During that time I was using a Leica M9 and the results were quite satisfactory. Now I wish to do some more manua of this mini flash on the Leica M to see how it performs. Let me briefly introduce the Leica SF 24D again.

It is a portable flash, with an overall dimension of 66 x x 40 mm WxHxD. Without battery the weight is just g with the two lithium batteries included, it is roughly less than g. In a word, it does not add any significant mwnual weight if you want to carry it in your bag for everyday use.

Here are some major features:. You should understand that using the type CR A batteries aims at reducing the size of the flash. But these lithium batteries are more expensive and not commonly found in stores such as supermarkets.


I have hoped that rechargeable batteries may work but later on I found that they are not compatible. It is highly important for you to get some more spare batteries if you are going to shoot with flash in big events.

In the instruction manual, it says a new set of batteries is capable of providing up to flashes at full light output. Not a bad figure. The number of flashes may probably be increased if you always use automatic mode.

No matter which mode you use, you need to match the aperture value on the lens the same as those on the flash. In this test, the exposure was set at aperture priority mode.


The distance of the subjects was 1 meter. These images were taken in PNG format and no touching was done during converted to jpeg format for posting. From the images, it is not difficult for you to find that optimal exposure cannot st achieved easily because the flash metering was deceived by the objects.

In this case, it was the white wall that deceived the flash sensor at the front of the flash.


Of course there is no difficulty for us to modify the image in Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop in a few steps. Your email address will not be published.
