Kenro has announced the UK launch of the new Di700 flashgun from Nissin, which features rotating lock release buttons and auto zoom coverage of 24-200mm.

The Di700 flashgun debuted

at what was to be the last Focus on Imaging show in March of this year,

demonstrating 180º of horizontal rotation and an expanded 7º of downward tilt. 

One feature

that sets the Di700 apart is its external power socket, unique in flashes of

its category. Kenro says that

operating the flash with the new Nissin Power Pack PS 8 (sold separately) will

greatly decrease recycle time – the firm claims a minimum of just 0.1sec.

This feature is

supported by the Di700’s impressive synchronisation, which allows for use of shutter speeds of up

to 1/8000sec.

The Di700 has a colour temperature of 5600K, and also features wireless connectivity and an AF-assist

beam with an effective range of 0.7-6m.

The Nissin

Di700 is available for Nikon and Canon and has a suggested retail price of

£195. For more information, visit or call 01793 615836.
