Product Features in Detail
System flash units
Capturing the perfect shot is now even easier with powerful Metz system flash units – your convenient fully automatic device ensures optimal illumination for every picture. Whether amateur or professional: there’s the right model to meet any requirements and userfriendly operation makes even sophisticated flash techniques child’s play.
Specialist flash units
Regardless of whether you prefer to take digital or analogue photos, Metz has the perfect flash unit to tackle any challenge – whether multi-purpose flash units with SCA adapter for different cameras, handy compact automatic flash units or slave/servo flash units for creative macro lighting design.
Metz provides a comprehensive range of accessories for all flash unit requirements – from rechargeable batteries and charging units for power supply, to technical equipment such as TTL or sync cables, and equipment for professional flash scenarios using reflector umbrellas and soft boxes. Many accessories are also compatible with non-Metz flash units.
Long-standing tradition of innovation
The name Metz has been synonymous with professional flash units for decades. The exceptional reputation has been shaped by numerous technical innovations – such as the use of USB connections which allow flash units within the camera system to be updated for the latest camera model even after purchase. Today, we offer a diverse range of products from convenient compact flashes right through to powerful handheld flash guns.
Brilliant light for the perfect moment
Using a flash no longer simply means making a dark subject lighter. Anyone using additional light when taking a shot can creatively manipulate the light to suit their requirements – aiming it directly at the subject, indirect flash with a reflector, or even flash “without constraints” with devices that can be used independently of the camera. Many Metz flash units make it possible to calibrate light levels, weighting them as desired to deliver just the right mood lighting. Even by day, the right flash can deliver better photos; brightening shadows or contre-jour to give pictures undreamt of sharpness and brilliance.
Spanning great distances
Thanks to digital flash control (e.g. E-TTL) the light output of a Metz system flash unit can be controlled via the camera. In order to preserve the ambient mood lighting, the shutter speed should be longer than the flash sync speed – but no longer than 1⁄60 second for portraits.
When it comes to portraits, turning or rotating the reflector head for a bouncing flash can be highly effective. Light can be deflected via a special reflector umbrella or a flip-out reflector card integrated into the flash unit itself – to create soft harmonious lighting.
Manipulated with skill, contre-jour can deliver interesting lighting effects. Using a flash is a must. Reducing the f-stop by one or two points makes it possible to retain the character of the ambient light. The higher the guide number, the greater the range of the flash unit.
Long shutter speeds
Get creative and try taking shots with longer exposure times than sync times. In this way, moving subjects can, in around one second, create interesting blur effects and a corresponding lightening of the foreground.
Slave flash mode is perfect for particularly creative lighting design. This involves the positioning and use of an external flash unit wherever required, and entirely without the need for a cable. This can create interesting light accents – or with the use of several slaves, the split lighting of subject and background.
