Firmware Updates

Models with User-Upgradeable Firmware:

The newest Nissin Digital flash units and commanders have firmware that you can update by downloading a firmware file to your computer and updating the units using a micro SD card. 

Read instructions on how to update firmware for user-upgradeable Nissin Digital products such as the MG80 Pro, MG10, and Air 10s.

Models with Non User-Upgradeable Firmware (Excluding MF18):

Firmware updates for current, non user-upgradeable Nissin flash models are performed at our California location for Nissin Flashes purchased from an authorized US reseller.  This includes the Nissin Di700A, i60A, i40, i400, i600, Air 1, and Air R.

The customer is responsible for shipping the flash to be updated to ExpoImaging's California address.  In addition, there will be a $15 flat fee assessed to cover return shipping and handling.

Please send an email to info@expoimaging.com (or fill out our contact form) for instructions.  We will then send you the required form that you need to fill out and include with your flash when sending it to us for the firmware update.

Once your flash is received, it will be updated promptly and returned to you within 1-3 business days.

You can check the firmware version of your flash by following the instructions located on the manufacturer's website:  www.nissindigital.com

Nissin MF18:

The latest firmware versions for the MF18 are as follows:
Canon:  xx.xx.08.06 in 2018-Dec
Nikon:  xx.xx.10.05 in 2017-April
Sony:  xx.xx.51.51 release version

Unfortunately, the Nissin MF18 is one of the few flash units we are unable to perform firmware updates for here in our office.  We took over US distribution of Nissin in June 2019 and the tool / software used to update the MF18 is different from other Nissin flashes.  We are unable to perform those updates ourselves.  We must instead send them to Nissin Japan.

There is a $59.95 fee to update the MF18.

It typically takes 6-8 weeks from the date we receive the flash to the time that we can return it to you.

Please send an email to info@expoimaging.com (or fill out our contact form) for instructions.  We will then send you the required form that you need to fill out and include with your flash when sending it to us for the firmware update.

Discontinued Models with Non User-Upgradeable Firmware:

There is a $59.95 fee to update discontinued Nissin Flashes.  The following flashes must be sent to Nissin Japan for updates:  MG8000, Di866 Mk II, Di866, Di622 Mk II, Di622, etc...
