Metz mecablitz 24 AF-1 Four Thirds TTL Digital Flash Unit for Olympus/Panasonic/Leica Cameras


About Metz 24 AF1

The mecablitz 24 AF-1 Four thirds TTL digital is the perfect introduction to the Metz system flash unit range. Thanks to the compact, slim-line and lightweight design, it can be stashed easily in a jacket pocket and is the perfect addition to compact system cameras with flash shoe. Metz's smallest system flash unit with guide number 24 for ISO 100/21deg. and 35 mm focal length provides flash novices with better illumination in their photos than can be created with the integrated camera flash. It also lets them employ creative lighting effects such as bouncing flash in the picture composition.

Metz 24 AF1 Features

  • Operation of the mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital is child's play. The 90deg. swivel reflector provides bouncing flash in enclosed areas. An LED display on the reverse of the device shows the photographer at all times whether the flash is ready and if the photo is correctly lit
  • In back light situations applications such as fill-in flash pose no problem for the mecablitz 24 AF-1 digital. Furthermore, thanks to integrated AF flash metering, the flash can also function effectively as a valuable focusing tool in difficult lighting conditions

Good Product


from Bow  -  Photo Enthusiast

Perfect for my Panasonic G5. Small. Light weight.


very nice for price


from detroit,mi  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this with a Panasonic g5 .I bought the g5 for travel. I also own a Sony a65,Sony 350 and use Metz flashes for both. I have found Metz to be all you can ask for in flashes. the Metz 24af-1 is small and portable, recycles fast,and ideal for the g5
