The Nikon version of the Tuff TTL flash trigger is coming next month, Hähnel says. The durable devices allow a photographer to take a flashgun off the camera while maintaining automatic i-TTL exposure control.
Like the earlier Canon variant, the system will have a 200-metre operating range, working on the 2.4GHz frequency band with automatic “Digital Channel Matching” (DCM). Transmitter and receiver units will each run on a pair of AA batteries, with a mini-USB port providing external power, firmware updates and manual sync with studio lights.
According to the manufacturer, “most TTL flash guns” will be supported, along with the current crop of Nikon digital SLR cameras. The price will be £99 per kit and around £50–60 per additional receiver.
We will be getting our hands on this product as soon as we can and put it head-to-head with the competing Yongnuo YN-622N to see how the two compare.
