Fed up with fat flash­guns? Check out this com­pact yet pow­er­ful al­ter­na­tive The i40 man­ages to pack some se­ri­ous punch with its GN40 power rat­ing and fast re­cy­cle times. De­spite that, it’s around half the size of an av­er­age flash­gun and tips the scales at a feath­er­weight 304g, ready to shoot. Two di­als re­place a tra­di­tional LCD dis­play, mak­ing the i40 re­fresh­ingly sim­ple to use. Nissin has also man­aged to squeeze a handy video lamp and a highly-ad­justable flash head into this pe­tite pack­age. The price is a lit­tle steep, but the i40’s com­pact­ness and per­for­mance are worth the money.

Up­grade if you own...

a D-SLR with a pop-up flash (or in­deed with­out one) and you want a very com­pact flash with plenty of power and con­trol, but not if you al­ready own a Nikon Speed­light.

run­ner up... Ni kon SB-910

The i40 is great for trav­el­ling light, but de­mand­ing pho­tog­ra­phers will rel­ish the ex­tra con­trol and rapid re­cy­cling times of the SB-910. TTL me­ter­ing is also su­perbly ac­cu­rate and con­sis­tent.
