Powerful Flash for 4/3 Olympus

By

from Miami  -  Photo Enthusiast

Provides plenty of light, Big difference from the small flah provided with the Flash, affordable only thing missing is being able to bounce in the vertical direction. Great addition to Olympus PEN.

Nissin Di466 FT

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

The flash is designed for 4/3rds format cameras. It has a guide number of 33 at 105mm (ISO 100). It has a power zoom from 12mm to 53mm. It takes 4AA batteries and alledgely recycles in 3.8 seconds. Using Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries it recycles instantly. The documentation is a small card with very small print. The 2 year warranty is administered by Minox USA. It did not work properly with my Olympus E510, but perfectly with the E-P3. As a alave it works with practically any camera that has a flash. The flash has automatic TTL, manual, and slave 1 or 2. The flash has a built-in diffuser and white reflector. Because of its fliminess do not use the white reflector without the diffuser. The bounce head only rotates upwards not side to side.

Excellent Alternative to Canon 430ex II

By

from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Pro Photographer

I purchased the Di466 as a fourth flash to fire as a slave for wedding receptions, so I have 3 flashes on stands. What surprised me is that the Di466 will fire with the Canon 430EX acting as master. (The 430EX's on the other hand will only slave fire with a 580EX as master.) So if you want multiple flashes and don't want to spend another $450 for the 580EX II as a controller, grab a couple Di466's and a 430EX, or even the Di622. Also, I notice absolutely no difference in flash strength between the Canon 430EX II and the Nissin Di466. A minor drawback is that the flash head has limited rotation. But that's not a problem when it's on a stand. The pull-out reflecting card is also a bit too small. Overall, a great flash for the price.

Works with e-TTL, nice canon flash

By

from Gator Country, FL  -  Semi-Professional

Tested on Digital Rebel-XT, G7, G10. All worked fine w/ camera controlled flash exposure adjustments. Worked fine on Canon EOS-3 and EOS-1V Film Cameras. It even worked on Pentax K1000 in manual mode. No wireless e-TTL control. I got this for an add-on flash for a G-10 and it doesn't dissapoint. Smaller than regular flash, its a good size for the rangefinder-size G10. Generally, it works well and in e-TTL mode seems to recycle quickly. However @ Full-Flash in Manual mode recycle time starts to slow. Slave works, focus-assist and manual adjustments are good. One thing that is strange about this flash is when I hand-hold it tethered to a camera via e-TTL cord, the flash needs to be held in the upright vertical position to fire at designated flash exposure. If you hold flash upside down or less than 90º on its side, the flash becomes extremely weak - which is odd. However, generally, a good small inexpensive flash for canon cameras. I feel the construction will require some babying, but so far I like this flash. It's very versatile. Mr.Adai has pic on flickr -[@]

Questions about this item:

Rithvik Y  Can I use this flash with Nikon D5100 DSLR ???
ALEXANDER L  While I do not own that particular Nikon model, I am sure the speedlight will work on it. I have a Di466 and a Di866. And am very pleased with both products. I use them on three Nikons; a D60, a D90 and a D3. I think the Di466 is a fantastic bargain. It gives good results, and is quick and easy to use... An on/off switch, a switch to adjust the EV value and a button to control whether it will be used as a master or slave to another flash unit. The466 also works very well as a slave to my Di866. I also own a small Nikon flash, the little 400 model. Sometimes I use in on camera in bounce flash to trigger my Di466, which is off camera on a light stand. But I would sell my Nikon flash in a heartbeat and replace it with another Di466! I never thought I would say that because I am a huge Nikon fan. I have eight lenses and all of them are Nikons. The only product I like more is the Di866 because I really like the versatility of the sub flash.
Louis M  Hello, Is this speed flash compatible with NIKON D3100 camera? Please let me know, Thanks
PAUL L  Yes in will work on a D3100 on camera but will not work off camera by way of a cable. But I prefer my nikon 700, more light and range.
