Also, it is possible to use exposure compensation to adjust the flash's output through the camera. Other options include acting as an auto fill-in flash as well as 1st and 2nd curtain sync modes. The flash runs on 2 AA batteries.

    Metz 24 AF-1 reviews

    mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital Flash for Sony Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Sony Alpha 7r with adapter I use this on a Sony alpha a7r with Nikon and Leica manual focus lenses (via those lens adapters). You have to get the Sony 'Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter' to go from this flash to the new Sony body. Flash works as expected in TTL mode; no exposure issues on Fill or Slow-sync mode settings on the camera. The flash sits very solidly on the camera despite the extra height of the flash adapter. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I have to coax the battery door a little bit to get the flash to come on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match I were looking for small and lightweight companion for my NEX-7. Options are limited - Sony HVL-F20AM, would work just fine but AAA and too small GN would not make it much better vs built-in. Let me confess - I am big fan of Metz Flashes, they Auto mode is so good. As result without a doubt I decided to go for 24AF-1. Even if it looks like Vivitar DF-183 or Polaroid PL-108AF - they are not the same! Litle bit different hardware (inside) and very different firmware. Externally, flash looks Metz 20C-2 , tilting head looks flimsy but it is solid enought to survive my multiple trips. IQ? Even if it's fully auto you still have some control - settings on camera (fill/slow sync), tilting and flash comp. In most simplistic way, straight shot - much better compare to build-in plus more power. Reflected from wall/ceiling - tricky but easy to master. From features, IQ and compactness it's really a perfect match to NEX-7 as travel flash. One impossible wish - 'HSS' :) But it's diffrent weight/size category.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Good price, works well, I just wanted a flash a little more powerful than the one built in without spending alot of money. If I use enough, may later buy a stronger one but for now, this one does well

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great flash great flash for the money... wish it had the updated hot shoe mount for sony a7
    Date published: 2014-03-12
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke during testing I only took a few test shots with this unit when it failed to power up after only a few trials. The test shots looked great, however, and it responded well to flash compensation which I have had trouble with other flashes. I will order another one and be sure to test it out thoroughly while I can return it if it fails again. It feels cheaply made and broke after only a few short uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Flash A question came up with regard to coverage of a 28mm lens. This flash head is in a fixed position. What tilts is the flash head itself. It will rotate up to 90 degrees while the actual flash unit stays in the same position. The best way to create a wide angle coverage is to use a light modifier attached to the back of the flash (such as the Vello--which is a flat, solid construction piece which is attached to the back of the flash by velcro). This allows the 90 degree position to bounce the light off the attached reflector and create a very wide angle of coverage. The flash unit is more than adequate in power to cover an area approximately 10 to 15 feet out from the shooter. Of course keeping the flash head in the 180 deg. position (as in the picture) will allow for greater distances. The nature of the construction will also allow for velcro attached modifiers to be placed on the flash for forward facing modification. The unit is totally controlled by the camera. There are no controls on the back other than on-off/a light to show whether your flash distance and coverage is OK, and a thunderbolt image to show the function flash. The camera will control the activity of the flash...keeping it on and turning your camera on or off will activate the flash. It is a great flash for travel and fits very well on an Olympus OM-D EM10 (small camera) and does not add that much weight.
