The Metz mecablitz 58 AF-2 TTL Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax DSLR is the premier Metz shoe mount flash designed to be compatible with all digital Pentax SLR cameras. To better facilitate compatibility with current and future cameras, this flash features a built-in USB port that allows for future firmware updates via the internet. Advanced features include a secondary reflector with 3 light output ratios, built-in reflector card for soft light, a permanent "modeling" light for checking the photo, and a high quality metal base that allows quick and easy attachment to the camera.
The 58 AF-2 is designed to fully support a Pentax digital SLR camera's TTL system. Both P-TTL flash mode and P-TTL remote mode (master and slave operation) are possible. It can be operated as a TTL slave unit that can be controlled by the camera's own built-in commander mode or as a manufacturer's flash with master capabilities.
The flash also features an auto zoom head from 24-105mm that can be set to match the camera's sensor, a full bounce and swivel head (with a fully swiveling reflector system which also contains a flip-out reflector card and a diffuser), a built-in wide angle diffuser for 12mm coverage, and in addition, full manual control with 12 variable power output levels. If the camera has a built-in flash, the mecablitz 58 AF-2 can also be employed wirelessly in the system, even in servo mode.
