Metz’s mid-range flash­gun pro­vides a suit­able alternative to Nikon’s SB-500 Speed­light. It’s deeper than the Nikon, but much shorter, mak­ing it ideal for those who like their kit to be com­pact. De­spite its diminu­tive size, though, it’s rated at GN40 (the SB-500 is rated at just GN24) and it fea­tures a mo­torised zoom (24-105mm). It’s also i-TTL com­pat­i­ble, and boasts an OLED dis­play, mas­ter/slave modes, and high-speed sync. There’s even an LED video light ca­pa­ble of 100 Lux at one me­tre.

First im­pres­sions_ A com­pact flash that punches well above its weight.
