New Nissin i60A Speedlight with 2.4GHz Radio Receiver announced


Nissin announced a new Flash for Micro 4/3rds cameras. Here is the full Press release:

Nissin have announced a new compact, though high powered, i60A TTL and HSS enabled speedlight, with 2.4GHz radio receiver built inside.

The i60A will be Nissin’s second speedlight after the Di700A, to be compatible with the NAS (Nissin Air System) and Air 1 radio Commander unit.

Although the i60A will be available in Canon, Nikon, Sony, Micro 4/3rds, and Fujifilm, mount versions for on-camera TTL use, all versions will cleverly include Canon, Nikon, and Sony, TTL radio slave modes for off camera use (with corresponding Air 1 Commander units).

Following the success of the very compact Nissin i40 speedlightes, the i60A follow the same format, though squeeze in extras including –

  • A higher guide number – 60m (ISO 100 / 200mm)
  • 24 – 200MM Zoom
  • Color LCD Display
  • HV Battey Port
  • Built-in 2.4GHz NAS Radio Receiver

All into a package that’s not much larger than the original i40, and should still appeal to many mirrorless and compact camera owners.


The i60A also improve upon the Di700A speedlight, providing a higher guide number (60m vs 54m), and 1/3rd stop Manual power level graduations instead of 1/2 stops. As well as 1/256th minimum power level.


  • GN 60m (ISO 100 / 200mm)
  • HSS to 1/8000th
  • Flash Modes –TTL /M
  • 1st Curtain Sync / 2nd Curtain Sync
  • FEC – 0.3 EV Increments (±2 stops)
  • Manual Flash – 1/256 – 1/1 output control (1/3rd stop increments)
  • 24 – 200mm Auto and Manual Flash Zoom
  • NAS 2,4GHz Radio Receiver Built-in (Canon, Nikon, & Sony, Compatible)
  • A/B/C Groups
  • 8 Channels
  • TTL Optic Wireless Slave Mode
  • Basic Optic Save Mode S1, S2
  • LED Light
  • AF Assist Light
  • Color LCD Panel
  • Quick Select Dials
  • 90 Degree Tilt, 360 Degree Swivel Head
  • External HV Battery Port
  • Quick Lock Foot

Although retaining the popular quick select style dials from the i40, the i60A now feature a compact full color LCD display.


Manual Power Levels are provided and displayed on 1/3rd stop increments, from 1/256 to 1/1.

TTL Flash Exposure Compensation (FEC) is also shown in 1/3rd stop graduations, from -2 to +2.



Used wirelessly off camera as a radio slave flash to the Nissin Air 1 Commander the i60A will provide  –

  • TTL
  • HSS to 1/8000th
  • Rear Curtain Sync
  • Remote Manual Power Control
  • Remote Zoom Control
  • 3 Groups A / B / C


And conveniently all versions of the Nissin i60A provide Canon, Nikon, and Sony, radio slave modes built-inside.

So for example a Canon mount Nissin Air 1 commander, mounted on a Canon Camera, could control a Nikon mount i60A speedlite off camera, providing full ETTL, HSS, SCS, etc.

And Di700A speedlites can also be mixed in with the i60A as radio slave flashes. Nissin also have a separate radio receiver units coming soon as well.
