If it's any help, you can move the Metz CT-45 flash to right side of the camera. You can easily take apart the metal clamp that holds the stem of the flash with just a screwdriver. Slide the shiny metal band off the stem, flip it over and put it back on. Now assemble the clamp again and the flash is now on the right side of the camera. I used to have a home made cable release on my CT45-4. By moving the flash to the right I could hold the camera + flash in right hand and focus with my left hand.
