For me, I'd choose this over the Metz 48 even if there was no difference in price. It is just a great, small and light, flash.
Also - importantly - it may not look like it in the picture, but the flash can be pointed up (at different angles).
I-TTL. The internal flash is disabled automatically as is the the focus light on the flash. All is controlled by the camera. I do find that I need to have the flash angle set to at least 60 degrees to stop light & shadows in photographs. Once charged it is ready to flash almost continuosly. It does all the usual like red eye, pre flash for the camera to make it's setting, back & front curtain as set on camera. All in all very pleased & would recommend.
The flash unit is quite compact, slightly smaller than a deck of cards though a little thicker and it has a durable feel about it. The tilting flash lens allows bouncing off the ceiling but the head does not rotate. There is no Zoom Facility.
The auto focus assist is superb, combined with iTTL produces a perfectly focused and exposed photograph from a pitch black room. An excellent general purpose flash great for filling in on those sunny days. When tilted for bounce effect, a business card can be inserted just behind the lens to highlight the eyes. Its a little gem.
I would recommend this flashgun to others in the same situation.
The gun itself has little in the way of controls, just an on/off switch and a tilting head for bounce flash. (no swivel). That said, it responds perfectly to the controls on the camera for TTL operation - it would just have been nice to have had a reduced power-setting on the gun to help with manual exposures, but to be fair that's a facility that's lacking on the majority of more expensive flashes too.
The operating manual that comes along with the flash is very thick, but as it covers many languages and multiple camera brands is actually of very limited use. Confidence in the manual is not enhanced when it suggests you have a film loaded for TTL tests - this being a DIGITAL flashgun!!! So possibly these are the same Pentax sections from film camera days. :-(
In practice the Q10's pages on external flash guns and the section on the flash options are a much better guide to flash operation than the Metz manual.
So 4 stars overall, a possible top rating being compromised by the poor manual.
It uses only 2 AA batteries instead of the usual 4 - that knocks 50g off the weight for a start.
The flash head swivels upward in stages to 90deg, letting you bounce flash off the ceiling for a very natural look. I also insert a 5cm white card behind the head for a fill-in effect.
The far-red AF illuminator is very effective in helping achieve sharp focus in poor light and is much less disturbing for children and dogs than the multiple flashes used by some small Canon units.
The face-on coverage is for a 35mm lens on a full frame camera (20mm on a crop-frame SLR). So use a diffuser or bounce flash for a wider angle lens.
The Metz 24 gives you ETTL2 exposure control via the EOS menus, but NOT Hi-speed synch or manual flash.
Strangely, you do get manual control on a Powershot G10.
It has a handy mounting lock on the hotshoe.
All this for a fraction of the cost of a Canon product.
