Unfortunately my CS120 just became victim to the same issue.
Whirling noise, no AF. Had to remove the battery to stop it. Cleaned contacts etc, etc. no go,
Stopped right in the midst of a fashion shoot with an expensive model. Other lenses are fine.
What a massive PITA!
Seems I can’t complete a shoot without some issue with the S system.
Your question is a bit confusing.
When you say “Profoto airplay” do you mean Profoto AIR Transceiver or Profoto AIR Sync?
Profoto AIR and Pocket Wizard are not compatible. One cannot trigger the other. Only Profoto AIR Receiver is built into the B1,
which means you will need a Pocket Wizard plugged into the Profoto B1.
So yes, you will need…[Read more]
Me too Tim!
Just decided right after the Photokina announcements … and got it
After the move to CMOS for the (007), and not liking the cosmetics of the SE, I decided to grab a (006) while a new one could be had.
Sold the S2P to a friend for a good price, and the move cost me less than I expected, so it was a no brainer. Three more years of c…[Read more]

Apparently those pining for a S f/2 portrait lens won’t have to wait long.
Lightroom 5.5 now has a lens profile for a Leica SUMMICRON-S 1:2.0/100mm. A portend of what is to come at Photokina?
Can’t imagine what that is going to cost, especially in CS version that I’d demand. At F/2 it will be the fastest S lens, and the DOF will probably…[Read more]

I’m very glad it worked out. I’m sure that was a huge sigh of relief. I haven’t had that scenario with my S or previous S2 since I rarely shoot to cards – only tethered, but it’s a good thing you found a solution. I’ve had that pit-in-the-stomach feeling once or twice and it’s not been a pleasant thing. It’s good to…
LC Technologies was able to recover all the missing files.
While other recovery programs may have been able to do it, I just could not chance it … so I opted to send it off to the professionals and pay for the recovery in case it was a more difficult issue than I could deal with. They have the ability to crack open the CF card a…[Read more]
You could not recover any of the photos Vintola?
I’m looking for experiences where such a thing has happened, and there was some way to recover them.
This was a 32 gig Sandisk card purchased from B&H, so highly unlikely a counterfeit.
Frankly, hearing that Sandisk cards have failed on you like this is surprising and doesn’t…[Read more]
A bit more clarification:
The full featured Profoto AIR transceivers are called AIR Remote … meaning you can adjust the levels of the pack/mono-light and the modeling light of any unit with AIR remote receiver built-in (Profoto or Hensel).
The Profoto AIR Sync transceiver is for triggering only, and doesn’t have the controls for a…[Read more]
LOL! It’s a bit difficult to get my head around the practicality of LV on an S2 … then add in CS Leaf Shutters into the equation. It’s even harder for me to figure out because I don’t own any DSLR with a reflex mirror and LV. My Sony A99 is a SLT fixed translucent mirror with an EFV.
Holding a little RX1 out in front of your face is one t…[Read more]
Thanks for asking David.
Sadly, removing the battery overnight didn’t solve the issue, and I am in contact with Kelsey Fains at Leica regarding next steps.
She is forwarding my description to Germany to see if there have been other instances of this.
If there is a solution, I will share it with the group so we can all…[Read more]
Fiddling with the set-up, I pressed the two outer buttons to reset the SF58 … but held them down … reset flashed 3 times and then went out. I was then able to see TTL-HSS in the menu selection and select it.
Sounds good until I saw that the lens f/stop was still not matching that of the camera nor the ISO, so everything gro…[Read more]
Thanks for looking David.
You’ve written that your S2P firmware is version 126.96.36.199.
The newest S2 firmware version (which I had loaded around December or January) is listed on the Leica site as: update version 188.8.131.52
V184.108.40.206 is listed as adding support for the 45/2.8 (CS) that I am trying out. So I confirmed what firmware was in…[Read more]
Thanks for answering David.
Yes, I know it is supposed to only work on TTL-HSS … and that is the way it worked before.
Suddenly, TTL-HSS is not available at all in the SF58 selection menu, but TTL is there … then, the camera and flash will fire in just TTL up to 1/4000 in CS mode and up to 1/125 in FP mode.
The problem seems to be…[Read more]
