  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I shoot three Canon DLSR bodies which are(1) 5D Mark II (2) 1DS Mark II and (3) the 1D Mark II N I have had my 76 MZ-5 for about two years with no problems.

  • Excerpt: Works with a Canon 5D mkII. Using the 3102 module, the Canon/Metz combo gives you 3 options in the Canon Menu: 1. ETTL- Evaluative. Not so useful in my experience. Almost always underexposes. 2. ETTL- Average. Better than Evaluative.

  • 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.

  • Pros: Attach Securely, Durable, Good Color Value, Long-Lasting, Powerful

  • 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.
