Excerpt: First, I love the compact size and that it takes four AA batteries. This is its biggest feature. Second, the variety of settings is excellent and pretty self-explanatory. The LED light for video is also nice to have. However, things that could be better are: (1) the power dial on the right is much too loose; (2) the red autofocus assist light is much too bright and obtrusive compared to what I'm used to with Canon flashes; (3) the settings are very hard to see in a dark...
Excerpt: I use the i40 with my Nikon D600. I brought the flash for an upcoming trip, but when a friend asked me to take photos of his wedding, i used the i40. It performed well, indoors and out, and was fully compatible with the D600. It may not be as powerful as a larger flash, but it is a great compromise.
Excerpt: I am using Nikon D610 - it works with D610 wireless Commander just fine!!! - it is super SMALL and LIGHT. - it's controls at the back is REALLY easy to understand & to use. - it has constant light for video. - it comes with Diffuser, Stand and carry bag.
Excerpt: This is an amazingly versatile, yet easy to operate flash. It is refreshing to be able to control the flash's myriad functions without digging around in a menu. The video light is an interesting plus. I am very pleased with this product.
Excerpt: having rented the nikon sb 400 & sb 700 before purchasing this flash gave me a better perspective in regards to size, weight and performance that i'm looking for my nikon d7000 plus it has quick release like all nikon speed lights. I would have gave it 5 stars but there's no features for slow or high speed sync but overall i'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Excerpt: I've owned and/or used most of the recent Nikon flashes. My favorite has been the incredible SB 700 and the more limited little SB 400. The Nissin i40 is a blend of the two. It's a whole lot smaller and lighter than the SB 700 and a tad bigger than the SB 400. Its brilliance is its simplicity. A lot of options with no complicated menus to learn and remember. Plus the video LED. I've only taken it for a few test drives but I'm already in love with it.
Excerpt: Finally someone has come out with a small compact flash that has manual features and rotates 180 degrees. The diffuser is built in and there's a front couple of LED's for video work, although it would be nice if these could be used as fill when bouncing. 4 AA's is perfect.
Summary: Die geringe Größe und die Leistung des Blitzes sind super. Passt perfekt zu meiner Alpha 6000. Alle bisherigen Blitzgeräte fand ich zu groß. Die Bedienung mit den zwei Drehrädern ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, sollte man vorher einen Blitz mit Display gehabt haben. Man gewöhnt sich aber schnell daran und dann ist das Bedienkonzept gar nicht mal schlecht. Verarbeitungs- und Materialqualität sind sehr gut.
