Mastering light is the quickest way to gaining more professional results from your digital camera. A shortcut to achieving this is to add an accessory flashgun, making it a fantastic investment. The Nissin Di622 Mark II offers quick and easy results for Canon, Nikon and Sony camera owners, with Guide Number: 44m, 145ft. (ISO 100), 62m, 205ft. (ISO 200).
The Nissin Di622 Mark II lets even those inexperienced in using accessory flash get professional results almost instantly. It's simply a case of clipping the flashgun on the camera, switching it on and releasing the camera's shutter button, whereupon the flash fires and its light is automatically controlled by the camera and the dedicated flash TTL system.
The less experienced may only imagine flash needs to be used at night or in poor light. But, on the contrary, flash can be very effective when used in broad daylight too. Utilise it to eliminate shade or shadows for example, and use fill-in flash to sharpen the appearance of your subject. Freeze motion or introduce attractive catch lights in the eyes when taking portraits. Create contrast, but moreover enjoy experimenting with flash and check the results instantly on the back of your camera.
Want a flash that's future proofed? To avoid the possibility of your flash not working when you introduce a new camera to your set up Nissin offers a firmware upgrade service for its Di622 Mark II flashgun, providing a service terminal to upload the latest software*. A charge for the firmware update service will apply, according to area. *The new camera has to be the same make as your previous camera.
The Nissin Di622 Mark II is compatible with Canon's E-TTL, E-TTLII system, Nikon's i-TTL and Sony ADI/P-TTL system. These digital TTL flash systems control the flash's light with greater precision and stability.
Thanks to a built-in wide angle diffuser, the Nissin Di622 Mark II can cover a lens focal range from 14mm to 70mm (with a traditional 1.5x multiplication factor). When using longer lenses the position of the flash head reflector stays at 70mm. The head turns 90° upwards and 270° horizontally to enable the light to be bounced for creative effects as desired. To enable fill-in flash, the flash head provides a small reflection panel.
The Nissin Di622 Mark II offers a wireless remote flash system enabling it to be used as a slave unit. Thereby users can enjoy creative flash photography with multiple light from varied directions.
The power of the flash can be controlled with TTL flash level compensation. Whereas the overall exposure is controlled by the camera's EV compensation function, the flash can compensate for the exposure of the main subject only, so that in other words it has little impact on the background. The flash power level can be adjusted from -1.5EV through +1.5EV by 0.5EV steps.
The TTL flash power is pre-set in the factory. Users can however tweak this to their heart's desire, using exposure levels from +/- 0.75 EV in 0.25 EV increments, and set this as their own personal standard.
Although the Nissin Di622 Mark II can be used in conjunction with your camera's hotshoe, it can also be used without it. For example some cameras provide an X-terminal flash synchronisation contact instead of a hotshoe. Thus this Nissin additionally provides an X-terminal socket.
A Guide number of 44 (ISO 100) is obtained at the reflector position for 105mm focal length lens, and 45 at 35mm.
The angle of light distribution is automatically adjusted according to the lens' focal length. Thanks to a high quality stepping motor the lens movement is traced accurately at the same speed as that of the camera manufacturer's own flash.
The Nissin Di622 Mark II has a dual energy saving system that enters sleep mode if not used for five minutes. This is reset with a touch of the shutter button or any button on the flash unit. The unit will also automatically power down if unused for 30 minutes. However when the flash is set to slave mode, this 'sleep' mode is cancelled and the unit will not automatically turn itself off until 60 minutes have elapsed.
The Nissin Di622 Mark II offers six selectable power settings, ranging from full power at Guide Number 44 down to 1/32 power in 1.0 EV increments.
In darkness or low light the Nissin Di622 Mark II emits a red light to enable the camera's focus sensor to more easily and accurately determine focus on the subject.
The Nissin Di622 Mark II is compatible with either Canon's FE lock or Nikon's FV lock system. Refer to your owner's manual for details.
Where rear curtain synchonisation is offered by Canon and Nikon models the Nissin Di622 Mark II follows the lead of the camera's command signal.
A feature enabled in conjunction with Nikon cameras only, whereby a small flash beam is automatically produced for close up portrait shots, to prevent the 'devil eyed' phenomenon.
The flash comes with a case and a flash stand which is ideal for using the flash off camera.
