Nissin was founded in 1959 and released their first professional oriented flash, PRIMO, in 1967. In 1987 Nissin introduced its first dedicated auto focus flashes with the now common red beam auto focus assist light. 2007 brought with it, the Nissin Di622; the first in the new line up of flashes designed specifically for the emerging digital SLR market.
Many award-winning flashes were to follow including the Di866, MG8000, i40, Di700A to name a few. Nissin continues to think outside of the box with innovative new products continually coming to market.
