Kenro Press Release

Nissin Di700 flash gun now available

Kenro has announced the UK launch of the widely-anticipated Nissin Di700 flash gun.

First previewed at Focus-on-Imaging in March 2013, visitors were able to catch a first-glimpse of its innovative features which include new rotating lock release buttons for greater versatility. The model supports 180° horizontal rotation to the right and left, tilts up to 90° and an expanded 7° of downward tilt, making it ideal for close-up photography.

The new Nissin Di700 has a stylish look which features a colourful LCD control panel and selector dial, allowing all settings to be easily operated by a finger-tip.

The second-generation advanced flash gun has an increased auto zoom coverage of 24-200mm compared to its predecessor and can achieve a maximum output of GN54 at 200mm zoom head position (at ISO 100). 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 options whilst shooting.

Furthermore, 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 the number of flashes, which is further reinforced by its impressive synchronization, supporting up to 1/8000 second shutter speed, perfect for incredible wildlife, press and action photography.

Weighing in at 350 grams (without batteries), the Di700 also features added sockets for PC sync and a 3.5mm sync for studio lighting system connection to aid maximum practicality.
