- No display so using in manual mode is total guesswork.
Using as a slave relies on TTL not radio.
Swapped for Canon which is integrated with radio so you use that as a slave.

Fill-in reflector and Light diffusing panel
Fill-in reflector and Light diffusing panel installed.
Softbox Included in Package
Soften the flash and reduce shardows, it's suitable for fill-in flash in close distance (can be using with reflector)。
i40 has a wireless remote flash system as a slave unit.
You can enjoy creative flash photography with multiple lightings from the various directions. There are 3 slave modes provided.
Slave Digital (SD): i40 synchronizes to the pre-flash system. The master flash is to be set at TTL (E-TTL for Canon, i-TTL for Nikon and ADI/ P-TTL for Sony) mode.
Slave Film (SF): i40 synchronizes to the traditional single flash system. The master flash is to be set at manual mode. Studio lighting system synchronizes to this mode. This mode is also available for open flash, and for a standard flash in the market.

TTL FLASH LEVEL COMPENSATION
The power of the flash can be controlled with TTL flash level compensation. Whereas total exposure is controlled by the camera's EV compensation function, the flash can compensate for the exposure on the main subject only, with little impact on the exposure of the background scene.
The flash power level can be adjusted from -2EV through +2EV by 0.5EV steps.
A firmware upgrade service is available for the Nissin i40, 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.
