I intend to use this flash on a flash bracket. does anyone know if i can just use a flash sync cord or would I need to get the x1 transmitter. Of course I don't want to lose the ttl and HSS capabilities.  Thanks Joe --the most beautiful thing on the earth is the earth

I'm in a position that I can treat myself.  At the moment I have the two kit lenses as per profile but I like shooting birds, occasional critters such as butterflies and general scenes and people.  The 100-400 MkII is just within budget but seems too much lens for a modest camera so a lot of money, and a bit more reach but a lot more weight than the very respectable 55-250 IS.  Additionally if I am in the process of upgrading then it seems that the 18-135 USM nano would give me the nice...

Hello, I’m considering having a photo editing PC built, see specs below. I’ll use two 1920 x 1200 monitors. This would replace my aging laptop that makes me wait, and wait, and wait… while using LR cc & PS cc. Typically I edit 800 + photos from my d810 which average about 73 MB each. My goal is to minimize my waiting for the computer to process the editing moves, keep the cost reasonable (for my wallet) and allow plenty of easy upgrades in the future as deemed appropriate. Once processed, the...

Hi, My Leica X1 camera has a spot on the camera lens (see pic below, lower left) What is it? Will it affect the performance, and if so, can I remove it somehow? Thank you very much!

I would like to upgrade the graphics card in my old, secondary pc and I'd be grateful for suggestions. The motherboard is an Asus P5K Premium which has these slot specs: 2 x PCIe x16 (blue @ x16 mode, black @ x4 or x1 mode) supports CrossFire Technology 2 x PCIe x13 x PCI My old graphics card is an ATI 5770: http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/desktop/5000/5770# I would like to put in something newer that will work with my motherboard when I clean the dust in the case. The computer...

I'm using the "Dot Tune" method to AFMA my two cameras, one is a FF 5D mkIII and the other is an APS-C 7D mkII. My question is, do you also include the x1.6 for the crop factor when calculating distance to the focusing target? Example: (85mm x 1.6) x 50= Distance --Big Chief "Run-a-muck"

Does anyone have a recommendation on which Quattro camera I should go with? I’m looking at doing portraiture work with a Foveon sensor, and I’ve whittled my choices down to the DP Quattro DP3, or the SD Quattro H (plus Sigma 85mm F1.4 ART). I realize there’s a huge price difference between those two, and ultimately the SDQ-H is a much more scalable solution, but the DPQ3 has a few things in its favor, The DPQ3 is a small, and exotic looking camera. That can be a bonus for clients not...

Hi guys, I've had a couple of Godox AD360 heads and using the Godox X1 Receivers and Triggers to fire them, Ive had no problems with them until recently when they started to misfire, not fire at all.  It's usually just one of them at a time which fails to fire, I can't even fire it using the flash button on the rear of the head, or the test button for that matter, but if I switch it off and on again it will, until I fire the camera, it fires the flash once then fails to fire again. Now here's...

Hi- Finally bought a used X1--in pretty good condition, pics I took first day are great. What can I get as a viewfinder besides the very expensive Leica one? I was thinking of the Olympus VF-1 17mm which is actually 34mm, close enough? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am purchasing an A6500 and am trying to decide whether to keep my Minolta lenses for use with an LAEA3 adapter. Does anyone have any experience with Minolta lenses and this adapter? Does it change focal length at all (other than the usual x1.50)? I understand they will all work only manually. Is there focus confirmation? Any serious limitations, other than no autofocus. Any help is much appreciated.
