Light WB and exposure settings SpotOn

JJM, Adorama
25 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Heavy Flash on my shot shoe was causing connection problems. I researched the side mounted Metz digital flash. I shoot weddings with a D700. Flash recycle time is great and have only used auto so far and the WB and exposure have been spot on.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output

Metz 76 Series MZ-5, worth the price

Adorama
4 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Some of the reviews complain about quality of this product compared to the older Metz line. I have used both and find the build quality to be fine. It has a more ergonomic design and the grip is comfortable. The output is amazing - this is a powerful flash and will outperform speed lights. This flash does very well when used with a soft box (sold as kit from adorama) or a sto-fin diffuser. My only complaint is that the battery can be tricky to remove.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output
  • Cons: Heavy

Just what I wanted - Unlimited POWER

Adorama
26 December 2011
  • Excerpt: So far I have had pretty good luck with this unit. I wanted a Powerful flash for weddings that would not conk out when I least expected it. This flash delivers. With the ETTL set, I get perfectly exposed pictures each and every time. I read of problems with ETTL and this model, but maybe Metz resolved that issue by the time I purchased mine. The ETTL works great better than on my Canon 580EX II.
  • Pros: Attach Securely, Good Color Value, Long-Lasting, Powerful
  • Cons: Noisy beeber, Plasticky

THE MIGHTY METZ

MEMcD, Adorama
13 June 2008
  • Excerpt: When you are shooting at extreme range the Mighty Metz has the power to get the job done. It can easily be used with an Umbrella or Softbox when you don't want to carry/use studio lights. A very powerful and robust unit. The 76-MZ5 has power with control providing the user with more options than less powerful units.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Easy To Clean, Fast Recycling, I-TTL E-TTL Compatible, Lightweight, Portable, Powerful, Quiet
  • Cons: none

Superb flash unit

digitalDreamsmedia, WEX
19 July 2009
  • Summary: I have used metz equipment for years during my 35mm days and this just continues with what I have come to expect from Metz. I'm using the gun now with a Canon 50d and the ETTL metering is spot on. The gun is powerful, accurate and very well built. Yes it's expensive but if you want a serious professional bomb proof bit of kit then buy one.
  • Pros: Adaptable, Powerful, Well built
  • Cons: Cost

Hervorragend

Uwe Luz, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: Angesichts der Insolvenz der Firma Metz habe ich einen Kauf getätigt, den ich geraume Zeit vor mir hergeschoben habe. Jahrelang habe ich mit einem Macablitz 45 und meiner analogen Nikon F4 hervorragende Ergebnisse in der Blitzfotografie erzielt. Dabei war der analoge Mecablitz den Blitzgeräten von Nikon überlegen. Zu meiner Nikon D 700 hat mir ein leistungsfähiges Blitzgerät noch gefehlt.

Es ist "Der Blitz"

Thomas Zimmermann, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: Womit soll man einen 60-köpfigen Männergesangsverein bei der Aufführung fotografieren? Das Publikum bei einer Karnevalssitzung? Den Popstar, an den man nicht näher als 10 Meter rankommt? Es ist ein Blitz für die extreme Beleuchtungssituation. Mein guter alter Metz 48 AF-1 wird mir weiterhin für mindestens 80% aller Blitzaufgaben gute Dienste leisten, keine Frage. Aber sobald die Situation brenzlig wird, weiß ich mich mit diesem "Schlachtschiff" auf der sicheren Seite.

Il faut l'essayer

Pascal D., DIGIT-PHOTO
23 January 2013
  • Summary: Cette torche est sans doute la meilleur,sa qualité de lumière surprenante,en manuel comme en auto c'est très bon.De plus il ne faut pas avoir peur de son poids car vous gagner en stabilité de prise de vue.j'ai toujours ma torche CT1 de 1985 NG 45 ce qui m'a permis de tester Metz dans le temps sans surprise,l'éclairage de votre sujet comme vous le souhaité c'est à vous d'être intelligent et non à votre flash.Vous pouvez l'essayer monté à l'envers c'est à dire flash sous...
