2.0
      - 2015 : Then two more with 11-23mm f/3.5-4.5 & 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5
      - 2016 : Leica release the only two made in Germany TL lenses : 35mm f/1.4 & macro 60mm f/2.8
      - 2017 : CL was released with 18mm f/2.8 pancake lens  
      Leica were on a good track, 1 or 2 TL lenses per year. But after 2017 ? Nothing happened at all ! 
      We should have 10 to 14 lenses by now. Not 7. 
       
      Only 1 fast lens. Only a trinity of slow zoom lenses. Only 2 compact prime lenses.
      None of them have OIS. None of the bodies have IBIS. 
      No portrait lens, aka equivalent to fast 85/90mm or 70-200mm f/2.8. 
      No fast wide angle. ex : equivalent to fast 18/21mm. 
      These lens cannot be replaced with any adapted M and R lenses. 
       
      So what’s the problem here ? Leica may think that APS-C line do not sell well enough. So they stop releasing new lenses  ? It is a kind a vicious cercle. But  no new lens = death of the system. 
      Just like they left the S line died by releasing only bare minimum body upgrade and no new lenses for half a decade. 
       
      So what do you think about this situation ?

      My [almost] two year old Tekiac Stealthcover’s tripod mounts popped out - yes, both of them. And the plastic started cracking around the tripod mounts, to boot.
      Thinking it’s time to update it anyway I went to LFI (where I first got it from) but lo and behold, it’s not there anymore.
      A quick visit to the Tekiac website and wouldn’t ya know it, it’s no longer in production.
      Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative? Really only need it to do the three things the Stealthcover did well:
      Have a grip Cover the logo Have a tripod mount Bonus points if it comes in black 🤟
      Thanks!

      Recently bought CL as I used leicas many years ago as a prof photographer - now retired.
      Is it possible to program  CL to only use "M" setting or to remain on the "M" setting when manually put on ?
      (I want to control my exposure myself and not be dictated to by the camera.)
      What "off camera" flash should I buy for the CL. Thinking of second hand Metz or new Nissin but which hot shoe to use ???
      Thanks

      Hi, I've just bought my cl. Can someone explain how top right wheel is used for magnifying the evf image. Thanks

      Playing around yesterday, I discovered this weird flare pattern when pointing at the sun. Images are at f/8 and f/5.6.
      Is this ... normal? I’ve never seen anything like it.
      Setup was:
      Leica CL M-Adapter-L Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 Voigtlander 75mm f/1.5 No filters on any lens, either, so not sure what could be causing it.
