I was at K13 today looking for a flash. The owner told me that Metz had better consistency and that Nikon cannon and other brands had varience in color temperature from frame to frame. I tested what he said (fired off 7 shots mounted on a tripod) and found no difference. Is the Metz flash and better than the original brands?

Metz does support TTL. Not to mention Nikon's 3D multi sensor TTL metering, Canon's E-TTL flash control, and high-speed synchronization (HSS).

From my personal experience, the Metz will certainly give a better consistency with the varying conditions as compared with Canon flash but not sure against Nikon. The colour should also be better.

The Metz flashes are very reliable and robust. Love them.

They have a warm colour cast which is very pleasing. Like shooting with an 81A warming filter attached.

They work very well in Auto mode even with dSLRs.

I particular like the CL-45s and CT-60s models, the one time mainstay of many a wedding photog and photojournalist during the film era.

The CT60 models use dryfit batteries which provide very fast recycle times and no memory problems.

Check out the new Metz 58 AF-1, the world's first USB TTL flashgun. This GN58 ISO100 flash offers home upgrading via USB as camera technology changes and is 100% compatible with both the Nikon and Canon remote systems.

Not the company itself, just the Sg distributor gave up the distributorship. Jessen & Jebsen used to carry the brand. Now Tithes Mkting has taken over.
