|it works An expensive flash for the functions that it has, unfortunately there are few alternatives as far as I am aware for what I require.|
|sirnigel||3:00pm on Sunday, July 11th, 2010|
|I needed a new flash gun. Something better than the one built into my camera, but not one that needs a degree in electronic engineering to operate. I bought the Metz 36 AF-4 to partner a Leica D-Lux 4 digital camera (same as panasonic LX-3).|

With Metz mecablitz digital into the future
The flexibility of Metz mecablitz units can be seen in the different flash families. They have the respective functional equipment to go along with the different requirements profiles. In principle, there are the following groups:
System flash units
With System flash units, using a flash is a great deal of fun. Thanks to their being highly-developed and fully automatic, you only have to attach the flash, and away you go. System flash units are available in different versions. In this way, they provide a specific connection for a specific brand of camera, with which it works together perfectly. The best examples are the Metz mecablitz 58 AF-1 digital, which was awarded Best Flash Unit in Europe 2007/2008*, or the Metz mecablitz 48 AF01 digital, which received the coveted Tipa Award 2008 in the category Best Accessory.
SCA flash units
Cameras can change, but not Metz! The unique special feature of Metz SCA flash units is that one and the same flash unit can be used with different cameras it doesnt matter whether they are digital or analog. By simply replacing the adapter, system cameras of different manufacturers can be used. Flash units with SCA adapters are particularly good for reflex cameras, because they offer the richest array of special functions. Of course, the SCA modules are also suitable for cameras from many other manufacturers, because of the adapters available.
*EISA Award 2007/2008
Automatic flash units
Automatic flash units are connected to the camera via a hot-shoe contact or a sync cord connection and have their own automatic flash control. This means that it isnt the camera that controls the flash, rather the flash itself responds intelligently and meters the light as precisely as required by the subject. There are automatic flash units ranging from professional handheld flash guns to small, handy compact flashes. For compact digital cameras (with flash connectors), there is the particularly handy mecablitz 20 C-2 in this category, which offers a vertically-tilting reflector, despite its minimal size.
Slave flash units
The group of slave flash units is intended to be used for particularly varied and interesting directed lighting. This is because they can be used as so-called off-camera flashes, because they can be positioned anywhere in the room. Because they dont need a direct contact to the camera, they are especially interesting for owners of compact digital cameras that dont have a flash connection option. The macro-flash mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital is regarded as an innovation. Its wireless TTL control makes it unique in its class. Even the mecablitz 58 AF-1 digital or the 48 AF-1 digital can be used as a slave, even though they are not directly assigned to this category. In this mode of operation, they also support the flash modes of the respective camera manufacturer.

The unique special feature of Metz SCA flash units is that one and the same flash unit can be used with different cameras it doesnt matter whether they are digital or analog. By simply replacing the adapter, system cameras from different manufacturers can be used, because they offer the richest array of special functions. Flash units with SCA adapters are just as suitable for system camera owners as for medium-format camera owners. All members of the SCA family meet this criterion, whether it is a handheld flash gun or a compact flash.
A second look
Many wedding photographs are exclusively standard poses. Anyone who comes up with additional ideas here can score bonus points. Why not photograph the bridal couple or wedding guests during small talk? With some flash, the subject is given additional sharpness and brilliance. For this purpose, there are different partial light output levels to choose from with Metz handheld flash guns.
Tough professional use requires the maximum flash power. The new, practical, high-power Power Pack P 76, which attaches to your belt, provides even more energy. This increases flash output, while simultaneously reducing the flash recycle time. This is a dramatic improvement, which makes it possible to fall back on maximum flash power when taking a battery-draining series of shots.

Light power for pros
Powerful handheld flash guns Worldwide, professional photographers put their trust in the powerful 76 MZ-5 digital from Metz. Above all at weddings and fashion shows, its ability to take fast series of shots pays off. Its secondary reflector which makes it possible to set perfect highlights in the eye is worth its weight in gold. It goes without saying that the camera-specific system flash modes of the various manufacturers can also be used perfectly with this professional flash, through different SCA adapters.All menu navigation settings can be activated from the device itself, and a locking function means you wont accidentally change fixed values. Of course, the 76 MZ-5 digital keeps up with the times and provides outstanding flash convenience with a great deal of creative flexibility in setting up shots. Discriminating photographers will appreciate the lasting flash performance ensured by the NiMH rechargeable battery and the Metz charger. It offers considerably more power than the previous NiCad rechargeable battery. The control unit of the 76 MZ-5 digital is specially equipped with a large, illuminated dot matrix display. Plus, the reflector of the zoom flash unit automatically adapts to a focal length range of 24 - 105 mm depending on the type of camera. A wide-angle diffusing disk, included with the flash, enables expansion to 20 mm.

