Leica has announced the SF 60 flash unit and SF C1 remote control unit for use with Leica S, SL and M systems. They can also be used in combination with Leica Q and Leica CL. 

While the flash unit provides an extensive range of options for flash-photography in a compact form, the remote control unit enables off-camera flash with the SF 60 and provides countless additional creative opportunities.

The SF 60 weighs 300g and a height of 98mm. It offers TTL flash, HSS to 1/8000s, flash head with tilt swivel function, a zoom reflector, integrated diffuser and reflector card and a master/slave capability. It has a guide number of 60 at ISO 100. It can also offer constant LED light output for video recording in low light. It's powered by 4 AA batteries.

The Leica SF C1 remote control unit adds a multitude of creative options. It is mounted on the hot shoe of the camera and enables wireless remote control of SF 60 flash units in the 2.4-GHz frequency band. The flash units can be organised in up to seven channels, each with three groups, and controlled either together or separately with the same or different settings. Photographers can use all functions of all the flash units, just as if they were mounted on the camera.

Both units are now available for purchase from authorised Leica UK stores and dealers, and online at the Leica Store for the following prices:

  • Leica SF 60 flash unit - £450 including VAT
  • Leica SF C1 remote control unit - £250 including VAT

This sounds brilliant, powerful GN, HSS, and LED lighting. It even has a neat VU meter style display.

Why are canon speedlites so expensive?

I think i'm getting the message Leica is very good quality and want to be the easiest to use for casual users too.

Quote:Why are canon speedlites so expensive?

Because like most camera companies, Canon doesn't make much profit on the cameras. The money comes from the expensive lenses and accessories. Genuine Canon battery for a 6D? That'll be seventy five quid, sir, thanks ever so much.

It's a similar thing with cars. New cars make little, if any, profit for the car maker. Servicing and maintenance, on the other hand, make them rich.
