  • 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. I own other Metz flash handle mount such as the famous 45 CT-4 and the more automated 50 MZ-5. Compared to thes units the 76 does NOT measure up.
  • Pros: Clean Even Light, Good Color Value, Powerful
  • Cons: Expensive, Finnicky, Flimsy, Loses Charge Quickly, Noisy, Plasticky, Unreliable

Very powerful, but no HSS

  • 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.
  • Pros: Powerful Output

Not what I expected, ?better manuel?

  • 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?? So far I can only get the auto setting to work with my camera.

Terrible Warranty Service

9 February 2007
  • 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. Even though the unit was defective out of the box and was sent back to them a few days after purchase, they would not replace it. Even though their web site promises 8 days turn-around time for repairs, they have had my unit for over 6 weeks now.
