M400: Compact und powerful

The flash unit mecablitz M400 has, despite its very compact dimensions, a guide number of 40 (ISO 100) and an illumination of 105 mm (KB format). It is available in six versions for almost all current DSLR and mirrorless cameras from Canon, Nikon, Olympus/Panasonic, Pentax, Sony and Fujifilm. The compact flash unit is equipped with a motorzoom reflector (24-105 mm) with integrated wide-angle diffuser for 12 mm illumination. Depending on the camera, the mecablitz M400 supports synchronization on the 2nd shutter curtain and high speed synchronization (HSS or rather FP) as well as the wireless flash mode as master or slave. The unique operating concept with OLED display is special.
