Metz 24 AF-1 overview

  • 1Description

The mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital Flash for Pentax Cameras from Metz is a compact shoe-mounted flash unit that is Pentax P-TTL compatible. This allows it to accurately and quickly determine exposure automatically. Additionally, the main reflector can be tilted up to +90° for more control over your lighting design.

The flash runs on 2 AA batteries.

    Metz 24 AF-1 reviews

    mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital Flash for Pentax Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent for travel Bought this to have something smaller/ligher than the Pentax 360 for travel, and also something with a better battery compartment cover. The unit is more powerful than expected. During tests, it easily illuminated a wall 20+ feet away at f8. It's PTTL only, no switch to manual, and no partial settings, but that can be done through the K5 body. With no tilt, I was able to get correct illumination for macro shots with the flash on hotshoe and subject 6 inches in front of the lens. On a bracket connected with a TTL cord and the flash pointed down, it was necessary to adjust the output about -1.5 stops to get correct close-up illumination. Overall, a nice solid, powerful, simple little flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Little Flash! I already own a Metz 50 AF-1 but bought the 24 for my travel kit (Pentax K-r + Pentax 35mm f/2.4 + Metz 24). The Metz 50 is almost as large/heavy as the K-r body alone, it's okay to use with a 17-70 zoom plus Hama flash grip + TTL cord. But with just a tiny 35/2.4 lens, this Metz 24 sits on my K-r with great balance, suited to lightweight on-the-go situations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact TTL Fill Flash This flash works well as fill flash and is very compact. Don't expect it to light up a large room or provide wide angle lens coverage, but all in all its a well made efficient flash for its size with good tradeoffs, such as sacrificing wide angle for crisp normal coverage. A couple unexpected issues were since it's TTL only it cannot trigger optical slaves due to its preflash, and mounting regular size softboxes covers the AF assist light, however I found a small Vello FD-300 softbox that can be positioned such that it doesn't have this issue. Overall its a good flash given these constraints.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Metz 24AF-1 Digital Flash A must have product for Pentax when shooting in low light conditions, Very nicely build up quality, light weight and preformance wise no complain at all as long as you can judge the light condition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot better flash than the 'built-in' Took some test shots with the Metz 24AF-1 and the results seemed to have a lot better flesh-tones than with the 'built-in' flash. Love that you can bounce the flash off the ceiling.
