Kenro, the UK distributor for the acclaimed range of Nissin flash equipment, has launched the Nissin Di622 Mark 11 Speedlight. This new addition to Nissin’s range is an upgraded version of the popular Di622 that has served photographers so well since its launch in 2007. The Mark 11 model features a number of improvements including wireless TTL, and MY TTL. The unit also comes with a useful external X Sync Socket.

Another major advance of the new model is the way exposure compensation is controlled. It is now easy to adjust this via the back panel on the flash, this compares with the original version that required exposure compensation to be controlled in the camera.

The Nissin Di622 Mark 11 is a high power flash unit, with a Guide No. of 62 (metres) at ISO200 with the reflector in the 105mm position. It is powered by four AA batteries and boasts a recycling time of just 5 seconds with new batteries. The Slave facility on the Di622 Mark 11 synchronises to pre-flash systems, traditional single flash and to wireless remote flash systems.

Kenro managing director Paul Kench made this comment: Nissin launched the Mark 11 at Photokina in September and the new model attracted lots of attention. Im delighted that this upgraded version is now available to UK photographers, Im sure they will appreciate its great new features.

Available now, with an RRP of £224.95, the unit comes with either a Canon or Nikon fitting and the relevant versions are compatible with Canon’s E-TTL, E-TTLII system, and Nikon’s i-TTL.
