Kenro is now the first store to offer the powerful Nissin MG8000 Extreme, a flash gun which will not overheat even after shooting one thousand photos.
Nissin has announced the availability of its latest flash, the MG8000 Extreme. This flash gun is available as of today in the United Kingdom with further markets to be revealed in the following weeks. The Nissin MG8000 Extreme flash has been expected for some time, thanks to its great features including 3-second recycling time, external diffuser, and a swiveling LCD display.
Lots of features in a big package
Nissin’s latest flash gun comes packed with a metal shoe, several modes support – including TTL, manual, AV and strobe – and an extra front flare. It’s weighing 400 grams, so you’re going to add a lot of weight to your Nikon or Canon cameras.
Its Nikon / Canon compatibility is extended with wireless TTL flash controllers, digital / analog flares, E-TTL / E-TTL II / i-TTL and the PS-300 battery pack. According to Nissin, the MG8000 can recycle after 3 seconds, but only for the first 200 photos. After that, the recycle time will increase up to 5 or 7 seconds.
The Nissin MG8000 Extreme flash features a USB port, which means it can be synced with all USB devices. Last but not least feature is the guide number, which stands at 60 at 100 ISO and 105mm zooming position.
Pricey but well worth it
For the moment, the Nissin MG8000 Extreme flash gun is available only through Kenro and only in the UK. The price stands at £545.40, which may seem a little bit expensive to most users, however, professional photographers will not want to miss this opportunity.
Nissin is the first company to develop a very different quartz flash tube. Although we’ve seen something like it before, Nissin’s idea is unique and it will make sure the flash gun remains cool even in high temperature conditions. The manufacturer confirmed that the MG8000 flash gun will not overheat when shooting 1,000 consecutive photos.
