Metz’s New 52 AF-1 Flash Encourages You to Get Fingerprints on its Touchscreen

Metz announced a new flash recently, but it’s not any ordinary flash. The new 52 AF-1 flash is the world’s first hot-shoe mounted flash with a touch screen interface. We’ve seen this trend pop up recently with Sekonic’s new light meters. The flash features a head that rotates 90 degrees, TTL metering, high speed sync, full manual mode, slave mode, a metal hot shoe foot, and a recycle time of 3.5 seconds at full power.

They’ll be available in Canon, Nikon, Olympus and Pentax versions for around $325 US. And I don’t know about you, but I’m going to miss my dials. I could be wrong though.
