Nissin NAS (Nissin Air System) Wireless

 What is the Nissin Air System (NAS)?

Nissin Air System

The Nissin Air System (NAS) is a 2.4Ghz radio transmitter system developed by Nissin Digital that allows photographers to control and trigger flashes remotely, with coverage up to 100 meters (328 feet), even around obstacles.  NAS allows for radio transmission IDs and separate channels to be set to prevent interference with other wireless devices.

Easy-to-Pair with Responsive Controls

NAS allows for quick and easy linking of flashes and controllers.  You can control TTL exposure compensation, manual output, and manual zoom of all linked flashes in real-time.  The settings will be instantly displayed on Nissin Di700A and i60A as they're changed.  The Nissin Air 1 Commander also has an AF assist light for shooting in low-light environments.


NAS is integrated into many Nissin Digital flashes, and NAS capability can be added to other flashes, including other flash brands, by adding Air R receivers.  The Nissin Air 1 Commander can control a mix of different flash versions using Nissin Air R receivers, including Canon, Nikon and Sony), in addition to the Nissin Di700 and i60A.  These mixed flashes can be controlled in manual or TTL mode.

High Speed Sync Support

NAS supports high speed sync up to 1/8000 of a second where supported by flash and camera limitations.  High speed sync's very fast shutter speeds allow flash to have more impact even in bright shooting situations.
