New flash accessories are now available

TTL connection cable and flash shoe adapter

A further two components as part of the extensive range of Metz mecablitz accessories are now available in stores. The new products are a flexible TTL connection cable for compact flash units and a flash shoe adapter with a sync cable connection. With the new TTL connection cable, the flash can be separated from the camera whilst maintaining its flash system functions. The flash shoe adaptor enables the continued use of flash system functions on the flash as well as the operation of a further flash unit or studio flash unit via the sync cable connection. Both mecablitz accessories are ideal for enabling flexible and creative lighting control from which both amateur and professional photographers can equally benefit.

Wired TTL flashes with TTL connection cable

The Metz TTL connection cable for compact flash units is available in a length of 1.8 metres and allows for full TTL exposure control. It can also easily be used together with a Metz camera rail. Almost every attachment option is possible with the existing tripod socket. Canon, Nikon, Olympus/Panasonic and Sony cameras can all be connected to compatible, external Metz flash units via the TTL connection cable. Photographers benefit from flexible and creative lighting control as a result of using an external flash unit which is not directly attached to the camera. The wired TTL flashes can also be easily controlled using the TTL connection cable. The TTL connection cable TCC-10 for Canon with E-TTL flash mode, TCC-20 for Nikon with i-TTL flash mode, TCC-30 for Olympus/Panasonic with TTL flash mode and TCC-50 for Sony with ADI/TTL flash modes are all available now.

Maximum creativity with flash shoe adapter

Photographers require a flash shoe adapter in order to attach a compatible flash unit to a corresponding camera, and also to connect a compatible external flash via a sync cable connection. The Metz flash shoe adapter serves as an interface between the corresponding Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras and the corresponding flash units. The following flash shoe adapters are available: flash shoe adapter TSC-11 for Canon cameras, TSC-20 for Nikon cameras and TSC-50 for Sony cameras.
The flash shoe adapters TSC-20 for Nikon and TSC-50 for Sony also feature an accessory flash shoe which enables the simultaneous operation of the TTL flash mode on the attached flash unit and the operation of an external flash unit via the connected sync cable.
All Metz flash shoe adapters are equipped with a sync cable socket so that they can be connected to external flash units and studio flash units. By using the flash shoe adapter, photographers benefit from extremely versatile and variable lighting control, which proves to be of great advantage for portrait shots in particular.
