- Power setting from full to 1/64 power
- Optical slave, including preflash-ignore feature
- Electronically zooming flash head
- Swivelling and tilting flash head, including 7° downwards tilt so you can point the flash more directly into the centre of an umbrella.

The LP160 was on show at the 2010 Professional Imaging convention in Nieuwegein and will be available in late March.
