Without knowing what a 9600 is I cannot be sure, but the cl45 has a flsh connection cord to be conected to your cameras X sync port. This means the camera will only trigger the flash and the flash unit does all the calculations on its own (ie it does not work as a dedicated flash unit in this mode). You may be able to get a hot shoe connector to get some of teh cameras functions controlling the flash unit, but the amount of control the camera can send to the flash unit will depend on how old the flash unit is and whether it has these functions to start with.

Contact Metz direct and ask them. Thier site is located here:

Good luck.

Note: I had an old one of these years ago (pre Digital) and it was a great flash unit.

To use Metz 45CL-1 with Nikon D5100, you need use in apperture priority mode (A), adjust same ISO and apperture in Flash and Camera (Ex: ISO400 and F: 5.6) . The flash adjust light intensity to mantain correct exposition. You need use an adapter to conect Sync cable in your camera.

Flash replace


I assume that you were using an external removable flash because the original flash is built in and cannot "slide" off.
Any recent canon flash should work. Alternatively, you could buy a flash from Yongnuo, Sunpak, Metz or any other flash manufacturer as long as you say that it must be compatible with your camera.
hope this helps.

I dropped my camera now the flash is broken,


yes of course, there are a lot of brands that compatible with Nikon D-60 e.g Nikon itself, Metz, Vivitar, Nissin, Yong Nuo, etc.

The flash with iTTL support would be an advantage

iTTL is the feature Nikon has to measure the perfect light produced from the flash from the condition of the object

hope this advice help you with your problem

Have new Nikon D700. Have Mets flash gun. Have


Even older flash units from the same manufacturer can damage newer digital cameras. It's a matter of the trigger voltage. Older flashes can put a lot more juice through a digital camera than the camera can handle.

Since you neglected to specify the model of your Metz flash unit, I can only suggest you look it up here.

External flash for dmc-fz50


Okay, first off, Panasonic makes several external flash units that work with this camera. The FL360 seems to be the best buy, though at around $300 it is not exactly cheap. It has TTL and I am very happy with mine. I bought a cheap Sunpak to use with my older FZ30 but I think the voltage was too high, as it stopped working with the hotshoe. I would not recommend using any flash that is not rated to work with a digital camera. The problem is, almost all that are currently made are designed to work with specific camera models. So, the Panasonic flashes seem to be the way to go. There is also a FL500, which has a higher guide number, but it is close to $500.

Now, you don't necessarily need FL360s or even digital flashes to work with a slave unit. I have one I picked up at a camera store to use with my Sunpak as a second off camera flash. As long as you have a flash to trigger them (i.e. the built in flash, or something like the FL360) any flash with a slave trigger will work. One other possible solution is a device also made by Wein that allows you to use an older flash with a digital camera. It reduces the trigger voltage and prevents damage to the camera. I have one on order, not to use for that purpose, but because it also allows one to use a plug in flash with a camera that lacks the appropriate place to plug the flash in. I hope that helps.

Metz 45CL-4 not firing consistently... Hi, Have a problem with a Metz 45CL-4 flashgun. I may have damaged the circuit by rapid charging from an external NiMh pack whilst trying to form the main capacitor....


Hi Guys!
I have had the same problem on CT-1 s and CT-5s.
In both cases the flash cable (called PC synch cable) was to blame. If flash fires correctly with the test button on the handle, then cleaning the cable contacts with contact cleaner spray seems to be the best first step.
Regards,
Gerard

Flash for 3100Z


I use a Sunpak 433D flash with my Epson 850Z camera. Do a search for vivitar in this forum and you should get a lot of hits.

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.

External flash for the 3000Z


bought the Metz 32 Z-2 that was recommended by Epson. I did a great deal of searching/researching on the web, and eventually came to the conclusion (my personal conclusion...YMMV..as well as others) that it was worth the price. I've also had two (non-digitial) pros hold the metz name in very high regard. I like it so far although I haven't used it much for nice portraiture. I did use it at the beach one night in the *dark* from 10 meters (couldn't see *anything* on the LCD when snapping the picture) and a few turned out really nice. Some were not in complete focus, but hey, it was dark. I will say it is much larger than I expected. When mounted on the 850 it felt nice. But with the 3000 being a little smaller, it is rather large. With a teleconverter lens and the flash mounted together, the whole ensemble feels rather nice. I'd recommend finding one in person first. It does have about all the features one could want tho...
