Question about Camera Flashes

Metz flash gun

I don't think they make this model any more, but it looks very smilier to the 45 CL-1. My problem was that duty cycle was taking so long to charge up, so i replaced the capacitor, supplied from a Metz dealer but now i can only here a faint electric charging noise from the capacitor with no sustained electrolytic charge at all....does any one know what the problem is?

How can I use Metz 45 CL-1 with Nikon D3000 and what should be my setting on Flash and on Camera


First you need a hotshoe adapter to connect flash Sync cable to camera. You have to pay your attention about the following settings. Set the same ISO speed on flash gun and camera.( 100 or 200) White balance to Auto or Flash on camera. Mode dial to M (manual) and shutter speed to 1/200 or slower on camera. Aperture setting to 5.6 or 8 (both on camera and on flash) Now take some trial photos and check on the LCD display and histogram and do fine tuning to your exposure. Change the aperture value on camera to control the exposure of flash as well as the ambient light Change the shutter speed to control the exposure of ambient light. (!/200 or slower speed) I hope you got the solution to your problem. I also have the same set of equipments to do my photography.

Raise the tiltable head the number is embossed below it(at chin side).Near hinge.

How can I match Metz 45 CL-1 with Nikon D-80


Try to keep the Flash setting on ISO-setting of 100 constant and adjust your aperture setting on the flash..Do not try to sync with the camera settings..it will normally work...for example.if your camera setting is as this: ISO-400, shutter speed is 125 and aperture is F8, then keep the flash setting as i mentioned above.this setting in an evening environment in a hotel or party event. this may help...

METZ 45 CT 5 S O S


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.

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

Metz 45 CT 1


I had that same problem also, but mines was temporarly. Ik think the condensor inside the Metz has to regeneratie (recover) itself by using with a full charged fresh batteries. The high freq. sound is normal. (although not to loud) after a 5 MINUTES the orange bulb should light up. How more u used how better the start-up time. My old Metz start-up time was around 40 sec. and now ot is within 7 sec.
