Question about Metz 45 CL-1 Flash
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.

My 45CL-1 measures 4.3V across the pc plug, which plugs into the camera's pc socket, or into a hot shoe adaptor. My 45CL-4 measures 9.4V. I've used both flashes successfully on my Canon 40D, which has a max trigger voltage into the hot shoe of about 30V, and max 250V into the pc socket on the side, which is stated in the Owner's Manual. The high trigger voltage was only on the 45CT-1, somewhere around 125V but I haven't measured a 45CT-1 myself. I'm sure that any of the 45CL series would be safe on any camera. Hope this helps. Neil

Use a digital volt meter:
Measures from center contact to outside contact of flash when flash is fully on.
