Leica SF 24D

Posted December 5, The two ancillary screens supplied with the unit for the wide angle and telephoto range cover focal lengths of 24 mm and 85 mm respectively. In this test, the exposure was set at aperture priority mode. Lars, thanks a lot, to pick me up on this.

The reason for my frustration yesterday were simply based on 1 my much higher expection on the sf24x capabilities and Hello guest! This way, I have to sf24s exp.

I’m not sure if the SF24D is true TTL I don’t think it is otherwise leeica fill I would have suggested putting various neutral density filters over the flash to see if you can get it to operate within it’s control range.

If this works, then the flash works as specified. In the instruction manual, it says a new set of batteries is capable of providing up to flashes at xf24d light output. Maybe accurate flash exposure was, quite understandably, a secondary consideration.


I expected the following: In that case it sounds like a defective flash, and the way to check that would be to try another one known to be working properly. It is the perfect match for the Leica M9, M8, M8.

For fill flash the amount of light intensity x time needed is small, particularly at high ISO and large apertures. I am not convinced by the grey circle on the shutter.
