Product Highlights
  • Universal Swiveling Flash Head

The Metz Mecablitz 45 Series CL-1-N with a Guide No.45' at ISO 100, delivers powerful light output and simple handling. It features a swivel / tilt single flash head, an easy-to-read analog control display with five tele-computer apertures, a wide-angle diffuser, and is comfortable to handhold. This high-performance flash is primarily designed for camera models that don't support TTL operation.

It delivers valuable flash-to-lens separation distance and shooting in either the vertical or horizontal position allows light to always be above and to the side of the lens' center.

This flash is built to withstand years of harsh use and abuse, and is equipped with an NiMH battery for long life and a short recycling time of 0.3 seconds.

Note! For cameras with a hot shoe, the synch cable #45-54 (optional accessory) is required.
