With the introduction of the Nissin i40 Nissin showed they are able to build a Speedlight that is compact, powerful and has a lot of functionality (you can find my review of the Nissin i40 here). The i40 is a perfect Speedlight for smaller cameras with its compact body, but sometimes you just need a little more power. For people that are looking for a compact Speedlight with a little more power and functionality Nissin has introduced the i60A, with a higher guide number and the Nissin Air System for wireless flashing built in to the body.
The most important specifications of the Nissin i60A:
Guide number 60 (ISO100 at 200mm);
Compatible with the 2.4 GHz. Nissin Air System;
Colour display to check the most important settings;
Built-in video light;
Optical wireless mode possible (the Nissin i60A reacts to flashes of the master Speedlight);
Built-in reflector-card and wide-angle diffuser (up to 16mm wide angle);
Powered by 4 AA-batteries and compatible with external battery packs;
Supports High Speed Sync (HSS) up to 1/8000th of a second shutter speeds;
Comes with a pouch, stand and softbox;
The Nissin i60A is available for Nikon, Canon, Sony and Micro Four Thirds. In this review I’ll tell you more about the Nissin i60A for Sony, and I’ve used it with my Sony A7. The Nissin i60A costs about 299 euro’s in the Netherlands, making it about 50 euro’s more expensive than the Nissin i40.
