The Metz 48 AF-1 TTL Shoe Mount Flash is one of Metz's shoe mount flashes that are designed to be compatible with all digital cameras, both current and future models. To better facilitate compatibility with current and future cameras, this flash now features a built-in USB port that allows for future firmware updates via the internet.

The 48 AF-1 is designed to fully support a digital or film SLR camera's TTL system. In addition, it can be operated as a TTL slave unit that can be controlled by the camera's own built-in commander mode, a manufacturer's flash with master capabilities, or from a Metz 58 AF1.

The flash also features an auto zoom head from 24-105mm that can be set to match the camera's sensor, a full bounce and swivel reflector head, a built-in wide angle diffuser for 18mm coverage, and in addition, full manual control with 12 variable power output levels.

  • Fully compatible with current and future digital cameras, updatable via USB port
  • High-speed flash synchronization allows flash to be used with any shutter speed (only with appropriate camera bodies)
  • Wireless full TTL triggering via a camera or flash with commander/master mode
  • Autozooming head can cover from 24 to 105mm, and 18mm when used with the included wide-angle diffuser
