-   -   Nikon D70 and Metz 45 Compatibility Problem? (

My girlfriend and I, in merging our lives, are trying to merge our equipement as well. I wanted to use her Metz 45 series flash on my Nikon D70, but was told by a fellow at B&H here in NY that they arent compatible. Is this true? Seems in a world of accessories that there must be something to connect 2 huge selling products like these.

Thanks in advance,

It depends on how you define compatible... ;)

If you want an older Metz 45 to work in the new i-TTL mode of the Nikon then NO; However with a PC-cord sync adapter through the D70 hotshoe then - Yes :?

The camera is 1st set on manual at X-sync shutter speed and an aperture to match the dial reading of the Metz 45 on automatic then this combination works just fine :cool:

perfect, thanks for the quick reply. The downside, your name bummed me out by reminding me of the absence of hockey this season. sigh.
