STREET PHOTOGRAPHY KHLONG TOEI, BANGKOK WITH THE LEICA Q

The Leica Q with its full-frame sensor and razor-sharp 28mm f/1.7 Summilux lens a beast of a camera. The Leica Q is a fantastic camera for street photography, quiet, discreet and being a Leica very easy to use. I always believe in keeping your street photography kit simple when on the streets. One camera one lens, the Leica Q works beautifully if you like shooting at 28mm with the added function of the crop function 35mm and 50mm.

ADDING THE LEICA SF 40 FLASH TO THE LEICA Q

Although the SF40 flash unit is particularly easy to use, it offers a full range of features like high-speed sync and a nine-stage video lighting function. A guide number of 40 for focal lengths to 105 mm and a compact size make it an ideal companion when traveling light.

The Leica SF40 Flash is perfectly balanced on the Leica Q and performs as expected. Although the Leica SF40 Flash is just a Nissin i40, just rebranded and with support for Leica TTL and a red dot.
