The Metz 52 AF-1 Digital Flashgun features all the benefits of the previous model (Mecablitz 50 AF-1) and includes further developments. The sophisticated design of the 52 AF-1 offers an increased guide number of 52 (ISO 100/21° at 105mm focal length) and an illuminated touchscreen display which rotates through 90°. This is particularly practical for operation and taking portrait shots. The 52 AF-1 supports the major special functions on digital cameras from Canon (E-TTL and E-TTL II), Nikon (i-TTL and i-TTL-BL flash mode), Olympus/Panasonic/Leica (four thirds TTL mode), Pentax (P-TTL) and Sony (DSLR-ADI). It allows precise light output tailored to each individual subject and provides plenty of power for all shooting conditions. Possibilities are opened up for individualised lighting thanks to a fully swivelling reflector system which also contains a flip-out reflector card and a diffuser. As well as the newly integrated master function, a slave function and servo function are also available.
Metz 52 AF-1 Digital Flashgun
User-friendly touchscreen display
Metz is exhibiting a compact flash unit with integrated touchscreen display for the first time at photokina 2012. It is very easy to operate the 52 AF-1 illuminated graphic display by directly touching the display indicators. For portrait shots, the display thinks with you and rotates the touchscreen display by 90°. That means that the settings can still be optimally identified in this format and the different functions of the mecablitz 52 AF-1 can be practically selected by touching the display.
Numerous application possibilities
With the new mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital, the options for image composition are almost limitless. It allows precise light output tailored to each individual subject and provides plenty of power for all shooting conditions. Performance and reliability have been further optimised through improvements to the high performance flash tube. Numerous manual fine tuning options extend your creative photographic freedom. Virtually limitless possibilities are opened up for individualised lighting thanks to a fully swivelling reflector system which also contains a flip-out reflector card and a diffuser. As well as the newly integrated master function, a slave function and servo function are also available. These allow the new premium flash unit to be used in differentoperating modes, depending on the camera model. With the servo flash release, no camera master function is required to use the flash as an additional creative light source in the room. The camera-specific wireless TTL remote mode of the respective models comes into play with the master/slave function.
High performance compact flash with USB connection
Thanks to the Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital USB interface, updates can be easily installed via the Internet. Due to its high guide number of 52 for ISO 100/21° and 105 mm focal length, the 52 AF-1 digital not only possesses a great deal of power, it also lends itself perfectly to being used for bouncing flash. The real highlight – a flip-out reflector card which is integrated into the both vertically and horizontally tilting and swivelling reflector. The 52 AF-1 has a metal base (not applicable for the Sony model) and can be quickly and conveniently fixed to the camera’s flash shoe.
Different versions for Canon, Nikon, Olympus/
Panasonic/Leica, Pentax and Sony It goes without saying that the respective camera manufacturer’s sophisticated flash lighting technology can also be employed with the appropriate version of the mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital, in addition to numerous other special functions, such as high speed synchronisation. Thus the 52 AF-1 digital offers E-TTL and E-TTL II flash mode for Canon, i-TTL/i-TTL-BL flash mode for Nikon, P-TTL for Pentax, four thirds TTL mode for Olympus/Panasonic/Leica and ADI flash mode for Sony.

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
