If your Metz is for Nikon it will not work in TTL on Cannons. Metz makes different flashes for Nikon and Cannon. I have a Metz 54 that I use with my Nikon D200 and it works as well or better than the NIkon SB800 in TTL.

Can I connect a METZ 45 CL-1 to my CANON D600


Yes, this is the way the flash can be used with the contemporary digital cameras. The camera has to be set to Full Manual mode (in point of the exposition), Exposure Time to 1/100 sec (or the shortest exposure that still assures full opening of the shutter). Aperture on the camera must suit the working aperture on the flash, also ISO speeds must match. The computer in the flash measures the reflected from the subject light and quenches the flash, creating the correct exposure. Mecamat sensor, having narrower reception angle and a sight, helps in achieving the correct illumination even on a relatively small subject. Sync voltage of Metz 45CL1 does not make harm to any digital camera, so you can use even the cheapest hotshoe-to-PC adapter available at many camera shops or you can buy one online. No need to spend much on sophisticated adapters.

I've mislaid my manual for my Metz 54. I haven't used it for a while and can't remember how I set the thing to shoot in ttl with my Fuji S6 Pro. When I'm in ttl mode on the flash the camera doesn't fire....


Not sure what S6 pro is, but if the flash doesn't fire in TTL then the flash is not support the type of TTL in the camera. I had the same problem with Nikon flashes on Nikon bodies. Perhaps you need a newer SCA adapter? Please go on http://www.metz.de/en/photo-electronics/sca-adapter/archive.html to check which adapter you need

I HAVE NIKON D1X CAMERA AND METZ 45CL4 FALSHGUN. WHICH ADEPTER I NEED TO WORK TTL. THANKS. GOLA.


Im not sure that you can get full TTL with this analogue flash. If you can then SC300 should be OK. (I have the Nikon D80 and TTL is not possible with metzcl4 but who needs it)!

Sunpak PZ 4000AF for Canon EOS 35mm SLR body


Canon digital uses E-TTL metering for best flash results, the older Sunpak unit isn't compatible with this, so it is not fully compatible. It may work in manual mode - but won't be as good as a more modern compatible digital flash like the Canon or Metz (eg 58AF1 Canon) versions.

Canon Macro Settings for 100mm lens and Sunpak 12R ring flash


Firstly, be sure to check flash voltage. Your 30D may accept max 6V so that your camera can be shot if the flash unit has higher voltage than 6V.
1. Use low ISO to keep low noise....around f/8 or more depends on your need and how much DOF you want.....Set the shutter speed around 1/125 to your max speed to stop any movement (your subject or camera itself shaking).
2. Above is set in Manual mode (iso100, f/8 1/125 or 1/250), then you just need to leave the flash to work in TTL mode.
3. It needs battery, the connection is for syncing to trigger and release a proper flash power (in TTL mode).
Hope this help!

Canon 1D MK-II plus Metz 60CT4 set


Massimo,

Yes, the 60CT-4 works with the Pocketwizards.
Yes, they will work by connecting the Metz's cable into the PC of your camera.

To get longer life out of the flash tube, don't use full manual all the time. Like shooting more than 300 in less than 15 mins/day.
Just dail those number down.

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.
