Kissin’ Nissin

Nissin has just jumped into the ring with their announcement of a new ring flash at Photokina.

The Nissin MF18 (seen above) includes the following features:

Wide range of lens mount adaptation
Nissin MF18 supports a wide range of macro lens mount adaptors from 49 to 77mm.

Color and Auto Rotating Display
The color display will automatically rotate from horizontal to vertical as the flash is rotated and the user friendly six icon interface represents each of the operation mode– Auto, TTL, Manual, Multi, Wireless TTL (Master/Remote) and Custom Setting.

External Power Pack Port
Nissin MF18 supports Nissin Power Pack PS300, it can be used to speed up the recycling time of flashes.

I look forward to getting my hands on a test unit.

And speaking of flash, Nikon has announced a new speedlight…

Don’t know how the Nikon SB-700 will compare to the flagship SB-900, but I’m more than a little curious. Ostensibly it builds on the success of the SB-600 with a MSRP of $329.95.


Finally, I’ll be posting a mini review of the Tether Table here soon so stay tuned.
