        Comments about Metz SCA 3102 Dedicated Module for Canon EOS E-TTL:

        I now use a 5D Mark II - 1DS Mark II and the Canon 1D Mark II N. The module I have is the M5 version.

        Metz states that the Canon EOS 1D Mark II N does not work with the 3102 SCA module and one should only use the 301 module in Auto or Manual mode.

        Although this module does NOT perform ETTL with the 1D Mark II N I have used the module in TTL mode and it has worked fine.

          I have been a Metz fan for over 20 years... Started using them with film cameras and moved over with them to digital... Before you order this piece, check it for compatibility........ My 5DIII and my 45CL-4 have not been on speaking terms since the 5DIII arrived - all Canon bodies since the 5DIII need the "M6" version - due out in September of 2013...

            Comments about Metz SCA 3102 Dedicated Module for Canon EOS E-TTL:

            Works on a Canon 5D mkII and a Metz 76-mz5.
            Needs no separate batteries and uses the power from the Metz battery. Fits onto the bottom of the Metz controller unit and slides into the Canon hot shoe.
            With this module, the Canon/Metz combo gives you 3 options in the Canon Menu:
            1. ETTL- Evaluative. Not so useful in my experience. Almost always underexposes.
            2. ETTL- Average. Better than Evaluative. You can use the Flash Exposure Compensation in the Canon Menu to add/subtract exposure in 1/3 increments.
            3. Auto. This is a Metz Auto-sensor setting, which utilizes the sensor in the Metz Controller that sits in the Canon hot shoe. Works pretty well actually, though using the Controller EV compensation to add/subtract is a little clumsier than the Canon Menu.
            This module allows the use of off-camera hot shoe attachments, such as a mini-phone-to-hot-shoe attachment for a PocketWizard radio trigger.

                I was able to purchase the new Metz 76 MZ-5 Flash and this little module links the Flash with my Canon 5DMk2. Works very well and also works with linking to older Canon Cameras.B&H is also very efficient in getting you their product very quickly. Looking forward to doing more business with them in the future.Gerald

                            Comments about Metz SCA 3102 Dedicated Module for Canon EOS E-TTL:

                            I bought the Metz 54-MZ-4 to use on a Canon film SLR. This module makes the Metz flash work exactly like a Canon flash. I'm very happy with its compatibility with the E-TTL system in my camera. I tested it with a variety of shots and settings and found that it worked with multiple modes of the camera just as you would expect a Canon flash to. I feel that this is both a better flash and a better deal than Canon's models. A big reason for choosing this combination is the upgradability of the combination by swapping this module for another. I couldn't be happier that such an expensive item as this Metz flash is made for such upgrades. [...]I'm very happy for now with this module, and very satisfied that Metz handles the dedication this way as I'm sure to upgrade later.

                            Does what it says on the tin. Makes E-TTL work seamless and retains full Canon EOS functionality. I just wish the display was visible from the back of the camera instead of the top down view. When the camera is mounted on a tripod at eye level, the display is invisible so everything has to be done via the camera but some functions can only be changed via the module. Surely Metz could make it swivel 90 degrees to point upwards making the display more accessible. And the display doesn't automatically light up when its dark either. It only illuminates when you touch a button.

                              Comments about Metz SCA 3102 Dedicated Module for Canon EOS E-TTL:

                              My 54MZ-4 flash works well with my Canon 40D and 30
                              D, but it has SCA 3102 M2 adapter. I really need SCA 3102 M4 to have the flash work perfectly with TTL-II setup of my 40D. M number is printed under "SCA 3102" on the adapter, and it can be M, M2, M3 or M4, M4 being the newest updated version. I did not know about M version differences until I asked Metz if my 54MZ-4 is working with my 40D's ETTL-II. Metz says M4 is made to use with TTL-II.

                              You need to find out what M number is before you buy 3102 adapter. I am trying to get Metz to upgrade mine to M4. Even if they gives me a free upgrade, I will still have to send my adapter (to Germany or England?) into Metz first, and the trasaction will take time.

                                In fact this is the second time. I replaced it because somehow I managed to break the first one by bad packing it during a flight.
                                It's a must have.

                                It was great to utilize my old Metz potato masher
                                flash gun with the new generation of Canon EOS Digital Cameras. I used it as my secondary setup and works fine if you ride the Aperture Priority in Auto.
                                The only drawback is my Metz 45-CL4 is not TTL
                                compatible but, it's still great to use equipment you've already paid for.
