Metz Mecablitz 36 AF-5 Digital System Flash Unit MZ36351 is an excellent choice for beginning photography buffs looking to take control of their flash photography. This photo and video light is a substantial improvement over the built in flash systems on most digital cameras, thanks to an array of features that allow you to get just the right exposure in any environment with a minimum of hassle.
