About the Leica SF-58

The LEICA SF 58 is a powerful and versatile flash unit that is perfectly adapted to the Leica M, R and S systems. Whether you employ its sensitive control options to carefully lighten up a subject, its innovative reflector technology to diversify the lighting and capture movement, or its full capacity to turn the dead of night into living day, is up to you and your creative incentives. Thanks to ample power reserves, extreme speed, comprehensive features and simple handling, the LEICA SF 58 is cut out for any challenge - and, thanks to its integrated USB port, the firmware always remains up to date.

While the main reflector is responsible for the indirect flash, the secondary reflector can be used to lighten up the darks and generate brilliant results. The extra light can be adjusted in three steps and adapted to the subject.

The LEICA SF 58 boasts a tilt reflector with a broad adjustable range. It enables you to bounce the flash off a roof or wall and avoid harsh shadows and reflections. This form of indirect lighting is good news for portrait photographers, as the reflector will tilt up to 7 degrees vertically, facilitating fantastic close-up shots.

Thanks to a spacious, back-lit LC-Display and a well-structured menu, the LEICA SF 58 is very easy to operate. All flash functions are effortlessly adjusted using all but four keys. Depending on the camera type and mode, the LEICA SF 58 will automatically register the focal length, aperture and ISO and display the information on its screen, simultaneously calculating the maximum range at maximum flash power. Successful exposures are optionally confirmed with a beep.

The LEICA SF 58 sports an integrated USB port for firmware updating, making this flash an investment with a bright future.

The optionally available diffuser can be used to create an exceptionally soft lighting effect, covering focal lengths down to 16 mm - great for portrait photography. The integrated wideangle diffuser disc illuminates the angle of an 18 mm lens.
