Air 1 Commander

For Canon, Nikon, Sony,
Fujifilm, Four Thirds


Nissin Air System Transmission

The Air 1 Commander is the perfect addition for wireless flash shooting either in a studio situation or on-location. When compared with the traditional optical wireless transmitters, the 2.4 GHz radio transmission is less susceptible to angle and obstacle limitations, providing a transmission distance of up to 98 feet. Transmission channels and radio transmission IDs can be set to prevent misfiring in the event of signal interference on the same channel.

Pair and control
When combined with the Di700A and/or the i60A, the TTL EV compensation, manual output & zoom settings made on the Air 1 will simultaneously be transmitted to the flash units. Original Canon, Nikon or Sony flash units can also be controlled by the Air 1 when used together with the Air R.

Flexible combinations
The Nissin Air 1 Commander can be combined to control original flash models (when combined with the Air R) and/or the TTL / manual settings of the Nissin Di700A and i60A to provide a near limitless variety of lighting possibilities.

Selector dial and color LED display
The combination of color LED display and selector dial provides the user with an extremely convenient way to take full control of the flashes paired within the NAS system.

Focus assist light
The focus assist light provides an additional source of light to assist the autofocus in low-light situations. (1)
