Excerpt: When I purchased this unit, I thought that I was moving up to the old reliable reputation that Metz flash have garnered through out the years. Nothing could be further from the truth. After owning this flash for about a year I decided to sell it and get another unit.
Pros: Clean Even Light, Good Color Value, Powerful
Excerpt: This is a very powerful flash, only no HSS limited its usage. It is difficult to change a flash, every time bride move into a building or move out of a building. I could feel I ask brides to wait for too many times, some of them didn't want to corporate any longer.
Excerpt: I had high hopes for this flash but I may have got a lemon, this flash has performed very poorly for me. On ETTL mode the flash would randomly thow out full power flashes blinding my clients (its powerful) and in dark rooms the flash exposures were all over the place.
Excerpt: I have hope! I am working to find out more about the flash. I was sold on the high volume of pictures I would be able to take with one battery, but so far I can only get it to take 5 to 10 shots. I was also expecting more power for large groups??
Excerpt: Auto Zoom feature is poor. Problems Encountered: I bought a Metz 76 MZ-5 Digital Handle Mount flash and received a defective unit from Metz. I sent it in to Bogen Imaging (Metz' USA distributor) for replacement or servicing.
