Kenro the official UK distributors of Nissin Flash Guns, has announced the Nissin i40 - 'love mini' compact flash gun that also has a built-in video light.
The pocket size i40 weighs just 203g but is capable of filling in shadows on even the sunniest of days and is great for travelling. Features include a flash output of GN40 at 105mm and the ability to tilt the head horizontally 180° to right and left and up 90° making bounce shooting more arbitrary and increasing the number of angles that can be used.
With an auto adjust zoom ranging from 24mm-105mm and a built-in diffuser giving 16mm lens coverage, the i40 is also suitable for close up photography. The new model is also equipped with a LED video light function providing 9 steps of output level adjustment and a soft box is supplied to soften the output and reduce shadows. It also features a sturdy metal hot shoe with quick release.
Other functions include high-speed synchronization (supporting up to 1/8,000 seconds shutter speed), wireless TTL mode and a simple operation panel with two selector dials controls: Function dial and a Power dial, making it a perfect flash for beginners.
The flash is powered by 4x AA batteries and has an SRP of £204 including VAT. The Nissin i40 is available now in Nikon and Canon fit, with new style Sony, Four Thirds and Fujifilm fits coming soon. For more information take a look at the Kenro website
