2.0 out of 5 stars Produced good results until it stopped working, 5 Feb 2012

This review is from: Nissin Di622 Mark11 Canon Fit Speedlite with 3 Wireless Modes (PC Sync Socket and Nissin Original My TTL For Personal Settings) (Electronics)
I was initially really pleased with this speedlite which I purchased to use with my Canon EOS 500D.
It produced excellent results in dark conditions indoors and outdoors.
Bouncing the light of a ceiling allows portraits photos to be taken without any shadows behind the person/object.

Unfortunately, after only 4 months, the pilot light stopped turning green to indicate it's ready.
This meant that the flash no longer fired, even with new batteries.

I contacted Nissin and they advised I send it to them for repair.
However I did not want to incur an extra cost for P&P, so I returned it back to Amazon for a full refund.

After a quick search on Google, it seems like a few others have experienced similar problems.

Exactly the same thing has happened to me after 11 months, just within warranty, thankfully, and Amazon will be refunding me.
