Kenro has announced the UK release of a new flashgun from Nissin, the Di466. The Di466 has been developed for digital SLR cameras with the latest TTL flash control technology. Two models are available, type C for Canon Cameras utilizing E-TTL and E-TTL11 technology and type N for Nikon Cameras with iTTL.

Flash exposure compensation is provided in six steps by half stop increments of -1.5, -1.0, -0.5, +0.5, +1.0, +1.5 by controlling a switch on the back panel.
