The Metz 44 AF-1 mecablitz Digital Flash for Canon Camera provides advanced flash technology in a slim design and at an affordable price. This flash offers straightforward performance with all controls intuitively arranged on the back panel. With a maximum guide number 44 for ISO 100/21° and 105mm, this flash delivers the power needed in various lighting conditions in TTL mode.

Among its controls is the ability to set 4 partial light levels according to a particular lighting scenario. The photographer also has the ability, depending on the camera, to synchronize to the first or second shutter curtain for greater flexibility in the lighting process.

This flash also offers a slave mode which, depending on the camera, makes it possible to perform wireless TTL flash operation. Other flash enhancing controls include a motor zoom function (24-105mm), a fully swiveling reflector with flip-out reflector card, and an integrated wide-angle diffuser (12mm). A USB port enables firmware updates for future compatibility.

      Works great both on the hot shoe & as an off-camera slave.
      Slightly on the heavy side but it's well worth it for the low cost.

        Comments about Metz 44 AF-1 mecablitz Digital Flash for Canon Camera:

        Bought this flash for my Canon 5D MKII. Seemed like a less expensive alternative to the Canon 430 II. Was I wrong. The in camera menu was partially disabled. Some times it gave the correct exposures but mostly it did not. I returned for credit and got the canon flash. What a difference!
