Kenro Introduces Ultra Compact New Nissin Flash

News Image
Kenro Ltd has announced that the i60A, a new ultra-compact, high-power flash from Nissin, will be coming to the UK this summer.

Weighing in at just 300g and less than 4.5 inches high, it boasts a guide number of 60, making it the smallest and lightest in the high-power portable flash market segment.

With its advanced engineering and ground-breaking design, it is no wonder that the new Nissin i60A has just been awarded the title of 'Best Portable Flash' at the TIPA Awards 2016.

A TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) endorsement is one of the highest accolades in the industry. TIPA member magazines range in content and goals, so the award voting process benefits from a wide range of expertise.

Editors of TIPA member magazines vote independently, taking into account innovation, use of cutting-edge technology, design and ergonomics, ease of use, and price to performance ratio. Only truly deserving products can win TIPA Awards, and that is why they are so prestigious.

This is Nissin's fourth TIPA award in as many years, with the Nissin MG8000 Extreme, the i40A and the Nissin Air System all being previous winners of the best portable lighting system category.

The 2.4 GHz wireless i60A will be available for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Four Thirds and Fujifilm mirrorless and professional compact cameras, and is fully compatible with the Nissin Air System. Various slave settings offer other flexible optical wireless flash options.

The zoom range can be adjusted automatically or manually from 24-200mm, and the flash comes equipped with a built-in diffuser that gives 16mm lens coverage. A soft box specially designed for the flash head is included to soften light output and reduce shadows, and the bounce card can be extended and retracted even when the soft box is in place. The Nissin i60A also has a video light function, with 9 steps of output level adjustment and a usage time of up to 3.5 hours.

As well as operating on 4 AA batteries, the i60A can also be connected to an external power source to reduce the flash recycle time during constant high power output.

The i60A is Nissin's highest-spec ultra-compact to date, and is sure to be much in demand from photographers when it launches this summer.
