We noticed a high-demand from our customers regarding the use of HSS function in Nissin products on Fujifilm cameras. Therefore, we have planned to provide firmware update service to existing Nissin flash owners in enabling the HSS function*.

For more details, please contact the local Nissin products distributor in your region. Their contact information is listed on your Nissin product packaging and/or your guarantee card.

*The firmware update process can be performed in the Nissin official service center only. Customers who are unable to bring the Nissin products to our service point may need to bear the delivery expense, this depends on the sales condition of reseller / distributor in the different regions.

We will strive to be sincerely able to respond as soon as possible.

Radio-Controlled Nissin di700A Flash for Fujifilm X available in Germany

nissin-di700a

The Nissin Di700A has just been released in Germany (sold via third party at Amazon.de). Thanks to the FR-reader, who dropped me this link to 43rumors.

We reported about the (radio controlled) Nissin Di700A flash for Fujifilm X back in March 2016 here. At that time, the flash was scheduled to be available for Fuji X within Summer.

Learn more about the Nissin Di700A at the official Nissin Page here.

Nissin: New Firmware for HSS on X-T2/Pro2 Coming “at a Later Date” + Air 1 Commander in November ** HSS with Cactus Beta Firmware (VIDEO)

nissin-i60

If you follow FujiRumors regulary, you’ll know that the Nissin i60 is in stock since mid September. You can find the Nissin i60 at Adorama, AmazonUS and BHphoto.

One of the issues, though, is that with the X-T2 (and the X-Pro2 FW 2.0) Fujifilm introduced new flash protocols (read also Fujifilm & Flash, The State of The Art here). This means that flashes like the Nissin i60 need firmware udpates in order to work properly.

Well, apparently Nissin is working on it. If I got the google translated version right, Nissin just said in an official press release to the Nissin i60 launch in Japan here (via dc.watch), that they are working on a firmware udpate, in order to unlock the HSS feature.

“[google translated] Regarding the for Fujifilm, with FP flash (high-speed synchro) non-compliant at the moment, is scheduled to correspond by firmware updates at a later date.

In addition, NAS commander “Air 1” Fuji Photo Film for Four for the Thirds, is expected to release November.

Regarding the Nissin i40, FR-reader Fujica explains that “you will need to send your flash to the distributor for the update as the i40 does not have a USB port.”

As shared here on FujiRumors back in September here, Cactus is also working on a new firmware and you just have to drop them an email to get access to the Beta Firmware. ZedProMedia did it, and shared his feedback on his youtube channel here.

Yes, the Nissin i60 Flash AIR System Will Be Compatible with Fujifilm Cameras

air system

When Nissin announced their Nissin i60 flash, it was not really clear, from the press release, if Fujifilm cameras will be compatible with the Air System. Moreover, some sites, like flashhavoc, didn’t mention the Fuji X compatibility.

However, stores like BHphoto, clearly listed the Fujifilm Nissin Air compatibility as one of the product highlights.

Confused? Don’t worry… at the official Nissin i60 product page, you can now see, that Nissin’s Air system will be compatible with Fujifilm cameras… of course only once Fujifilm released a firmware update to support it.

I remind you that the Nissin i60 was originally planed to hit the market in mid June (report here), but has now been postponed to late July, according to BHphoto.

DELAYED :: Nissin i60 Flash for Fuji coming late July !

ni60

And after the Fujifilm EF-X500 delay (report here), we now have another very nice flash for the Fuji X-system, that has been postponed: the Nissin i60!

It was originally planed to hit the market in mid June (report here), but has now been postponed to late July, according to BHphoto. But maybe that’s a bit too optimisitc. Nissin officially said the Sony Version will be available in August (via SonyAlphaRumors).

Nissin i60A for Fuji X now Available for Pre-Order (with Radio Receiver, according to BH & Adorama specs)

lasdjf

You can now pre-order the Nissin i60A at BHphoto here and Adorama here. It will be available in mid-June.

Reading the specs at BHphoto and Adorama, it seems that Nissin’s Radio TTL System will work also with Fuji X Cameras.

Last month, in their Nissin i60A overview, the site flashhavoc didn’t clearly mention the Fuji X compatibility with Nissin’s radio function, so that many X-shooters thought there will be no radio function support for X-cameras. But they maybe might have made an error, since BH and Adorama clearly mention the Nissin Air 2.4 Radio TTL System. But make up your own mind and check out Nissin’s official (google-translated) i60A press release here.

Nissin i60A product highlights (via BHphoto):

  • Nissin Air 2.4 GHz Radio TTL System
  • Compatible with Fujifilm TTL
  • HSS to 1/8000th (from Adorama)
  • Guide Number: 197′ at ISO 100 and 200mm
