Re: First flash

With my D7000, as with my D80 before, I use the Metz 48 AF-1 flash. This model is currently replaced with the Metz 50 AF-1. I found the difference in price compared to the Nikon flashes relevant enough.

Nothing to complain about and no compatibility issues whatsoever. I did some strobist experiments with the Metz as an off-camera slave and the internal flash of the D80 as the master and everything went as expected.

One thing though is the user interface: On a familiy trip I wanted to use the flash again as a slave and not I did not remember how the put the flash in slave mode. Not having the manual with me, I tried everything I could think of but with no succes.
