The Nissin MG8000 Extreme flashgun for Canon features the world’s fastest “Machine Gun” strobe. Nissin has developed a new ceramic insulation for the inside of the gun as well as a unique quartz-based flash tube which ensures the unit remains cool, even in extreme use conditions. In testing, the MG8000 produces over 1000 full flashes without any fear of overheating; that’s three times more than a general flash. The new unit boasts an impressive recycle time of just three seconds for the first 200 shots, and then five to seven seconds for subsequent frames. The main features of the MG8000 are a maximum guide number of 60 (ISO100, 105m), bounce and swivel head, rotating colour LCD screen E-TTL/E-TTLII metering, fill in flash, external power pack capability and USB connectivity for upgrades.

Functions – TTL, Manual/Av, Multi Flash
TTL: Supporting Canon E-TTL/E-TTL II or Nikon i-TTL/i-TTL-BL. The flash output is automatically controlled by the camera but the flash exposure value can be compensated manually.
Manual: Flash power can be adjusted manually across 22 levels, from full power to 1/128 power at 1/3 stops. The distance to the subject is shown in the display in accordance with the aperture value set on the camera.
Av priority: The flash output can be automatically controlled by the photo sensor built into the flash unit instead of TTL metering. The F. Stop can be set from F1.4~F16. The distance at the F-stop set on the flash and camera is shown in the display.

The MG8000 Extreme Wireless TTL system supports both Canon and Nikon wireless TTL systems. The MG8000 Extreme can be used jointly with Canon and Nikon original flash as either Master or Remote (Slave).

The MG8000 Extreme provides an extra fill-in flash (GN12) situated just below the main flash. This small flash gives a fill-in light while bouncing the main flash. Bouncing the light may cast shadows on the underside of a subjects face, and this fill-in flash helps to remove them. The power ratio ofthe Fill-in Flash can be set from 1/1 to 1/128
TTL exposure levels are accurately calibrated for standard balance in accordance with Nissin’s standard. If however any adjustment is required, or if you like to set your own prefered level, it can be adjusted from +3Ev. to -3Ev. by 1/3 steps.
