    Metz 26AF-1 reviews

    mecablitz 26 AF-1 digital Flash for Fujifilm Cameras is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small - But not perfect I haven't used this on the streets yet, but I did some testing and there is some compromise to make this small. There is a wide angle diffuser included (too small for an internal zoom function), but when flashed onto a blank wall the Fresnel lens projects lines. I ended up sanding off the Fresnel pattern and frosted the diffuser. No more lines, but there is a hot spot - but that was there before. This uses AAA batteries, which means I need to invest in a different size rechargeable battery. The battery door is a little sketchy. The TTL is good, but the flash compensation on my Fuji X-E2s doesn't seem to change the exposure like it does with the on-board flash. Maybe that's normal, I'm not sure.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slave Mode Not Implemented. Slave mode for Fujifilm cameras has not been implemented in the firmware, yet. I had to return the pair I bought. Otherwise, I like this flash.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Product This is a small, but powerful unit. There is enough candlepower to bounce flash in a small or medium sized room. Unfortunately, if you are shooting in a portrait orientation, the flash doesn't rotate for that orientation. For my Fuji camera, exposures are on the money. I can't tell about battery usage yet. I've only had the flash a week. But, I figure the AAA batteries will need changing often. May go to rechargeables.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Flash While I wish this flash just stood straight and didn't need to be bent over on an angle for normal use, it's a lightweight, competent, compact flash. The head sits just high enough to clear the front of my 16mm f/1.4 mounted on my�X-E3 (which the smaller Fuji flashes that you'd want to use with a rangefinder don't). I like the 26 AF-1's metal foot and the controls' ease of operation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flash for Fuji review. The flash is compact and works well. I like that it can be tilted upward for a bounce effect. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but powerful This fits in your pocket but produces good, bright bursts. There's sometimes a lag in recycle time but otherwise reliable.
