During that time I was using a Leica M9 and the results were quite satisfactory. Now I wish to do some more testings 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.

I shoot mostly in A mode on the m8, with the flash set to "A mode" should the aperture be displayed on the flash when I change the lens aperture? The manuals are not very clear. Please provide some insight. Still my outstanding question is it appears that in A mode I still need to adjust flash aperture, is this correct for the m8 or m9? Hi there, I have an SF My understanding is that there is no communication between the aperture setting and the flash unit for either flash.
So yes you have to set it manually. I tend to use the flash in manual mode anyway. I set the aperture and shutter speed I want to use then tell the flash what aperture and Iso I have selected. After than I adjust the power on the flash to get the results I want. Paul If you use the SFD in A mode on a Leica digital M camera, you will need to ensure the aperture on the flash matches that of the lens.
Lens aperture is not transmitted because there is no electronic or mechanical linkage between M lenses and the body - though focus distance is communicated via the rangefinder.
TTL flash exposure is possible with the SFD and digital M cameras, and the results in terms of exposure accuracy are usually reliable. Try taking a few test shots and see for yourself!
