Metz Rolls Out Mecablitz 50 AF-1 Digital Flash

Metz Mecablitz 50 AF-1 Digital Flash

The German-made Metz mecablitz 50 AF-1 Digital flash, successor to the much-applauded 48 AF-1 Digital, has increased its guide number to 50 (in meters) at ISO 100/21° and 105mm focal length. It also sports an improved new flash tube.

Touting an elegant housing, the mecablitz 50 AF-1 can be mounted onto the camera flash shoe via the new metal base and fixed in place quickly and easily with a single movement thanks to the optimised lock system.

The mecablitz 50 AF-1 is equipped with a servo flash release via the camera’s internal flash which also works independently of the camera’s master function. The wide-angle diffuser has also been adapted and is now even suitable for illumination of wide-angle focal lengths from 12 mm (135 format).

The new flash, $320 in retail, is available for Canon, FourThirds, Nikon, Pentax and Sony cameras.
