Metz m400 and Serene Automation MX20/RX20

Recommended Posts

I have been working with the Metz M400 and the Serene Automation MX20/RX20 for a few weeks now.

 

The M400 is a great fit for xseries cameras. I use it on my Xt2 and Xpro2. It has worked without any problems ever since i updated it to the newest firmware. HSS and TTL are great. Its good as a on camera bounce flash as the head swivels 180 degree in both directions (one of my biggest annoyances on the Godox TT350F which only goes 90 to the left). Recharge time is relatively fast and I use it with 4 eneloop batteries. I actually prefer the Menu to a normal Flash interface like on the Yongnuos. Build Quality is quite good. The head movement could be a bit stiffer. I had a few Problems when attaching something like a flash disk as it is too heavy. Also the battery door is a bit fiddly. I find it quite good looking. Because of its ease of use and compactness i take it everywhere and now use bounce and fill flash more often.

 

The wireless trigger from Serene Automation just arrived today so i can't give my final verdict on it. HSS and TTL worked out of the box with the m400. Some features are a bit counter intuitive but i guess once you got used to it its quite an effective little device. As the MX Unit doesn't have display i found it useful to map the flash settings to one of the xt2 function buttons. after that its easy to use through the in camera menu. I first thought that wireless manual power adjustment wasn't working but you have to leave the flash in TTL at all times. Right now thats all i can say about the Roboshoot.

 

I hope this was helpful and feel free to ask questions

      I am looking to buy this half case for my new X-T3, I like the fact that I can cover the back LCD not only for safety reasons but to make me look less on it and focus more on photography.
      http://www.luigicases.com/a000-CasesFujiFinepixX100.X10.htm (X-T2 case will work on X-T3)
      However, I am looking to find out from somebody who owns such a case how well it fits and how well it works while shooting. I am concern about some small things but from the photos I cannot say more.
       
      Thanks,
      Serban
