The trigger voltage of Metz 45-CT1 Ser No above 534 000 are under7V, that is absolutely safe. But below this Ser No that can be anywhere around 200. This not necessarily means the flash will damage the camera, but consult the user's manual.
If you were intended to ask how to connect the flash to the K20 D, then you can use a hotshoe-to-PC adapter.

To use Metz 45CL-1 with Nikon D5100, you need use in apperture priority mode (A), adjust same ISO and apperture in Flash and Camera (Ex: ISO400 and F: 5.6) . The flash adjust light intensity to mantain correct exposition. You need use an adapter to conect Sync cable in your camera.

Can I connect a METZ 45 CL-1 to my CANON D600


Yes, this is the way the flash can be used with the contemporary digital cameras. The camera has to be set to Full Manual mode (in point of the exposition), Exposure Time to 1/100 sec (or the shortest exposure that still assures full opening of the shutter). Aperture on the camera must suit the working aperture on the flash, also ISO speeds must match. The computer in the flash measures the reflected from the subject light and quenches the flash, creating the correct exposure. Mecamat sensor, having narrower reception angle and a sight, helps in achieving the correct illumination even on a relatively small subject. Sync voltage of Metz 45CL1 does not make harm to any digital camera, so you can use even the cheapest hotshoe-to-PC adapter available at many camera shops or you can buy one online. No need to spend much on sophisticated adapters.

Ttl connection to a metz 60ct4 or 45 ct-5


You have to use a special cable adapter for each type of camera.
These old flash units do not have adapters for current digital cameras. For old cameras the only place to get the adapters, is on ebay or from KEH.

Metz 45 CT-1 Outup Calibration


During the flash impulse the "photocell", actually a phototransistor, charges a capacitor with current, proportional to the reflected light intensity. As soon as the voltage on that capacitor reaches the trigger voltage of a four-layer diode (which, in fact, is playing a role of a PUT) that turns on and triggers the quench thyristor. There is a trimmer potentiometer in the four-layer diode circuitry, which sets the trigger voltage. You can try to fiddling with that. But the culprit of the misalignment easily can be in any of the parts in the above described circuitry.

Metz mecablitz 45 ct 1 and Nikon D-90


The trigger voltage of the 45CL-1 is about 12V, so it should be safe to connect directly to the hot shoe with an adaptor, or to the pc soclet, if the D90 has one. If the D90 is anything like my Canon 40D, which can stand about 30V on the hot shoe, then all the 45CL series will be ok, as they have trigger voltages between 9V and 12V. The 45CT-5 has a trigger voltage of 15V and works well on the 40D. I use 3 different Metz 45 models with my 40D and all work well on automatic, where the flash sensor itself controls the light output.

Metz 45 CT 1


I had that same problem also, but mines was temporarly. Ik think the condensor inside the Metz has to regeneratie (recover) itself by using with a full charged fresh batteries. The high freq. sound is normal. (although not to loud) after a 5 MINUTES the orange bulb should light up. How more u used how better the start-up time. My old Metz start-up time was around 40 sec. and now ot is within 7 sec.
