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.

SOURCE: AC Power Supply for Metz 45 ct5

Hi daf4,

I have a circuit diagram for the 45CT-5 and the flash unit as well. The voltage is 360V DC, which goes straight across the flash tube. The top pin is positive, when the notch in the socket is on the right hand side, i.e. towards the back of the flash.

I'm also looking for a circuit diagram for a 45CL-4, if you know anyone who has one.

Regards,

Neil

Check the polarity of the batteries.
With the batteries removed you will be able to see small
+ and - alongside each of the six connectors. Make sure the +
of the battery connects with the + connector. Similarly check the -
connections. With the batteries inserted (but without the plastic cap being fitted) you should see the ends of the batteries. Three positive ends (all in a row) and three negative ends.
If one, or more, has been inserted with the polarity reversed it will stop the flash from working.
It can also cause the handle to overheat.

SOURCE: I have a metz 45 ct-5 with normal aa alkaline

Hi Liam,

First turn on flash.
Short out center pin to outside ring of PC, this will fire the flash.

SOURCE: I HAVE NIKON D1X CAMERA AND METZ 45CL4 FALSHGUN.

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)!

If your Metz is for Nikon it will not work in TTL on Cannons. Metz makes different flashes for Nikon and Cannon. I have a Metz 54 that I use with my Nikon D200 and it works as well or better than the NIkon SB800 in TTL.

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.

Connection to Rolleiflex SL2000F SLR


I checked out a SL2000F that had good pictures on eBay. I see a standard hot shoe on the side of the camera. That being said, neither a standard shoe connection nor a pc outlet will give you TTL on the Metz. TTL is Transistor to transistor logic (or for camera store people, through the lens) A sensor that reads the light from the actual plane of the shutter is required to allow the Metz to give TTL operation. It will work on the Auto setting, but the Rollei does not have the sensor as described.

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.

METZ 60 CT-4 batteries and capacitors


Although you can still get lead acid batteries from Sonnenschein (the original oem manufacturer) for the Metz CT60 units, a better choice are the Lithium ferrite phosphate or Lithium ion batteries, now available on ebay. For example sales8phd on ebay sells a drop in replacement 6 or 7Ah battery with a charger for ~$75. In general these batteries produce more flashes per charge than the lead acid oem batteries,particularly when shooting a lot of flashes in rapid sucession.
