Nissin Di600 Flash

The new Nissin Di600 flash has a power zoom range from 24 to 105mm with a maximum guide number of 44 at 105mm (ISO 100). The head rotates 90 degrees left and 180 degrees right. The head also tilts 90 degrees. The Di600 is compatible with Canon E-TTL, E-TTL II, Nikon i-TTL and Sony’s P-TTL auto flash systems.

In addition to the TTL mode, the Di600 can also be used as a slave unit with six-step light control, or as a wireless remote flash for Channel 1, group A, with an appropriate master flash. For those who like to control the power of the flash independently, the Di600 also offers a manual mode. Recycling time is a fast five seconds after a full power flash. The Di600 also has a built-in wide angle diffuser and bounce card.

Without sacrificing any functions, the Di600 has simplified the operation. It features nothing more than EV adjustment buttons, a mode selector button and test button on the back, which means it offers basic functionality even without TTL. And it operates on two pairs of AA batteries.

Distributed exclusively in America by MINOX USA, the new Nissin Di600 flash is now available for Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, and will be available for Sony later this fall. Price, $199.
