The Di466 has been developed for digital SLR cameras with the latest TTL flash control technology. Two models are available, type C for Canon Cameras utilizing E-TTL and E-TTL11 technology and type N for Nikon Cameras with iTTL.

This versatile unit features a guide number of 33m (108ft) at 100 ISO. Flash exposure compensation is provided in six steps by half stop increments of -1.5, -1.0, -0.5, +0.5, +1.0, +1.5 by controlling a switch on the back panel.

When on manual power the flash can also be triggered wirelessly. The zoom head diffuser is motorised and will cover a lens range of 16-70mm (24-105mm on film SLR cameras). It also incorporates a fill in reflector and wide-angle diffuser and a built in colour filter guide.

For ease and speed of use the batteries are held in a convenient battery cartridge where the battery contacts are all aligned in one direction and is also supplied with spare cartridge.

Says Paul Kench, Kenro managing director: “This is a great addition to the Nissin range and is a serious contender in the mid-range flash gun arena. Nikon and Canon digital camera owners are encouraged to try out one of these guns at their local dealer… the feature set and build quality make them excellent value for money.”

The Di466 is compatible with the following Canon cameras, EOS 300D, EOS 400D, EOS 350D, EOS 30D, EOS 20D, EOS 5D, EOS 10D, EOS 40D, EOS 1D and EOS 1Ds. It can also be used with these Nikons, D40, D50, D70, D70s, D80, D200, D300, D2H, D2Hs, D2X, D2Xs and D3.

Nissin has been a world-class manufacturer of high quality electronic flash units for over 40 years. The Di466 has a RRP of £129.99 inclusive of VAT and is available now from major photographic dealers.

  1. Di466 is a great flashgun BUT it lacks a PC socket, which is a pity. You can’t use a hotshoe to PC lead with it eather as the centrepin with the outside terminal do not trigger the flash. This means it can’t be used with a radio slave receiver. That’s a real disappointment. I spoke to Kenro about it and they couldn’t work it out either. So, potential buyers, be aware of this.

  3. Good day Sir! I bought a Nissin Di466 and i have a Canon 1000D. After several shots the entire system hang. My camera keeps on blinking and cannot take a shot. I have to remove the battery of my canon and after putting it back, I could use my camera again but will experience the same problem after several shots. I borrowed an original canon flash and there seems to be no problem. Can you please help me. Thanks

    • Hope you have solved the problem Gary. We have a Sony model here now to test, but it doe not show any similar problem. Nissin don’t use exactly the same protocols as the original maker. I guess this kind of conflict can happen, just as it can with third party lenses. The error you describe more often happens with lenses.
