The flash fires and its light is automatically controlled by the camera + flash TTL dedicated system.
Many photographers think of using a flash only at night or in poor lighting. However, a flash can be very useful in daylight too. Eliminate the shade under trees. Use fill-in lighting to sharpen the subject. Address catchlight in the eyes, and stop motion. Emphasize the lighting contrast. Enjoy more opportunities to use your flash.
Tired of your flash no longer working whenever a new camera comes onto the market ? A firmware upgrade service is available for the Di622 , which provides a service terminal to upload the latest software. A charge for the firmware update service will apply, varying depending on the area. Please check at your local dealer for details about the update service.
Please check the compatibility chart.
Di622 is compatible with Canon's E-TTL, E-TTLII system, and Nikon's i-TTL system.
Those new digital TTL flash systems control the flash light with greater precision and stability.
POWER ZOOM & TURNING FLASH HEAD
The light distribution angle is automatically adjusted for the lens focal length. A high quality stepping motor sharply traces the lens movement with the same speed as that of the camera manufacturer's original flash model.
The flash beam covers the frame from 14mm (with a wide angle diffuser built-in) to 70mm of the digital lens.(*) For a longer lens, the flash head reflector position stays at 70mm.
It turns 90 degrees upward and 270 degrees horizontally for bounce lighting.
The flash head also stores a small reflection panel for fill-in shots.
(*) The focal length for the traditional SLR camera is to be multiplied b a factor of 1.5.
OFF CAMERA FLASH
The Di622 has a special photo sensor built-in.
Place the Di622 off camera and the flash will synchronize with the master flash placed on your camera. This wireless remote flash system is called slave flash technology and is often used for a creative lighting efficiency.
Use the camera's built in flash, the camera manufacture's original flash or the Di622 as the master flash. Place one or more Di622 flash units away from the camera.
The sensor circuitry of Di622 is compatible only with the latest pre-flash TTL system offered by Canon or Nikon
The Di622 is not compatible with traditional flash systems or studio flash systems.
Energy saving system
The Di622 has a dual energy saving system.
It automatically enters sleep mode when it's not in use for 5 min., and is reset with a touch of the shutter button or any button of the flash.
If the unit is not in use for 30 minutes, it will automatically power off.
With the flash unit set for slave mode, sleep mode is cancelled and the unit will not automatically turn off until 60 minutes have elapsed.
G.No.44(ISO 100) is obtained at the reflector position for 105mm focal length lens, and 45 at 35mm.
When selecting manual power operation, choose from one of the six variable powers for the best lighting effect.
The power level is provided from full power (G.No.44) down to 1/32nd power in 1.0Ev increments.
AF Assist beam
In darkness or dim light conditions, the Di622 beams a red light to create a sharp contrast to enable the camera's focus sensor to focus easily on the subject.
Flash Power Lock system
The Di622 is compatible with either the FE lock (Canon) or FV lock (Nikon) system.
Refer to the camera owner's manual for details.
Rear curtainsynchro. system
Nikon and some Canon camerra's set the flash for rear curtain synch. photography.
