Nissin Air 1

Yesterday I received another package. This time nice addition to the Nissin i60A flash: the Nissin Air 1 Commander:

The controller is small, compact and makes solid feeling, the same as the flash. It is powered by two AAA batteries. Pairing of the controller and flash is very simple and straightforward. But you definitely need to read the attached leaflet if you don’t want to spend hours inventing the correct way to do it πŸ™‚ But after you read the leaflet and know, it is really simple task. One time task, as both the controller and flash remember each other, so you don’t need to pair them again after power cycle.

So I got rid of the cable between the camera and the flash, what gives me much more flexibility and comfort. And now my macro set looks like that:

Using the above set I can do shots with such magnification:
