Nissin MG8000 Extreme Wins TIPA Award

The Nissin MG8000 Extreme flash has been named 'Best Portable Lighting System' in the 2013 Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) Awards. Offered in both Canon and Nikon fit, the Nissin MG8000 Extreme sparked mass interest amongst the industry when shown for the first time at Focus-on-Imaging in March 2012 due to its unique quartz-based flash tube which ensures the unit remains cool, even in extreme-use conditions. When tested, the Nissin MG8000 can produce over 1000 full flashes without any fear of overheating, the company claims. The Nissin MG8000 Extreme boasts a recycle time of just 3 seconds for the first 200 shots, and then 5 to 7 seconds for subsequent frames, maintaining its guide number throughout the burst. Other highlights include an included external diffuser, tilt-swivel head, guide number of 60 (in metres at ISO 100/21° with the head zoomed to the 105mm position), full support for Canon’s and Nikon’s wireless TTL flash control systems, high-speed synchronisation and a stroboscopic flash mode. Weighing in at 400g, the Nissin MG8000 Extreme has a guide price of £545.40.

Nissin Press Release

'Best Portable Lighting System' awarded to the Nissin MG 8000 at TIPA Awards

Kenro, the official UK distributors of Nissin Flash Guns, is delighted to announce that the Nissin MG 8000 Extreme Flash Gun has been named 'Best Portable Lighting System' in the 2013 Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) Awards.

The Flash features the world's highest "Machine Gun" strobe, capable of producing over 1000 full flashes without any fear of overheating; three times more than a general flash.  Boasting an impressive recycle time of just three seconds for the first 200 shots, the Gun then takes only five to seven more seconds for subsequent frames, making it the ideal choice for fashion, wedding and reportage shooters who need a flash they can rely on.

Weighing in at 400g, the Nissin MG8000 is compatible with the E-TTL, E-TTL II (Canon) and i-TTL (Nikon) and features flash capabilities. The MG8000 can also be connected to a Nissin Power Pack which can speed up the recycle time to achieve even higher power and frequency of flash photography.

Paul Kench, managing director of Kenro, made this comment: "The MG 8000 has been very well received since its launch at Focus-on-Imaging 2012, and we are delighted with this commendation from the TIPA board. Nissin are renowned for their ability to create innovative flash guns that rival those of a higher price-tag and this TIPA award is a great tribute to that innovation."

The Nissin MG8000 Extreme Flash gun has a guide price of £456.00 including VAT and is available now.

  1. Used it first time yesterday on a job. Amazing, liberating experience not having to watch temp gage and waiting for an overheat shutdown. Good bye SB900,910 and 800 and such. Without the bulk of The Q. This is a game changer. My anxiety level is way down. No more flashless moments in the middle of the dancing or during outdoor formals. Wish I'd had this years ago. Too well kept a secret. Thank you Nissin!
