sony hvl-58m flash or nissin di866 mk 2 for wedding?
Jan 18, 2013

Hello I have an oportunity to buy a used sony hvl-58am flash for just a little more than a new nissin ... what are the mai differences?

Does the Nissin has a working modeling light that works off camera (it will be used in softbox off camera for wedding)?

I have heard the nissin is powerfull at 35mm setting (probably the one I will be using with the softbox)40 GN against 35GN in the Sony but there are reports of overheating with the Nissin and it doesn´t know the focal lenght on aps-c cameras and it doesn´t recognize camera iso in Aperture mode....

Probably I will buy the sony. Is it too big/heavy to be used with sony a57?

Sony SLT-A57
