    For sale are a gently used Metz 48 AF-1 flash and a Pixel FC-314 10m TTL cable (not pictured) specifically for Olympus and Panasonic :43: cameras.

    The flash was purchased used from Adorama. It was considered in EX+ condition and I made sure to keep that way; it remains free of dings and scratches and looks as good as new, though it didn't come in the original box. This fully functioning flash has a GN of 48m/157ft @ ISO 100 and supports TTL and HSS on-camera. Off-camera, using a TTL cable will allow full-featured functionality, or it may be used as a dumb slave (servo mode, may require firmware update).

    I used this combo with my GH1 with fantastic results!

    2012-01-08_21_08_08_small.

    Asking price: $190 for the flash, $15 for the TTL cable; Buy them together, $200.

    Buyer pays for shipping.

    Thanks for looking!

    OK i think you forgo to add the ISO number in there, Is it safe to assume you meant to type ISO 200?
    Pardon my Ignorance , but how the heck do you do a firmware update on a Flash/strobe?
    Sorry, although I own and use many TTL flashes for film cameras I never owned or used a Digital flash/strobe.
    Also, remind me what HSS stands for.

    Generally updates are done in the same way you would update a lens firmware. You connect it to the body of the camera, and then the software will update the firmware of the attached devices also.

    Generally that is true, but in the case of the Metz flash it has a USB port for firmware updates directly from a computer.

    Flash units are usually rated at ISO 100. HSS is high speed synch or "FP" mode in Olympus lingo.
