The Receiver Air R, announced by Nissin, is a new addition and game changer of the Nissin Air System (NAS). The revolutionary Receiver Air R, combined with the use of the Nissin Air 1 Commander, allows photographers to wirelessly control almost any kind of Nissin Digital flash and original manufacturers’ flashes.
NAS is Nissin’s newly developed 2.4GHz radio transmission wireless flash system. Compared to traditional optical wireless transmitters, 2.4GHz radio transmission is less susceptible to angle and obstacle limitations, and provides coverage up to 98 feet.
Recognized for developing innovative products, Nissin has included IDs technology in their newly developed NAS system. Radio transmission IDs give each of the NAS compatible devices a unique identity, and can be set to prevent misfiring in the event of signal interference on the same channel.
The new Receiver Air R makes photographers’ many popular flashes compatible with the Nissin NAS system. This means a photographer who currently owns a Nissin flash other than the Di700A, or a select Canon or Nikon (available in March) or a Sony flash later, will benefit from the launch of Receiver Air R. It can make a group of existing flashes compatible with the Nissin Air System, allowing full TTL, manual power output and zoom head positioning.
Now all these functions can be controlled wirelessly at a competitive price without giving up quality and reliability. Retail price for the new Nissin Receiver Air R is $69.99. For more about these and other Nissin flashes, visit their website www.minox.com/usa.
