Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Please could you recommend a flash I could get that will work with my Nikon D70? My late father was a photographer, and he used Metz flash units, but they've all gone now, and I'd like to get one for myself- preferably soon! Thank you. Tim (By the way, I've just encountered your site for the first time, and have just taken a look at the 'Recent Metz Solutions' section at the end of the screen. Congratulations on anticipating what is needed, and providing a means of making the process of finding out and getting help so easy to use).

    Dear Gryfox,
    Thank you. The only problem is that I live in Ireland, a long way from any cities, and an even longer way from Walmart. What I had intended was to get the flash unit over the internet- through ebay or similar. It's just that I wanted to know what I was looking for.
    Thanks again.

A local Walmart would have a variety of flash units....get one dedicated for Nikon digital SLRs. Ritz Camera is another good source of non-name brand flashes. Please leave feedback if this helps.

I have Meltz 60 CT4 flash and want to use on my Nikon D70 or other Nikon digital camera, is there any adapter or cable available from Meltz? if there is one, whats the part Number? Thanks.


The easiest way is to use a standard Metz sync cable and connect that to the pc flash connector on the Nikon. This is the way I use them on my D200. The sync cables are available on EBay pretty cheap.

My Nikon N50's LCD panel does not work. Everything else works fine; theflash, shutter everything. Help Me Please?


Possible failure of the display unit of the camera is the picture taken is sowing good image after downloading on the PC.
If so the panel must be taken out and checked for voltage on the pad, the flexible strip that connects the display also can be faulty.
You will need to have some experience to open and probe into the display unit.

I've had 2 Metz 54MZ4 flash units with my Canon 1Ds and 10D cameras and none of them work in TTL mode. They give full output power in TTL. What is problem?


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.

Metz 58 AF with Nikon d90 wont flash


Hi, Bad news for you.

Try this.
  1. put new batteries in flash.
  2. turn flash on off camera.
  3. listen for capacitor to squeal (high pitched whistle). If you hear it it is charging. If not capacitor is bad.
  4. Also should see flash ready light come on. If it does not same as #3 above.
  5. If you pass #3 & 4# above press manual flash/check/test button on flash. No flash means bulb is out. It can be replaced.
Hope this fixed ya. Please rate. Good Luck! Comment back if you need further assistance.

Nikon D70


Many electronics for analog (film) cameras will not work with digital. It is a huge frustration for me. See http://www.metz.de/en/photo_electronics/adapter.143.html -- You may have acceptable performance if you put the flash in "A" mode....Dave
