The Metz 58 AF-2 Digital Flashgun with old Sony fit is the successor to the 58 AF-1 flashgun and has been equipped with a new metal hot shoe base and a quick lock system making camera attachment easy with one single movement. Refinements such as the revised motor zoom mode and an improved high performance flash tube further increase the longevity of the product. The mecablitz 58 AF-2 digital also offers a new servo flash release functionality triggered by the integrated camera flash, making off camera flash possible using cameras without a master function. The slave/servo sensor has been integrated into the front of the flash unit to increase the transmission quality of wireless flashes for both the new Servo facility and the Slave TTL wireless flash in Master or Slave mode. The wide-angle diffuser has also been adapted for illumination of wide-angle focal lengths from 12mm (135format).
