The New Nissin MG10 Wireless Handgrip Flash


The new Nissin MG10 wireless flash has arrived and it packs 165Ws of power output and a guide number of 262' at ISO 100 and 200mm. Those are big numbers for a handheld, self-powered flash unit. Recycle time is 1.5 seconds. With a zoom coverage of 24-200mm, and a wider 18mm throw available when using the attached diffuser panel, the head can be rotated left and right 180° and can be pointed straight up with 90° of bend. This unit also incorporates an 8W LED modeling light, so you can preview your coverage and shadows. High-speed sync up to 1/8000 of a second is also provided. Powered by 8 AA batteries, the MG10 has a tripod socket at its neck for fixed-position mounting.

The MG10 is also fully compatible with the Nissin Air System (NAS), which allows the flash to work with the Wireless Air 10s TTL Commander and they are available together, as a kit. Featuring a 328' range, the Commander can control the TTL exposure, power, and zoom of up to 8 groups of other Nissin flashes, over 8 different channels. Compatible with Canon, Fujifilm, Micro Four Thirds, Nikon, and Sony, the Nissin MG10 and Air 10s Commander combine to bring powerful lighting setups to your studio or location shoot.



How can you adjust flash power in manual mode, when you are using the remote shutter button on the Nissin mg10 flash to trigger the camera? Whenever I try to adjust flash power, it always remains the same.



Page 15 of the user manual states that you can use the Channel dial to set the manual flash output while the flash is connected with a sync cable.
