About Metz 36 AF5

Metz 36 AF-5 i-TTL Flash for Nikon/Fujifilm Digital Cameras is just the right flash solution. In addition, it is impressive because of its easy operation. Even bounce flash becomes child's play, due to the vertically-tilting reflector. The manually adjustable zoom reflector has other advantages. By adjusting the reflector to different focal lengths, the illumination angle of the 36 AF-5 digital can be optimally utilized.

Very good piece of kit


from California and the Philippines  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have not had that much time to play with the unit at the moment, but the little I have had, it has proven to work very well, and for the price, I definitely cannot complain. Well worth the pennies, and in fact, this is the second exact same model that we have in our family, and all seems good to excellent!!

Waiting to get the replacement


from Rochester, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

The flash stopped working after approximately 20 flashes. I have sent it back and am waiting for a replacement. I hope this was a defect and not a common problem with this flash.

Questions about this item:

Ray S  compatible with nikon D90 and rogue flash bender?
Andrew R  Should work with most Nikon DSLRs. The Rogue Flash bender is a "universal" system and should work with most adjustable shoe mounted flash units.
Shopper  can I use this flash with my Nikon V1 ?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, Metz does not indicate compatibility with any of the 1 series cameras.
Patrick M  Will this work with the Fujifilm X-10?
ARLYN D  If it has a hot shoe
