Press release:
The Metz 15 MS-1 digital, is a completely redesigned and wireless macro flash that’s equipped with two individually-controllable, swivelling reflectors built in to  the housing. The macro-flash ensures balanced and precise lighting and also allows customisable light when shooting macro.

With its individually variable reflectors (0°-20°) and the highly sensitive light distribution, there are no limits to personal creativity. It is easy to set light accents that are appropriate for each theme. And all this with maximum user-friendliness, because the Metz mecablitz 15 MS-1 digitally regulates light through the automatic wireless TTL*, which provides reliable and precise lighting – or provides differentiated lighting via its special slave function, by means of six different part-lighting levels.

* Flash device with master function required (e.g. 58 AF-1 digital).

First class user convenience
The Mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital lies snug in the hand. Small, light, handy – with a practical clip mechanism so it can be fixed to all standard lenses. With independent power supply, so that photographing is not disturbed by troublesome cables.
In addition, an intuitive, attractive DOT matrix display makes the Metz mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital simplicity itself to use.

Versatile macro flash with TTL and slave with learning function
The remote TTL flash operation of the mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital can be used for digital cameras of the following makes: Canon, Nikon, Olympus/Panasonic, Pentax/Samsung and Sony-Alpha. In this case, the camera must either have an integrated flash unit acting as master, or be equipped with add-on flash (e.g. Metz 58 AF-1 digital).

In slave mode, the mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital is also suitable for nearly all other makes of camera.
Manual flash operation can be carried out via a synchronous cable.

In addition, Metz mecablitz 15 MS-1 digital learns autonomously in the conventional slave mode! Its learning function ensures that the small slave flash is reliably triggered every time by the flash integrated in the camera – even if this sends out a ranging pre-flash. In individual cases, this specific cooperation is attained by trial triggering in slave mode. In this case, the light amount emitted can be varied across 6 light levels.

The bouncer disc included in the scope of delivery performs especially valuable service by ensuring even illumination. Rechargeable batteries or AAA batteries, compactly accommodated in the device, efficiently power the device.

Equipped as standard with USB-interface for software updates via Internet.
Adapter rings in the sizes 62, 67 and 72 mm are optionally available.
