Leica Launches New SF60 & SF C1 Wireless Remote Control

 

 

The SF 60 and SF C1 can be used with the Leica SL, M10, S (007), Q, CL, M (Typ 240), M9, M8 and S (006), provided that the camera has the most recent firmware update. See the table below for a full breakdown and what firmware is required for use.

The SF C1 is only compatible with the SF 60 flash unit, but multiple SF 60 flashes can connect to each other for wireless triggering. They can also fire other Leica flashes (SF 40, SF 64, SF 58) via optically triggered slave mode. This flexibility of the SF 60 and SF C1 make them a fully featured solution for lightweight high-quality lighting.

SF C1 Wireless Remote Control Unit

Flash units can be organized 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. This opens up countless options for professional light set-ups with system flash units. As is the case with the Leica SF 60 flash unit, all settings can be read off and easily changed on the color LCD panel of the Leica SF C1 remote control unit. Two AAA batteries allow for 3,000 exposures and a microSD card slot allows future firmware updates to be uploaded to the SF C1. Operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency, the SF C1 has a transmission range up to 328 feet (100 m) and doesn’t require line of sight.

 

SF 60 Flash

The new flash is extremely compact and lightweight at just 10.58 oz (300 g) without its four AA batteries. Yet, with a guide number of 60, the flash packs a solid punch. A built-in zoom covers 24-200mm. The control layout is simple and intuitive with a high contrast color LCD. Expect a set up batteries to last anywhere from 220 to 1,500 exposures, depending on power level.

For video, there’s an LED light good for 3.5 hours. And for those wanting to shoot outside at wide apertures, high speed sync (HSS) is available up to 1/8000th.

 

Pricing

Priced at $595, the SF 60 comes in at only $100 more than the smaller SF 40, and $250 less than the current top of the range SF 64. Seems like Leica is trying to be somewhat aggressive here in order meet the needs of professional photographers that often carry multiple flash units on a job. The SF C1 remote control unit is priced at $350, again, very reasonable for the added functionality.

Both the SF 40 and the SF C1 are available for pre-order from Leica Boutique Bergen County Camera.

Leica Prices Increasing on May 1st!

 

On May 1, 2018 Leica is increasing prices on a wide range of products by an average of about 5%. Affected products include most M bodies (film and digital), nearly all M lenses, the black Q, TL2, S (Typ 007), many S lenses and a few other items (66 in total). To quote Leica “this revision is necessary due to the current exchange rates and the increase in raw materials and production costs.” This does make sense, as every year about this time we tend to see some increases, designed to reflect the ever-rising costs involved with manufacturing hand-built products from exotic, expensive materials.
 
There are no increases within the SL-system, and recently announced products such as the Thambar-M 90mm, Noctilux-M 75mm, and CL are not affected. If you were thinking about the M10, best to grab one before months’ end as the price is going up $400. The black Q sees an increase of $245 (making it the same price as the silver Q) and TL2 bodies go up $245 as well. If you have any questions feel free to call or stop by the store and we will be more than happy to help.
