Excerpt: I bought this flash to use on my NX300. Beside the $500 Samsung flash, this is the only TTL flash for NX cameras that has pro type features that tilts and swivels. It has worked excellently in TTL and manual modes indoors and out. I haven't used it in slave mode yet but it does have the capability. I would definitely recommend this flash to any NX users that are looking for a great flash with excellent build quality at a very reasonable price.
Excerpt: I was looking for a replacement for my well traveled Nikon SB-600 and am happy I purchased the Metz. The controls are straightforward - not so on the sometimes confusing Nikon - and setting it up both as single flash or as slave was a snap. Metz is a highly recognized brand and has specialized in flashes for decades - you can't go wrong with this.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile
Excerpt: Having owned two Nikon flashes previously -- both which eventually died after about 4 (or so) years, I decided to try this Metz. It is perfect for me (a serious hobby photographer). While I know how to utilize the sophisticated functionalality of the Nikon branded flashes...I utilize the basic settings/capabilities 97% of the time....and for these tasks, the Metz is perfect - for FAR less money.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight
Excerpt: Have used the Metz flash several times with perfect results. Originally had purchased a Vivitar flash for Samsung NX cameras. This flash was very hard to use and washed everything out on auto. The Mecablitz 44AF-1 works great on auto setting and is very easy to use. I highly recommend this product!
Excerpt: Este es mi primer flash "profesional".Leí bastante al respecto y me decidí por el 44 AF-1. Su buen precio y comentarios me convencieron. !No me puedo quejar! La calidad es palpable. Se siente sólido, es un flash bonito, con buenos acabados y funciona de maravilla. Trae el cómodo sistema TTL así que es bien fácil de usar, pero si hay paredes o techos para rebotar el modo manual me gusta aún mas. No puedo obviar que mi cámara, la Sony A6000. !
Excerpt: After lots of research on line I decided to give this guy a try. Please know that I am an up and coming photographer and much more a video dslr guy. The flash had a solid refresh rate and the bounce worked great. Good for the price.
Excerpt: I'm personally not a big fan of flash photography and typically shoot wide open using available light. However, there are obviously times when this is not practical, so I broke down and bought this nice little unit. It is very simple to use and has 4 manual power levels, which are easy to change. I used the automatic TTL mode at a recent Christmas parade and had excellent results from approximately 50 feet away. Subjects were bright and well-exposed.
