The Mecablitz 52 AF-1 TTL Touchscreen Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax/Samsung DSLRs from Metz is a shoe mount flash, with an illuminated rear touchscreen, designed to be compatible with both current and future models of digital Pentax/Samsung SLR cameras. To better facilitate this compatibility with current and future cameras, this flash features a built-in USB port that allows for future firmware updates via the internet. A high quality metal base allows quick and easy attachment to the camera.
The 52 AF-1 is designed to fully support a Pentax/Samsung digital SLR camera's TTL system. It can be operated as a TTL slave unit that can be controlled by the camera's own built-in commander mode or as a manufacturer's flash with master capabilities.
The flash also features an auto zoom head from 24-105mm that can be set to match the camera's sensor, a full bounce and swivel head (with a fully swiveling reflector system which also contains a flip-out reflector card and a diffuser), a built-in wide angle diffuser for 12mm coverage, and in addition, full manual control with 12 variable power output levels.
- Fully compatible with current and future digital Pentax/Samsung cameras, updatable via USB port
- High-speed flash synchronization allows flash to be used with any shutter speed (only with appropriate camera bodies)
- It is very easy to operate the 52 AF-1 via its illuminated graphic display by directly touching the display indicators. For portrait shots, the display thinks with you and rotates the touchscreen display by 90°
- Wireless full TTL triggering via a camera or flash with commander/master mode
- Autozooming head can cover from 24 to 105mm, and 12mm when used with the included wide-angle diffuser
