I inherited Metz 35 CT2 flash from my grandfather and I don't have an idea how to set it up for use with my old manual Praktica camera. There is a "slider" which has lens hood numbers on it, DIN numbers above and distance in meters below. Then there is a chooser with options: TTL, M, yellow A, blue A, red A (these colors are also marked in the distance below the slider). How should I set the slider and chooser when I want to take photo with my all manual Praktica? Can someone roughly describe what does all the options mean?
Googled at some Pentax maillist archive:
So I guess the slider at the top sets power for manual mode, where aperture/ISO/distance table is a guide for setting the correct power. Colored auto modes might be build-in metering for different f-stops, and TTL should be TTL metering work with some Metz-compatible camera.
