Metz launches Mecablitz 26 AF-1, a pocket-sized flash for hotshoe compacts and CSCs

With a maximum guide number of 26m/85 ft at ISO 100, the Mecablitz 26 AF-1 is many times more powerful than the flash units that come bundled with, or built-in to, this sort of camera - and indeed many don’t come equipped with a flash at all. Learn more
