Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

1 Answer

I have a Samsung Pro815 and a Metz CT1 Flash

I cannot find an adapter to fit the hotshoe to make it compatable.  As you know The Metz is a cracking flash as I have used it for years on my 35mm camera with excellent results.  I would like to use it with my Samsung as I am going over to digital photography.
Many thanks in anticipation

I believe the Metz does not have a hotshoe, does it?
You should be able to buy a hotshoe adapter with a pc socket and direct the Metz PC cord to the hotshoe adapter. These are very common peices and can be purchased in most any camera store.

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.

Metz flash sony nex camera


Sony NEX 6 has an ATG/Sony's Multi-Interface-Shoe.

Let's hope the Metz 58AF-2 Flash is made for Sony/Minolta, which has an old Minolta's hotshoe.

Contact Sony for the adapter.
Or just buy the Promaster Sony Multi-Ineterface Shoe Adapter, it less than Sony's.

Metz 45 cl-1 speed light & nikon d60


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.

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!?

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.

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.

Mecablitz76 MZ5 remote


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

Flash


You can't take off the attached flash. The camera body flash should not fire when you have a flash attached to the hotshoe on the camera. I don't know what kind of flash you are using, since you never said but I use Sunpak and Metz flashes. You can see if your flash is compatible with the N-65. If not, then you should look for one that is. Ritz sells Quantary flash units that have modules for Nikon cameras. They are great flashes for the money.
