The Nissin Di466 Hot Shoe Flash for digital cameras features cutting-edge photographic technology for Auto Focus and TTL auto exposure systems, with precision and stability. The TTL flash power level is pre-set for reasonable exposures at the factory, however, users can reset the power to customize the flash to meet individual needs. This flash is easy to use and is packed with features such as variable power settings, an Auto Focus assist beam, and a power zoom that can tilt for easy bounce flash. It comes with a battery magazine system for quick power changes. The magazine has slots for all four batteries in the same direction for loading quickly, even in poor lighting. Additional magazines are available (not included).

For Use With Nikon Digital Cameras:
D3X / D3 / D2Xs / D2X / D2Hs / D2H / D700 / D300 / D200 / D90 / D80 / D70S / D70 / D5000 / D60 / D50 / D40X / D40

TTL Flash
Nikon i-TTL metering compatibility for precision and stability
Own TTL Value
The TTL flash power level is pre-set for reasonable exposure at the factory. You can, however, reset the power at the desired exposure level, in ±3/4EV by 1/4EV increments. The preset value is memorized as your personal standard after switching the unit off. This unique system for customizing your level settings, called "MY TTL", is a feature exclusive to Nissin. The usual TTL flash level compensation works based on this customized level.
TTL Flash Level Compensation
The power of the flash can be controlled with TTL flash level compensation. Whereas total exposure is controlled by the camera's EV compensation function, the flash can compensate for the exposure on the main subject only, with little impact on the exposure of the background scene. The flash power level can be adjusted from -1.5EV through +1.5EV by 0.5EV steps.
Battery Magazine
For quick battery loading, Di466 comes with a battery magazine system. A convenient battery magazine has the slots for all four batteries in the same direction, with an anti-reverse loading guide so that the batteries can be correctly inserted every time, even in poor lighting. An extra battery magazine is separately available.
Silent Oscillation
The oscillation circuit produces frequencies that are inaudible to humans. The sharp humming of the oscillator can cause irritation, which may be quite severe in certain settings.
Dual Program Wireless Remote
The wireless remote flash system of Di466 works for either analogue (single flash) and digital (pre-flash) flash systems. Variable power in six steps is available. Place the Di466 off the camera and the flash synchronizes with the master flash placed on your camera. This wireless remote flash system is called slave flash technology and is often used for a creative lighting efficiency. Use the camera's built-in flash, the manufacturers' original flash, or Di466 as the master flash. Place one or more Di466 flash units away from the camera. Off-camera flash photography offers a different lighting configuration. Use multiple Di466 flash units to achieve professional flash techniques.
Power Zoom & Turning Flash Head
Light distribution angle is automatically adjusted for the lens focal length. A high quality stepping motor sharply traces the lens movement with the same speed as that of the camera manufacturer's original flash. The flash beam covers the frame from 14mm (with a wide angle diffuser built-in) to 70mm of the digital lens. For a longer lens, the flash head reflector position stays at 70mm. It turns 90 degree upward for bounce lighting. The flash head also stores a small reflection panel for a fill-in shot. 1
Energy Saving System
The Di466 has a dual energy saving system. It automatically enters sleep mode when it's not in use for 5 minutes, and is reset with a touch of the shutter button or any button of the flash. If the unit is not in use for 30 minutes, it will automatically power off. With the flash unit set for slave mode, sleep mode is cancelled and the automatic turn off timing is prolonged to 60 minutes.
Variable Power
When selecting manual power operation, choose from one of the six variable powers for the best lighting effect. The power level is provided from full power down to 1/32nd power in 1.0Ev increments.
AF Assist Beam
In darkness or dim light conditions, the Di466 beams an orange LED light to create a sharp contrast to enable the camera's focus sensor to focus easily on the subject.
Color Filter Guide
The Di466 has a guide rail for filters. Color filters and density filters can slide into the slot provided at the front of flash window.
Flash Power Lock System
The Di466 is compatible with the cameras' FV lock system. Refer to the camera owners' manual for details.
Rear Curtain Sync. System
Nikon cameras set the flash for rear curtain sync photography. The Di466 follows the command signal of these cameras.
Firmware Update
A firmware upgrade service is available for the Di466, which provides a service terminal to upload the latest software. A charge for the firmware update service will apply, varying depending on the area.

      Very powerful little speedlight for the price point! The only complaint I have is it will ONLY work when attached to the hotshoe on a camera. It will not work with the wireless hotshoe trigger I have, yes it has an optical wireless trigger built in but those only work in perfect lighting conditions where the sensor can "see" whatever, infrared/flash, trigger it needs. I found it very odd that it also wouldn't work with an off camera TTL cord.

      This flash is fantastic. It is relatively small and light and is well worth the cost. I would give it five stars; however, I gave it one star because it is not compatible with manual lenses, such as pre-ai, ai, and ai-s lenses. You can put the flash in manual mode to use with a manual lens, but the screen will say that the "Flash is in TTL mode. Choose another setting or use a CPU lens." The flash tells the camera that it is using a TTL mode when it isn't, so it will not work with manual lenses. I use manual lenses 90% of the time, so this flash becomes useless for me. If you use all TTL lenses, which are lenses that meter and have autofocus and such things, this flash is absolutely fantastic and I strongly recommend it. But if you want to use it with manual lenses, it will not work so do not buy it.

      Comments about Nissin Di-466 Shoe Mount Digital Speedlight For Nikon AF Cameras with i-TTL:

      Inexpensive, bright speedlight for a great price. No frills design, lack of digital interface actually simplifies the learning curve for beginners. This is a great backup speed for pros and a first speed for beginners. Don't need to spend 500+ if u haven't shot added light before. Exceptional recycle on middle setting and worked well with 3rd party cable. Would recommend picking up a diffuser with this to complete the package.

        Besides the ability to synch off shoe, this little big boy does everything you need for a quick fill in light when big guns are not available. It is easy to use and works with all Nikon D3000 functions in-synch. For the money, the best light-weight speedlight available. Definitely a recommend to other hobby/amateur photographers out there.

                Bought the 466 for a Nikon D40 with a broken onboard flash. Well-built, lightweight, very powerful, well...you get the idea. I shot night time pics of a couple going to a VD Sweetheart dance. This flashgun lit up an alley as if it was broad daylight. Would purchase again in a heartbeat. Well worth the asking price and even better was the fact it was on sale $20 cheaper then normal.

                    Mounted this on a Nicon D90 in auto mode works great. But in other modes there seems to be a slight delay from the time the shutter is engaged and between the photo and flash. Taking action pictures this is not a good combination.
