Excerpt: Works as advertised on my Pentax K-30. Easy to use, the camera controls the flash. I needed to get up and away from the lens a bit and be able to direct my flash up and away from the subject a bit. This flash does both very well. Nice construction easy and solid connection and lock to camera hot shoe. The only drawback is power is not great, if you need long range light this unit is not the one for you. Works fine for fill flash in family and close up nature still life.
Excerpt: The only not to good it`s the head , look fragil and it move no to smoot . For the price is ok for any body looking just for a flash , but recomend take care as a not to strong body construction.
Excerpt: Good size and power for a compact camera, I'm using it on an EPL-2 and it's fine so far. It's annoying to have to remove the EVF, tho. I agree with the complaints and warnings about the battery cover. And what's up with that locking thingie on the hot shoe?
Excerpt: Used with Panasonic FZ-150. Metz website listed this unit as compatible. The good news is that exposures are top rate and flash is easy to use. Also I purchased it on sale for a very reasonable price. Infrared focusing assist on the flash unit does not work. Fortunately the assist built into the camera does. The battery cover is flimsy and difficult to open. I anticipate it will break before too long. (In fact the 1st unit I received had a defective battery cover.
Summary: I have used this product only a few times, linked to my Canon 500D. I use 4 x 2700mAh AA batteries and have found it fires once or twice only on a full charge.Also, the camera menu ('external flash setting') doesn't seem to recognise this flash?I'm reserving judgement because I haven't used it enough yet, and battery output improves, apparently, with subsequent charges.

Excerpt: Vergeleken met de grotere types Metz flitsers afwijkend. Zoombeweging met de hand, niet zo handig. Duidelijk belichtingsverschil bij uittrekken flitskop. Al met al handig flitsertje om er bij te hebben, bijvoorbeeld op vakantie enz.
Excerpt: mialem z nia wielki problem - nie blyskala testowo, nie laczyla sie z aparatem canon g 11. serwis metza byl bezradny, proponowal odeslanie lampy. Na szczescie moj znajomy wykryl,ze dolny biegun baterii nie kontaktuje z podstawka. Dopiero po wcisnieciu baterii "na sile" lampa zaczela dzialac - zle co sie nawsciekalem, to moje.
