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.
Good light!

The 60CT-4 was not made for digital cameras.
It does TTL on film not on CMOS or CCD sensor.

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.

I dropped my camera now the flash is broken,


yes of course, there are a lot of brands that compatible with Nikon D-60 e.g Nikon itself, Metz, Vivitar, Nissin, Yong Nuo, etc.

The flash with iTTL support would be an advantage

iTTL is the feature Nikon has to measure the perfect light produced from the flash from the condition of the object

hope this advice help you with your problem

If the shoe of the flash is compatible with the hot shoe of the camera then yes go for it. Should the flash shoe be different then the flash will still work but with a shoe adapter. Both are TTL so I see no reasons why they won't work. I do know of a friend who uses the Nikon with the same flash but it has the battery pack fitting and uses an adapter on the camera's hot shoe. He does weddings galore and never had a problem even though he carries a spare he has never used it.

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.
