NISSIN Air 10s TTL Commander – Announced

NISSIN AIR 10s

 

Nissin have announced a new Air 10s Commander unit for their TTL and HSS enable 2.4GHz Nissin Air System (NAS), which currently includes the i60A and Di700A Speedlites.

The Air 10s Commander will be available in Canon, Nikon, Sony, Micro 4/3, and Fujifilm versions.

Though conveniently any version of the transmitter can also control any version of the i60A and Di700A Speedlites, providing full TTL and HSS (where applicable).

Significantly, Nissin will now be the second manufacture to provide a version of “Hybrid TTL”. Allowing a shot to be taken quickly with TTL, and then converted at the press of a button to corresponding manual power levels for further refinement.

    I like that interface! Press a group, turn a dial, done. Haven’t seen anything that intuitive since the PocketWizard AC3 or my old RadioPopper JrX with it’s little dials. Nice to see they’re supporting some of the less popular systems as well.

      Agreed. The interface looks very intuitive. I only wonder how easy it will be to turn that dial. If it’s reasonably easy, looks like they’ll have a big winner.

      I just hope they come out with some great strobes. Speedlights are fine for many applications. But for big modifiers, only strobes will do.

        Hi Ricardo,

        Regarding larger strobes, there is a big hint their with the modelling light control on the transmitter (which otherwise currently has no use).

        Nissin have been behind with the off camera radio system for some time. Though all they need now is something like a 300-400Ws cordless strobe, and a radio master speedlite, and they will be giving Godox a serious run for their money if Godox can’t step up their master speedlites.

        • Ricardo 4 months ago

          Agreed Elvis. I’m just a bit cautious about investing in a full ecosystem if I don’t feel it’s a long-term investment. Godox has been my first pick and hope they come out with a MFT controller that can control their speedlites and strobes.

          This Nissin Air 10s is some nice looking gear. Hope to see real-world usage reports soon.

    Welcome to the wireless radio triggering train, Nissin. You’re just 2 years too late.

    I used to love Nissin strobes a lot, but they’ve simply been overrun by Chinese manufacturers like Godox. When I tested my Di866MkII against the Godox V860II, the Godox won hands down (and I got me another one).
    They offer a better system and a bigger product range for less the money. Meanwhile, Nissins flagship model (MG8000) is 5 years old, costs the same like a Godox AD360-II (which is worlds better) and the newest flash they have to offer against Godox is the midrange Di700A. They really need to step up their game, if they want to remain relevant.

    My only complaint with the Air system for Sony is that one can not have a speedlite on camera and also control remote speedlites.

    I became addicted to that with the Canon 600EX-RT and now use the same capabilities with the Godox X System.
