Question about Metz 45 CL-1 Flash
I have a NIKON D60 CAMERA do METZ 45CL-1 WORK WITH A wireless flash trigger,which wireless flash trigger,how to connect it
Using a remote trigger designed for digital cameras makes it safe to use with your D60 as the trigger unit applaied to D60 will be a low voltage.
Most remote triggers should withstand the Metz trigger voltage, although there might be some that wont. You could always add a safety adapter between flash and trigger, but it is unlikely to be needed to protect the trigger.
Directly off your camera the voltage from the Flash is higher than that allowed by Canon, so it could damage your D60 unless you add a safety adapter in between. The adapters are available from wein and other vendors.

Hi, Bad news for you.
Posted on Mar 14, 2009
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.
