Question about Rollei SCA 356 Flash
I have a Metz 145CL-4 flash with SCA 300 system, also a Rollei SCA 356 adapter. I wish to utilize the "Auto and TTL" features of the Metz with a Rolleiflex SL2000F SLR camera. The Rollei has no hot shoe, just a X sync. contact socket on the lens assembly. What do I need to be able to use the SCA 356.
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.
