question

Using the grid on the back of the flash, how do you set your camera? It is not intuitive.
Asked by: Michael
Customizing the settings of a camera and flash are very situational and impossible to predict from here. As far as how to use the flash, many free online tutorials would be able to show you how to do that better than we could write out in Q&A. We cannot troubleshoot and provide tutorial information here. Optionally, you could also contact the manufacturer for help in using their product, via phone: 905-477-4111 or email: [email protected]

question

Does this flash have a trigger voltage of 6 volts or less to safely use on an Olympus OMD-E-M1?
Asked by: Harold
I believe all the flashes made within the last ten years (at least, but maybe longer) are low voltage triggered. The dslr's cannot handle the older higher voltage triggers. But, check with Metz, they are pretty good techies.

Would this flash be a good choice for a vintage Canon Canonet GIII QL17? I purchased this camera on ebay but it came without the flash. Thank you
