Product Description

The Receiver Air R is a game-changing new addition to the Nissin Air System (NAS) 2.4GHz radio transmission wireless flash system. Compared with the traditional optical wireless transmitters, 2.4GHz radio transmission is less susceptible to the usual issues caused by not having clear line of sight between transmitter and receiver, and provides coverage of up to 30 meters (98 feet).

In addition, radio transmission ID technology gives each of the NAS-compatible devices a unique identity to prevent misfiring in the event of signal interference. The Nissin Commander Air 1 has been very well-received by camera users all over the world – the Receiver Air R adds a new dimension of flexibility to this already popular product.

Combined with the Nissin Commander Air 1*, it allows a photographer to wirelessly control almost any kind of Nissin camera flash and original manufacturer’s flash in the current market with NAS and TTL & HSS support. Camera users who currently own a Sony original flash will be able to make their existing flashes compatible with the Nissin Air System, utilising full TTL. High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 seconds, zoom and manual power output can all be controlled wirelessly at a competitive price without giving up quality and reliability.

What’s more, one Commander transmitter can control up to 21 separate Air R receivers, which can be programmed into three groups to give the camera user an almost limitless range of lighting options without having to spend precious time readjusting flashguns between shots. * Existing Commander Air 1 users: In order to control the Receiver Air R properly, the Commander Air 1 needs to be equipped with the latest firmware.
