Metz flash units for “Sony Multi Interface” flash shoes
The Sony versions of the two Metz flash units 44 AF-1 digital and 52 AF-1 digital now come equipped with new feet for cameras with “Sony Multi Interface” flash shoes. While the mecablitz 44 AF-1 digital is considered to be one of the most handy flash units available, the powerful mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital is particularly impressive thanks to its convenient touch display and nu-merous adjustment options. Since the middle of last year, Sony digital cameras now come with the “Sony Multi Interface” flash shoes, making it necessary to adapt the Metz Sony-compatible flash units accordingly. Therefore, now the Sony versions of our 44 AF-1 digital and 52 AF-1 digital flash units have been given new flash feet. This means a Sony flash shoe adapter is no longer necessary. A corresponding adapter is required if you wish to connect flash units with the conventional Sony/Minolta flash feet. These adapters may be included in the scope of delivery for some Sony camera models.
