The mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital Flash from Metz is a shoe mount flash, with an illuminated rear touchscreen, designed to be compatible with Canon cameras featuring E-TTL / E-TTL II. 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 Canon camera's E-TTL / E-TTL II 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.
