Metz 26 AF-1



A compact all-rounder that is setting new standards.

Despite its compact size – it even fits in a shirt pocket – the new mecablitz 26 AF-1 digital boasts comprehensive features. The flash output impresses with a guide number of 26 for ISO 100/21° and 85mm, and outperforms integrated flashes. Its handy format makes it the ideal holiday companion, particularly suited to compact cameras with flash shoes. Adjustments can be set using the function keys – ideal for flash novices who expect nothing less than perfect illumination. The ingenious design enables the reflector to be rotated for an indirect flash. Together with the integrated wide angle diffuser, the mecablitz 26 AF-1 digital allows sufficient creative scope for inventive illumination – for shooting videos, too. Because an additional two-level adjustable high output LED permanent light with up to 30 Lux lights up even motion picture photography.
