Nissin Japan discloses Machinegun Strobe
Nissin Japan showcased the MG8000 flash along with the MF18 Macroflash at CP+ 2012 trade show held in Japan last month. MF18 Macroflash was announced during the PMA @ CES. The flash dubbed “Machinegun Strobe” can deliver a continuous flash of 1000 times, when an optional power pack PS- 300 supplies power. The MG8000 uses a newly developed heat resistant quarts discharge lamp and heat resistant plastic material in the Fresnel lens in the front panel, preventing meltdown, deformation or burn of the panel. The MG8000 provides Guide Number 60 at 105mm and GN 40 at 35mm. Four AA type batteries usually power the unit. Canon and Nikon models will be available first on the home market this spring.
