    Metz 64 AF-1 reviews

    mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital Flash for Sony Cameras is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy this again happily. Lovely strong powerful flash. it can do it all. Most modern Flash units now come with integrated Radio. This unit is not one of those. For this I would downrate to 4 stars. However the unit is backed by the reliability of Metz which has never failed me and for that it keeps its 5 star rating for me. The touch screen is a neat feature. Metz really attempts to simplify the UI for its users however they sometimes forget that having a button for everything is sometimes faster. So because of this i was initially hesitant, however the unit's easy to use UI helps make up for it. Overall everything works as stated. I am pleased.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Incompatible error message keeps showing I'd give this one star but when it works, it works well. So it's 2 stars.The show-stopper is that when mounted onto the Sony a6000, you will constantly see an error message on the live view. The error message is the camera complaining that this accessory is not compatible.Despite using a blower to clean the hotshoe and the flash contacts, the error will come back shortly.I tried bringing it in for repairs while it was under warranty but was told this is expected behaviour when used on Sony cameras as the hotshoe is flimsy. Huh?I have since learnt my lesson and have concluded that this is a design flaw. Will never buy from them again.But when it works, the TTL is accurate and you get nice pictures.I'd like to add that at no time does this error message show up when I plug in my old Nikon SB-600 flash onto the a6000 hotshoe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash and easy to use The flash is very easy to use. The touch screen interface can be learned quickly. It is easy to adjust to get just the right amount of light. Works great with the Sony a7r.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK Flash, when it wasn't broken. Got this flash in the fall of 2015. Used it for 2 weddings before it broke and has been in warranty service for over 3 months now. After contacting both Metz (manfroto) and their repair center (C.R.I.S) they have no ETA on when the parts will arrive to repair the unit. When it did work it was an OK unit at best. It has power but overheats pretty easily. My old Canon 430EX II was way better than this flash. The bottomline is that the price doesn't reflect the performance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than the 52 I purchased this cause I needed a flash that puts out more light than the model 52. This one didn't disappoint. However, there are a few things I still don't like. I thought the shoe was's still plastic like the 52 model. Another minor annoyance. To turn the unit off you have to hold the button down for a few seconds instead of just pressing the button once. When you're in a hurry, it is annoying.
