MG 60: flash from Nissin for mirrorless cameras

Posted on

Back in October, Nissin introduced a new MG60 flash for Nikon, Sony and Canon mirrorless cameras with a built-in 2.4Ghz wireless NAS synchronizer. The Nikon Z version was supposed to be the first to go on sale in December, but the company announced that it was postponing this deadline to January 18. The company cites the shortage of components as the reason for the delay in production.

Main features of MG60:

  • the leading number is 60 (at ISO 100 / 200 mm) and 35 (at ISO 100 / 200 mm)
  • power supply — all types of AA sources, including lithium-ion and Ni-MH batteries
  • minimum recharge time — 1.2 seconds (lithium-ion battery) and ≈ 3 seconds (nickel-metal hydride AA battery)
  • supported operating modes — TTL, compensation in the range of ±2 EV in 1/3 EV increments, manual mode with the ability to adjust the pulse from 1/256 to 1/1 in 1/3 EV increments, HSS (FP sync) up to 1/8000 s, rear curtain synchronization and wireless control of other functions
  • built-in NAS synchronizer allows you to control the flash at a distance of up to 100 m
  • Head tilt angle: 90 degrees up, 180 degrees left and 180 degrees right
  • External dimensions ≈ 116 x 73 x 93 mm
  • Weight ≈ 390 g (without batteries).

The flash is equipped with an LED modeling light, equipped with a flash holder, a filter holder and a wide-angle diffuser. An interesting feature of the device is the presence of a slot for microSD memory cards. With its help, the user can update the firmware independently.
