The Mecablitz 52 AF-1 is the First Hot Shoe Flash with a Touchscreen Interface

Touchscreen control is becoming more and more common in every aspect of our life, and cameras are no different. Metz takes things a step further by introducing the mecablitz 52 AF-1 flash with touchscreen controls.

The touchscreen gives you control of the different aspects of your flash and even rotates with the camera/flash when you turn the unit 90 degrees to shoot in portrait orientation; meaning you don't have to tilt your head to read the display.

The fully-motorized zoom allows you to change lighting angles and the AF metering flash even works nicely in low light situations.

The mecablitz 52 AF-1 will be coming out in the near future at an estimated price of $325. Visit their site for more details.
