    Depends on the type. If you have a Metz 45 CT-1 you definitely need a voltage limiter, mine has a trigger voltage over 200 V. My CT-3 has a trigger voltage of 6.6 V and the CL-3 15.7 V which apparently is safe for a GH2 (used it, no problem).

    I edited this post after checking type numbers and voltages because my memory got it all wrong :redface:.

    My 45-CT4 works fine. I measured the voltage and it was maybe 5 volts. I don't remember exactly. But ymmV, so measure yours before plugging in.