Especially versatile: Presenting the simple and highly functional flagship of the Metz SCA compact flash units. It is convincing due to the: High light output: GN of 54 at ISO 100/21 and 105 mm focal length. Large light angle: illumination of a focal length range of 24-105 mm. switch-controlled secondary reflector, with light output that can be reduced by using a grey filter. Ease of use: a large display ensures you always have a good overview. Only two function keys and a control dial facilitate good handling. Great flexibility: To begin with, the Metz 54 MZ-4i digital is available with a standard foot. Furthermore, due to the SCA system, there are many adapters available for almost any camera. Diversity: Via various adapters, there are also a great deal of interesting special functions such as E-TTL and E-TTL II flash mode from Canon, i-TTL from Nikon, or ADI flash control from Sony Alpha, and many more, which increase the creative flexibility.
The slave flash mode is interesting in order to obtain especially varied directed lighting. Completely without a cable (wireless), this method can be used to place and trigger an external flash at any place in the room. In this way, interesting additional lighting can be set, whether in the form of a light accent or a side light, for example. Naturally, multiple slaves can be used at the same time. It is particularly exciting to use this to obtain separate lighting for the subject and the background of the picture.
Slave mode at close range: The Metz macro flash is attached directly onto the lens, thus enabling precise and creative lighting in the macro range. In addition to which the Metz mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital can also be used in its slave function for effectively brightening up dark areas of the picture.
Creative at close range:
Correct lighting is of particular importance in the macro range. The Metz macro flash 15 MS-1 digital is especially suited for this. Due to its positioning directly on the lens the light cannot fail to reach its destination. With its ring form and completely wireless functionality, the new Metz flash unit is excitingly attractive. Special light accents and a variety of lighting options are also possible thanks to adjustable reflectors. Thus, directed light can be adjusted in terms of contrast and brightness. In the slave mode, the Metz mecablitz 15 MS-1 can also be used to effectively lighten shadowed areas of pictures.

For the imaginative
Flash with a fun factor: Have you ever been upset due to photographs that are too dark, because the integrated flash in your camera was once again inadequate? Wouldnt you like to have a handy flash unit that can also be used separate from the camera once in a while? Then Metz has the perfect solution for you! Let the curtain rise for the Metz mecablitz 28 CS-2 digital, with technology and a size that have been optimally matched to compact digital cameras. The fun factor comes from the self-learning slave mode and the clever EASY mode. For the first time, flash results can be affected directly by means of the immediate correct buttons (+/-). This means you only have to take the shot check the results on the cameras monitor and readjust using the buttons if necessary. With this slave model, you increase the flash power absolutely without any undesired side effects. This is because it draws its energy either from alkaline micro batteries, which are available everywhere, or from equally economical rechargeable Micro batteries.
max. GN of 28 for ISO 100/21 and 85 mm

A ADI Modern further development of the TTL flash control for Sony Alpha and Konica-Minolta cameras in which, for example, the data for distance to the subject must be put into the flash exposure in addition. AF measurement flash An autofocus auxiliary light (AF measurement flash) integrated in the flash unit automatically supports the central autofocus sensor of the camera in the event of low ambient light. For a multi-zone the process. Automatic unit switch-off During extended breaks from photographing, the flash unit is switched automatically to an energysaving standby state to prevent the power source from discharging (Auto-Off). Through the wake-up function, the flash unit is reactivated, for example when the shutter release is actuated. AF measurement flash, the decentralized AF sensors are supported in
D D-TTL Modern further development of the TTL flash control with measurement pre-flash technique for Nikon and Fujifilm cameras. 3D and D-TTL-3D For the 3D-TTL (Nikon) and D-TTL-3D flash control, additional data such as the distance to the subject, for example, is taken into consideration in the flash exposure. Dot matrix display with soft keys Individual adaptation of the display on the camera system and the operating state for optimum and self-explanatory operation of the flash unit via soft keys. E E-TTL Modern measurement further development technique for of the TTL flash control with pre-flash Canon EOS and PowerShot cameras. E-TTL II
Flash readiness indication The flash readiness indication illuminates when there is enough energy in the flash capacitor of the flash unit. G Guide number (GN) The guide number is the code number for the light output of a flash unit. It is dependent on the set light sensitivity ISO and (for zoom reflectors) on the reflector position, as well as on any reflector attachments that may be in use (e.g. wideangle or telephoto lens cover). For high speed synchronization (HSS), the guide number is dependent on the shutter speed as well. H HSS high speed synchronization In high speed synchronization (HSS), you can flash with exposure times that are shorter than the flash sync time of the camera. As a result, flash photos with wide aperture openings are possible for high ambient light levels, for example to limit the depth of field in portrait shots. I For E-TTL-II, additional data is taken into consideration during i-TTL Modern further development of the TTL flash control with measurement pre-flash technique for Nikon and Fujifilm cameras. i-TTL-BL For the i-TTL BL flash control, additional data such as the distance to the subject, for example, is taken into consideration in the flash exposure.

