Kenro, the official UK distributors of Nissin Flash Guns, gave Focus visitors a
first-look at the Nissin Di700, a new second-generation advanced flash gun, ahead of
its official UK launch in the coming months.
The new enhanced flash gun comes with a range of innovative functions all designed
with the photographer?s needs in mind. The Di700 model has increased to 24-200mm
from its predecessor and can achieve a maximum output of GN50 at 200mm. Compared
with same-level flashes from other brands, the Nissin Di700 can create a variety of
light changes, giving the photographer a wider range of option whilst shooting.
Nissin have also developed a new rotating lock release button feature for greater
versatility. The model supports 180? horizontal rotation to the right and left,
tilts up to 90? and expands 7? downwards, making it ideal for close-up photography.
What’s more, the Nissin Di700 is the only flash in its category equipped with an
external power socket. Operating with the new Nissin Power Pack PS 8 can greatly
shorten the recycling time and increase number of flashes, which is further
reinforced by its impressive synchronization, supporting up to 1/8000 second shutter
speed, perfect for incredible wildlife and action photography.
For maximum practicality, Nissin has also added sockets for PC sync and 3.5mm sync
for studio lighting system connection.
