The Metz mecablitz 45 CL-4 digital flashgun is now available as a basic system for photographers who largely work with manual or automatic flashes, or as a kit version which comes with an SCA connecting cable, NiMH batteries and a recharging unit.
The company said the basic version is ideal for photographers who put a higher priority on manual adjustment, high light output and rapid recycling times than on an extensive range of options. It is equipped with a secondary reflector so that perfect highlights can be created in portraits.
The kit version allows for camera-specific system flash operating modes for a wide variety of camera brands using a suitable SCA adapter. Metz said the TTL mode and the automatic functions can be just as easily set as manual partial lighting via the practical dial on the top of the 45 CL-4 digital. The reflector’s vertical and horizontal tilt and swivel abilities can also be used for indirect flash lighting, the company added.
