The “machine gun” MG8000 flashgun — capable of firing 1,000 full power shots without overheating — will be blasting its way on to shelves this autumn. The Japanese speedlight manufacturer Nissin Digital have announced the release date for the device to be in October 2012.
Though the head lacks a built-in, flip-out wide-angle diffuser, one will be included in the box. Coupled with an external battery pack (such as Nissin’s own PS300), the firm claims the MG8000 will deliver “blazing fast” speeds and “extreme” performance for professional photography applications.
