The Metzmecablitz 50 AF-1 digital Flash is a Metz shoe mount flash designed to be compatible with all digital Olympus, Panasonic, and Leica cameras, both current and future models. To better facilitate compatibility with current and future cameras, this flash now 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 50 AF-1 is designed to fully support an Olympus, Panasonic, or Leica digital SLR camera's TTL system. Both Four Thirds TTL flash mode and Four Thirds TTL remote mode (slave and servo mode) are possible. 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, and a built-in wide angle diffuser for 18mm coverage.
