    G3 with Metz Metz 50 AF-1.

    I like what i'm seeing with the Metz range and am considering a 44 AF, 50 AF or the ringflash, if If can stretch to it.

    I want to retain full TTL, can this be done wirelessly or will I need a sync cord?
    If I need a cord then what is the point of a wireless gun?

    A sync cord for the off-camera gun is self explanitary but how would a sync be used with the ringflash to give full TTL.

    After all this waffle... how do I retain full TTL with off- camera flash or ringflash.

    Confused in Wales here.:confused:

    Panasonic bodies don't support wireless TTL, so the cord is your only option.

    Thank you, but what about the ringflash for TTL can it be conected to a cord?

    It seems Metz 15MS-1 can not be used as a TTL flash with a Panasonic camera.
