Hi, I just bought a nissin di866 flashgun and the unit sort of like emits a sound similar to electric shock although quite faint when swithed on but the sound goes away when the flashgun is turned off. What may be the problem ?

    Mine's a Nikon mount but I have yet to find a solution to it :( It's still working now though I am still afraid that it might just break down sometime soon.

  • Mine does the same every so often. Sounds like some short circuit. It flashes for about 10 to 15 times then stops, like the batteries are to weak to re-charge. I tried 2700mah Ni-mH rechargeables but still drained then. Any idea what it could be?

My flash will not flash. I have put in new batteries. The units responds to TTL and menu commands and switches on perfectly. Even the pilot lamp goes to green, however the bounce flash and fill flash do...

Mine does the same after 10 or 15 flashes. It gives you the impression that its drained the batteries, but I doubt it. I have a feeling its some short-circuit or overheating.

How to setup the canon 50 d to nissin di566 digital flash?

First check trigger voltage. This flash was not made for your camera. Just set camera to M, not Tv, Av.P. Set Shutter to 250 or less Set F Stop until you see correct exposure.
Get the Nissin Di866. I've sold and have some modification on this model. It's more powerful than the Canon 580EX II.
The cheaper model is Nissin Di622, which I also sells/services/supports.
