Pros: No comments...
Cons:
Broken after I shot 10 films... What else to say?...

I love to take unposed pictures with available light. I have never used a flash before, but I had to buy a strobe for a photo project. I bought the Metz 54 with a foot for my Contax RX. Some days before the project, I shot about 10 films to test all its modes: TTL, Auto, Manual, Stroboscopic etc. Everything was going well but the day of my project, i.e. yesterday, the flash suddenly broke...!!! No indication on the screen, nothing, it was completely dead... Before starting, I put a new set of batteries and everything seemed OK.

The result: I was forced to take all my pictures with an old Minolta camera, instead of my Contax... I am furious with Metz! Of course, I will try to get my money back or a new flash.
