Question about Metz 45 CL-1 Flash

Metz mecablitz 45 ct 1 and Nikon D-90

Need to cross the two so the flash will mate with the camera. The Metz is "older" and doesn't have the electronics to go with the Nikon.

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.

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.

Not sure what i need to use the mecablitz 60 ct-4 w/ my Nikon d-100


I just bought a D100 (as a backup to a D200 - nothing like being up to date with current technology! B^)). As I understand it, there is no integral flash sync connector on them. You need to get an AS-15 accessory shoe adaptor which goes on the hot shoe, and has a pc sync connector (like the D200 has on the side of the main body). Then you use a standard Metz sync cable to attach to that. The Metz 60 CT flashes have a low voltage trigger circuit and so should be safe with any camera.

Which adapter do Ineed to connect my nikon d90 with metz 45 cl-4 (non digital )


What do you mean by adaptor?! You will need to by a hotshoe adaptor with a hole that talkes the old style cable plug from your Metz lead and away you go! Try jessops. (As long as you have the lead from your Metz!?

Im not sure that you can get full TTL with this analogue flash. If you can then SC300 should be OK. (I have the Nikon D80 and TTL is not possible with metzcl4 but who needs it)!

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.
