The new mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital is perfect when you’re on the go. Thanks to the compact, slim-line and lightweight design it can be stashed easily in a jacket pocket and is at hand just when you need it. Currently the smallest Metz system flash unit with GN 24 for ISO 100/21° and 35 mm focal length, it is particularly suited to flash novices who are looking for better illumination in their photos than is possible with a built-in camera flash. Thanks to intelligent TTL camera control the mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital even makes automatic fill-in flash possible. Additional illumination levels are also possible thanks to the 90° adjustable swivel reflector. Flash readiness and exposure levels are displayed on the back of the unit by two LED indicators.
Simply attach and get flashing
Operation of the mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital is child’s play. The 90° swivel reflector provides bouncing flash in enclosed areas. An LED display on the reverse of the device shows at all times whether the flash is ready and if the photo is correctly lit. In back light situations applications such as fill-in flash pose no problem for the mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital. Furthermore, thanks to integrated AF flash metering, the flash can also function effectively as a valuable focusing tool in difficult lighting conditions.
Different versions for Canon, Nikon, Olympus/Panasonic/Leica, Pentax and Sony
It goes without saying that the respective camera manufacturer’s sophisticated flash lighting technology can also be employed with the appropriate version of the mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital, in addition to several special functions, such as first and second shutter curtain synchronisation (subject to camera). Thus the 24 AF-1 digital offers E-TTL for Canon – i-TTL for Nikon – P-TTL for Pentax – four thirds TTL for Olympus/Panasonic/Leica and ADI for Sony.
