Also, can't figure out how do I get the subflash to work when in wireless commander mode.. It works in in TTL mode
Why am I not getting a response for help with this product?
The Nissin NDMG8000N Extreme Heat Fighting Tube for Nikon had aroused my curiosity ever since I had seen that it had won the 2013 TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) Award in May as the "Best Portable Lighting System" in a fairly crowded field of products. My aging Nikon SB-600 Speedlight had been in service for almost a decade, and had lately been having some minor problems, so it was time to consider an upgrade while this one was being serviced, so this was picked up locally. This flash is available for both Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, though this review is focused specifically on the one for the Nikon models.
Getting down to the subjective points, here are my basic observations, followed by a deeper look at this flash unit.
+ First-rate flash output; fast recycling times and stable color temperature (about 5600K)
+ Quartz flash tube; reduces heat issues, repeated full flash without overheating
+ Extremely Powerful; GN 60/198 at 105mm focal length (ISO 100 m/ft)
+ Full-featured control panel; color coded, easy to use at a glance
+ Control panel automatically rotates to horizontal and vertical positions.
+ Unique sub/fill flash under main head; gives fill-in light while bouncing the main flash
+ Full TTL metering; Nikon i-TTL modes are covered
+ Highly compatible; from D2 to D7100, most Nikon DSLR models are covered
+ Excellent build quality; solid in all respects
+ USB service port; firmware can be updated when needed
+ Flash diffuser included; fits in base of included soft pouch case
+ Two-year US warranty; limited, etc.
- Eats batteries, as might be expected; more on this later
◆ First impressions:
This Nissin NDMG8000N comes packaged in a no-nonsense grey box which lists its key features on the outside. Inside you'll find the following items:
▪ MG8000 flash unit
▪ External flash diffuser
▪ Soft pouch case with section for the diffuser
▪ Small flash stand with tripod screw in the base
▪ Basic instruction sheet
It's immediately apparent that this is a well-crafted flash unit, and everything has a feeling of quality and precision. The main head swivels without drooping, and the vertical bounce angles click into position in a precise fashion. This flash uses four AA alkaline or Ni-MH rechargeable cells, so I loaded it with some freshly charged eneloop XX 2500mAh Typical / 2400 mAh Minimum, High Capacity AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries for its initial run-through.
That original trial was interesting in that it was one to explore all of the functions, and was only on my Nikon D5000 as it has an external battery grip since I was going for a bit of a stress test. The recycling was fast, regardless of the mode used, from automatic to i-TTL to manual. It became apparent that it would be wise to keep spare batteries on hand, as I was getting between ~150 to 350 flashes from a single set depending on the mode used. Your results may differ depending on the batteries used and which flash mode is being employed.
◆ In Use:
The best way to explain this Nissin MG8000 flash unit is to start at the unique control panel on the back of the unit, as that's where its real functionality lies. This color display automatically rotates to allow for operation in either horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) positions, which is a nice touch. The various operational modes are accessed from the intuitive multifunction selector on the back of the unit, and are color coded, adding to its overall ease of use. This is a brief description of the various modes to be found on this flash unit:
Full Automatic Mode (Green)
This is the default mode when the flash is turned on, and for many it will be the one most frequently employed for general photographic use. It will work when the modes are set on the camera as: Auto (Full Auto), P (Program), S (Shutter priority), A (Aperture priority), and M (Manual). Depending on your Nikon model, it will also work with the Night, Macro, Sport, Kids, Scene, and Portrait settings. The flash power is automatically controlled by the camera, and when the focal length of the camera lens is changed, the flash responds instantaneously setting the light source for the proper illumination angle. The lens focal length is also shown in the display screen of the flash unit, from 24mm to 105mm (in full-size 35mm format).
TTL Program Mode (Blue)
Like the Nikon i-TTL flash control system, the flash level is automatically controlled by the camera for the most appropriate exposure. You can soften or weaken the flash or give the subject more or less light without changing the environmental or background exposure effect. TTL flash exposure compensation is provided in 19 steps in 0.3Ev increment, from -3.0 to +3.0Ev. It functions in the Auto, P, S, A, and M modes as set on the camera.
Manual Setting Mode (Brown)
Setting the camera mode to A or M, the flash power can be adjusted manually to most appropriate power in combination with the aperture value set on the camera, with 22 different power settings. This ranges from full power to 1/128 power, in 1/3 stops as needed.
