Profoto Air Remote with Leica Flashes


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to use Leica flases off-camera connected with the Profoto Air Remote on the camera's hot shoe? I'd like to test SF64 flash off-camera and the only remote I have is Profoto, but I can't make it work.

SF64 is an older flash and it does not have wireless transmission.

There is an optical sleeve mode. not sure if flashes when other flash go off or infrared.

in any case you can use it indoors as a slave.

If you just need to extend the reach you can use a TTL-Nikon extension cable on your hotshoe

Oh, is that what's hiding behind that cover with Leica logo!? This is new to me... and I happen to have this cable, so I'll give it a try now.

Thanks!

Nikon SC-17 TTL Flash Extension Cord

Look on eBay 

if you need TTL you need to use the Leica SF60 + SF C1

I use SFc1  + Nissin i60a with latest firmware, they work wirelessly in TTL. On the hotshoe it only manual mode.

if you are using it in M mode you can use any other wireless system. Profoto, Godox, Elinchrom.
