Nissin Speedlite Di622 External TTL Flash for Nikon/Canon

I've just bought a shoe-mount flash for my Nikon D80 DSLR camera from a store in Makati City

It's a Nissin Speedlight Di466 Nikon-mount that supports Nikon's i-TTL function.

My first impressions and testing:

It's so easy to use: mount it on you camera, turn it on and use i-TTL mode and you can take pictures with proper exposure.

I tested the slave function to trigger it using my cameras's on-camera flash and it works like charm but only on manual mode. It has no support for other triggers except optical

It has a built-in diffuser for wide angle shots and a built-in bounce card.

Manual mode lets you choose from 6 power level with the touch of a single button.

It's cheaper than Nikon's SB-400 by 33% and better than SB-400. It has almost the same guide number as the Nikon SB-600 Speedlight. I bought the cheaper third-party flash instead of Nikon's due to cost constraints. I can't compare the recycle time with Nikon flashes for I really don't have experience with them

It has a sister slave flash, the Nissin Di466, but I don't intend to be a strobist, I just want to have the advantage of bounced flash for family events.

This will be updated to include other observations and caveats :P