Multiple Flash Mode (Red)
One of the most creative settings, this one is used by setting the camera mode to M, and allows for repeat flash or stroboscopic sequences. In this mode, the power level, frequency and the number of flashes are set on the flash unit in advance. Uncontrolled manual power is provided in 5 steps, from 1/8 to 1/128 power, and flash times from 1 to 90 times can be set.
Wireless Remote Flash Mode (Yellow)
Setting the camera mode to Auto, P, S, A, or M modes, this setting allows for two options of off-camera wireless remote flash system. This is too complex to explain in a review here, and the manual can be downloaded from Nissin. In a nutshell, there is a wide combination of flash models and cameras that can be used for pairing as master and remote flash units.
Custom Setting Mode (Purple)
This setting allows you to customize the MG8000 flash in a wide variety of ways. For example, auto off timing can be selected from 10 to 60minutes. The display panel can be turned off to save on batteries or if it's not necessary. The distance indication can be set by feet or meters here, and if a firmware upgrade service is ever needed, this is where it is accessed. And the custom setting can be reset to the default factory settings here.
◆ Other Observations:
The external flash diffuser proved to be invaluable, especially when used in a bounce flash mode. The small fill flash located just under the main flash head worked beautifully to act as a lower-power `main' light when used in the Full Automatic Mode (Green setting) mode, where I found myself frequently returning for most shooting situations.
As far as the i-TTL functionality goes, I've used the MG8000 flash with the Vivitar FCNIK Flash Cord for Nikon Digital Cameras as well as the Nikon SC-28 TTL 9-ft. Remote Cord, and it has performed as expected. I've used this flash with my (now aged) Nikon D200, the D7100, the aforementioned D5000 and a borrowed Nikon D800. The flash performed equally well with DX and FX-format DSLRs using a variety of lenses, and few adjustments were needed to achieve the exposures that I wanted. The closest comparison that I can make is that it was like using a Nikon SB-910 Speedlight, but with a better, easier to use display panel and a small fill flash built into the unit. The Nissin MG8000 also has a two-year warranty whereas the one for the Nikon SB-910 is for one year.
As noted earlier, this flash does like batteries, so I picked up a couple of the Nissin NDBM01 Battery Compartment for Di 466 & Di 866 Flashes (NDBM-01). This battery magazine is the same as used with the Nissin Di866 Mark II and Di466 flash units, and offers the convenience of having all four AA-size batteries in the same direction, so the cells can be inserted correctly even in low light conditions. These have worked well for quick changes, and they also have a cover so that when they are not in use the batteries are protected. For those who need more power, look for the Nissin Power Pack PS300, which offers high speed charging and faster recycling. I have not tried this, as the battery magazines have fit my needs quite well.
If we look at the cost of this unit and other pro grade on-camera flash units for Nikons, it seems to be well placed, considering its overall performance... but value is a relative thing. Looking back at that Vivitar 283 from the early '70s, it had a cost of about $100 at the time from my recollection. Used a few of the online money calculators and checking 1973 vs. 2013, they came up between $525 and $540, calculating the value of a dollar using the CPI (Consumer Price Index) from December of the previous year. All calculations are approximate, but considering all that this Nissin MG8000 flash offers, it's quite a good buy considering its excellent performance.
The Nissin NDMG8000N Extreme Heat Fighting Tube for Nikon has proven to be a flash that has exceeded my expectations, both in terms of overall quality and performance. If you are a news, sports, or events shooter and your needs are for fast recycling and reliability, this MG8000 keeps putting out lots of light quickly. It recycles fast even at full power from just four AA cells. Putting it simply, it's a highly recommended 5-star product that is solid, innovative and fast.
Next I found out that in manual mode (which I use all the time) it can't operate faster than 1/32 in FP mode. IOW if camera is set for faster than the sync speed flash will operate at 1/32 or slower. This wastes battery life because ISO would have to be decreased otherwise speed over 1/320 on D800 can't be used. I had to buy the second battery magazine so it would last me all day of flash shooting with the external battery pack.
Nikon SB910 lasts me all day on one set of batteries with external battery.
And in manual mode in the bright sun it can't be used because of too much power at 1/32.
This flash also does not come with the white card. They supply white dome instead. That means more wasted light if you you want light not to go high like with the white card extended not to mention if you use this flash on the forward bracket white dome will flare your short lens.
I would not recommend this flash at all.
Nikon SB910 can operate at any speed.
