Master unit for SF40 flash?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi all

I've not used flash very much apart from as fill-in for portraits, but I have an upcoming project that may require a little more of it. I have a Leica SF40 flash which I know can work as a slave when combined with the right master unit. 

Any suggestions as to what the right master unit would be?

very cheap option ($110USD):

trigger https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1360725-REG/yongnuo_yn_560_tx_ii_c_yn560_tx_ii_c_manual.html

I use them professionally since 2016, never had a problem. They are only manual. I use them with Nikon, but they work also with my Leica M10

Would you not be able to use the SF40 as the primary flash on camera and use a cheap slave flash that can be triggered by the flash on the main? You can get slave flashes for <$20.

      Hi folks,
      Original Leica handgrip for M10 series cameras on sale. I used it a few months, it didn't fit my hands, so it came back in the box 🙂 It's looking for a new proud owner who will give it a better use than me. It's MIND condition, with original box. 
      $360USD with DHL shipping included to USA and Mexico. 
      DM if you're interested and if you live in another country, to calculate shipping.

      Ich verkaufe meine gebrauchte Leica M10 mit Handgriff und Leica Service Zertifikat.

      Die Kamera und der Handgriff ist gebraucht und zeigen leichte Gebrauchsspuren.. Kamera war gerade im Leica Service und ist überholt und neu beledert worden.
      Kamera und Handgriff sind mit Amaranto Rot beledert. Passend belederte Handgriffe sind sehr selten Die Kamera hat 10656 Auslösungen. Mit den Service Zertifikat hat die M10  bis März 2022 Garantie bei Leica.
      Das komplette Original Zubehör und die Original Verpackung sind vorhanden.

      Ich verkaufe die Leica M10 von Privat ohne eigene Garantie, Gewährleistung und Rücknahme.

      I purchased this new just a year ago. Barely used. I use my R lenses on an SL, so this is an unnecessary accessory for me.  Sale includes:
      Visoflex 020 base plate Leica nylon pouch box, instructions Lovely leather Art di Mano case (retails for $129 at Leica Store Miami) Shipping is at your expense and must be insured. Import duties at your expense.  Item ships from Seattle, USA.

      Has anyone else had any problems connecting the GPS to the M10 Monochrom?  Most of the time, I see in the rear screen that the GPS icon has an "x" through it...obviously not connected.
      I have the Visoflex connected to the camera and the GPS turned on in the menu. 
      I realize there are areas that pose a problem for GPS connections, but I have tried various types of environments.
      Am I missing something?  I've only had it connect sporadically over the past few weeks.
