The pocket-sized powerful mini

The pocket-sized Nissin i400 weighs only 7.2 oz. (1), and is perfect for use as a fill-in flash even on the sunniest of days. Its compact dimensions make the i400 the ideal flash for family outings, indoor/outdoor shootings and is especially suitable for traveling. Professional functionality: Syncs up to 1/8000 sec. (3); flash output GN 40 at 105 mm; simple operation panel with two selector dials to operate the flash; flash head tilts up and rotates to make bounced lighting more versatile by utilizing more angles.

Selector dial - simple and innovative
The Nissin i400 has two selector dials, a function dial and a power dial. The small lamps indicate the current settings so that even beginners can quickly get started.

Professional flash head design
The flash head rotates 180° horizontally from left to right, and tilts upwards to 90° making bounce shooting more arbitrary and maximizing the angles that can be used.

Metal hotshoe and quick release button (3)
The i400 has a durable metal hotshot (not available for the Sony version due to limitation of the Multi Interface Shoe design) and features a quick release button. It is easy to attach to your camera and reduces the risk of damage caused by frequent or quick installation.

High-speed synchronization
Supports up to 1/8000 second shutter speeds. (2)

Automatic mode
Use this setting when you use your camera in the automatic mode. The camera and flash will communicate to produce the proper amount of flash output for the scene.

TTL flash level compensation
The power of the flash can be regulated using the TTL flash level compensation. Whereas the total exposure is controlled by the camera's EV compensation function, the flash can compensate for exposure on the main subject only, with little impact on the exposure of the background scene. The flash power level can be adjusted from -2EV to +2EV in 0.5EV steps.

Manual mode
This mode allows the user to determine the output of the flash and set it manually from full power, 1/1 , down to 1/256 power.

Four AA batteries (not included)
The i400 operates with 4 AA batteries. This lessens recycling time and reduces the need to change batteries frequently.
