Nissin announces MG 8000 & PS 8 Power Pack Bundle deal


Nissin announces MG 8000 & PS 8 Power Pack Bundle deal

Official Press Release

Release Date: Friday June 28, 2013


Kenro, the official UK distributors of Nissin Flash Guns, are offering photographers
an exclusive deal when purchasing the Nissin MG 8000 Extreme Flash Gun together with
the PS 8 Power Pack. This new bundle deal represents a substantial saving compared
to buying them separately.

Explained Paul Kench, managing director of Kenro: "These two products combined make
the ultimate 'power couple' and the saving made is sure to be attractive. Having
just been awarded 'Best Portable Lighting System for 2013' in the prestigious TIPA
Awards, the MG 8000 has proved its might in the industry, and the PS 8 Power Pack
comes equipped with a range of innovative features to ensure your flash goes the
distance."

As the MG 8000 keeps its cool under pressure, it can maintain its guide number
meaning no more underexposed images caused by over-heating. When tested, the Nissin
MG 8000 can produce over 1000 full flashes without any fear of overheating; that's
three times more than a general flash.

The unit, which features the world's highest "Machine Gun" strobe, boasts an
impressive recycle time of just three seconds for the first 200 shots, and then five
to seven seconds for subsequent frames, making it ideal for photographers who work
fast and furiously. The Nissin MG 8000 is compatible with the E-TTL, E-TTL II
(Canon) and i-TTL (Nikon) SLR cameras.

Compatible with Canon, Nikon and Sony digital SLR cameras, the core boosting circuit
of Nissin Power Pack PS 8 has been redesigned to reduce the heat produced. It now
uses a high-strength plastic instead of a metal housing for the body. The
sophisticated design of the new PS 8 now includes a USB charging socket which
supports DC 5V output to provide maximum charging solutions for the photographer
on-the-go.

The Nissin MG 8000 and PS 8 Power Pack bundle deal is available now and has a
suggested retail price of £570 (incl VAT), in comparison to an SRP of £621 combined
(incl VAT) when purchasing both items separately.

Visit the Kenro website to find your nearest Nissin Stockist to ensure you don't
miss out on this excellent offer.

Marumi widens choice by adding new sizes to filter range

Kenro has announced the launch of several new filter sizes to Marumi's respected range of photographic accessories. 

Each Marumi Filter uses a specifically developed ultra-low reflection coating to minimise internal reflection off the camera's built-in CCD and CMOS Sensors. Other anti-reflect features include a special slim frame with satin smooth finish and a black ink process on the glass edge to eliminate flare. 

Now available in four new sizes between 37mm-46mm, the Marumi DHG Light Control ND Filter has been designed to improve the results of landscape photography along with other images captured in scenic environments. Best used in the golden hours of dawn and dusk, these filters work by reducing light volume, allowing the photographer to use slower shutter speeds under bright conditions, resulting in greater control and creativity. 

Photographers can now pick up one of Marumi's DHG Circular Polarising range in the newly added sizes of 86mm and 95mm. An ideal accessory for capturing water and other highly-reflective surfaces, Marumi DHG Circular Polarising Filters can be rotated to reduce reflection and also increase colour saturation under bright conditions, meaning photographers can create a more accurate depiction of the shooting environment. 

The two new sizes can also be seen in the DHG Super Circular Polarising range which incorporates the same features as the Digital High Grade range but with two added benefits; they feature water and oil repellent coating and also include increased protection even with heavy duty use. 

New 86mm and 95mm sizes are now also available within the Marumi DHG Lens Protect and Super Lens Protect Filter range. These colourless lens protection filters featuring a special ultra-low reflection coating are designed to minimise flare and ghosting on CCD and CMOS sensors. 

Thin mounts found on the filters have been made to prevent vignetting when used with a wide angle digital lens. Paul Kench, managing director of Kenro, made this comment:

 "Marumi are renowned for their expertise in constructing filters that provide greater creative opportunities, so we are delighted to see the increase in their already successful lines with additional sizes. There really is something for everyone in Marumi's range of filters that enable the photographer to get the very best out of their work." 

Other products in Marumi's range of photographic accessories include lens hoods and converters. 

See www.kenro.co.uk for details of your nearest stockist, or call Kenro on 01793 615836 for more details. The new Marumi filters sizes are available now.

AJAXNETPHOTO IMAGE ARCHIVES - IMPORTANT UPDATE


Friday, 20th April, 2012.

As some viewers may already be aware, AjaxNetPhoto >www.ajaxnetphoto.com< image archives have been hit by a coding glitch which has disabled both the search and image pages display functions.

AjaxNetPhoto web site pages are NOT affected except for the site link buttons which provide search and display functions for each image category and independent keyword searches.

This is the first time in several years of perfect functionality the archives have encountered a problem. Investigation indicates a wide range of coding errors and or bug possibilities in the hosting application and because of this and the time needed trying to fix the problem, AjaxNetPhoto has made a decision to move its image archive to a remote server. (see Head in The Clouds article in October 2011 issue of The British Journal of Photography for explanation of remote server utility.)

The file transfer process has been initiated but it may take several weeks before status is up to scratch.

Low resolution thumbnail galleries and image previews can be accessed using the following link;

>http://www.wuala.com/Jonathan_Eastland/Photos/AJAXNETPHOTO<

Once the page opens in a browser, clicking on GENERAL_ARCHIVES opens more image folders.

Click on any folder to open it and see image thumbnails.
Click on any image to open a larger preview image.
Download a preview image by clicking on the image name (bottom left of image).
Copy or Send an image (or other options) using CTRL+pad or mouseclick on an Apple Mac.

Alternatively, at the top right of the page under the 'Open in Wuala' button, viewers will see a button labeled 'detail view'. Clicking this button gives a list and object name of each image in any folder. Clicking the 'i' button to the right will open any image on the page.

Please note; gallery page viewing efficiency is user CPU, internet connection and browsing dependent. Some thumbnail images may not open instantly. Please wait or use the alternative click 'detail view' and return to 'thumbnail' to reload gallery pages.





Please monitor this blogsite for further updates.

Please feel free to use the recommend buttons at the foot of each gallery page.
