Metz was also present at the IFA 2005 event. Although mainly focused on television applications and devices I found a new flash made especially for Nikon digital SLR cameras. Perfect flash photography with Nikon digital cameras is the strength of the powerful Metz Mecablitz 54 MZ-4i. The integration of high-precision flash modes guarantees uniform exposures with brilliant, yet highly differentiated colour rendering. Depending on the camera model, you can select the D-TTL, 3D/D-TTL or 3D multi-sensor fill-in modes, as well as i-TTL or i-TTL BL flash control. Furthermore, the Metz Mecablitz 54 MZ-4i can be used with system cameras from other manufacturers merely by exchanging the corresponding adapter.

Wide illumination angle: Covers the focal length from 20mm to 105mm. Fill-in flash: With integrated secondary reflector to brighten up the dense shadows around the eyes. Versatility: A multitude of interesting special functions for thrilling creative scope. Simple operation: A large display provides all the information that could possibly be needed. Flexibility: The versatile SCA system with its numerous adapters for almost any system camera. The High-Speed Synchronization feature (HSS) ensures perfect flash photography at shutter speeds faster than the camera's sync speed. This is vital for fill-in flash to produce a uniformly exposed portrait against a blurred background.
