Metz 15 MS-1 Wireless Digital Macro Flash

The Metz Mecablitz 15 MS-1 Digital is a world first in the macro world. It is a wireless macro-flash, equipped with twin individually-controllable swiveling reflectors. The ring-form macro-flash ensures balanced and precise lighting and also maximizes the scope for customizing light arrays in the macro area. With its individually variable reflectors (0°-20°) and the highly sensitive light distribution, there are no limits to personal creativity. It is easy to set light accents that are appropriate for each theme. All of these features are compromised with maximum user-friendliness, because the Metz Mecablitz 15 MS-1 digitally regulates light through the automatic wireless TTL.The Metz 15 MS-1 Digital is a versatile macro flash with remote TTL and slave mode. The remote TTL flash operation can be used for the following digital cameras: Canon, Nikon, Olympus/Panasonic, Pentax/Samsung and Sony-Alpha. In this case, the camera must either have an integrated flash unit acting as master, or be equipped with add-on flash (e.g. Metz 58 AF-1 digital). In slave mode, the Mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital is also suitable for nearly all other makes of camera. Manual flash operation can be carried out via a synchronous cable. In addition, the Mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital learns autonomously in the conventional slave mode! Its learning function ensures that the small slave flash is reliably triggered every time by the flash integrated in the camera – even if this sends out a ranging pre-flash. In individual cases, this specific cooperation is attained by trial triggering in slave mode. In this case, the light amount emitted can be varied across 6 light levels.Features:Wireless TTL flash controlTwo reflector system, individually pivoting (0°, 10°, 20°) and separately controlledRatio function (light distribution from left to right)Horizontal (20°) pivoting reflectorDot matrix displayStandard 50 mm illuminationEnclosed bouncer disc for softer illuminationAdjustable light (modeling light)Integrated auto-focus auxiliary lightFlash standby and exposure control indicator on flash unitIncludes:15 MS-1 Digital Macro Flash52, 55 and 58 mm adapter ringsBouncer discIR clip-onsBelt pouch
