The latest range of stylish mirrorless
interchangeable lens cameras deserve a flashgun that matches their
finish and this latest unit from Nissin comes in a white finish to
match the Olympus E-P1 camera and complement a range of other Four
Thirds and Micro Four Thirds models.

Di466
(For Four Thirds 4/3) KEY FEATURES:

Nissin
original “MY TTL” Setting

The
TTL flash power level is pre-set for reasonable exposure at factory.
You can, however, reset the power

at
the desired exposure level, in +-3/4Ev. by 1/4Ev increments.

The
preset value is memorized as your personal standard after switching
the unit off.

The
usual TTL flash level compensation works based on this customized
level.

TTL
Flash Level Compensation

The
power of the flash can be controlled with TTL flash level
compensation.

Whereas
total exposure is controlled by the camera’s EV compensation
function, the flash can compensate

for
the exposure on the main subject only, with little impact on the
exposure of the background scene.

The
flash power level can be adjusted from -1.5EV through +1.5EV by 0.5EV
steps.

Dual
Program Remote Flash (Slave mode)

Wireless
remote flash system of Di466 works for either analogue (single flash)
and digital (pre-flash) flash

syste
with 6 steps power level available.
