Leica R8 with Quantum T2 flash


Active Member
Hello there,

I would like to know if anyone has used an R8 with a Quantum T2 or T4D parabolic flash unit. If so, I would be interested in hearing about your experience with using this flash.

I have been using a Metz 54MZ3 flash with the R8. I have heard some photographers mention that using a parabolic flashhead such as the Quantum T2 or T4D may provide a more softer light than compared to the rectangle flashhead such as the Metz 54MZ3. Moreover, I was wondering if the Quantum T2 or T4D flash would have the same compatability as using the Metz 54MZ3 as far as the data transfer of information between the camera and flash.

Thank you,
