    was looking at di 622 and di 866 his initial advise is di622 is most useful in most of time but i end up choosing the di866 due to the build slightly better more comprehensive settings and specs

    i got no link with slr revo just saw this thread and went to make my purchase
    Good price!
    Is the interface on the back of the flash unit easy to use?

    There's another thread that says the Di866 is selling at TCW at $360 incl GST. Didn't check at the shop so cannot confirm. Anyone tried?

    580EXII can be had for $750~, and personally I would only buy Canon flashes for use on camera. Nissins maybe for off-camera lighting if I'm on a budget

    the price tells all as for build its for canon 580exii its weather proof , just buy something to yr needs if yr for work guess just go for canon , if for hobby DI866 will serve u very much of a use .u can go down have a look at the flash itself too frankly speaking for the price of nissin its really for bang for bucks value for money for a flash at this price with the specs very near to 580exii

    anyway 450 for is abit expensive for market price

    Anyway I was only looking at the 866. OP selling at 400. Reddot selling at 410. But Reddot offer a purchase with purchase offer. If you get the flash at 410 you get to buy imedions at $10. In the end they work out to be the same. I already have a lot of eneloops lying around at home.

    Looking at SLR Revolution, their prices are the best at this point in time. They are the new kid on the block, so I do not know how long the good prices will last. Buy now while you can. I do not know how long the honeymoon will last.

    Nissin was saying they were going to upgrade the firmware of 622 to be compatible as a CLS slave in end Oct/ beginning Nov timeframe. Haven't happened yet. So I will keep using my SB600 single flash for now. Just keeping my options open.
    thanks for your advice, daredevil..

    anyway, i bought my Di622 today. not a new one, but still in very good condition wit 5mths warranty left. The guy sold me at $180 with all the original package+ a hard diffuser....

    not too bad, he really take good care of it, looks exactly like brand new! tried it out justnow, very powerful...and i am satisfied with it....i thk wit have more things to explore and learn with an external flash added into my system...
