Nikon P7000 with Nissin Di866 Mark II
Oct 29, 2011

I'm really sick and tired of my YN-560 with P7000. I'm really tensed when I'm taking photo's coz I have to manually enter flash levels + zoom to the YN-560 throughout changing lightning conditions and distance to subject.

Anyway, I want to buy a powerful TTL flash for my Nikon P7000 under 300USD... so the Nissin Di866 Mark II comes to mind. I already HAVE a Nissin Di622 Mark II which is apparently not working with the P7000 in TTL mode (works only in Manual mode).

My question is will the di866 Mark II fire in TTL mode with the P7000? or will it be a pain in the neck like Di622 Mark II and ask me to use manual mode which I'm trying to avoid!!!

Photo 1 : Over exposed - Lowers level
Photo 2 : Under exposed - Increases Level
Photo 3 : Fine Exposure! P7000 goes out of focus!!!! Nooooooooo
Photo 4 : Fine Focus, YN-560 misfires!!! Dash the whole thing on the ground....

A day to day scenario of my photography life :'(
