Great Bang For Your Buck

  • Excerpt: The Nissin Di466 is a great beginner flash system. It is easy to operate and to adjust the output settings. I'm mounting it on a micro four thirds Panasonic GF2. I like the images produced from bouncing the flash indoors particularly with low ceilings. Also, I attach parchment paper with a rubber band over the flash unit when I use it as fill. This technique works well in diffusing the direct light for portraits outdoors or indoors.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use

Nissin Di466 FT

  • Excerpt: The flash is designed for 4/3rds format cameras. It has a guide number of 33 at 105mm (ISO 100). It has a power zoom from 12mm to 53mm. It takes 4AA batteries and alledgely recycles in 3.8 seconds. Using Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries it recycles instantly. The documentation is a small card with very small print. The 2 year warranty is administered by Minox USA. It did not work properly with my Olympus E510, but perfectly with the E-P3.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Weak Output

as good as canon

  • Excerpt: I was really blown away when I opened the box to this flash. I thought I would get a product that was cheaply made. In fact this flash is very well made. I chose this flash because I wanted a backup for just in case my main flash failed. It is easy to control from the camera and it is easy to slave. However you will not be able to use it with a separate set of poppers. On a final note, the recycle time is slow, so I would not use it for fast action photography.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Powerful Output
  • Cons: Slow Recycling

Good starter flash

  • Excerpt: Have not had a chance to use it a lot since my purchase, but I found the flash controls to be easy to understand and implement. It seems to be well made (sturdy). I have practiced with it indoors and am very happy with the results. I think it is a very good choice for a starter flash.

Nice flash-but without instructions?

  • Excerpt: I got this for an Olympus OMD 4/3 camera. It works very well and has many features of considerably more expensive units. I discovered this after obtaining the owners manual off the internet. Apparently NISSIN does not include it in the package-an aggravating policy. There are multipurpose buttons that select certain features that are best referred to in the manual for full utilization.Otherwise a really useful flash of moderate output.

Nissin Speedlight for Nikon Di 466

  • Excerpt: Besides the ability to synch off shoe, this little big boy does everything you need for a quick fill in light when big guns are not available. It is easy to use and works with all Nikon D3000 functions in-synch. For the money, the best light-weight speedlight available. Definitely a recommend to other hobby/amateur photographers out there.

Great on Camera Flash

  • Excerpt: Very powerful little speedlight for the price point! The only complaint I have is it will ONLY work when attached to the hotshoe on a camera. It will not work with the wireless hotshoe trigger I have, yes it has an optical wireless trigger built in but those only work in perfect lighting conditions where the sensor can "see" whatever, infrared/flash, trigger it needs. I found it very odd that it also wouldn't work with an off camera TTL cord.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Powerful Output
  • Cons: No Sync Ability
