    Metz M400 reviews

    mecablitz M400 Flash for Fujifilm Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from highly recommended This works perfectly on Fuji X-T2 after upgrading to FW 1.1. HSS and TTL works flawlessly and the exposure is correct up to 1/8000 shutter speed. Almost no compensation is needed in most situations. The build quality is excellent. Though it is made of plastic, no cheap feeling at all. The size is perfect for traveling, but may be a little small otherwise. It may drain 4 AA batteries for 150 shots. The battery door is a bit tricky to close. Adjusting the flash compensation using up and down arrow is a bit laggy, just as changing every other menu items. All in all, this is highly recommended for its price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bravo Metz! A half-price alternative to the newest Fuji TTL flash unit. Initial impressions are very good. Build quality is excellent. Metal flash shoe a plus. Flash head rotation and angle movements work well. Bounce card and wide angle diffuser do their job. All functions work as they should, and the electronic display on the back of the flash is the best I have seen. Simple and intuitive, bright and easy to read. Camera electronic information connection is excellent. Zoom feature works perfectly with my Fuji X lenses. TTL exposures right on the money. Exposure compensation is fast and correct. Recycle time is quick, and battery life adequate. The jury is still out on long-term function and reliability, but at this moment, I believe this little, very compact flash is just what many Fuji users have been looking for in an easy to use TTL flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well integrated and HSS First thing you need to do is upgrade the firmware at the Metz site. Once this is done, this is a great portable flash unit. Consistent output and plenty of power combined with HSS for Fuji! At least on the X Pro 2. HSS is automatic once you go beyond the camera's flash sync speed, and the flash is controlled by the camera Q menu in TTL mode. You can switch to manual flash from the Q menu, but then output is adjusted via the flash itself. Other features of the integration, if you're shooting in Mechanical/Electronic shutter mode, and you activate the TTL flash mode in the Q menu, it automatically switches to mechanical only. If you turn off the flash output via the Q menu, it goes back to the original setting allowing 1/32000 SS. Very nice. The unit itself seems fairly well built, but not a pro grade Nikon flash. Better than the Nisan IMO.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice flash Nice flash. Very easy to use on my Fuji X-T2. The battery compartment door is a bit odd. I hope it will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good travel flash I got this Metz flash due to its size comparison to the Nissin i40-i60a. I will mainly use this as a basic walk around flash but it would be nice to add HSS via firmware and it has the ability due to the added port. I just wish it at least came with a soft box but it didn't.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hss doesn't work High Speed Sync doesn't work with fuji XE2. I updated firmware to the current 1.1 version on Metz flash but it doesn't matter. HSS doesn't function on Fuji XE2. I already have old fuji TTL flashes that work perfectly with my camera, I only needed HSS and while it was advertised as to have it-it clearly doesn't.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More compact but as handy as the EF-X500 Great little flash, but firmware update process is lacking.
