Q about usability of a Metz 40 MZ-3i
Yesterday I took the Metz 40 MZ-3i off the shelf to try if it works with A77. The adapter-shoe is model 3302 with firmware M5.
What I found was that the flash only gave full throttle and the zoom mechanism did not work at all. With the wireless I had no success at all. I must admit I have no experience with wireless.
Now I am wondering if this ancient flash still is usable.
Would a new adapter-shoe (the 3302 was for KonicaMinolta) improve things?
Should not wireless work? Then could the strength of the flash be controlled by any auto-mechanism?
Thanks for looking at the question.
