One other note about Metz flashes is they tend to have two flashes. The primary flash is the flash-head and on the handle is a secondary flash which is about equivalent to the one on a compact point and shoot.

What happens usually when you bounce the flash there are shadows under the chin and in other places on the face. Sometimes under the eyes. The secondary flash takes those shadows out.

Same with the 45CT's. The shadows caused by that small fill flash which is from a tiny flash window, are extremely sharp and cause awful shadows behind the subjects on any walls which are around. It was not recommended to use the fill flash at full output with the CT45.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a natural result?
