Nissin i40 Flash WARNING
8 months ago

A warning for anyone who is considering buying the Nissin i40 flash unit. I suspect that this will be a generic defect with the unit rather than a issue with my particular sample, although it would be good for other users to contribute to help confirm this.

The text markings on the unit's dials and buttons are of poor quality and, with my sample, have rubbed off through contact with the inside of my camera bag (soft fabric lining) over a period of approximately 6-8 weeks. Once the text has started to rub off it is possible to rub it off completely by further (gentle) rubbing with your finger (finger, not finger nail!).

The flash unit has no LCD screen and so the markings on the buttons are the only way to tell what the flash settings are set to. This issue makes the operation of the flash a real problem.
