Nissin Di466 flash now available for Four Thirds cameras
Kenro, the UK distributor for Nissin flash equipment, has announced the award winning Nissin Di466 Professional Speedlite is now available for Four Thirds System DSLR cameras.
This new generation model comes in either black or white and is packed with features including TTL Exposure compensation from -1.5EV to +1.5EV by 0.5EV steps and Slave Remote Flash for either analogue or digital flash systems. The bounce head on the unit turns upward to 90 degrees with click-stops at 0, 45, 60, 75 and 90 degrees.
The Di466 comes with ŒMY TTL‚, a feature exclusive to Nissin that enables the user to customize their own TTL exposure level settings. The unit has a guide number of 33m at 53mm focal length (ISO 100m/ft ) and is firmware upgradable.
„The original model that came with either a Canon or Nikon fitting proved a huge hit so I‚m delighted the Di466 is now available to users of Four Thirds DSLR‚s too.'' says Kenro managing director, Paul Kench. „The flash produces the same colour as sunlight which makes it really useful for daylight fill-in photography. It‚s the perfect choice for professional and advanced photographers.‰
