NiceFoto.cn have announced the new TR400 and TR600, which will be the companies first portable wireless strobes with Remote Manual Power Control, and HSS (High Speed Sync).
NiceFoto were one of the first with Lithium-Ion powered, all in one wireless strobes, with the N-Flash range of lights. The N-Flash have the battery and radio receiver neatly built into the strobe, so there are completely free of cords and extremely fast to set up.
Nicefoto started off very strong with the innovative N-Flash, though refinement and further development has been a little slow since. They are stepping things up now though. And the one major feature missing from the N-Flash range, being remote manual power control, has now been addressed with the coming TR400 and TR600 strobes.
The TR units will also include the HSS function for Canon and Nikon seen in other recent models. The new TR strobes will also feature a sleek touch screen interface –
The business end of the interface though will be the new transmitter unit, with large clear power level display.
3 groups, 16 channels, and LED modelling light control. As well as pass through hotshoe on top.
Its hard to read the specs below, though we know these are roughly 400WS and 600WS Bowen’s mount units. If the battery remains the same 12v 6000mAh as the current 600WS units, you can expect up to 320 pops at full power, and 3 second recycle times.
The transmitter units will be available in Canon and Nikon compatible versions, allowing HSS and Second Curtain Sync with corresponding cameras.
Price and availability of the TR400 and TR600 are not yet available, though these are definitely looking to be a light to keep an eye out for now.
The current N-Flash range has been popular with wedding photographers, and even many real estate photographers due to the very fast set up and hand holding portability. Though the lack of remote manual power control with a good radio system has left them a little behind other options. The TR400 and TR600 are set to change that.
There are even rumours of some 800WS N-Flash coming eventually.
