The Metz CS-2 Digital Flash is an ingenious little device from Germany which acts as an add-on flash unit for your digital camera. The clever bit is that it sync flashes along with your pop-up unit, and not only that, but it can be fired remotely via an infrared trigger, which means that you can start shooting professional type lighting with a plain old vanilla point and shoot camera. It’s not a totally new idea, but this is certainly the most nicely engineered type we’ve seen. Around $175.00 from Amazon or £92.00 from the Digital Camera Shop. [Thanks Abhijit)
How often have you been disappointed about dark photos merely because the flash integrated in your camera was not powerful enough? And have you ever wanted a handy compact flash unit that can be used seperately from the camera! Well Metz offers the perfect solution with the mecablitz 28 CS-2 digital – optimally adapted in performance and size to compact digital cameras! The fun factor is enhanced with the self-learning slave mode and the ingenious EASY-Mode. For the very first time the flash shot taken can be directly influenced with the instant correction keys (+/-)! This means simply release the shutter, check the result on the camera’s monitor, and correct with the keys should this prove to be necessary.
