LX5 external flash (Metz mecablitz 24 AF-1)
Nov 3, 2010

Hey,

I have decided to buy a LX5 after a lot of searching between an S95, EX1 & LX5...

For the LX5 I would like to get some more information on an external flash.

Searched quite a bit on the forum, but did not find the correct info...

One solution I have found is from Metz, the mecablitz 24 AF-1 (which can bounce, has 24 GND & full TLL)

( http://www.metz.de/en/photo-electronics/flashlight-recommendations.html?tx_dkdkbshopblitzanw_pi1[cameratype]=2#anwsearch )

Cost would only be about 60€ for this unit, so cheap, is a 2xAA solution and very small for a GND 24 flash.

1st question: Any other solutions this compact and interesting???

2nd question: Can you bounce with the external flash and still use the internal flash as fill flash?

Thanks,
Nick
