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.

What do you mean with Adapter?
You know Metz makes a range of Speed lights, for a range of different camera brands. It is not only the hot shoe that looks different for most brands, also the firmware in the Speed light is different. So your camera should have the same protocol as the brand you bought your Mezt for.

The good news is. I use both Nikon and Metz Speed lights. My Metz is from my Canon days, but when using it remote, I can use it with my Nikon, on the flash trigger that my small Speed light on the camera fires. So the wireless (light) remote, is standard for most brands.

Just need to know if the following flashes can be used with the nikon d 3100 digital slr. 1) vivitar 285 hv 2) Metz 45cl 1


Both flashes have trigger voltages at the high end of the safe range for digital SLRs, according to the list at http://botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html

I wouldn't use either on my Nikon DLSR without something like the Wein Safe Sync:

I dropped my camera now the flash is broken,


yes of course, there are a lot of brands that compatible with Nikon D-60 e.g Nikon itself, Metz, Vivitar, Nissin, Yong Nuo, etc.

The flash with iTTL support would be an advantage

iTTL is the feature Nikon has to measure the perfect light produced from the flash from the condition of the object

hope this advice help you with your problem

Even older flash units from the same manufacturer can damage newer digital cameras. It's a matter of the trigger voltage. Older flashes can put a lot more juice through a digital camera than the camera can handle.

Since you neglected to specify the model of your Metz flash unit, I can only suggest you look it up here.

Can i use metz 45 ct 1 with pentax k 20 d digital slr camera


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.

External Flash for 3000Z


I have tried a couple of external flashes on the 3000Z. It is my understanding from reading various Internet posts (and I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong) that, other than triggering the flash to go off, there is no communication between the external flash in the hot shoe of the 3000Z and the 3000Z itself. Settings need to be made manually in the manual mode to set the f-stop and the aperture to get good exposures. The Metz flashes are expensive. Most have opted to use less expensive flashes such as the Vivitar 283/383, or a Sunpak, or even a "Wal-mart" flash. I chose an inexpensive bounce flash with a secondary "fill-in" flash to get rid of the shadows sometimes seen with indoor bounce flash pics. I purchased the Phoenix 82ZBDA Multi-dedicated twin flash from Porter's Photo Catalogue for $37.95. This flash works fine, but is not that powerful (GN 79 ). If you need a more powerful flash, you might consider the Vivitar 383.
