Won't flash I Have a Metz 70-mz5 flash that I am using with a canaon d10 digital cameral. I used it for a wedding and it fired ok for a while, then stopped and will not fire anymore. It charges, the lights come upt to 100 % on the battery. I also have the smaller batteries and it will not fire on either of those. Any Ideas?

Try to short out the contact pin of PC cable with a flat bladed screwdriver. This must set the flashtube off (flash), if not cable if defective.

    Try to short out the PC cable's Center pin to outside contact. This should fire the flash.
    If not, your cable is defective.

I've mislaid my manual for my Metz 54. I haven't used it for a while and can't remember how I set the thing to shoot in ttl with my Fuji S6 Pro. When I'm in ttl mode on the flash the camera doesn't fire....


Not sure what S6 pro is, but if the flash doesn't fire in TTL then the flash is not support the type of TTL in the camera. I had the same problem with Nikon flashes on Nikon bodies. Perhaps you need a newer SCA adapter? Please go on http://www.metz.de/en/photo-electronics/sca-adapter/archive.html to check which adapter you need

If the shoe of the flash is compatible with the hot shoe of the camera then yes go for it. Should the flash shoe be different then the flash will still work but with a shoe adapter. Both are TTL so I see no reasons why they won't work. I do know of a friend who uses the Nikon with the same flash but it has the battery pack fitting and uses an adapter on the camera's hot shoe. He does weddings galore and never had a problem even though he carries a spare he has never used it.

If you are using Pocket wizard you attach a hotshoe to pocket wizard adapter to the unit that usually fits on your camera hotshoe and attach this unit as usual to the 76mz5. There are various brackets that can secure and tidy the whole thing but you can manage without them if you wish. I got the paramount hotshoe to pocket wizard mini jack to do this £35 each from TFC and the bracket to fit the 76 MZ5 to a stroboframe bracket from speedgraphics at £17 and a one to fit the TTL controller to the 76mz 5 keeping it all tidy in all it cost £67 but makes a neet little unit that can be mounted on a stand and if you want to spend another £25 you can even attach a brolly. Great as a studio flash unit

Mating Metz 60CT4 to Nikon D80 camera


The 60CT-4 was not made for digital cameras.
It does TTL on film not on CMOS or CCD sensor.
