By PLHHas anybody had intermittent TTL flash issues with the R8?
I get random firing of the SF-58, particularly with movement of the camera, and sometimes no flash on shutter release. Inside, low light, and with program mode the viewfinder shows f/5.6 @ 1/250 as it should. Contacts are clean, wiggling the flash at the foot doesn't make it fire. Camera, flash or the coupling of the two?
The phenomena does not seem to occur with a SF-24D, though i have no negatives to review yet.
R8 serial # 243xxxx. I've had no other problems with this camera.
By Edwin HoI am considering Leica SF24D as a replacement for the Olympus S20 (small auto flash).
Took some shots of family Christmas gathering with the S20; a little under-exposed (subsequently adjusted in LR by increasing exposure).
I hope to hear from those who had experience using the SF24D with an M9.
By SashaI'm a hobby shooter and have gone through Nikon, Canon, and Sony gear, and then got into Leica M a couple of years ago. Love my M10P and M3 and am building up a nice collection of M lenses. I have been shooting with just natural light but would now like to experiment more with portraits and controlled lighting and external flashes. I've been looking at the getting a couple of Godox AD200 Pros and would like to control them with a flash trigger from my M10P. I can't find anything official about Godox/Leica compatibility on the internet, although some say that a Godox X1T or X2T Nikon version will work with Leica M and I've also read somewhere that the Olympus version is the one to go for. Does anyone have any first hand experience or advice on this?
By Johnclare369Hi 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?
By Knives52I picked up a Leica SF24D flash recently to use with my M6TTL. I was thinking about testing it with my Canon EOS R dslr and using its screen to get familiar with the flash without wasting film (I don’t mind if it will only work using Manual mode on the flash).
I think I remember hearing years ago something about TTL flashes not pairing well with some newer “more-electronic” cameras’ hot shoes and possibly frying the camera’s electronics — though my memory’s extremely foggy on that.
Does anyone have any experience using the SF24D on a dslr of any make/model and/or on any digital Leica body?
Would covering the flash’s 3 “TTL connector pins” on its hot shoe with electrical tape (while leaving the main center pin uncovered) be necessary or safer?
Apologies in advance if this is a dumb question.
