PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS

Notable Features

Even an award-winner can be made better. The “best flash unit in Europe 2007/2008*” has received a little more fine tuning. In order to carry on meeting the highest standards in quality, a high quality metal base** has been added which can be attached to the camera’s flash shoe in one easy movement. Technically speaking, no wish is left unfulfilled. The innovative high performance unit boasts a USB interface through which specific firmware for each model variant can be conveniently updated via computer and Internet. It looks sleek, artfully meters flash and is both intuitive and impressively powerful. Equipped with new innovations, the Metz mecablitz 58 AF-2 digital offers cutting-edge secondary reflector technology, high performance energy management, multiple zone AF flash metering and a fully pivoting reflector system. The Metz top model works with all camera-specific system flash modes from Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Olympus/Panasonic or Sony Alpha cameras including their respective wireless TTL modes. If the camera has a built-in flash then the mecablitz 58 AF-2 digital can be employed wirelessly in the system, even in servo mode (only Canon, Nikon and Olympus/Panasonic version). Thanks to its high guide number, the 58 AF-2 digital is not only extremely powerful but can also be used effectively for bouncing flash. Metz has integrated a flip-out reflector card for its vertically tilting and horizontally swivelling reflector. Thanks to the integrated and system controlled secondary reflector, bouncing flash adds additional brilliance to close-ups.
