The Nissin i40 has provided a powerful option (GN40@105mm) for photographers looking for a small, easy-to-pack flash to bring along with their mirrorless cameras.
Two simple selector dials provide quick and easy control over settings.
The Nissin i40 Compact Flash is available in Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Panasonic/Olympus (Four-thirds) and Sony versions. The Nissin i40 supports each system's full TTL capabilities.
The i40 features full manual control and a range of modes for getting the look you desire from your lighting. These include slow-speed, high-speed, 1st and 2nd curtain synchronization in addition to variable power from 1/1 to 1/256. The flash runs on 4 AA batteries and includes an external diffuser, soft case, and stand.
For control of the light during use, the flash head is able to tilt upwards 90° and can rotate 180° in both directions, giving you complete 360° coverage. There is also optical wireless functionality which will allow you to implement this flash off-camera in combination with other units.
