Nissin Di700A reviews

Di700A Flash Kit with Air 1 Commander for Micro Four Thirds Cameras is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frustrating but ultimately amazing Flash Kit How complicated can a Flash be? Well, without any sort of directions or manuals, it definitely can be! My initial impression was that I received a lemon. The flash would work intermittently, would fire for awhile, but would stop working after changing modes, powering off, etc. I ordered this kit plus an extra Di700A flash, so I was alarmed to see both flashes were acting sporadic. Switching between my Panasonic G7 and G85 did not change anything. This was until I came to the solution due to my frustration... I was so frustrated that I jammed the flash real quick and a lot harder than I wanted to into the hot shoe, and I noticed a very different tactile sensation as it clicked in. To my amazement, neither flash exhibited the sporadic issues when inserted like this. Just to be sure (since at this point I was ready to return everything) I reinserted the flash not as hard (but not soft either) and sure enough sporadic issues. Both the G7 and G85 bodies need this stronger than normal insert for the Di700A to work properly, and with practice I have found the proper strength to insert it to work properly without fearing I am damaging either the flash or my camera. Now for the second frustration... Nothing in the instructions ever mentioned that HSS will be disabled if the flash not in a 90 degree angle (e.g. flash facing forward). Since I tend to point the flash up and bounce it off the ceiling and walls, HSS would never work. To complicate things more, using the Air commander allows you to have the flash point upwards and still work! After going through trial and error on my own (since the manual is so basic) I can finally enjoy and use this flash kit properly. I hope this helps other people, because it is actually a very good flash especially in TTL mode! I almost returned it due to horrible directions and lack of detail on its features...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works as advertised, but heavy and plasticky. The flash works according to specification. TTL and radio communication work great. It is basically the only solution available for micro four thirds which allows radio and TTL pairing between camera and flash. Unluckily, there are two things I really don't like about it: 1) The flash is really heavy, and it wobbles a bit on top of my Olympus OMD EM5 II, making the entire experience of carrying the flash on top of the camera pretty unpleasant. Moreover the entire camera feel really unbalanced with the flash on top of it. 2) The flash is pretty plasticky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would purchase again but hot shoe is too tight I previously purchased a Di700A flash kit for my Sony 6500. I found that it was very difficult because of the tightness of flash hotshoe fit to put on and take off the flash unit. I purchased a second Di700A unit for my panasonic gx85 and was hoping that the second flash unit would not be as difficult to put on/off. Unfortunately, it also was extremely difficult. I worry that I might damage the camera hot shoe. One great feature is that the Sony A1 controller can control both flash units. Similarly , the Panasonic A1 can talk to either off the camera flash units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sheer awesome! My first venture into off camera flash has been amazing with the Nissin system. Simple to operate. Allows me to adjust each flash output remotely on camera. I plan on getting the compatable i40 for on camera use w/ my small camera and still be able to add use it off camera if needed. A win for micro four thirds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for mFT Excellent off camera flash for my mFT cameras. Easy to setup and use. Doesn't encumber the use of the camera unlike other bulky systems. Build quality is top notch. Expandable for future growth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is just AWESOME! Works like a charm with my Panasonic G85. Wireless TTL and HSS. The flash unit is nice and the quality of light is amazing for this price!
