Martin, Northwich Photographic enthusiast not professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Works well with Lumix G10. Great results when bouncing flash. Great illumination and auto zoom head is a great advantage.
Bad points:
G10 doesn't allow the flash's focussing beam to operate. It uses it's own.

Manufacturer's Description

The mecablitz 50 AF-1 digital is the new generation of the 48 AF-1 digital, winner of the TIPA Award for “best photographic accessory 2008”. All the benefits of the previous model have been retained and numerous further developments have also been added.

The elegant housing can be mounted onto the camera flash shoe via the new metal base and fixed in place quickly and easily with a single movement thanks to the optimised lock system.
The guide number has been increased to 50/ for ISO 100/21° and 105 mm focal length. Performance and reliability have been further optimised through improvements to the high performance flash tube. Moreover, the flash has been equipped with a servo flash release via the camera’s internal flash which also works independently of the camera’s master function. Even the wide-angle diffuser has been adapted and is now even suitable for illumination of wide-angle focal lengths from 12 mm (135 format).

Like all mecablitz system flash units, the new flash unit is available in different versions, perfectly tailored to digital cameras made by the leading manufacturers.
