Default C-730 Ultra Zoom with Metz 45CL

Hi all

Can any one help me ? I'm think of buying the C-730 Ultra Zoom and I have the Metz already. I see that the reviews mention the FL40 dedicated flash. The question, can I adapt the Metz ?

Thanks in advance

Steve

Metz have already the adapter for c700z , so I guess itís coming for the 730 ( they look similar and have the same 5 pin flash connector) check here for the availability of adapter:

For the meantime, you can trigger the flash (in auto mode) with a slave cell if it does not preflash. In case it does preflash ( the cheap slave cell wonít work), I donít think a Wein slave is worth , save the $$ for the Metz ttl adapter.

May be Olympus have a cord that give you a pc connection , in which case you can connect your Metz directly ( still in auto mode, not ttl)

Thanks for that I will wait for the adapter and buy the camera in the short term. Oh and thanks for the link.

Bye for now
