NiceFoto, the Shenzhen-based photographic lighting manufacturer, will this year introduce two ranges of portable studio flashes with integrated batteries, wireless control, high-speed sync and TTL metering.
The TTL-480C, TTL-680C, RQ400, RQ600 and RQ800 are all monolights powered by removable lithium-ion batteries, or from the wall via an optional AC adapter. The RQ series has a slightly larger battery, with a slicker new casing, whereas the TTL series are based on the form factor of the earlier N-Flash Wireless Studio Flash. Each unit has a Bowens S-type accessory mount, a large LCD control panel, a removable tilt bracket that doubles up as a handle, and a 5-watt LED modelling lamp.
The 2.4GHz radio transmitter, called the TX-C01, supports direct wireless control of the flashes in 3 different groups (A, B and C) in seven combinations and over 16 channels. On Canon DSLRs it will provide TTL and high-speed sync support. A Nikon i-TTL-compatible transmitter is also planned, though no word on other camera brand support yet.
