The Nissin MG8000 Extreme flashgun for Canon features the world's fastest “Machine Gun” strobe. Nissin has developed a new ceramic insulation for the inside of the gun as well as a unique quartz-based flash tube which ensures the unit remains cool, even in extreme use conditions. In testing, the MG8000 produces over 1000 full flashes without any fear of overheating; that's three times more than a general flash. The new unit boasts an impressive recycle time of just three seconds for the first 200 shots, and then five to seven seconds for subsequent frames. The main features of the MG8000 are a maximum guide number of 60 (ISO100, 105m), bounce and swivel head, rotating colour LCD screen E-TTL/E-TTLII metering, fill in flash, external power pack capability and USB connectivity for upgrades.
Extreme High Heat Resistance and Quartz Tube Design
High heat resistant materials and a quartz tube design significantly reduce the heat effects. In tests continuous firing of over 1000 full flashes has been acheived.
Wide Angle Flash Diffuser
The included Wide Angle Flash Diffuser is ideal for use with full frame digital SLR camera allowing you to cover a wider field of view and soften shadows.
Power Pack Option
The high-performance MG8000 can be used in conjuntion with the Nissin Power Pack PS300 or PS8 speeding up the recycling time.
A firmware upgrade service is available for the MG8000 Extreme via the included USB terminal.
Colour and Auto Rotate Display
The Colour LCD screen will automatically rotate and follow the camera angle in Landscape and Portrait modes and six user friendly icons (Auto, TTL, Manual/Av, Multi, Wireless TTL (Master/Remote) and Custom Setting) make operation straight forward and easy.
Functions – TTL, Manual/Av, Multi Flash
TTL: Supporting Canon E-TTL/E-TTL II or Nikon i-TTL/i-TTL-BL. The flash output is automatically controlled by the camera but the flash exposure value can be compensated manually.
Manual: Flash power can be adjusted manually across 22 levels, from full power to 1/128 power at 1/3 stops. The distance to the subject is shown in the display in accordance with the aperture value set on the camera.
Av priority: The flash output can be automatically controlled by the photo sensor built into the flash unit instead of TTL metering. The F. Stop can be set from F1.4~F16. The distance at the F-stop set on the flash and camera is shown in the display.
Multi Flash: The power ratio can be set from 1/8 to 1/128.
Off Camera Flash
The MG8000 Extreme Wireless TTL system supports both Canon and Nikon wireless TTL systems. The MG8000 Extreme can be used jointly with Canon and Nikon original flash as either Master or Remote (Slave).
The MG8000 Extreme also supports digital (pre-flash system) and analogue (film type camera’s flash and/or studio flash) in both Manual and Av. priority mode.
Multi-Flash: Repeating/strobe flash for multi-exposure image on one frame. The power ratio can be set from 1/8 to 1/128.
The MG8000 Extreme provides an extra fill-in flash (GN12) situated just below the main flash. This small flash gives a fill-in light while bouncing the main flash. Bouncing the light may cast shadows on the underside of a subjects face, and this fill-in flash helps to remove them. The power ratio ofthe Fill-in Flash can be set from 1/1 to 1/128
TTL exposure levels are accurately calibrated for standard balance in accordance with Nissin’s standard. If however any adjustment is required, or if you like to set your own prefered level, it can be adjusted from +3Ev. to -3Ev. by 1/3 steps.
Quick Loading Battery Magazine
The MG8000 Extreme has the same battery magazine system as the Di866 Mark II and Di466 whereby all four AA-size batteries slot in the same direction, so that the batteries can be correctly and easily inserted even in poor light conditions.
External Power Pack Socket:
The MG8000 Extreme can be powered via the optional Nissin Power Pack PS300.
MG8000 Extreme has X-terminal socket for flash synchronization.
USB Service Port:
MG8000 Extreme provides a USB port to update the latest firmware.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
