    This Nissin logo looks a lot like Nikon’s, accidentally?

  • Tony Bologna

    Wireless slave? Think it will work with Nikon’s CLS? Expected price?

  • taurui

    I don’t see the changes compared to the mk1 version

  • benjamin

    nissin makes cup noodles… =P

    • Ben

      LOL. That’s totally different company.

  • Oliver

    I need to get my hands on one of those! Looks awesome. Talking ’bout the noodles btw 😉

  • This one looks promising as my second off camera strobe to be used with umbrella.

  • Ken Elliott

    I don’t get it. The price is HIGHER than BH’s price for a Nikon SB700. Why bother? I know Nikon’s flash will work correctly with Nikon’s cameras, but third party flashes have been known to have issues at times. And if I had problems with the Pocket Wizard FlexTT5, I know PW will resolve the issue if I’m using a Nikon flash, but they might not with a third party.

    What am I missing here?

    • taurui

      It’s the brightest speedlight on the market, that’s what you’re missing 🙂 and it does some thing the SB-700 doesn’t, for example TTL mastering or a sub flash.

        The SB-700 can be a CLS commander, although it can only control 2 groups, not 3.

  • The color display doesn’t seem very appealing, I suspect it might suck battery power.

  • Yehey Parteh Parteh!

    Any recommendation?. Should I but Sb700 or Di866 or the new Di866 Mark 2? gonna use it mostly for School Events, Cosplay, and Toycon.
