Kenro has launched a new power pack from Nissin, the PS 8 version, with added features to provide more power and faster charging time for flash photography. Compared to its predecessor, the core boosting circuit of the Nissin Power Pack PS 8 has been redesigned in order to reduce heat, and now uses high-strength plastic instead of metal housing for the body. As a result, its size is now more compact whilst not compromising on performance. Another key feature added to the new PS 8 version is its exclusive battery cartridge design, which greatly increases the battery capability whilst also helping to decrease its overall weight to 761 grams including a Ni-MH battery pack. The Nissin PS 8 Power Pack is compatible with Canon, Nikon and Sony digital SLR cameras and is available now with a suggested retail price of £165.

Kenro Press Release

Multi-functional Nissin PS 8 Power Pack showcased at Focus on Imaging

Kenro, the official UK distributors of Nissin Flash Guns, has launched a new all-powerful power pack from Nissin, the PS 8 version, with added features to provide more power and faster charging time for photographers.

Those visiting the trade show at the NEC got the chance to see the unit in action as well as learning about its all-new features through visiting the Kenro stand in Hall 9 Stand L2.

Compared to its predecessor, the core boosting circuit of the Nissin Power Pack PS 8 has been redesigned in order to reduce heat, and now uses high-strength plastic instead of metal housing for the body. As a result, its size is now more compact whilst not compromising on performance. For maximum versatility, belt buckles and a shoulder strap have also been incorporated into the pack for convenient use at any time.

Another key feature added to the new PS 8 version is its exclusive battery cartridge design. Introduced for the first time to a Nissin power pack, its design greatly increases the battery capability whilst also helping to decrease its overall weight, solving a number of key issues that can be encountered by using power packs. The number of flashes per charge has also been increased compared to its previous model, providing peace of mind that the PS 8 will go the distance.

Other new features include the addition of an LED indication lamp. When the battery level reaches 30%, it turns from “green” to “red” to “flashing red” to indicate the battery is nearly discharged, providing reassurance that the user will never be caught by surprise at an important shoot.

The sophisticated design of the new PS 8 now includes a USB charging socket which supports DC 5V output to provide maximum charging solutions for the photographer on-the-go.

Other features of the Nissin PS 8 Power Pack:

Output sockets: Flash external power socket x 2 (same as PS300), USB (Type A, power output only) x 1 Output voltage: DC 320V Flash Charging time: 0.5 – 0.7 sec (full power illumination) Battery type: Ni-MH battery pack Battery life (Approx): 550 times (full power output) Battery level indication: LED type (100 – 30%: green, Lower than 30%: red, Battery low: blinking red) Accessories: Power supply cable, Ni-MH battery pack charger, strap, Soft case (Rainproof)

Dimensions: 200(H) x 110(W) x 35(D)mm / 7.9(H) x 4.3(W) x 1.4(D) inches Weight: 761g/27 oz (with Ni-MH battery pack)

Kenro managing director Paul Kench commented: “Nissin have taken every consideration of using a power pack into account to create the superb PS 8 version. Photographers need a pack that they can rely on and the PS 8 gives incredible reliability, thanks to the newly added features.”

The new Nissin PS 8 Power Pack is compatible with Canon, Nikon and Sony digital SLR cameras and is available now with a suggested retail price of £165 (incl VAT).
