    Metz 64 AF-1 reviews

    mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital Flash for Nikon Cameras is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flash with firmware upgrade I had problems with this flash overheating. I tested it against the Nikon SB900 and it shut down in half the time. I upgraded to the latest firmware and all is well now! I really like the power and the control it gives. Exposure is always perfect on my D750. It works well as an off camera flash too. A great option for Nikon.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Speedlight Powerful & packed full of all features. Compatible with Nikon CLS. The touchscreen is fairly intuitive albeit a little slow on the responsiveness. I am very happy with the high GN over the SB-910.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I do like Metz equipment This is the first flash I have purchased in over 20 years. My old Metz just kept working. While I am still learning it has done the job admirably so far. I shoot race cars at night. It is powerful enough to light up the dark side of the cars that are going by at 140 mph. Lighter than my old one, It helps when panning the shot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Flash This is the first flash I've had that was designed to work with my DSLR--previously, I made due with some older flashes that could not take advantage of Nikon's iTTL, and thought they were doing a pretty good job. Boy, I had no idea what I was missing out on!When hearing about the rebate on the Metz flashes, I decided to look into getting a modern flash unit. My concerns primarily revolved around guide number (I wanted to at least match my old Vivitar's GN of 157' @ ISO100), a zoom head (manual would have been fine), a rotateable head, and the ability to use common batteries such as AA NIMHs. Bonus features would include remote operation via flash detect, fast cycle time, and adjustable flash duration (i.e. reduced power at shorter sync speed).The Metz 64 met all of the requirements and more. Once I received it, of course I immediately tried it out. The photos I was able to take with a minimum amount of effort were far superior to what I was able to do previously; in particular the bounce flash + secondary fill flash feature worked incredibly well. While I haven't used it much in the short time I've had it so far, I expect I will never go back to the old units except as potential remotes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Flash, but poor power button placement I like the flash. But be warned: the power buttons is easy to turn on by accident especially when placed in a camera bag. I got to a shoot, and the batteries on two units were dead. Of course I keep spares, but this is unacceptable. I am trying to rig something up to prevent this that is not obnoxious. Even now that I am aware of it and have oriented them (2) in the camera bag in such a way I thought they were OK, they still came on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed Just received this flash yesterday, and I've been using it non-stop. The TTL seems dead accurate, it has plenty of power, and loads of functions and capability not found on any other flash Any professional should own this. I'll be shooting 3 evens this weekend, and I'll really test it out. But so far, it's excellent.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I wanted to like this flash very badly as I was looking for more power than my Nikon SB-910 as well as the integrated fill-in flash. I bought the Metz from B&H when it first came out and returned it because of vignetting on the bottom side of the frame when the camera is mounted on a rotating bracket with the flash mounted above on a crossbar, and a wide angle vertical-orientation exposure is made. Using the built-in wide angle diffuser takes care of the bottom vignetting, but this wasn't a problem with the Nikon flash that it was to replace. The other problem was that it heated up and shut down more quickly and frequently than the SB-910 when being fired in a rapid sequence. So I guess I'll just stick with what I have and hope that Nikon eventually comes out with a more powerful unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Flash I have just started to play with this flash. I have only used it on the camera itself. I have the TT5 cable and have used it a couple times with great results. I have not had an opportunity to give this flash a more in depth testing yet, but what I have seen so far is excellent.
