This top model puts every subject in the perfect light: the Metz Mecablitz 64 AF-1 Digital Flash impresses with its high-performance guide number 64 at ISO 100/21° and 200mm focal length. This makes the Mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital one of the most powerful compact flash units in the world and what’s more it boasts impeccable workmanship and abundant functions.

The new rotating touch display with coloured lighting is a particular highlight. Coupled with its intuitive operating system, this allows the photographer to make quick adjustments to the multifarious setting options, no matter what the situation. The newly-developed motorised zoom means the Mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital is capable of illuminating focal lengths from 24 to 200mm superbly. Moreover, this flexible high-performance unit boasts a USB interface that enables the specific firmware for each of the models to be conveniently updated via computer and Internet.

Its design and pleasant feel also leave nothing to be desired. Not only does the powerful Mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital look fantastic, it provides perfect illumination for any flash exposure. The 64 AF-1 is the top of the Metz flash unit range, and features intelligent secondary reflector technology, which allows wonderfully balanced light distribution, especially for portrait shots. Depending on the version, the Mecablitz 64 AF-1 digital works with the respective camera-specific system flash modes for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Olympus/Panasonic/Leica and Sony cameras, including the applicable wireless TTL modes.
