You will need a AC to DC transformer.
Make sure which lead or pin is positive.

between 5.0 to 9.0VDC should be ok.

Can a Metz 45CL 5 be used with a CanonD40 safely?


Are you sure that you have a 45CL-5? It's a model which I've never seen nor heard of before, but it's possible that it is a non-standard custom model number for a specific supplier or territory.

The answer to your question is "possibly": but you asked if it can be used safely so the answer must be a firm "no".

Various sources (e.g. here) quote the trigger voltage on the (presumably closely related 45CL-4) to be a little higher or even vastly higher than Canon's 6v limit. Metz themselves are unclear on the issue and it doesn't help that they do not list the CL-5 on their support page nor on their main corporate page, but they do list a 45CL-4 and a 45CL-4 Digital. The differences between the two models may just be to add additional capabilities which suit digital SLR's but perhaps it also brings the trigger voltage below Canon's 6v limit.

As there is so little published information about the 45CL-5 then I strongly suggest that you do not risk your camera until you have a definitive answer from Metz themselves: you can contact their support service by clicking here. The link is for the UK, if you're elsewhere (Australia?) then you may need to make your own search.

I hope that I've been of some assistance and that the links provided help you to get the answer straight from the horse's mouth. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

Metz mecablitz 45 ct 1 and Nikon D-90


The trigger voltage of the 45CL-1 is about 12V, so it should be safe to connect directly to the hot shoe with an adaptor, or to the pc soclet, if the D90 has one. If the D90 is anything like my Canon 40D, which can stand about 30V on the hot shoe, then all the 45CL series will be ok, as they have trigger voltages between 9V and 12V. The 45CT-5 has a trigger voltage of 15V and works well on the 40D. I use 3 different Metz 45 models with my 40D and all work well on automatic, where the flash sensor itself controls the light output.

Contacts voltage


Originally the 45CT1 had high trigger voltage. In the production period Metz improved it to a much lower voltage release circuit. Metz homepage (metz.de) holds the information, from which serial number on have 45-CT1s low trigger voltage. However, even the high trigger voltage was lower than 200 volts, thus safe for your Fuji.
