The Nissin i40 is an incredibly small flashgun, considering the features that it manages to pack in. With sensor technology surging ahead at an astounding speed, a lot of photographers believe that they do not need flash anymore to shoot in the dark. This TTL flash has a guide number of 40 (in metres, at ISO 100, when the zoom head is extended to 105mm). The flash comes with a diffuser dome to soften the light, but there are no gels included herewith.
It can be used wirelessly, but it is not possible to use this flash to command other flashguns. Nikon users (who don’t have a proprietary flash with video light) and Sony users (whose video flash is way more expensive) can consider the i40.  The output can be controlled in 9 steps to achieve the desired effect. The flash head is able to tilt upwards 90° and can rotate 180° in both directions, giving you complete 360° coverage. I powered the flash with 2000mAh NiMh batteries; the flash was ready to fire in approximately 3 seconds. In the TTL mode, the flash exposure compensation dial works in conjunction with the setting in the camera body.
If you have been wary of learning how to balance flash and ambient light, the i40 is one of the best flashguns to learn on. The amount of light being emitted can be adjusted on the fly, by simply moving the concerned dials.
Who should buy it? Street and travel photographers who appreciate simplicity, but still want maximum control. Why? The i40 is one of those rare flashguns that can be adjusted in very subtle ways, very quickly.

The only issue with long exposures and digital format is that the sensor heats up and can produce "hot spots" on the sensor which manifest themselves as bright pixels in the image although these are easily cloned out in post production. The one below of my old house is one of my first experiments with light painting and is a 2 minute exposure, f5 at ISO 100. Generally I set my ISO by using the lowest possible unless I need to get my shutter speed up.


At night I will vary my ISO depending on if I wish to capture the stars as they are (faster shutter speed) or trailing (slow shutter speed) as seen by the high ISO 3200 in my milky way image. Of all the questions I get asked about my photographs, How to do the oil and water abstracts is the question I get asked the most. After a lot of experimenting I found that adding a little washing up liquid to the water stopped the oil flattening out and gave me lots of oil bubbles. If you are not using a macro flash you could try additional lighting maybe a lamp, a higher ISO, slower shutter speed (tripod would be needed for this) and a wider aperture.
I`ve had a look in your gallery too, and I`m curious about how you make your drops so big and round? I just use plain water which I either spray on or for single drops I use a small medicine syringe. Definitely, what a fantastic website and illuminating posts, I will bookmark your website.Best Regards! That may not compare to some of its larger-sized but similarly priced competitors, but I don’t think that’s a problem. I could manage to get about 250 shots at full power, but after 200 full power flashes, the recycling time increases to more than 5 seconds. It can illuminate one person standing closeby, but does not make much of a difference when there is sufficient ambient light around. With no LCD menus to step through, it is the first advanced flash which is easy to navigate. It is tiny, versatile enough to interest the video enthusiast and while it may not have as much power as the flagships, it gives far easier and quicker control over the final photograph.
It’s the easiest way to get quick and complete control over lighting, ideal for a street photographer. Once added to your personalized homepage, just edit widget settings to select your desired view. The other method is to take a series of 30 second images and layer them together in post production, such as the image below. Essentially the amount of available light (rising sun) meant I was able to keep my ISO and Aperture the same for both images.

If there is anything I haven’t covered, please feel free to get in touch with me or leave a comment. I only have a macro adapter for my 35mm lens, not a proper macro lens but I’ll see how it goes! With the right use of lighting technique and a feature-filled tiny flash like the Nissin i40, I would answer that with a resounding NO. Increasing the ISO is an easy option to increase the power, especially as modern cameras perform well at higher sensitivities.


So you can use the flash easily with a standard zoom lens, and also get creative with tricks like shooting at a wide focal length but zooming the flash to 105mm for a more concentrated throw of light. In the Digital Slave mode, the flash ignores the preflash emitted by the built-in flash and it fires when the built-in flash throws the light for the final shot. But even while shooting in crowded places, the head never shifted from its normal position.
It took me back to yesteryears in the precalculator era, when complex calculations were done with the help of slide rule.
The only downside to this image is that, after laying in a field for 2 hours, I get home, spend an hour or so layering to discover that I had condensation on the bottom right of the lens. Generally (as primarily a landscape photographer using a tripod) my shutter speed isn't so much of an issue however aperture is important. I don't know if you just aren't capable of reading my statements or just choose to act stupid, but I've made my feelings on Clinton quite clear.
What do you mean with: position the flash heads so that the flash doesn’t bounce back of the water? For future reference the chemical hand-warmers can be wrapped around the lens to prevent this. This image is around 300 or so 30 second images layered upon the next.
For landscapes I'm generally shooting around f16 to enable me to get as much of the scene in focus.
Do you flash through a diffusor, against the wall, on the ceiling, against a white paper or just on 45 degrees?
But with relatively newer film cameras that have AF (like the F80, for instance), you need to use the Digital Slave mode to duck the preflash. Therefore if the light is low I have two options, reduce my shutter speed or increase my ISO.
I just wanted to tell you that, because it’s people like you who make me love more and more photography. Ausmus replied to Pale Horse's discussion General Election 2016 in the group The Great Debate"I think I said exactly what I'd like him to do.

    If you're shooting a motorbike race and need a little flash systems might be pretty spot-on most.
