The mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital Flash from Metz is a shoe mount flash, with an illuminated rear touchscreen, designed to be compatible with Olympus / Panasonic / Leica cameras featuring Four Thirds TTL. This flash also has a high guide number of 170' at ISO 100 and 105mm as well as 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 Olympus / Panasonic / Leica camera's Four Thirds 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 master itself.

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 from 1/1 to 1/128 power in 1/3 steps.
