    Metz 26AF-1 reviews

    mecablitz 26 AF-1 digital Flash for Nikon Cameras is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite as expected Although the description said that it had a slave mode, it is actually I-ttl or Nikon command mode. This makes it more useful than my Nikon SB-400 but I bought this to use with a Nikon 1 as a pure slave for fill and macro work off camera. The Nikon 1 doesn't have CLS and this won't work like a dumb slave (SU-4 mode). I do think it is superior to the SB-300 or 400 however. A good little flash but not quite as expected.
