New Nissin MG10 for Micro Four Thirds announced


Nissin announced the new MG10 which will be available later this year for MFT. Here is the press text:

Nissin Announces New MG10
Advanced 2.4GHz Wireless TTL Strobe

New England Imaging Dist. (NEID), the North American distributor of Nissin Digital Products, in conjunction with Nissin Japan Limited, has introduced the new MG10, an advanced NAS (Nissin Air System) 2.4GHz wireless strobe for both on-camera and studio photography. This new innovative flash will be available July 2018.
Designed as a multi-purpose flash, the Nissin MG10 can take you from the fast pace of a model runway shoot, to an outdoor scene where high power for HSS shooting is a must. Whether you are working quickly with the flash on camera or creating stunning lighting effects with off camera flash or in a studio setting, the Nissin MG10 has you covered.
With a guide number of 262 feet (80 meters) and 165 watt seconds, this high-power advanced MG10 strobe is the latest addition to the award-winning Nissin Air System, a proprietary wireless TTL communication system developed by Nissin for 2.4GHz radio transmission.
The hand grip can be used to mount the flash on either the left or right side of the camera with height level adjustment. There’s also a shutter release button on the handle and standard ¼-inch, 20 adapter under the flash head for mounting to a light stand. Every MG10 includes a magnesium quick release mounting “L” bracket, AA battery magazine (batteries are not included), Li-Ion battery magazine, ball head, filter holder and wide-angle diffuser. It also fully supports Air 10s and Air 1 wireless commanders.
The Nissin Digital patented removable external motorized zoom head allows the MG10 to zoom from 24~200mm, to 18mm with diffuser. With the Air 10s Commander, the zoom head can be controlled manually or set to synchronize with the lens focal length even when the strobe is used off camera. Other features include:

– Fast recycling time with full power – 1.5 seconds when using Li-ion batteries with Nissin PS8 power pack; 3.5 seconds when using eight AA batteries.
– High power modelling lights (LED) – See your lighting set up before you take the shot.
– Pair MG10 with Air10s – The Open mode allows multiple Air10s units to pair with MG10 strobes, allowing for multiple commanders to control the same set of strobes.
– Independent control with a maximum of 8 groups – The MG10 will support 4 groups of strobes in both the basic and advanced modes.
– Sustainable performance, easily updated via a Micro SD card slot – The MG10 is equipped with a Micro SD card slot for easy updates. Nissin plans on including a Micro SD card slot in all future strobes and commanders.

MSRP for the Nissin MG10 in the United States is $599.99 for the MG10 alone, $699.99 for the MG10 with Air10s. Delivery in the United States for Nikon, Canon and Sony kits is expected mid-July. Kits for micro four-thirds and Fuji later this year.
Nissin Air System (NAS) is a proprietary wireless TTL communication system developed by Nissin for 2.4GHz radio transmission that allows for stable operation of slave strobes in any environment. For more information on Nissin products go to Follow Nissin on Facebook (, Instagram ( and YouTube (
