Nissin i40 Flash for FourThirds and Sony
Nissin i40 Flash now available in Four Thirds and Sony fittings
Kenro, the official UK distributors of Nissin Flash Guns, has announced that the award-winning Nissin i40 – ‘love mini’ compact flash gun is now also available to work with Four Thirds format cameras such as Olympus and Panasonic, as well as new hot shoe style Sony cameras.
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.
TIPA awarded the Nissin i40 flash gun top honours in the ‘Best Portable Lighting System’ category in their 2014 Awards, and the i40 has also received the ‘Best Lighting Accessory’ accolade in the ‘Gear of the Year 2014’ Awards.
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 4 x AA batteries and has an SRP of £204 including VAT.
Comments Paul Kench, managing director of Kenro: “Small, powerful, and simple to use, this is a brilliant flash gun for photographers at all levels and especially ideal for travelling. As well as a great flash gun, the additional facility of a constant light source will enable those with video capability on their cameras to get the most out of them in darker conditions. Now it’s available in the Four Thirds and Sony fittings even more photographers can benefit from its features.”
The Nissin i40 is now available in Sony, Four Thirds, Nikon and Canon fittings, with Fuji fit coming this autumn.
