Looking for my first flash.

I have the Metz 48 and I couldn't agree more. It's a wonderful flash that I haven't yet completely mastered- it's very powerful and feature-rich. There's one thing though, I don't know how important it is to you, but you cannot use the flash manually while using it wirelessly (with IR). I personally find that a little frustrating. You could of course drop a few more bucks on some radio triggers to do so. I don't know if the Metz 58 or Pentax 540 is capable of that or not.

Oh, and if you haven't visited Matt's Pentax P-TTL Flash Comparison you really, really should. It helped me immensely in my flash buying decision (and to go with the Metz 48). I'm always wanting to make sure I'm getting the best I can, for the money I have.

Where to find a replacement foot assembly for Metz 48 AF-1?
Posted By hanamai

I received the part, and yes, it was $2.00 USD, plus shipping. The total was $8.56 with the cost of shipping.

I got the part within about a week and just replaced it the day before yesterday. It took a lot of patience and a steady hand. And an extra set of hands, helped a lot too.

This is the part itself.



At the price you were quoted, I wonder if they are perhaps sending you the entire bottom assembly. I asked for a price on that, too... but the rep told me that they rarely even quote that, due to it being such an expensive "replacement part." It's basically the brains of the flash.

Twelve Ways to Process the Same Photo in Lightroom

I like them all! Each one (obviously) has a different, but pleasant tone/feel.

BTW I do the same thing in Lightroom (while I have the current beta, anyway) and I always have a hard time deciding which final one share. Then I end up not sharing any, because the decision is a pain. I hate being indecisive.

Wow! I don't blame you! That's got to be one busy house, I can't imagine the food consumption alone!

Indeed they are twins. :D I have a boy and girl. (Fraternal, of course- Which I'm sure you already figured, but you'd be surprised how often I still get asked! I'm always polite, but sometimes I just want to yell, "Hello!- One is a boy and the other is a girl! How could they possibly be IDENTICAL?!")

This is such a great idea! I've always noticed we're in the minority and I really wish I could make it, but it's just not going to happen with two soon-to-be five year olds. That, and that I am in Florida...

By the way, I love all the girl names we've acquired, here! Hilarious!

Very nice. I really like the effect. Perhaps a wooden bat would have given it a slightly more dated feel. (Knew right away, it had to be an MI girl with that Tigers jersey.)

Care to share your PP techniques? I'd love to try something like that. If not, that's completely understandable.
