    Looking for Your Expertise

    Hello All,

    One of the many benefits of being part of this forum is the excellent insight of the members. Ask almost any question and you can receive so many excellent solutions.

    Here is my question, I don't like to use flash when using a Leica rangefinder how ever. At times it would be useful to mount a strobe in the corner of a room to bounce some additional light into a room. Does anyone know of a solution to remotely (wirelessly) fire a Leica strobe unit from an M camera? Thank you

    If your M has a hot shoe (e.g. M6 and newer) you can use Pocket Wizards (or similar beasts) - see PocketWizard® - Remote flash and camera triggers for professional and advanced amateur photographers

    Gary, Just as Shac points out, wireless triggering works but no TTL.

    Search eBay. There are many inexpensive units available. Go for the ones with a 2.4GHz frequency. The lower ones (433MHz) are not useful at all.

    Pocket wizards. But be sure to get the right cord to attach the receiver unit to the flash.
