    Smile Metz Mecablitz 44 AF 4o

    The Metz Mecablitz 44 AF4o is a dedicated Olympus system flash which supports the FP TTL mode (called Olympus HSS by Metz).

    The olympus version is identical to the other models in looks and use.

    Guide No at ISO 100/21 (105mm) 44
    Guide No at ISO 100/21 (50mm) 34
    TTL & FP TTL support
    Motor-Zoom, Extended-Zoom
    Max angle 24mm
    Tilting of head
    LCD on the back
    Manual mode, EV control (through camera)

    NC batt min: 0.2s, max 4s
    Alkaline min 0.2, max 5s
    NiMH min 0.2, max 4s

    #of (full power) flashes:
    NC 600mAh: 85
    Alkaline: 240
    NiMH 1200mAh: 205

    weight: 400g

    size: 75x125x108mm

    - powerful
    - fast
    - easy controls
    - built quality

    - EV control only through body .. on E1 this means pushing flash button and "+/-" button and dialing main dial. "three fingered salute"

    - no turning of head .. for me not an issue, others might disagree

    Sample image shot with this flash:

    and another one:

    both with omnibounce attached to the flash

    Default Re: Metz Mecablitz 44 AF 4o

    I picked one up from B&H. Have to say that I am impressed so far. I have shot a few frames just to see how it handles a couple of situations and it passed so far. I will post them when I get a chance. The cycle times were fast. It is dead simple to use. Has lots of power. It is quite compact. I sells for half of a FL50 a little less than a FL36.
