Nissin has good news for Sony users - Di866 Professional Speedlite now available in a Sony fit.
Kenro, the UK distributor for Nissin, has announced its acclaimed Di866 Professional Speedlite is now available in a Sony fit.
Initially launched in September 2009 with a Canon or Nikon fit, the Di866 is specifically designed for use with digital SLR cameras and comes with many ‘world’s first’ features. This new flash unit is simple to use and can also be fired wirelessly where it can be used as a master or receiver.
With a guide number of 60m (ISO 100 @ 105mm) the Di866 features Nissin’s original ‘My TTL’ user adjustable TTL light output level and is firmware upgradable thanks to an onboard USB port.
The gun also features high speed synchronisation and a fill in sub-flash (12m100 ISO), which is activated while the main flash is bounced and also has a built-in wide angle diffuser and catch-light reflector.
The flash gun comes with an auto-rotate colour display that stays upright whichever way the unit is tilted. The display utilises user-friendly icons to enable ease of operation.
“The Di866 has been a hit with photographers and journalists alike, with one reviewer describing the flash as 'the most powerful hotshoe flashgun available,' and I think everyone who uses the flash will agree with that statement,” says Kenro managing director, Paul Kench. “I’m delighted we are now able to offer this unit to Sony users.”
