A Powerful Multi-Purpose Flash for Event Photographers, On or Off-Camera
The Nissin MG10 is a powerful (GN 80, 165 w/s) multi-purpose flash designed for professional wedding and event photographers.
The versatile MG10 can be quickly attached to a light stand for off-camera lighting using its built-in 1/4-20 thread, or mounted to your camera using the included quick release ‘L’ bracket when on-camera flash is required. The lightweight magnesium alloy ‘L’ bracket enables height adjustment and mounting to camera left or right.
The Nissin MG10 incorporates a remote shutter release into the flash grip, allowing remote wireless camera triggering.
Superior Heat Resistant Design and Materials
The Nissin MG10 delivers professional power (GN 80 meters, 165 w/s) and uncompromising rapid-fire performance. Its design incorporates venting for rapid heat dissipation, heat resistant components and materials, and dual quartz flash tubes to support continuous high power flashes.
Ultra Fast Recycle Time with External Battery Pack or Li-on Batteries
Connect the Nissin MG10 to the Nissin PS8 external battery pack (not included) when ultra fast 1.5 second recycle times are required for high volume wedding and event photography. The MG10 uses a Sony style cable to connect with the PS8 battery pack for use with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, and Olympus/Panasonic cameras.
High capacity 26650 lithium-ion batteries (not included) can also be used to power the Nissin MG10. These high capacity lithium-ion batteries deliver fast 2.8 second recycle times without the inconvenience of carrying the additional weight of an external battery pack.
Nissin's patented variable battery system also accommodates standard AA batteries (not included) when high performance flash recycle times are not needed. Use of AA batteries to power the MG10 delivers 3.5 second recycle times for full-power shots.
High-Speed Sync (HSS) to 1/8000
The Nissin MG10 is high-speed sync (HSS) capable to 1/8000 second when shooting in TTL or Manual mode (1/1 to 1/32 power).
HSS gives you the freedom to shoot with larger apertures when a shallow depth of field is desired, even when shooting in bright sunlight, i.e. f/2.8 up to 1/8000 second.
Wireless Radio Transmitter / Receiver
The Nissin MG10 features an 8 channel 2.4 Ghz wireless radio receiver that supports a range up to 300’ when paired with the wireless radio Nissin Air 10s Commander or Nissin MG80 Pro (set to Commander Mode). When paired with the Nissin Air 1 Commander the MG10 supports a range up to 100’.
Premium Professional Build Quality
The Nissin MG10 was designed to be a multi-purpose on or off-camera workhorse for high volume wedding and event photographers. Its heat resistant design, heavy duty shell, and dual quartz flash tubes mean that the MG10 will keep helping to create images long after other flashes fail.
LED Modeling Light
The Nissin MG10 incorporates an 8 watt LED modeling light built into the flash head. When the MG10 is used off-camera, the modeling light can be controlled from the Nissin Air 10s Commander, or MG80 Pro (set to Commander Mode).
Accessories Included with the Nissin MG10
Included with every Nissin MG10 is a quick-release camera mount bracket, lithium-ion battery magazine, AA battery magazine, professional ball head, and external diffuser.
Nissin MG10 Flash Compatibility
