Kenro Press Release
New model added to the Nissin flash range - Di600
Kenro, the official UK distributors of Nissin Flash Guns, has announced a successor to the well-established Di622 Mark II in the form of the Nissin Di600.
The new model has the same great feature set to its predecessor, but at a better price point, meaning great value for those in the market for a versatile flash gun for their DSLR camera.
The Nissin Di600 is a high powered flash unit (using four AA batteries) and boasts a recycling time of just 5 seconds. The Slave facility synchronises to pre-flash systems, traditional single flash and to wireless remote flash systems, so it's very versatile.
Focal Length and auto zoom range is from 24 to 105mm, with an output of GN44 (m) ISO 100 at 105mm. It features a bounce/swivel head design that swivels 90 degrees to the left, 180 degrees right and 90 degrees up, for bouncing the light off the ceiling. A 16mm wide-angle diffuser is built in together with a fill-in reflector.
The Flash Power Control System for different camera brands include: Canon E-TTL / E-TTL 11, Nikon i-TTL and Sony ADl / P-TTL.
Comments Paul Kench, managing director of Kenro: "This is a great entry level flash gun, plus, if you've ever fancied using multiple flash, the Di600 could be a perfect second unit to use for creative lighting or just as a back-up flash. There's a great feature set for the price."
