he Metz 45CL-4 digital Flash BASIC is a heavy-duty handle mount flash that through the use of SCA adapters can support the advanced TTL systems used with DSLR cameras. It has a guide number of 148′ at ISO 100 and it can cover 35mm lenses, or 28mm with the use of the wide-angle diffuser panel. Also, the head can tilt upward 90°, rotate left & right 180°, and offer wireless slave functionality, TTL with proper SCA adapters. Also, along with TTL, these adapters can add slow, high-speed, 1st & 2nd curtain sync modes.
