Announced as “one of the sensational new products that METZ will present at Photokina 2014 in September,” the German company has launched its new flash, the Metz 64 AF-1 digital, with versions for Canon and Nikon.
The new Metz mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital flash is the brand’s new flagship model among flash products and will have a price of 399 dollars.
It has all the characteristics of the previous model, the 58 AF-2 digital, such as the additional reflector and the servo, automatic, and TTL flash modes, all of which have been perfected in various ways in the new model.
The guide number has been increased to 64 with ISO 100 with a focal distance of 200 mm, the Metz 64 AF-1 digital being one of the most powerful compact flashes in the world. The flash is also characterized by its excellent finish and many technical features like the motorized zoom or the completely orientable reflector system.
One highlight of the mecablitz 64 AF-1 is without a doubt its new, illuminated color touchscreen display with an automatic turning function. This offers especially comfortable access to the many setting possibilities of the mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital.
The new flash, like all mecablitz flash products, is adapted to the digital cameras of the most prominent manufacturers. So far it’s available for Canon and Nikon, but after Photokina 2014 it will also be available for Olympus/Panasonic/Leica, Pentax, and Sony.
