Question about Metz 60CT-1 Flash

Open Question

Using my metz 60CT-2 with a Kodak EasyShare digital camera.

The digital camera has the proper flash port and the Metz flashes fine but does not seem to change how the photo appears at all. I take the shot with and without the Metz and with and without using the built-in flash on the camera. Does the camera have an adjustable asa would this make a difference. I was hoping to extend the range of the camera in flash mode because the built-in flash is not strong enough. The Kodak is a DX6490.

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

SOURCE: Metz Flash Power?

Hi Tom,

The battery is Metz Accu 60-38 4.5Ah at 6VDC
VRLA Battery 100 20 4010


Any Pb battery at 4.5Ah or higher will do.
Toy & Us sells some of them for kid cars.

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.

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...

I have a metz 60ct-1 flash with a dry cell battery pack. Can I use it with the canon 50D digital slr. if I use the external sync,or would it hurt my camera because it has to much voltage?


Hi I just purchased the same unit last week. DO NOT PLUG IT INTO A DIGITAL CAMERA DIRECTLY.
I got very good advise from KEH photography located in Atlanta.
The voltage is too high from this flash and will destroy the circuits in the new Canon digital camera. You need a module called the " Safe sync " This unit clips onto your new digital camera, ( were the normal Canon flash fits ) and has the "PC" ( the little round connector input ) for the Metz control cable,
I am an electronic technologist, and still suggest contacting your local photo shop.I know electronics , but not all the photo stuff. Snap away and be happy!

External Flash for 3000Z


I have tried a couple of external flashes on the 3000Z. It is my understanding from reading various Internet posts (and I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong) that, other than triggering the flash to go off, there is no communication between the external flash in the hot shoe of the 3000Z and the 3000Z itself. Settings need to be made manually in the manual mode to set the f-stop and the aperture to get good exposures. The Metz flashes are expensive. Most have opted to use less expensive flashes such as the Vivitar 283/383, or a Sunpak, or even a "Wal-mart" flash. I chose an inexpensive bounce flash with a secondary "fill-in" flash to get rid of the shadows sometimes seen with indoor bounce flash pics. I purchased the Phoenix 82ZBDA Multi-dedicated twin flash from Porter's Photo Catalogue for $37.95. This flash works fine, but is not that powerful (GN 79 ). If you need a more powerful flash, you might consider the Vivitar 383.
