|I bought the Metz 36 AF-4 to partner a Leica D-Lux 4 digital camera (same as panasonic LX-3). Excellent value at this pirce, compared to the branded alternative. It is controlled by the camera in full metered mode.|

|Seems ideally suited to be used with Micro 4/3 camera - I use it on a GF1. Really superb results. 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.|

|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.|

Using a flash is more fun than ever before. Its no wonder, because with Metz system flash units, operation simplicity is assured. Clearlyarranged displays, some of them even illuminated, give information, for example, about what values the respective flash program automatically sets. Sophisticated flash techniques are therefore childs play. There is also the guaranteed future factor for units with an integrated USB port. Its not without good reason that the mecablitz 58 AF-1 digital was given the prize for the Best Flash Unit in Europe 2007/2008*. Mecablitz 48 AF-1 can proudly display the Tipa Award Best Accessory 2008. Both units have now gained worthy successors in the mecablitz 58 AF-2 and 50 AF-1.

Spanning large distances:
The choice of flash mode decisively affects the mood in photography. The pictures compared on this page show an effectively brightened subject that was at a great distance. In this connection, it was wise to use a powerful flash unit such as the Metz mecablitz 58 AF-1 digital. It can also brighten parts of pictures distant from one another both effectively and extremely accurately. There are special camera-specific functions available for this purpose, depending on the version.
*EISA Award 2007/2008
Obtaining the lighting mood:
Thanks to modern flash controllers such as, for example, E-TTL, i-TTL, P-TTL, and ADI, the light output of Metz system flash units can be controlled by the camera. If the existing lighting mood is to be retained, it is important to use a shutter time that is longer than the flash synch time. For portraits, however, an exposure time of 1/60 second should not be exceeded.

For the ambitious
Top model with new fine tuning Even an award-winner can be made better. The best flash unit in Europe 2007/2008* has received a little more fine tuning. In order to carry on meeting the highest standards in quality, a high quality metal base** has been added which can be attached to the cameras flash shoe in one easy movement. Technically speaking, no wish is left unfulfilled. The innovative high performance unit boasts a USB interface through which specific firmware for each model variant can be conveniently updated via computer and Internet. It looks sleek, artfully meters flash and is both intuitive and impressively powerful. Equipped with new innovations, the Metz mecablitz 58 AF-2 digital offers cutting-edge secondary reflector technology, high performance energy management, multiple zone AF flash metering and a fully pivoting reflector system. The Metz top model works with all camera-specific system flash modes from Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Olympus/Panasonic or Sony Alpha cameras including their respective wireless TTL modes. If the camera has a built-in flash then the mecablitz 58 AF-2 digital can be employed wirelessly in the system, even in servo mode. Thanks to its high guide number, the 58 AF-2 digital is not only extremely powerful but can also be used effectively for bouncing flash. Metz has integrated a flip-out reflector card for its vertically tilting and horizontally swivelling reflector. Thanks to the integrated and system controlled secondary reflector, bouncing flash adds additional brilliance to close-ups.

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 criteria, 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.

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.
Backlighting makes interesting light effects possible, if you know how to use it correctly. A flash should be used in any case. With the flash output reduced by 1 or 2 f-stops, it is possible to retain the character of the existing light. The higher the guide number, the greater the range of the flash unit. However, when comparing, it is important to make sure that the same focal length and the same ISO specification are used.
Long exposure times
It is worth experimenting with exposure times that are longer than the flash sync speed. For moving objects, interesting blurring effects and a corresponding brightening of the foreground can be obtained in a range of approx. 1 second. By the way, the easiest way to extend the range of a flash unit is to increase the ISO setting on the camera. To be set at 1600 ISO instead of 100 thus quadrupling the range of the flash unit.

Small, but look out: This is an ideal complement for everyone who loves compactness and doesnt want to go without good flash photos. The smallest compact flash unit currently available from Metz is clearly more effective than the flash integrated into the camera. The mecablitz 20 C-2 with GN 20 at ISO 100/21 and 35 mm focal length is intended for all those who prefer a flash which will also fit into your jacket pocket. This small, chic model offers two automatic apertures. And the special key feature is the swivel reflector! LED displays on the back of the unit provide information about the flash readiness and also the correct exposure.

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 is increased by the self-learning servo mode and the smart EASY mode. For the very first time the flash result can be directly manipulated via the immediate correction buttons (+/-). Simply shoot, check the result on the camera screen and adjust straight away as required all at the touch of a button. Thanks to this servo model you can increase your flash power without any undesired side effects. The compact tool draws its power from either universally available alkaline micro batteries or equally competitive rechargeable micro batteries.

A 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 AF measurement flash, the decentralized AF sensors are supported in the process. Automatic unit switch-off During extended breaks from photographing, the flash unit is switched automatically to an energy-saving 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. Automatic flash mode A photo sensor integrated in the flash unit measures the subject during photographing, and automatically terminates the light output as soon as the subject is correctly exposed. B Buzzer Additional acoustic status messages can be activated for flash readiness, flash exposure control as well as warning tones. 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.
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. Metal stand High quality metal base for secure attachment on camera shoe.
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.
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
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.

close-up ranges which appear when using an indirect flash. Servo mode
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.
The servo mode allows you to operate the Metz flash unit of the corresponding camera system wirelessly with the built-in flash unit on the digital camera. Allows light output to be calibrated as partial lighting. Slave mode An integrated sensor makes this wireless slave flash mode possible in combination with a master or controller flash unit. (>>> Remote operation) Z Sony / 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. 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.
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.
Zoom size Automatic adaptation of the display of the reflector position of the flash unit to the picture-taking chips for digital cameras.
