Mating Metz 60CT4 to Nikon D80 camera

Purchased Metz 3402 dedicated module and SCA 3000C cord to use with the D80,but they didn't work.It was like the camera didn't know the flash was there.System works fine with Nikon SB-600 flash,so camera must be OK. Do you have any suggestions on how to get the Metz to work TTL with the D80?

    I have the same problem as you on the D80 it will not read anything and i was expecting a flash symbol to show up on the LCD as i have a D2xs and my SB800 is not enough punch sometimes at weddings or shooting into the sun.
    I got a 60CT4 after reading articles on them and come across this page which says using the right connectors you can still use a 60 CT4 on digital.
    If i cannot use it on digital is it safe to put them through the sync plug on the side of the camera or use the hotshoe as a fire and use it in manual mode or is there voltage problems somewhere ?

    Thanks Grant

The 60CT-4 was not made for digital cameras.
It does TTL on film not on CMOS or CCD sensor.

Metz 60-4 flash takes much longer than normal for the ready light to come on to allow me to take another photo.

It is likely the capacitor in the battery pack. If they are not powered up every month, they dry out resulting in long power up and recycle times. You'll need to get it replaced to rejuvenate your 60 CT-4 to its original spec.

Many electronics for analog (film) cameras will not work with digital. It is a huge frustration for me. See -- You may have acceptable performance if you put the flash in "A" mode....Dave
