Through-the-lens (TTL) metering, with variable aperture, center-weighted TTL metering for flash exposure with system-compliant SCA-3000/2 standard flash units.
By metering the light reflected by light blades of the 1st shutter curtain onto a measuring cell: strong center-weighted; for metering on the sensor: spot, center-weighted, multi-field metering.
(to ISO 320, room temperature and normal relative humidity:) EV 0 (with aperture 1.0) to EV 20 (with aperture 32). Flashing of the left-hand triangular LED in the viewfinder signals that the exposure meter reading is below the working range.
ISO 320 to ISO 25000, adjustable in 1/3 ISO increments, choice of automatic control or manual setting.
Choice of automatic shutter speed control with manual aperture preselection – aperture priority A, or manual shutter speed and aperture setting.
Using accessory shoe with center and control contacts or using SCA adapter set. Optionally triggered at the 1st or 2nd shutter curtain.
= 1/180 s; slower shutter speeds can be used, if working below sync speed: automatic changeover to TTL linear flash mode with HSS-compatible Leica system flash units.
(with SCA-3502-M5 adapter or SCA-3000 standard flash unit, e.g. Leica SF 26) Control with center-weighted TTL pre-flash metering.
Two silicon photodiodes with collection lens on the camera base.
± 3 1/3 EV, adjustable in 1/3 EV steps via the menu, and when using correspondingly equipped Leica system flash units.
