Question about Metz 45 CL-1 Flash
Can I use my Metz 45CL-1 flash with my Nikon D60 Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
Yes, you certainly can use the Metz 45CL1 flash with your Nikon D60 - with some restraints.
1. The flash must be set to "Computer Mode", you may chose one of the working apertures on the flash so that distance of the subject fall within the covered distance for the given aperture.
2. The camera must be set to full manual mode; the aperture have to be the same as on the flash. The exposure time must be set to 1/125 sec. (For creative photography longer expositions can be set.)
A simple hotshoe to PC cable fires your flash.
This way the Thyristor Computer in your flash assures the flash will illuminate the subject with the proper amount of light. It also works well with bounce flash, provided the flash sensor is aimed at the same subject as your camera lens. Angle of coverage of Metz 45CL1 with a wide angle diffuser allows using a 18mm lens, wlrhout - a 24mm one.

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.
