The Metz mecablitz 45CL-4 Digital TTL Handle Mount Flash Kit is a heavy-duty handle mount flash that supports even the advanced TTL systems used with Digital SLR cameras: E-TTL II flash mode from Canon, i-TTL/i-TTL-BL and D-TTL from Nikon or ADI flash control from Sony/Minolta.
The 45 series is the smallest amongst Metz handle-mount flashes that provide TTL capability. In conjunction with the SCA-3045 connection cable (included) and a dedicated SCA 3002 system module, this flash will fully support all advanced functions of the camera and/or flash (where supported by the camera).
This "digital kit", includes the SCA-3045 (MZ 53045) TTL cable, the high-power 45-57 NiMH Battery Cluster (MZ 53045), a matching Universal charger, a battery holder for dry cells (45-39), a wide angle diffuser (45-42) and a camera bracket (32-38). With the addition of a camera-specific dedicated TTL module, this set-up offers modern recharging technology with fully dedicated TTL flash control.
Lots of features are packed into a compact flash for its class, such as an auxiliary fill-flash light, bounce and swivel capacity, wide-angle diffuser and more.