B Buzzer Additional acoustic status messages can be activated for flash readiness, flash exposure control as well as warning tones. F C Correct exposure indication The correct exposure indication OK is shown on the flash unit after the photograph if the subject in automatic or TTL flash mode was correctly exposed.
With Motor Zoom mode, the main reflector illuminates the subject more than necessary by one reflector position. As a result, the additional dispersed light provides softer illumination of the subject.

Flash bracketing three photos of different flash exposure: minus correction value, no correction value, and plus correction value.
M Manual flash mode Flash mode with unregulated light output. The flash unit delivers the full light output, if no partial light output is set. Manual zoom The zoom position of the main reflector and thus the illumination of the flash unit can be adjusted manually to the lens focal length. Modeling light Modeling light is a stroboscope light with a high flash frequency lasting a few seconds. With this quasi permanent light, the light dispersion and shadow formation at the subject can be checked before taking the photograph. Motor zoom The zoom position of the main reflector and hence the illumination of the flash unit can be adjusted automatically to the lens focal length. P Partial light mode Manual flash mode with unregulated light output. By setting partial light mode on the flash unit, the light output or illumination duration of the flash unit can be adapted specifically to the photographic situation. P-TTL Modern measurement further development of the TTL flash control with pre-flash technique for Pentax and Samsung cameras. R REAR Synchronisation to the 2nd shutter curtain for more natural blurring effects for longer exposure times.
Remote operation A remote system consists of a master or controller flash unit on the camera and one or more slave flash units. The slave flash unit is remotely controlled wirelessly by the master or controller flash unit. With a master flash unit, the flash light contributes to the exposure, in contrast to a controller flash unit. S SCA 3002 adapter system For system cameras with digital or analog data transmission between the camera and flash unit. By using an SCA adapter from the SCA 3002 system, there are numerous additional system flash functions available with flash units from the SCA 3002 system, depending on the type of camera. The firmware of an SCA adapter from the SCA 3002 system is updateable via Metz service for future cameras. The SCA 3002 adapters are an updated version of the SCA 3000 system. SCA 300 adapter system For system cameras for adaptation to flash units of the SCA 3002 or SCA 300 system. Depending on the type of camera, not all system flash functions are supported by the SCA 300 system. Secondary reflectorr To brighten shadows cast in the close-up ranges which appear when using an indirect flash. Slave mode An integrated sensor makes this wireless slave flash mode possible in combination with a master or controller flash unit. (>>> Remote operation) Stroboscope mode Manual flash mode for flash sequences with a selectable intensity, frequency, and number of flashes, e.g. for special effect photos and motion studies.
Swivel reflector Can be tilted horizontally and vertically for indirect flash. Can be tilted vertically for indirect flash. T TTL flash control While taking the photograph, the flash light is measured through the lens (TTL = through the lens) by a sensor in the camera. The light output of the flash unit is terminated as soon as the subject is correctly exposed. TTL fill-in flash control Reduces too high subject contrast (e.g. to brighten dark shadowy areas in bright sunshine). U USB Interface for firmware updates via the Internet. W Wake-up The flash unit can be reactivated by actuating the shutter release if the flash is in energy-saving standby mode after an extended break from taking photographs. (>>> Automatic unit switch-off) Wide-angle attachment Increases the light angle of the flash unit. Depending on the type of flash unit, the wide-angle attachment is either integrated or attachable as an accessory. Z Zoom size Automatic adaptation of the display of the reflector position of the flash unit to the picture-taking chips for digital cameras.

Press Release: Zirndorf, November 2006
Metz flashes flawlessly with Canon digital cameras
A strong brand gets a new addition
The Metz mecablitz 36 AF-4 C digital is optimally designed for use with Canon digital cameras. The E-TTL and E-TTL II flash exposure measurement makes it possible to precisely control the light output on the camera. The new flash unit is even capable of capturing the mood of a setting. Simply choose a longer exposure time on the camera, and the flash light appears more natural, and blends in harmoniously with the existing lighting.
Not only does it look good, its also extremely easy to operate. The reliable Metz E-TTL flash unit makes it possible to take perfectly exposed flash photographs without adjusting settings. And all that thanks to a GN of 36 with a relatively large range. In addition, the integrated zoom reflector can be adjusted for each focal length (from 28 to 85 mm). This is a valuable function, because it means that a single change of a setting is enough to optimise the light output. Plus, the 36 AF- 4 C digital offers some practical special functions, such as fill-in flash for daylight situations (depending on the camera), which allow dark shadowy areas to be lit up effectively. Or an integrated AF measuring flash, which acts as a valuable focusing aid for poor lighting situations. As an alternative: The practical flash-ready indicator in the cameras viewfinder.
