NISSIN MG8000 Extreme Flashgun with “Machine Gun” Strobe – for Canon
The Nissin MG8000 Extreme has, as of Spring 2012 the world’s fastest “Machine Gun” strobe. It is capable of firing an astounding 1000 flashes one after another without overheating, which is three times as good as most other flashes can manage.
How is this achieved? Well the gun features specially developed ceramic insulation and a unique quartz-based flash tube to keep things cool.
For the first 200 shots you get a recycle time of just 3 seconds, then 5-7 seconds for shots taken thereafter.
It’s a powerful flash with a Guide Number of 60 (ISO 100, 105mm) and features bounce and swivel. It also has a swivelling colour LCD monitor, front flare, detachable front diffuser and a metal contact shoe.
